Quincy, known as Illinois’s “Gem City,” is located on the Mississippi River and has many much-loved, historic buildings in the downtown area. One building being remodeled by Josh and Tieraney Craig to revitalize downtown Quincy, Illinois is Quincy Brewing Company.
The idea for Quincy Brewing Company first came about eight years ago, but due to timing, it hasn’t come into fruition until recently. Josh has always had a passion for brewing and enjoys home brewing as a hobby. When the opportunity arose to make the dream of Quincy Brewing Company a reality, the Craigs were eager to fill a need in Quincy, as not many breweries are nearby – the closest being about a half hour’s drive away.
Located on downtown Quincy’s 6th Street Promenade, the new home of Quincy Brewing Company will reflect the original style of the building and the open community feel of the area. Lots of the building parts are being repurposed, and the original columns on the façade have been revealed in the remodel as well. To mix the original style with modern characteristics, the Craigs chose Amarr aluminum full view doors for Quincy Brewing Company. Four Amarr 3550 doors in black anodize finish with gray tint glass are used throughout the building – with one being used as a counter door that opens to the sidewalk on the Promenade. The doors will be operated by hand and lend to the community feel. “We’re all about that!” says Tieraney, adding that other businesses in the area also use aluminum full view doors to make the Promenade feel unified and “welcoming.”
Quincy Brewing Company “is our contribution to Quincy, to take something old and make it new again, and put love into it,” says Tieraney. Quincy Brewing Company’s official opening is scheduled for October 11, 2019. Visit quincybrewingcompany.com to learn more.
