Standing Stone’s Building Remodel Moving to a Head
In the spirit of spring in Ashland, new things are brewing at Standing Stone Brewing Co. Our remodeling work on our building at 95 Oak Street, which began last fall, is still underway with some big progress happening in the last few weeks.
Standing Stone co-owner, Alex Amarotico, and his hard working team are taking out the old and rebuilding the new. We’re creating new storefronts and office spaces where the Book Exchange was (they’re just across the way on Pioneer Street). Since the space is an historic building, we’re ensuring that we maintain the building’s historic integrity while giving it a much-needed upgrade.
Recently, the biggest project has been rebuilding the roof with new beams. Those who were out on Oak St early last week may have seen the crane lifting heavy metal supports and setting them on top of cement towers along the building’s brick walls. The next step will be filling it in with a solid cement roof.
As soon as the roof is finished, the rest of construction is expected to move along quickly. Later this spring, Emz Blendz will return to their storefront, Hanson Howard Gallery will move into the new front space, while Standing Stone’s behind-the-scenes staff will happily move to new offices in the back.
Our microbrewery’s photographer, George Rubaloff, is capturing the progress on film and we’ve included a series of pictures for you to enjoy. There’s lots more posted on our website photo gallery, so check back often for updated albums as construction progress continues.
