When we started this project we opted to keep the construction as simple as possible. We knew we needed to add another ADA compliant restroom and a few trench drains in the brew plant area but thought that was about it. Before we realized we were digging up almost all the brewery floor, moving the existing restroom, adding in a sink for the pilot system and adding a new floor sink for the bar.
Northspur Brewing Co. is a craft brewery, taproom and kitchen coming to downtown Willits, CA in early 2019 led by Jakob Foley, the owner and head brewer. Although Jakob has long considered Willits the perfect place for a craft microbrewery, it wasn’t until a chance meeting at the inaugural Mendocino County Homebrew Festival in 2017, that things started falling into place. Within a few weeks, he had found an old warehouse location at 101 N Main Street and a lot of local support.
Northspur Brewing Co. will run a 7BBL system and have an annual capacity of 580 BBL’s per year. Northspur’s primary focus is to serve the local community and its guests with sustainable, hand-crafted beer, and food made from local, and where possible organic, ingredients. In catering for our local community, we also hope to become a destination to help draw more people to downtown Willits.
The process of planning, obtaining funding, use permits and numerous state and federal licenses and doing a ground up fit-out for the new brewery is a long one. We still have a lot of work to do but we anticipate opening at the beginning early spring 2019.
