It’s been a busy time at Hoops Brewing. The brewery and beer hall are starting to take shape and we’re still on target to open in the spring.
In November, we finished demolition of the old Timberlodge Steakhouse space in the Suites Hotel building in Canal Park. The vision came to life as we pealed everything back to the massive posts and beams of the historic warehouse space and started construction in earnest with our General Contractor, Johnson Wilson Constructors.
Construction began in December with removal of the brewhouse floor and pouring of a reinforced floor with high-end quartz covering. Interior walls were roughed in and new hardwood floors are currently being installed. Other elements for the brewery are also being selected, such as a field trip to a local woodworking studio to look at handmade table samples.
Our Wisconsin-made Sprinkman brewing equipment is set to ship in the third week of March. We can’t wait.
