The site was also home to an older distillery built in the late 18th century as the waterfront was expanding out into the Potomac River to accommodate deeper draught ships.
A report on the site said the brewery was likely part of a multi-building industrial complex on the waterfront, along with an iron foundry and a locamotive works. By 1853, the site was listed as being part of the Portner and Ale Brewery and produced roughly 3,000 barrels of beer every year.
