Boston decades ago hosted many, many breweries, more even than today. Prohibition and the rise of giants such as Anheuser-Busch and MillerCoors put an end to all of them; and the often mammoth buildings that housed them had to find second acts, including as apartments or condos. This was the case with the old American Brewing Co. complex on Heath Street in the Mission Hill-Jamaica Plain borderlands. As you can see through the listing photos for Unit 206, the conversion of the brewery created some pretty airy lofts. This particular number, a 1-BR, 2-BA spread over 793 square feet, recently traded after barely a month on the market. The condo closed for $419,000—its exact asking price. Skoal.
