Hamm's opened its San Francisco brewery in 1954 at 1550 Bryant Street.
Its 20-by-80 foot sign, with a three-dimensional 13-foot beer chalice on
top, appeared in the first Dirty Harry film and was a local landmark.  The brewery closed in 1972. In the early 1980s, the beer vats were first squatted and then rented out to punk rock
bands.  Known as "The Vats", the brewery was a center of San Francisco
punk rock culture with about 200 bands using individual vats as music
studios. The building was renovated in the mid 1980s and converted into
offices and showroom space.
