These days, the craft-brewing industry is experiencing exponential growth across the nation, with an estimated 1,000 new U.S. breweries set to open this year in addition to more than 7,000 currently in operation. Increasingly, homebrewers, hobbyists and entrepreneurs looking to brew their own beer, produce their own wine or distill their own alcohol are choosing to do so in prefabricated steel buildings, which offer affordable, fast and low-maintenance construction options that can meet a wide range of industry needs.
Producing beer, wine or spirits often involves special considerations, and steel buildings are completely customizable so they can accommodate any number of production, climate-control or storage needs. Rugged and reliable, they offer wide clear-spans (up to 200’ wide) that provide ample space for brewing, distilling or related operations and high overhead clearance ideal for storing large brew kettles, wine barrels and similar business assets.
Combining Style With Functionality
While some buyers rely on steel breweries, wineries and distilleries purely for production purposes, others plan to operate taprooms or restaurants out of them, too. Sunward’s pre-engineered steel buildings can easily accommodate both needs, providing safe, damage-resistant places to produce and work while doubling as attractive, stylish spots to kick back with a cold beer or a drink.
Many of the pre-engineered metal buildings Sunward supplies undergo use as:
- Tasting rooms
- Distribution centers
Steel buildings are also economical and easy to adapt and enlarge, should a brewery, winery or business owner develop a need for more seats, more production room or more space to store products. Our knowledgeable team can also help you adhere to any building code requirements currently in place at your intended build site, and we can even set you up with a reliable contractor in your area who can help you raise your new brewery or other commercial building, if need be.
