The Vats (hamm's brewery)


by Ernst Thepunk

No music here anymore, sadly, just startups and office drones. However, this is an important piece of San Francisco history. Back in the early 80s, this building was the abandoned Hamm's beer brewery. A bunch of punk rockers, among them members of MDC and the Dils, squatted in the old brewing tanks. Pour out a 40 for old time's sake.

Also, check out the song about it by my band, The Unmanned Pilots.
