The Dystopian State Brewing Co. occupies a historical building located on Saint Helens Avenue and South Baker Street.  


This 1928 Moorish-style building was designed by a Tacoma architect Silas E. Nelsen for Wagner Motors. It served as an automobile dealership for many years.


Elaborate detailing around windows on the first and second floors distinquish its style.
