Located in the "Brewers Hill" area of Baltimore, the Gunther Brewery stands vacant, awaiting its inevitable transformation into mixed residential and commercial use structures. Dating back to the early 1900s, the property took its first steps as a beer brewing operation for the George Gunther, Jr. Brewing Company. While successful, Gunther was acquired by the larger Hamm's Brewing Company, who was in turn bought out by the F.& M. Schaefer Brewing Company. Both companies preserved the Gunther brands until the brewery was closed in 1978.
