Warped Wing Brewing Restaurant & Taproom
Exposed Interior & Exterior Steel with Recessed Truck Dock
Warped Wing Brewery, an established craft brewer, expanded their barrel-aging beer operations with a new multipurpose building consisting of two structures; a larger structure with a peaked roof for barrel aging and distribution operations, and a taproom with a single slope roof that abuts at one peaked end.
The truck dock is recessed approximately 40' into the building, requiring additional coordination with foundations, slab work and interior and exterior elevations. The facility highlights the barrels in large-lit, glazed openings in the over 4,000 sf conditioned storage area. Kegs are also stored in the facility in the interior 4,000 sf cold box.
The taproom structure is oﬀset to corral the Bier Garten on one side and create the hidden back dock area on the opposite side. The two structures join over the bar creating a recessed open ceiling, taller than any other in the taproom. The use of an American Buildings structure allowed clear spans and clear heights for the Warped Wing operations while still enabling designers to create an inviting atmosphere for guests.
