Brewery Smoke Stack For Sale

On eBay, that is. No kidding, it’s a smoke stack from the "Original Hudepohl brewery" in Cincinnati. Currently this auction has 3 days left and is up to 1.5 million dollars. I wouldn’t hold my breath that the link I provided will be persistent, so here’s some of the text from the auction:

The Hudepohl brewery will be under development and the original smoke stack is up for auction as a one of a kind collector piece. Please be aware that this stack is roughly 170 ft tall.

Hudepohl-Schoenling Brewing Co. was the last of the great Cincinnati breweries. Unlike the dozens of hometown breweries that faltered during Prohibition, Hudepohl, which was founded in 1885, persevered. Schoenling Brewing Co. was created in 1933. The two breweries merged in 1986, and in 1999 the company was sold to Snyder International Brewing Group. The old Schoenling bottling plant was sold to Sam Adams-Boston Beer Co., which now bottles Hudepohl-Schoenling brands.
