  • Building still in use as a “regional” brewery at the East 4th Street Extension. Side Note :The 1981 movie "Take This Job and Shove It" was filmed at the brewery, about the take over of a "fictional" Pickett Brewery by big corporation that tries to close it. Essentially this is what had happened later.
