MN Couple Turns Grain Silo into Urban Brewery

Midwestern sensibility and a passion for the craft of beer making led former software and advertising executives down to the fields, literally, of the industrial-tinged, rail yard lined, St. Paul district called the Creative Enterprise Zone. It made sense to them to shop local for an architect, and it made sense for the architect to take inspiration from their passion around organic forms, quality materials, and state-of-the-art processes.

Thanks to Kirsten Dirksen for this 20 minute story around Alchemy's design for Bang Brewing in Saint Paul, MN, our hometown!
