The Old Castle Brewery Building – A.D. 1901…a brief history:

This brewery is the second brewery of American design to be erected in South Africa. The New York architect and Engineer, H Steinmann designed it. The construction period was from 1900 to 1902.

The structure is entirely fireproof, having skeleton steel frames, as buildings not built with this system were a constant fire hazard in Cape Town. The steel frames, the building material as well as the entire brewing equipment were exported from the United States under the supervision of the architect.

Design

The building was built to emulate a medieval castle with its rusticate base of Table Mountain sandstone and upper face brick load-bearing walls. The South facing façade was the most important one and designed to face towards the recently completed railway line. The railway was the most important means of transport of the time. This attention is unlike today when the building would have been orientated away from the railway line towards the North.
