What’s Brewing at Schmidt?

by Doug Mack

The Schmidt Brewery is the castle of Saint Paul’s West End neighborhood. It was once a major employer and the focal point of a community, but now, like so many real castles, its glory days are over, its status diminished. The structure still looms over West Seventh Street, the main artery feeding from the airport and points beyond to downtown Saint Paul, but its doors are shut and its facilities no longer operate.
