The Garnerville Industrial Arts Brewery opens a new location in Beacon
Industrial Arts Brewing, named one of the fastest growing independent small craft breweries of 2018 by the Brewers Association, a nonprofit trade group representing independent small craft breweries, lives up to its title.
The Garnerville Brewery has just opened a larger 150,000 square foot facility in Beacon with a bar and beer garden.
The official opening took place on August 15.
While the beer is yet to be brewed at the Beacon site – that should happen sometime in 2020 – the new space features all of its industrial art beers, including the just-released anniversary beer WEEK 156.
Beer lovers can look forward to 11 beers on tap and more to come, said brand manager Sofia Barbaresco, including “fun collaborations with other breweries we’ve worked on.”
The brewery is also partnering up with local artists – and this will continue at Beacon – with the work of Ursula Schneider and James Tyler highlighted at the opening. Both artists are based in the Garnerville Arts and Industrial Complex and have worked with industrial arts in the past.
As for decor, expect a “clean, modern take” that will include work by the Beacon artists which, Barbaresco noted in a press release, includes “a unique bar top and custom-made hexagonal tiles.”
There is also a spacious terrace filled with German-made beer garden tables that offer stunning views. “The afternoon light has to be seen to be believed,” Barbaresco wrote.
At the moment, the brewery can accommodate 180. Eventually (ie over the next year) there will be two more bars and an event space.
As with its Rockland space, the new brewery is child friendly and dogs are allowed on the deck. In terms of food, customers can expect Industrial Arts’ signature Italian meat and cheese platters. A food truck program is in the works (so check out their website).
The addition of Industrial Arts brings the number of breweries in Beacon to three. She joined 2 Way Brewing Company and Hudson Valley Brewery. Barbaresco told the Poughkeepsie Journal earlier this year that the competition is an advantage as people already come to the area for its breweries.
Beacon was, in fact, the place where Industrial Arts founder Jeff O’Neil, a Cold Spring resident, first considered opening before opting for Rockland County. Today, it is its largest property, which will eventually be able to produce more than 50,000 barrels per year.
The focus at Beacon, said Barbaresco, will remain on Industrial Arts’ commodities, which primarily means American beers and lagers, while the Garnerville site will work on more experimental beers.
Barbaresco also said the brewery will purchase new fermentation vessels at the Garnerville site and explore more with sisters in 2019.
