With 20+ years of craft brewing success and a loyal customer base, Yards needed a larger facility to expand their popular taproom and increase production. B&F oversaw the conversion of a former clothing warehouse in Northern Liberties into an 80,000-square-foot modern beer production facility that includes a tasting room, restaurant, commercial kitchen, event space, and Yards’ corporate headquarters.
Yards had two primary goals—they wanted to open their new taproom as quickly as possible and minimize disruption to production. We fast-tracked construction to get the taproom open in 7 months, navigating safety and health department issues to obtain the permits required to operate a restaurant surrounded by an active construction site. We also coordinated brewery renovation activities with the purchase and installation of $10 million in high-performance European brewing equipment. Their beautiful new facility is a hit with customers and won the General Building Contractors Association (GBCA) 2018 award for Best Adaptive Reuse Project.
