Hammel Brewery & Museum Roof Repair
Over March 23-24, the 60 mph winds in Socorro damaged the roof on the south building of the Hammel Brewery exposing the interior. Winds over the next few days peeled back even more of the old corrugated roofing. The SCHS contracted with Joe Gonzales for the repair. The rafters remain in very good condition, such that only replacing the horizontal wood supports and new corrugated panels was required. Our insurance was not used as the repair was about the same as our deductable. The Hammel Brewery building and SCHS Museum was completely repaired by April 12.
