Project Reveal: Akasha Brewing Company
A SIPPING SPACE FOR AKASHA BEWING COMPANY
We’ve spent the last week fitting out a ‘sipping and social space’ for the great people at Akasha Brewing Company.
Located in Five Dock, the brewery contained a large open area which was in desperate need of a sipping space, a spot within the brewery walls for locals to lounge about and enjoy a few of their craft ales.
The brief was relatively straight forward; comfortable and functional seating options, a colour and timber palette which matched their primary branding colours, and some interesting and interchangeable signage options to showcase the revolving roster of available beers.
Also, two giant triangle eyes in the sky… (more on that later).
Spotted gum bench seating for the perimeter of the space was assembled at the Timbermill workshop and installed onsite. An added touch was the invisible timber grain joins in the seating, continuing throughout each section and giving the illusion of one long piece of timber.
Signage options were constructed on moveable plywood structures, with large pegboard style hangers that can be easily replaced and switched out.
Sitting high above the brewery we installed two ‘all-seeing hops eyes’, the focal-piece of the brewery and part of their recent re-branding effort.
The all-seeing hops eye was a fun one to put together in the workshop, and with plenty of hands (and eyes) on site during install, we nailed the exact level and placement within the brewery, a kind of cherry on the cake final moment before we tucked in to a few deserved Akasha Tropical Fruit Storm Hazy IPA (our pick of the bunch).
At Timbermill, Timber is our everything… but great beer’s a pretty close second or third.
