Hyde Park Brewery

The Hyde Park Brewery in St. Louis operated from 1878 to 1948, with a twelve-year hiatus during the prohibition era. It was, in fact, one of the few local breweries to reopen upon repeal of the Volstead Act. The beer’s slogan was the modest proclamation “Seldom Equaled, Never Excelled.”

There are three known Hyde Park walls in St. Louis: Marconi at Shaw on The Hill; North City [cannot recall exact location], and Bates Avenue at the I-55 on-ramp.

    This ‘Hyde Park Bottled beer’ wall painting is on the north side of the old ‘Dallas’ home located in the north edge of old Carondelet, at Bates St. and Minnesota Ave/55 north bound on ramp. The first floor of the old ‘Dallas’ home was once a tavern, in later years a confectionery and now days I believe it is living quarters. I grew up on the Minnesota side of that house/tavern and I recall when the 55 freeways was being built through there in the early 60’s

    Please view my previous entry. Verify that I wrote the ‘Hyde Park Bottled Beer” ad was on the west side of the ‘Dallas’ home. I may have stated incorrectly, the north side. (This pertains to the second picture from the right.)

    I still say it is on the East side of the bldg if you are referring to the large wall sign in Hyde Park.

    Richard, you are right about the wall sign in question. It is on the west side of the residence at Bates and I-55 on-ramp. I did not know it was called the Dallas home and was once a tavern. I took that picture maybe 30 years ago.
