New purpose for an Abandoned Applesauce Factory
Woodfour Brewing Company had long envisioned creating a gathering place where people could pair carefully-crafted beers with food, an experience typically reserved for fine wines. When the Barlow, an abandoned applesauce factory in Sebastopol, CA, began looking for tenants who both created and sold fresh and local products on the premises, Woodfour knew they had found their perfect fit.
A large dimensional icon greets diners as they approach the entrance, its grand stature well balanced by the understated color.
The monogram, a play on the name Woodfour, is symmetrical, allowing it to be right reading whether you are coming or going.
Woodfour is completely self-powered, with solar panels on the roof generating all of the electricity for both the restaurant and brewery. The barrel room tucked away in the back of the restaurant is the perfect place for private dining and tastings of seasonal beers, brewed in small batches by co-owner Seth Wood.
“Our identity is the essence of thoughtful craft. The consideration you have put on our bottle, we will soon put into it!”
