Hopefully we have all acclimatized to the Covid way of life, but back in 2020 many restaurants, pubs and breweries had to pivot their business model to accommodate the new capacity restrictions and to stay afloat financially. And many like Townsite Brewing looked to the outdoors and came up with creative spaces for their clients to enjoy.
Township Brewery installs Redi-Rock outdoor improvements
With the help of River City Mini Excavating and the Hyland Redi-Rock product the creation of this tiered rock wall garden space increased the capacity to 67% or up to 75 patrons. Their hope was to attract more locals to the outdoor space, but the space was so well received from Powell River locals and the news of the trendy new outdoor pub space quickly spread to tourism platforms creating buzz and ultimately a large increase in tourism dollars for the Brewery and Powell River.
The Brewery applied to increase capacity again by 100% to 150 people and when successful will be looking to host live music and outdoor markets at their newly created space, all made possible through the wonderful use and design of the Redi-Rock product.
Aaron Pikkarainen – Assistant GM, Townsite Brewery, stated; “Despite being a bit over budget, the space has already paid for itself from revenues realized in just one summer. Next Summer will be blockbuster for us well worth the investment!” This is spectacular news given the grand opening of the space was July 12, 2021.
