Insurgente Brewery, also known as Cerveceria Insurgente, is a 6,500 square foot brewering facility, tasting room, kitchen and beer garden located in the Zona Rio district of Tijuana, Baja California. The project has been executed into two project phases, one for the outer shell construction and completion of the brewing facilities, and a second phase for the completion of the small-scale kitchen, tasting room and beer roof garden, which will be active once the project opens to the public.
The concept of the project was driven by the process of making beer becoming the main focus and showcase. From all levels and areas, the visitor can experience and be aware of the making of beer.
At the first level, the main tasting room has the best view of the brewhouse and fermenting tanks. While sitting at the bar, one can see the fermenting tanks from the reflection of mirrors against the back wall. At the main entrance, stainless steel glycol tubes transport cold beer from the cold room directly to the beer taps. At the mezzanine level, seating is placed along the guardrail and visitors can actively see the making and drinking of beer below them. At the roof garden level, skylights project up to become drinking tables, and visitors can view down below into the brewing facilities through the skylight opening.
Phase one construction was completed in late 2014 and Phase two is slated to begin in 2015.
