Rocks Brewing Company

Hospitality Design and Fit-out - Sydney - 1,000 sqm

Cradle was engaged by the Rocks Brewing Company in Alexandria to create a micro-brewery and associated industrial bar that overlooked the brewery. With their current brewing facility in Brookvale, they were looking to expand their brewing capacity whilst providing an on-site bar and kitchen. The new hospitality design also included a dog-friendly 800m2 beer garden.

The bar layout design of the facility was planned together with the head brewery. Integrating the small-batch brewery's requirements into the base building refurbishment, Cradle considered the intricate layout of brewing equipment, workflow expansion and planning for the open brewery, bar and kitchen areas. As a result, high-quality brewing equipment was sourced from the United States and shipped to Australia.

The design of the bar and kitchen was conceived as a simplistic, basic finish to complement the industrial design of the space. All brewing tanks and equipment were generally stainless steel for sanitising and longevity of the equipment. Keeping in-line with the core industrial design, concrete floors, exposed steel frames and exposed roof construction were a prominent feature of the space. All services were left as finished and exposed.

Using sustainable interior design materials, the bar and kitchen fit-out utilised reclaimed timber and metal cladding, the tables were also constructed of reclaimed pipe work and recycled timber tops.
