Brewery Renovations - Phase 1.1

Deep River Brewing CoPhase 1; Demo, cleaning, painting, oh my!

It has been a long few weeks but we are moving right along! We have quite a bit of work on our hands trying to renovate a 15,000 sq ft space that is over 100 years old and has been vacant for at least 10 years. We know this is 3xs more space than a new brewery would need but we are hoping that in 3 yrs it’s just the right amount. We have no intention of moving out of this building for a very long time!! In the meantime, Paul is already thinking about how to put a hockey rink in there. He is an engineer… I’m sure he will figure it out…. :)


The very first thing we wanted to tackle was the demolition. Who doesn’t love demo? The best part about it is that you can destroy things, get all of your stress out, and discover muscles you never knew you had! But… the worst part about demo is the never ending clean up of nails, sheet rock, 2x4s, nails, plywood, nails, random old things found in the walls and did I say nails? I think we picked up enough nails to build a new warehouse.

As soon as we were finished with demo, we had professional painters come in to clean the ceiling and walls then repaint them. As you can see from some of the pictures, the walls were covered in chipped paint in multiple colors. Plus just about all of the surfaces were covered in thick dust.

We will post more pictures once the painting is completed.

So what's next!?!

Next we have our general contractor's team coming in to put up some new walls and cut our floor drains. We also have plumbing and electrical teams scheduled to rewire and re-plumb our space.

The Workforce Development Center in Clayton offers a course called BIOWORKS whichis a certificate program for adults interested in entering the biomanufacturing industries. When you open I'd like to bring my students to your facility for a tour of a modern biotech facility.
