A one-time brewery-turned-flour mill in Halethorpe is being recycled once again for use by a plumbing and building supply distributor, the latest in a series of redevelopment projects slated to bring about 600 new jobs to the traditionally industrial area of southwest Baltimore County. The former Stroh Brewery Co., for years one of the best-known landmarks along the Baltimore Beltway with its hulking tower of stainless steel tanks and later home to Washington Quality Foods, will house three divisions of Wolseley North America.

The Stroh Brewery Co. said yesterday that it will retain W. B. Doner & Co. of Baltimore to do the advertising campaigns for brands that previously were part of G. Heileman Brewing Co., which Stroh acquired.For Heileman, Doner handled the Champale, Colt 45, Lone Star, Old Style, EX, Henry Weinhard's, Mickey's, Special Export and Rainier accounts."Based on Doner's excellent creative work with these brands when they were part of the G. Heileman portfolio, it was a natural choice to retain them," said Joe Martino, Stroh's senior executive for marketing.

The Stroh Brewery Co. announced yesterday that it has completed its acquisition of the hobbling G. Heileman Brewing Co. in an estimated $290 million merger that will give the combined company control over about 10 percent of the U.S. beer market.The deal, announced in February, is expected to reinforce Stroh's position as the nation's No. 4 beer maker in a flat industry, giving the Detroit-based company a broader portfolio of national and regional brand-name beers, and what it hopes is an opportunity to cut costs and expand its distribution network and international sales.

The former Stroh Brewery Co. building, a forlorn-looking structure that has sat empty for five years near the Baltimore Beltway in Halethorpe, is being recycled. Within months, the Colt 45 Malt Liquor logo that once adorned the 1960s-era building will be replaced by the profile of George Washington -- the symbol of Washington Quality Foods, maker of Raga Muffin mixes, Indian Head white and yellow cornmeal and Washington self-rising flour. The building's new owners are the latest of several businesses to invest in the county's Southwestern enterprise zone and take advantage of tax incentives to revitalize the once-struggling Arbutus and Halethorpe communities.

One of the most visible and well-known landmarks along the Baltimore Beltway, the hulking, former Stroh Brewery Co. tower, will be demolished during the next few months in an $8 million project to make way for a vast warehouse and office building complex that could bring about 200 jobs to a Baltimore County enterprise zone. The property's new owner, First Industrial Realty Trust, bought the 400,000-square- foot plant in Halethorpe in late December for $13.9 million. The building was owned by Washington Quality Foods, which is still using part of the plant for manufacturing.

He specialized in acoustics and seismology at what was then an all-female college and tried to interest students in physics through curricular innovations such as installing a seismograph, said Frederic O. Musser, a retired special assistant to the Goucher president.

When Tom Stroh Jr. was hired as a fifth-grade teacher at Bryant Woods Elementary School in the early 1990s, he and his wife began looking right away for homes to buy in Howard County. They scoured newspaper ads and real estate magazines, and solicited advice from friends living in and around Columbia. Eventually, the Strohs settled on a beautiful four-bedroom, two-bath home for $140,000 - in Frederick. It's a tale too often told among Howard County teachers: Faculty members are fairly well-paid, compared with others in the state, but they still don't make enough to live and work in the region's most affluent county.
