Assembly Brewing grew from Steelhead Architecture’s clients desire to provide their own neighborhood with a local pub. The location on SE Foster Road was in between a couple of the activity hubs but had great visibility. As a corner lot on an angled street there were some built in challenges to the site.

The original concrete building was from the 1930’s with beautiful old growth fir beams that were sadly covered up. Over the years two disparate additions resulted in a visual jumble both inside and out.

The solution by Steelhead Architecture was to fully open the corner to the public, embrace the site’s acute angle and unify the buildings.

New storefront and roll up doors lead to the main pub space. Ample outdoor seating is contained within the ‘corral’ which provides separation to the parking area.

Steelhead Architecture added the long orange frame – some open, some with a roof – to unify the building forms and create the visual focal point at the front corner, almost a ships prow feel.

On the interior we cleaned up all of the dropped ceilings and wall cladding to expose the beautiful old growth beams and create a more industrial feel with the exposed concrete walls with steel seismic supports. As a native to Detroit, our clients branding and inspiration is the auto industry assembly lines. To this end he commissioned local artists to paint a mural inspired by the famous Diego Rivera frescoes depicting auto workers in Detroit. Assembly’s murals of course depict a beer assembly line with the owners inserted in strategic locations.

The large commercial kitchen sits behind the pub space and the menu is Detroit style pizza which has been universally well received. The brewery then sits at the end of the long building with a 10 bbl. capacity and room to grow.
