Blacksburg craft beer lovers rejoice: Eastern Divide Brewery nearing completion
Bell Electric is proud to be the electrical contractor for this innovative brewery opening spring 2019 in the Blacksburg Industrial Park. Eastern Divide Brewery is a 12,000-square-foot facility boasting a production area with 1,000-gallon brew tanks, a full kitchen and tasting room, and a breezy dining area with room for 200 guests.
Work on the project began almost a year ago and includes custom remote control lighting, control wiring for the brew tanks and exhaust hoods, fire alarm and communications, and equipment installation. Powering the building is an 800-amp load center in addition to a 90-panel solar array on the south-facing roof installed by Baseline Solar.
A brewery is a functional environment and every square foot of space is critical to the final product. We enjoyed the challenge of creating an intentional design that emulates the ultra-modern feel of the facility. Rustic light fixtures and rich wood finishes converge with stainless steel lines to create an inviting, dramatic space.
Brewing begins this week and the brewery will open its doors late this spring. Come see our work, gather with friends and enjoy a delicious locally-made microbrew. We'd love for your next beer to be powered by Bell Electric!
