The Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA) has just published a new 12-page case study report called Distilleries & Breweries. It features six attractive and efficient facilities in the booming spirits market and makes the case for metal building systems as an ideal home for these businesses.
“There are over 6,300 breweries and nearly 2,000 distilleries in the U.S. right now, and more are on the way,” notes Tony Bouquot, MBMA’s general manager. “Metal building systems are cost-effective, great-looking and versatile, making them an excellent choice to house these businesses and keep up with a growing market.”
The Distilleries & Breweries case study begins by looking at the requirements of distillers and brewers and describing the specific traits of metal buildings that enable them to meet these needs. It then provides interviews with owners and constructors who explain why their metal building was the right choice for the application. Vista Brewing, in Driftwood, TX, uses a metal building that was chosen for its organizational and functional options, but also allows the owners to control energy costs. Stony Creek Brewery in Branford, CT, needed a building that would meet expansion needs while containing both production and tasting areas. The Dancing Goat Distillery, situated in Cambridge, WI, uses a 16,700-square-foot metal building structure that houses production and storage facilities as well as a tasting room. Cape Fear Vineyard & Winery, Cape Fear Distillery, Erie Brewing Company and Sunken City Brewing Company are also included in the report.
In addition to this new report, MBMA’s website (www.mbma.com) has additional case studies on Vehicle Sales & Service facilities and Metal Roofing, as well as an array of other useful brochures and fact sheets about metal buildings and the metal building industry. This information is free to download, and extensive technical manuals and publications are available for purchase at www.mbmamanual.com.Click here to download a PDF of the Distilleries & Breweries case study.
