Project Type: Commercial
In Woodstock, VA – hometown of firm owner Jason Neal – we were contacted to document and provide concept for the conversion of the historic (1920s) denim factory into a contemporary brewhouse and event space.
Particularities of the project include coordinating specialized mechanical equipment unique to the brewing process in a way that conscientiously engages the main gathering space to be both an interesting facet of design, and informative of the brewing process for future patrons. Also included is needed administrative/office space, a variety of storage options for brewing ingredients, finished product, and bottles, a full size commercial kitchen, ample bar top, and a main hall with adjunct VIP gathering space.
The WBH or Woodstock Brewhouse was conceived out of the acquisition of a former television studio in the small town of Woodstock, VA. A group of friends and investors consulted with our firm to fast track a design to get their brewing capacities and event space up and running. Not only did this space require coordination for all essential brewing equipment, and a new commercial kitchen, but also comprehensive investigation and understanding of zoning capacities, fire safety codes, and historic contingencies for the blending use of production and event staging.
