9th and York Street

The Dick Brothers Quincy Brewery, was founded in 1857 by Matthew, John and Jacob Dick.

These three brothers founded one of the largest breweries in the United States, and in the early part of the 20th century, Dick Bros brewery was once larger than Anheuser-Busch in St. Louis, Missouri.

When the Dick brothers built their original brewery, it had an annual capacity of about 1,500 barrels of lager beer; within the next 15 years, it would produce about 70,000 barrels.

Prohibition and finally the effects of WWII caused the brewery to be auctioned off under bankruptcy in 1951.

In 2011, the building was purchased and given new life as a fine art gallery and event space. The gallery specializes in large scale art pieces and is a magnificent backdrop for openings and special events.
