The Historic Hamm Brewery 
Neighborhood Initiative 
A Brief Sketch 
   When the Stroh Brewery closed its Saint Paul plant, it signaled the beginning of the Historic Hamm Brewery Neighborhood Initiative. Now community members are working with the owner of the Brewery complex to develop the best use of this historic 30 acre complex. It is in the center of one of Saint Paul's most historic neighborhoods, five  minutes from downtown. The brewery is at the head of Swede Hollow Park, nestled between Dayton's Bluff and Railroad Island, along the Phalen Creek Recreational Trail, and numerous ecological amenities, at the end of Old Town Payne Avenue, the commercial heart of East Side Saint Paul. 
   The Historic Hamm Brewery Neighborhood Initiative is an informal collaborative of interested parties that have come together because we believe that the complex offers unique opportunities for business and technology development, education, arts and entertainment. The older buildings with their high ceilings, natural lighting, and neighborhood surroundings make the brewery an ideal location to be renovated into studios, performance spaces, galleries, class rooms, and other art and educational space. 
   Housing, offices and other functions may find the brewery to be an ideal location. The Historic Hamm Brewery Neighborhood Initiative seeks to find partners that are interested in pursuing the renovation of part of the brewery complex into a multi-use arts based community center in Saint Paul.
 
Light Industrial opportunities
The brewery has a number unique buildings that could give a business an air of old time elegance and be part of a exciting new business community.
