WHBC’s brewing operations area is approx. 34’ deep and 26’ wide. We have (4) 15BBL and (1) 30BBL fermenters with the planned expansion to include an additional (2) 15BBL and (2) 30BBL fermenters. Our brew house is an elevated platform with our hot liquor tank, boil kettle, and mash tun – working capacity of each being 15BBL. Directly atop the mash tun is our grain case, that can hold 1500 liters of grain. Along the back wall, behind the brew house, is our boiler and power subpanel providing power to the brewing area. Stairs to the 2nd mezzanine area are past the fermentation tanks containing our (6) brite tanks, located directly above the taproom bar. From these tanks are 2 draft lines leading (1) below to the taproom bar and (1) above to the rooftop bar. Also located on this platform is our grain mill and grain storage.
Our main taproom bar is located directly under our brite tanks, what better way to enjoy a beer while sitting under 15 tons of it!! Our bar can easily accommodate 16 guests, has built in USB / power ports, coat hooks, and heated concrete counter-top sitting atop a custom cherry bar with black walnut spline joints. The taproom seating area consists of 10 tables and can seat 40 patrons. Next to our accordion doors, the taproom overlooks our outside patio.
Overlooking our tap room, the Mezzanine gives our guest a birds eye view of our entire taproom. With its extended visual reach and intermediate floor between our tap and rooftop, it creates an inviting social space.
Our rooftop bar is a year round, fully enclosed rooftop bar. In the summertime our balcony is open and our max capacity is 95 patrons. Our rooftop bar has all of the same beers on draft found at our main taproom bar, but with the open air feeling of a true rooftop bar. During the winter, or times of inclement weather, we can drop our tent panels and with our heater (if needed) provide ample seating for 60 patrons.
