Hyde Brewing and The Suffolk Punch

Renovation, Restaurant/Retail

The Vision

The “Rail Trail” corridor of South End Charlotte has experienced incredible growth. Doerre Construction was proud to contribute to this growth, and be part of the team that could “Create a Grand Openingfor Hyde Brewing and The Suffolk Punch, an exciting new brewery and restaurant located at 2911 Griffith Street. The Doerre team converted a historic bow truss building into a property that now houses a coffee shop, restaurant, brewery, and fermentation lab.

The Project

This multifaceted project included the conversion of a 7,800-square-foot bow truss building in historic South End into the exciting restaurant, brewery, and coffee house space it is now. Original masonry, steel, and timber construction played a large role in creating a unique space for the new brewery, restaurant, and taproom areas. The project was a full interior and exterior renovation, including new electrical, HVAC, plumbing systems, outdoor patio space, landscaping, and cosmetic exterior work.
