Fireforge Crafted Beer
Located in downtown Greenville, SC, Fireforge Crafted Beer is a small-batch brewery, tasting room, and garden focused on ever-changing beers inspired by people, places, and culinary palates. The passions of Fireforge Crafted Beer closely align with our motivations of people, places, and purpose; which made for a collaborative and successful partnership.
A well-designed space acts to enhance an experience. One of the beauties of the craft beer scene is that small, individually-owned breweries thrive in unsuspecting or forgotten spaces. Fireforge Crafted Beer is no exception. When Brian and Nicole Cendrowski decided to leave a loyal following in Tampa to pursue their dreams in Greenville, they needed a space that reflected their personalities. An abandoned automotive service station was the perfect canvas for their vision of reclaimed materials in a reclaimed space. Salvaged materials complement the open, wonderfully worn space. The absence of walls, eliminating the separation of the taproom from the brewhouse, gives you the feeling that you are part of the process. Keeping the existing service-bay doors was an important design element as it helps to create a space that is open to a beer garden, and to the energy of its downtown surroundings. The design becomes an integral thread in the fabric of its purpose, reflecting not just the quality of the beer, but the style and values of the owners.
