Old Brewery - a brewery in Kotka, built in 1894 by the architect Alvin Jacobi. The brewery was opened in August 1895 and the Ukko beer produced here quickly became very popular. By 1912, the plant had become the fifth largest of all factories in Finland.

Soon the Vyborg company Havin oy bought out the brewery and production was resumed. Beer from ready-made malt was produced until 1927, when the shares were bought by the Kyminlaakso society, which transferred its soft drinks company to the plant. The plant also houses a carpentry and sausage factories.

In 1952, the brewery was modernized. The brewery was soon resold again, this time to Mallasjuoma oy, which stopped brewing. This led to the fact that a wide variety of small enterprises began to operate in the factory building: from a car repair shop to a laundry.

In 1990, the brewery was bought out by the city authorities of Kotka, but specific plans for the use of the building, which were located in a deplorable state, was not.
