Industrial/Commercial - Smuttynose Brewing Co. | Hampton, NH

Opened in the Spring of 2014, Smuttynose Brewing Company’s new brewery is a showcase facility for high quality brewing, sustainable business practices, and respect for the heritage of its location - objectives that all closely reflect the company’s core values. This 34,000 square foot building designed by Brandon Holben (for McHenry Architecture) is an innovative, contemporary take on a traditional agricultural building, which acknowledges the facility’s location on a historic farm site. The large main industrial clerestory space houses a state-of-the-art brewhouse and several large fermentation tanks with a capacity of up to 65,000 barrels per year. The complex also includes a retail store and viewing galleria that reveal the bottling and packaging area, as well as an upstairs office and conference space for employees. With environmental sensitivity a priority for the client, the facility incorporates many innovative features, and is anticipated to save $2.3 million in energy costs over the life of the building and equipment. The Smuttynose project received LEED Gold certification and was the recipient of the 2015 AIANH Excellence in Architecture People’s Choice Award, and the 2015 AEE-New England Comprehensive Energy Project of the Year Award. (Smuttynose work performed by Brandon Holben at McHenry Architecture)
