An abandoned brewery on Route 92 in Exeter. Originally the building was occupied by the Forest Castle Brewery in 1873. Later Forest Castle became H.R. Hughes & Co. Brewery, and eventually the Hughes & Glennon Brewery around 1887. I'm unsure of how long the building was used as a brewery. The cinder block additions, which I didn't examine too closely, look like they were added in the 1960's. The building clearly has been vacant for some time, having lost it's upper floor(s) over the years, only a corner of the original building remains. I didn't stay in here too long, the ceiling is brick, and part of it has collapsed.
