This small brewery was three stories in height, and like many structures in the Sandusky area, was built of limestone, of which there was a natural abundance in the region. George Baier (also spelled Beier, Bier) was a Bavarian immigrant, born in 1821, who appears to have started brewing operations (and a small adjacent cooper shop) there in 1857. Two years later he formed a partnership with Prussian immigrant Charles T. Pusch (also spelled Bush). Although Pusch sold his interest to Baier after a fire damaged the brewery in 1866, it appears that Pusch continued to work in the rebuilt brewery for several years afterward.
In 1873, brewing operations were taken over by Nicholas Wagner, who then closed the plant for good one year later. The plant was later converted into a pickle factory, then a dairy, and more recently has been used for storage. The malt house of the plant remains standing to this day, and was entered into the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
I also heared there was a night crawler form in basement.
The dairy that used this old brewery was Peoples Dairy Of Sandusky Ohio. My grandfather was Roy "Gipe" Steffenhagen. He was president and CEO. His Brother Allen Steffenhagen
treasurer. I can't remember what years the dairy was there. If you know , please contact me. Thank you.
