When Live Oak Brewing wanted to step up production and enter the retail market, they hired Structura to help build their new brewing facility. This collaborative design-build project required months of value engineering and design work to assure that the maximum brewing functionality and flexibility. Scheduling challenges including accommodating the needs of the German crew who had a small window to install the massive brewing equipment. In addition to the brewery, the facility features a tap room for 100 guests with a gear store and an adjacent beer garden nestled under the oaks. The building also includes offices, a cold room, canning line, loading dock and plenty of parking.
