AIA-SWO Intern Tour: Falling Sky Brewing

The next in the ongoing series of AIA-SWO construction project tours features the creation of a new brew pub in Eugene, Falling Sky Brewing. Like the previous tours, the intent is to allow architectural interns who may not otherwise regularly visit building sites to see firsthand a construction project in progress. Here are the details:

What: Falling Sky Brewing

When: Tuesday, December 6th at 11:55 am

Where: 1334 Oak Alley, Eugene

After nearly a decade of providing exceptional service and products for home brewers and winemakers, Valley Vintner & Brewer, 30 E 13th Avenue in downtown Eugene, changed its name to Falling Sky Brewing. With the assistance of Nir Pearlson Architect, Inc. Falling Sky is expanding into a beautiful adjacent space.

Ultimately encompassing over 3000 square feet, the result will transform an old warehouse into a refined setting featuring the old barrel-vaulted ceiling structure, an outdoor beer garden, a full kitchen, and German-made brewery equipment. The stunning copper-clad brewing tanks will be visible behind a wall of reclaimed industrial windows. The cook-line will be open to the service counter, integrating the brewing and cooking processes into the dining experience. Oversized windows and a glazed roll-up door provide direct indoor/outdoor links and access to the south-facing dining patio.

Falling Sky Brewing’s debut is set for next January, so this is a great time to visit the project as it takes shape.

Please RSVP by Tuesday, December 2nd to Julie Romig at or 541-683-8661 extension 3. Space is limited.
