Inspired by the industrial architecture of the Great Lakes region, this newly-constructed restaurant and brewery is the cornerstone for a mixed-use development adjacent to an NFL stadium and public park. The design expresses the purity and craft of the products that are made within the facility. The simple palette of materials (steel, brick, glass) was chosen to highlight the detail of the building’s design, workmanship and construction. Like the quality grains, hops and water used in the brewing process, these fundamental building materials were the ingredients used to shape the experience throughout. From the exterior Corten steel rainscreen cladding to the interior detailing of elements, steel was used in various ways to express both strength and artistry. This new home for a company that started more than twenty years ago has allowed them to grow, improve their quality, and increase their capacity.
