We tend to attract off-beat clients, this comes with the territory when one serves the hospitality world and this project proved no exception as the owner’s Jeep and Maria had a deep sense of un-ironic kitsch. Working together We created their new brewing headquarters in Ridgewood Queens where the working motto was “Wabi-Sabi ” a Japanese expression roughly meaning nothing can be perfect so embrace the imperfections. Their shiny hygienic brewing equipment plays well against stained plywood. An original “Twin Peaks” (the t.v show) signage the string lights and Hoola girl mimosa glasses & of course their beer line. They briefly and produced a special limited edition run of featuring In House Group which is first,and likely a last for us.
