The prestigious Master Builder Award recognizes the top projects in the country in design and construction excellence.

“The brewery’s asymmetrical gabled form recalls the massing of familiar agrarian structures; while also providing the clear span and height required for installing the 14’ tall fermenting tanks.” says Winter Design Principal Architect Scott Winter.  “In order to marry this new industrial building with its rural and rustic setting, we mixed reclaimed barn wood and corrugated galvanized siding with more contemporary materials like steel and glass; creating a subtle harmony”
