Pabst, An Excavation of Art is a photography book featuring the historic remaining buildings of the Milwaukee Pabst Brewery. The introduction was written by the great grandson of Capt. Pabst, August U. Pabst. The book comes with a 70-minute audio CD featuring interviews with former employees and historians telling fun stories from working at the brewery as well as the history of the place. The cream city buildings stained with coal represent an era most of us have never personally known. The purpose of the book is to go beyond a simple walk through an empty building and introduce you to the physical remains of the Pabst brewery, workers, and craftsmanship that made Milwaukee famous.
Chapters include The Pabst Brewhouse, the Malt House, the Bottling House, the Administrative Buildings, the Captain Frederick Pabst Mansion and the Pabst Farms.
