Last week marked the first few days of renovations at 284 Broadway, and we're really excited at what's been accomplished already. We were basically handed a concrete and brick box that has no business being a brewery (but the location! we just couldn't say no...), so we have a bit of an uphill battle to turn it into our dream space. But, with the help of our fantastic architect/GC and some mighty power tools, the progress is already well underway.
The first month is dedicated to demo (interior walls, insulation, electric, digging trench drains, etc.), and then we'll turn to rebuilding, placing equipment, and piping everything to begin brewing. Luckily, the building is a beautiful ~10,000 sqft and has no lingering environmental issues from the car garage that previously occupied it, so, even though we're starting without too much help on the utility front, we do have the foundation in place for a fantastic space.
I'm doing my best to document the progress so that we can have some stellar before and after shots, and also keep all you thirsty folks informed as we chip away and get closer and closer to opening.
So without further ado...here are some pictures to recap our first week!
More next week!
