PINE ISLAND, NY — On Thursday, November 7, 2019 Clemson Bros. Brewery and staff from LAN Associates celebrated the groundbreaking of a new mixed-use building that will house the new Clemson Bros. Brewery taproom and restaurant. The new space is located at 641 County Rte. 1 in Pine Island, and construction is expected to be completed in time for the local attraction to open by summer of 2020.
“The architectural design concept was influenced by the owner’s original establishment to create a turn of the century brick factory with an industrial vibe,” said LAN Associates project manager James Diana, when asked about the design. “Once open, I imagine the brewery will quickly become a local attraction and popular destination that brings in crowds from afar.”
Exterior elements that capture the client’s branding of their original industrial factory in Middletown, NY were incorporated into the design of the building. A brick masonry base will anchor the ground floor of the building to the gently sloped site, while the vertical tower will provide a strong sense of entry to welcome pedestrians and create an iconic focal point.
