Group Aims to Save Brewer's Outlet Mural

A group on Facebook is looking to save the mural created by Dave Naydock

It was announced in October that the Brewer's Outlet is scheduled to close and that the building is scheduled to be torn down to build a new CVS.

While it wouldn't matter that a building would be torn down, the Brewer's Outlet has something special about it, a mural painted by Dave Naydock.

Naydock passed away at the age of 52 in January of 2013 and has painted over 180 murals within Schuylkill County and the surrounding areas.  His first known work was at the Inn of Orwigsburg in 1983.  He also painted the mural that welcomes you into the Dunkin Donuts on Route 61 in Pottsville and also the mural on the wall along Mauch Chunk Street by the Schuylkill Medical Center South.

The mural on the Brewer's Outlet was painted in the early 1990's.
