Tree House Brewing is a young and wildly successful brewery in central Massachusetts, founded by three friends: Nate, Damien, and Dean. Critically acclaimed and much in demand for their fruity, cloudy IPAs, wild fermented beers, and barrel-aged stouts, six of their styles have ranked in the Top 25 on Beer Advocate – including #1, Good Morning, an Imperial Stout. Having started in a barn in historic Brimfield, they moved to a family-owned farm in nearby Monson in 2014, built a brand-new 10,000 sf brewery, and almost immediately began to outgrow it. And the lines of fans did not stop coming…

Austin Design had already begun working with the partners on their next step, an equally-sized warehouse and cold storage building, when the three friends decided to re-think their trajectory and go for the prize. Seventy acres with excellent access was located in Charlton, MA, and we began the task of designing a brewery to accommodate a bright future and a retail visitor’s center to host the throngs of beer enthusiasts. Industrially efficient where it needs to be, and quintessential Tree House on the public side, this will be a popular and rewarding destination for a long time.
