The HammerSmith Brewery and Alehouse is a privately owned shed in Pennsylvania, located on roughly one acre of land. In addition to the shed is a small cottage equipped with sleeping and eating quarters should you have too many pints of Ale. The property is also located on a trophy trout fly- fishing stream that boarders the property to the East. A fully functioning micro brewery turns out 10 gallon batches of real ale from grain to glass, where there is also a mug club for 24 lucky members. Being a huge fan of British inspired ale and culture has made it an easy choice of decor for this award winning brewer. The shed features hot and cold running water, heating and air conditioning, four refrigerators, two sinks, cable television, Wi-Fi internet, and a classic audiophile quality sound system to keep the party going. In addition to four dispensing taps, the brewery is a state-of-the- art brewing system personally designed and built by hand for piloting endless batches of quality beer. A commercial grade sink and yeast laboratory completes the space as this is one pint sized beer nirvana friends and guests will soon never forget.
I approached this project roughly a year and a half ago, it was filled with old lawnmowers and rusty tools, as soon as I walked into the shed, I saw the endless possibilities, but it was a little more difficult for my wife and a couple of friends to realize what I envisioned. I love the quote, "Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen and thinking what nobody has thought"
This shed was proclaimed by FORBES MAGAZINE as " America's Coolest Homebrewery in 2010 "
