I love the idea of having a hydroponic hops system. I think hydroponics is a great way to grow, especially in small spaces. I also love the idea of vegetation as ornamentation like the images are showing. Would having barley and hops as well as grapes in my growing spaces be too much? I probably need to look at how hops benefit my bar and how to incorporate brewing into the program.

Pick a hop. Build a randall. Spotlight beers on draft that would be complimented by said hop and randalization. Make it a seasonal offering.

Hmm... You're also going to need to find a way to utilize the ingredients unless the bar is also a brewery.

The hops can be fresh hopped into beers seasonally, but the barley is going to be ornamental unless you're doing some small brewing on site. Even though a lawn of flowing waves of grain would be pretty at the bar.

Spices are an option we haven't talked about.

You could grow cilantro and put the coriander seeds in some of the beers and the leaves in some chip dip, salsa, or guac.

The total square footage of the bar listed in the program description is 2000 sf. Is that enough to include a small brewery on site? I think I can always move square footage from other pieces of the program to the bar but I'm trying to stick with the 2000 listed.

With 2,000 square feet I don't see why we can't have a hop garden, barley field, vineyard, orchard, malt factory, brewery, winery, and some cozy seating areas nestled throughout.

Can't tell if this is sarcastic, or just no idea of exactly how large 2,000 sq ft is. I wouldn't try cramming all of those features into my 10,000 sq ft yard.

Dude, it's 2,000 square feet, that's huge. We can fit all of that and way more. I was assuming that included the parking lot space too.

Yes, I was being wildly sarcastic.

If you knew some of the rocket surgeons I have to deal with, you'd understand my concern

an on site brewery is fine, just use your fermenters as tables, kegs as chairs, and have a stove for both bar food and brew kettles.

Does anybody have like a sample floor plan of a brewery implemented into a bar? I'd like to have some sort of reference while I'm working on the project.
