Hammer & Ale:

Since 2013, Hammer & Ale has offered a carefully curated selection of local & regional beers a warm, friendly, atmosphere. With an emphasis on guest service, it was only a matter of time before a food menu was introduced.

Though concise, the food menu was designed to complement H&A's beverage selection and counter-service setup. While not exactly a full-service restaurant – food was certainly not an afterthought. Intended to be shareable and light, but substantive; H&A now offers something for everyone.

Scope of Work:

Contracted during rebranding/repositioning (formerly The Growler) to develop and implement a profitable foodservice operation intended to complement - and increase beverage revenues. 

The project included the addition of a smokeless/greaseless kitchen.

  • Developed foodservice concepts.
  • Developed initial foodservice menus.
  • Produced all plans and construction drawings                                           (Layout, Renderings, Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing).
  • Provided all foodservice equipment specifications.
  • Managed foodservice equipment bidding process.
  • Managed construction.
  • Consulted re branding and marketing.
  • Trained staff to prepare and execute new menu.
  • Ongoing relationship as operations consultant.
