coal shed history

Nine historic coal sheds, all built between 1898 and 1906, sit prominently on the waterfront of Mare Island; their original use was to protect and load the coal for the Navy’s steamships. Of course steam was quickly replaced by diesel (and eventually nuclear), and the Sheds were likewise converted to provide other ship services: pipeworks, shipwrights, electrical, etc.

We have painstakingly and completely restored and renovated the first of nine coal sheds. This historic waterfront building on Mare Island is home to our state-of-the art 15-barrel brewhouse.
