THE HOME BREW­ERY

THE CON­CEPT

Fac­ing a huge cost to de­mol­ish a leaky con­crete wa­ter tank, Gabrielle and Fred­er­ick in­stead de­cided to make it a home brew­ery and en­ter­tain­ing area. “It was the brew­ery that in­spired the in­dus­trial-coun­try aes­thetic we used for the whole room,” says Gabrielle.

THE FIT-OUT

The cou­ple bought a keg fridge that fits three 19-litre kegs, so they could have three dif­fer­ent brews on tap. On Gumtree they found a deep 1.8 me­tre-long stain­less steel dou­ble sink, a stain­less steel prep bench and a white fridge/freezer that Gabrielle sprayed to look like stain­less steel. “We did our own plumb­ing, put some taps in and set it up so the waste­water is used on the fruit trees next to the tank,” says Gabrielle.

THE FI­NAL TOUCHES

To com­plete the look, they added shelv­ing for the brew prod­ucts in solid black steel and Fred­er­ick made small crates to hold his long-neck bot­tles.
