The design for Brewer’s Fork was inspired by the incredible personality and amazing patina of the existing Charlestown building. Rather than cover up the old, we fully embraced its irreplaceable character and put it front and center by exposing the CMU and brick walls that had long been forgotten. To complement them, we designed a salvaged wood ceiling highlighted by indirect LEDs to cast a warm, bygone glow onto the dining room below. Simplicity in material palate and execution of design was intentional to allow the emphasis of the experience to be on the food and drink. Combined the two, and you’ve got yourself a modern interpretation of a colonial Charlestown tavern. Hear ye.
