Stairway to the Stars

While not something most would consider an attraction today, the large outdoor escalator that took guests to the rooftop of the brewery as the start of the tour was often listed as a separate attraction in early maps and brochures.

In 1974, the pool beneath Stairway to the Stars housed sea lions.

It was often billed as one of the largest or longest outdoor escalators in the world, rising 86 feet up the brewery’s facade.



Additional details and images on the Stairway to the Stars will be added in the future.
