New Belgium Brewing Asheville Brewery
Russell + Mills Studios led the site design for the $120 million brewery located on a brown field site on the banks of the French Broad River in Asheville, North Carolina. The project included siting the manufacturing components of the brewery, associated offices and the visitor experience piece located on the southern side of the site. Significant grade changes were solved through terraced retaining walls and bridges that connect the upper and lower areas of the site. The stream allowed for a clean separation between fun and production. The brewery officially opened in August 2016, and is fully functional with many visitors and tours.
