Project Overview


The Service Brewery project comprised of the rehabilitation of an existing warehouse building in Savannah, Georgia. The building had been vacant and dilapidated before being purchased and converted to what is now a popular brewery tourist destination. Kevin Ryan purchased the warehouse property with the intent to house the brewery company he founded, Service Brewery.

The scope of the work included both interior and exterior improvements to the historic industrial building which posed several obstacles since the building required structural upgrades but changes also had to be approved by the Historic Savannah Foundation. Before renovations could start on the on the 1900’s warehouse, demolition of the second floor of the warehouse was completed and the wood planks were salvaged for placement on the entry facade. The demolition of the second floor made room for two shipping containers that house equipment for the bar area. MEP upgrades had to be carefully coordinated and planned to facilitate the owners’ brewhouse tanks, holding tanks, fermentor tank and canning line. The final product was an industrial warehouse with a touch of contemporary.
