: Dated ca. 1900, this photograph shows the back of the Hoster Brewing Company building at 760 Harmon Avenue in German Village in Columbus, Ohio. Hoster Brewing Co. was founded in 1836 and was producing 300,000 barrels per year in the early 20th century. However, the brewery closed in 1919 due to the Eighteenth Amendment which established the prohibition of alcoholic beverages. In the 1990s, Hoster Brewing Co. reopened as a brewery and full service restaurant, but closed in 2002 with the diminishing popularity of microbreweries in Columbus and the opening of many small restaurants in the area.
