Since first starting out in their brewpub in Bellingham, Washington, Aslan Brewery has grown for the Seattle and Bellingham lovers of craft beer. Aslan founders Don and Boe Trosset, Pat Haynes, and Jack Lamb approached MARKS to help them expand their cellars to increase their production.
Client: Aslan Brewing Co.
Date: 2014 - Present
Location: Bellingham, Washington
Project: Increase efficiency while increasing production
The challenge Aslan gave to MARKS was a building with an odd shape and a low ceiling. How do you custom build cellar tanks to an existing brewhouse that is not very efficient due to the building dimensions?
MARKS solution was not only to build custom cellar tanks to fit the low ceilings of the building, but to redesign the entire brewhouse. In the end Aslan got a new 30 barrel brewhouse specifically designed to fit the building that doubled the brewing capacity and helped to make their award-winning craft beer faster. With all this new capacity, Aslan not only needed the new custom indoor cellar tanks, but special outdoor tanks to continue expansion.
