You don't say what scale you are in, but since you posed the same question on the Atlas N Scale Forum, I will repeat that JAKS Industries sells the Period Miniatures Berghoff Brewing Co. kit in N scale. Hops, etc., are now transported in covered hoppers but were once transported in boxcars.

OK, so maybe some HO enthusiasts have a thirsty populace as well. Walthers makes a dandy brewery, but one of the 2 people working on my layout with me says it is too big. Any ideas for HO? Kibri makes one...CMR has one for $165.00 (ouch!), Cambell makes one that looks similar to the N Period Minatures one, Heljan makes one that looks somewhat similar to the Walthers one. Any other suggestions?
Many grains were once transported in boxcars by putting a piece of plywood or such across the door opening. I saw a photo, I forget where. Well, yeah, hops are not a grain, per se, but heck, you know what I mean. Ever smell fresh hops? Very fragrant, like a bitter mint, kinda hard to explain.
