Stone Brewing Company Brewery and Tap Room


In collaboration with Hourigan Construction, Draper Aden Associates provided the structural design and construction documents for a 200,000 SF brewery with 100,000 SF production facility and 100,000 SF distribution facility. Included within the production facility is approximately 10,000 SF of office/retail space on 2-stories and a 15,000 SF brewing mezzanine specifically designed to accommodate the conical tank openings. The building framing is standard steel construction consisting of steel columns, wide flange steel beam girders, and open web steel bar joists with steel beams at specific locations for support of equipment.


Additional structural design for Stone Brewing included design and details for the installation and bracing of the malt conveyor, pipe bridges for process piping, malt mezzanine, and attachment of the process tanks to the base plates on the brewing mezzanine. Other primary items required by Stone Brewing included the structural engineering design and details for the exterior tank farm which included the concrete foundation and tank supports.
