The Star-Peerless Brewery included a 3-story main building, an ice house, a cooperage, and a blacksmith shop. The cellar consisted of 4 rows of double arches containing 19 vaults with 34 50-barrel fermenting tubs. There were 6 lower cellars with the entire length over 500 feet wide and 13-feet high. Two large ponds furnished water. Prior to refrigeration, all beer needed to be delivered promptly and in 1874 1,200 barrels per month were delivered as far as a team of horses could go in a day. Star-Peerless Brewery, at 1125 Lebanon Avenue, closed in 1954. St. Teresa Church now occupies the site.
