Theater Breweries
« on: October 08, 2013, 12:09:01 PM »
Does anybody know of a production brewery or brew pub that has been setup in an old theater?  If so where?  I’d like to visit a few.

There was a brew and view in Asheville, NC when I visited around 10 years ago. My brother used to live there and we really enjoyed their beer, pizza, and the movie.

Found it ashevillebrewing.com

Yep, Asheville Brewing Co.

Most of these are theaters at brewpubs, but McMenamins in Oregon has several of them.  http://www.mcmenamins.com/Theaters
Perhaps one is actually a brewery in a theater - I have not been to all of them.

I'm pretty sure Bagdhad Theater has always been a theater. I've been to Kennedy School and stayed at Olympia Club in Centralia, Washington. Both were cool.

We love the Kennedy School, having stayed there three times.  We also stayed at St. Francis School in Bend and have visited at least four others.  All very cool.  I just wish the beer was a little more "special."

Flix Brewpub just north of Austin is a theater/brewpub but the brewing is done up front and the theater operates.

If you are trying to renovate an old theater as brewing space it seems like you have a lot of floor leveling and pipe to lay.
