G5 Brewing Company is a legacy project for a family of five in their hometown of Beloit, WI; they partnered with CTA for the design of a brewing facility with an attached restaurant and bar. Pulling from their time spent on family vacations, the vibe will be Midwest industrial meets backwoods. Largely influencing the design were ideas dreamed up during a CTA-wide design competition, pulling from the winning submission as well as several other entries. With three children spread across the country, the competition allowed the clients’ entire family to leave their imprint on the project.
The facility will feature a commercial kitchen as well as full brewing operation. Guest amenities include a casual dining room, bar area, beer garden, and several special gathering spaces. Structural honesty is at the core of a classic industrial design become modern. CTA’s services include architecture, interior design, and mechanical, structural, plumbing, and fire protection engineering. Construction is tentatively slated to begin in late 2017.
