The North Beach Malt House is a historical landmark building located on the north side of North Beach and near Fisherman’s Wharf. The building was first built as a malting factory and brewery and operated as such for around 40 years. However, in 1906, a San Francisco earthquake nearly destroyed the building. At the time, The Malt House was owned by George W. Bauer, of Bauer & Schweitzer, who later rebuilt the building using concrete and steel girders. Bauer & Schweitzer continued to supply malt to Bay Area breweries (including Anchor Brewing Company) into the 1960s. Still today, you can see the two-story grain silos as part of the courtyard in the center of the complex.
Years later in 2001, North Beach Malthouse opened its doors as a residential condo building. Each of the 88 units ranges from 900 to 1,600 square feet in both single-level and loft styles.
