Innovation.  Creativity.  Originality.  These traits make craft brewers and distillers unique – and that’s the same vision we engage when designing craft beer and distillery facilities. In working with clients we go beyond architecture, immersing ourselves in their craft, their brand, and their vision for the future. From small tap room remodel to multi-million dollar expansion, each project is a chance to tell our client’s story, one space at a time.

Our experience in the brewery and distillery industry allows us to navigate the complex fire and safety codes for these projects.  Our team designs to conform to the applicable codes and provides innovative solutions to create a safe environment that is attractive and efficient.

Distillery | Brewery Design Resources:

Your brand is the feeling people get when they think about your product, your company, and your people. Read more about how your design can support and enhance your product brand here.

Featured Projects:

Dancing Goat Distillery: this award winning facility was designed with a contemporary barn style in mind.  The space includes a two-story retaill space with glass overhead doors to allow open air during events.  The design made special use of reclaimed barn wood for the tasting bar and hand-foraged iron for bar stools.  Read more as featured in Metal Architecture magazine here.

State Line Distillery: a facility transformed from a former nickel plating factory, we wanted to keep the original character of the old industrial building, yet incorporate modern trends.  Existing brick and metal panel facade were salvage where possible, combined with interior wood finishes in the tasting room walls and furniture designed by local artist Flags Over Wisconsin.  The adaptive reuse of barn wood earned this project “Most Innovative Green Solution” at the 2018 In Business Commercial Design Awards, details here.

Rockhound Brewing Co.: design in 2014, a modern yet rustic aesthetic was achieved using reclaimed materials throughout.  The bar was placed in the center of the dining area to emphasize the brewing aspect of the restaurant and separate the tasting and dining sections.

Death’s Door Distillery: completed in 2013, this state of the art facility is the largest craft distillery in Wisconsin.  A glass penthouse was built to allow diffused natural light into the center of the building, highlighting the copper towers as the centerpiece to the facility.

Capital Brewery: an interior addition for our neighbor included renovating the existing grain room of the brewery and converting it into additional hospitality space.  The expanded hospitality space was intended to allow for more group functions, while leaving functional space for the tasting room.

Union Corners Brewery: a brewery and restaurant located on Madison’s east side, with a distinct industrial feel.  The design of the space was inspired by this notion of a “craftsman collective”.
