Schlitz Mosaic

This building at 1699 Astor is currently home to Johnsen Schmaling Architects. Based on this mosaic on the Brady Street side of the building, I'd suspect this was originally a Schlitz tavern. As I mentioned in an earlier post, many of the taverns in town were once supported by a specific brewery. Schlitz's 1960's formulation has been reintroduced, and is available again in many locations. You can read more about the brand and its history on their website.
