Harmony Hall started off as a sausage factory in 1908, then later in the ‘60s it became Little Mexico, a restaurant the VanDyke family loved back in the day. Thus, Harmony Hall opened in 2015 with an expanded ten-barrel system and five large fermentation tanks. They hit the ground running with 30 beers on tap, including some great lagers to celebrate the German heritage of the building. Much of the original Bavarian architecture and Mexican relief murals were preserved in homage to the past occupants. The whimsical decor was inspired to life by the infamous Jack-of-the-Woods spirit muse—his leafy visage always giving thoughtful and quiet approval to Harmony’s creations.
