Following the War of 1812, Johnson sold the brewery. It remained Claggett’s until it was sold in 1868 to the Daniels family and operated as a brewery until 1879.
In the early 1900’s, a casket manufacturer occupied the site. But in 1987, Theo DeGroen, brewmaster, opened the Baltimore Brewing Company, returning the site to its beer-infused history. In 1998, the City of Baltimore developed Brewer’s Park to commemorate the many breweries that were located in this neighborhood
