The historic rehabilitation of the Hartz Building brought a truly Detroit-style brewery to downtown, the Detroit Beer Company. With the brewing process as its inspiration, KDG designed a space that combines the industrial nature of the city with the high-end finishes of a traditional pub. At the ground floor, the shining stainless steel brewing equipment is the focus of the space, providing patrons seated at the room-length granite bar with an up-close view of how their drinks are brewed. The new open steel stair with custom balustrade leads to a casual dining space and satellite bar on the second floor. The exposed brick wall, historic tin ceiling and the rich finishes contrast with the industrial equipment and exposed ductwork to create a relaxed, casual atmosphere, the perfect place to enjoy a fresh brewed pint in Downtown Detroit.
