Smylie Brothers Brewing Company

Evanston, IL

Smylie Brothers Brewing Company, a craft brewpub and smokehouse in Evanston IL, was inspired by our client’s lifetime of family backyard barbeques and passion for craft beer.

The renovation, addition and conversion of an existing 12,000 sq ft bowstring truss building includes an outdoor patio, a through wall fireplace, solar thermal hot water system, water efficient fixtures, energy efficient lighting, and extensive material reuse in the finish details.

An existing drop ceiling was found to conceal a beautiful bowstring truss roof structure which, once exposed, transformed the space revealing dramatic views from the newly created mezzanine dining area.
