Restaurant remodel assists in rebranding of Cambridge brewery
Renovations were recently completed on John Harvard’s Brewery & Ale House in Cambridge, Mass. Shawmut Design and Construction performed the renovation of the 8,100-sf restaurant, owned by Centerplate Inc. The designer, BSR Brand + Environment, restored many of the historic finishes in the remodel, including the 100-year-old floor, bar top, wooden panels, and pub tabletops. Two new conical-bottom beer fermentation tanks were installed for on-site brewing. The spent grain generated by the new tanks will be featured in the restaurant’s new pizza recipe, thus linking the redesign of the facility with a similarly redesigned menu..
