Saint Paul, MN
Bang Brewing Company was opened in 2013 by a husband and wife team who established the first 100% organic brewery in the Midwest. With a strong focus on sustainability and the environmental impact of their product, it only made sense the brewery itself reflected these qualities. The “prefab” grain bin saved on build costs and provided a high volume to exterior surface area ratio for energy and material conservation. With a palette of silver and salvaged wood, the brewery features a custom made insulated glass skylight, spray urethane insulation (R-28), in-floor heat beneath the high-strength, polished concrete floors. A pavilion was added in 2017.
