Arcadia Ales

Arcadia West Brewhouse and Production Facility

Kalamazoo, Michigan // 28,500 sq. ft.

Arcadia Ales expanded operations to include a new Production Facility and Brewhouse in Kalamazoo. The facility is located on a former brownfield site and is nestled along the Kalamazoo River Valley Trail. Mindful site planning allows for access by canoe, kayak, and bike, and future plans will maximize green space with rain gardens, a beer garden, and a canoe launch. Inside is a large area for brewing, bottling, and warehousing. The space is flanked by windows, offering daylighting and views from the outdoors. Engineering systems are also exposed to showcase the brewery production process. The west end of the building contains a bar and eatery with corporate offices overlooking the entire venue. The nature of the handcrafted beer is reflected throughout with organic, durable details like polished concrete, reclaimed timbers, exposed structural elements, and repurposed materials. Retractable garage doors offer natural ventilation, reducing the need for air conditioning while merging indoor and outdoor spaces for patron enjoyment.
