Here's a picture from the Grain Belt brewery, where apparently the date 1891 hold some sort of significance. Maybe that's when they built it, but I'm clearly too busy to google something like that. The brewery is cool because it was built in a time where the people building it didn't say "let's build a functional building, one that brews beer and doesn't care if it's an eyesore." No, these men and women (Men.) were just drunk enough to think "Let's build not just a brewery, but a magnificent monument to beer and those who drink it." As the descendant of those beer-swilling builders, I'm glad they made the choice they did.
