Hamm's opened its San Francisco brewery in 1954 at 1550 Bryant Street.
Its 20-by-80 foot sign, with a three-dimensional 13-foot beer chalice on top, appeared in the first Dirty Harry film and was a local landmark. In the early 1980s, the beer vats were first squatted and then rented out to punk rock bands.
Miller was later purchased by South African Breweries and the name was changed to SABMiller.
Subsequently, SABMiller formed a joint venture combining their US and Puerto Rican assets with those of Molson Coors to form Miller Coors, the current owner and brewer of the Hamm's Brand. Keller established the Pittsburgh Excelsior Brewery. Keller, a friend of Theodore Hamm, planned for the two of them to travel to California for the "second gold rush." Louise forbade her husband from leaving her alone with three children in the wild frontier town of St. Unbeknownst to his wife, Hamm staked all of his savings and mortgaged his beer garden in Keller for his trip and homestead in California.
Today, the Hamm's brewery is a popular location for urban explorers, graffiti artists, vandals, and thieves.
In 1953, Hamm's purchased its second brewery from the Rainier Brewing Company.
Jacob Schmidt remained with the company until the early 1880s, becoming a close family friend of the Hamms.
Jacob Schmidt left the company after an argument ensued over Louise Hamm's disciplinary actions to Schmidt's daughter, Marie.
Its buildings were shuttered, and subsequently vandalized, demolished or left to decay.
