Gonzo's BiggDogg Brewing

New Restaurant + Brewery

Kalamazoo, Michigan // 10,750 sq. ft.

Client Challenge

Having home-brewed for decades, Gonzo’s BiggDogg Brewing Owners were ready to transition their hobby into a local business. An existing building was identified (formerly a Mazda dealership) which required cost-effective renovations while creating a space that provided for a unique restaurant and brewery experience.

TowerPinkster Solution

TowerPinkster worked with Gonzo’s BiggDogg Brewing to convert the former car showroom and mechanics shop into a new 10,750 SF restaurant and brewery. The space provides for a unique atmosphere as a means to shape the future of Gonzo’s. Designers maximized the use of its existing and expansive glass windows which allows passerbys a glimpse of the activity and energy taking place inside the building. The restaurant and bar portion consists of a variety of seating configurations with a large bar accommodating more than 20 people.

The brewery houses a new 15-barrel system, four fermentation tanks, eight serving tanks, materials storage, and was designed in such a way to house a future bottling system.
