Many years ago, this was the home of Hock Hocking Beer, made by the Hocking Valley Brewing Company in Nelsonville. This establishment began in 1905. Its product was consumed by many of the coal miners and brick makers that populated the area. There was a long pause in beer production during the prohibition years (1920-1933). During this time, the brewing company produced soft drinks. After 1933, the beer barrels started rolling again until 1950. The building slowly deteriorated until it was demolished in 2009. This picture is from September 2008.
