About HOME/BREWED

On November, 16th 2018, the Heurich House Museum unveiled the first exhibit highlighting the largest and most complete collection Chr. Heurich Brewing Co. objects.

The collection - which ranges from bottles, cans, and kegs to signs, employee photos, and branded everyday objects - is currently on loan from local collector Jack Blush who accumulated it over 40 years. The Heurich House Museum plans to acquire the collection and display it permanently, and has started a fundraising campaign to achieve this goal. This large collection is especially important as much of the Chr. Heurich Brewing Co. history was lost when the archives building, which contained records and marketing materials from its founding onward, was lost in a fire in 1938.

The collection and exhibition has the potential to help DC better understand its local history. The Chr. Heurich Brewing Co. was a homegrown business and household name in the District at a time when all beer was regional and everyone drank their hometown beer brand. At its peak, the brewery was the largest non-governmental employer in the city.

The museum hopes that the exhibit, and the questions it poses, will prompt visitors to share their own stories and objects and participate in the knowledge-building process.
