Architect Andrew Leager has been operating a cabinet shop in downtown Raleigh since 1997. This business is called Special Projects LLC, and is located in the lower floors of the building that houses the Boylan Bridge Brewpub. You can read more about Special Projects on their website at www.wemakestuff.com.
Andrew has been brewing, bottling, and enjoying his own beer for the past ten years. His experience is the basis for taking on the operation of a brewpub.
The Boylan Bridge Brewpub has a bright and open atmosphere conducive to conversation, business, and social interaction. The architectural millwork and cabinetwork built downstairs in the shop has made the Bridge a beautiful, durable facility using fine woods, ceramic tile, and canvas covered tackboard on the walls.
The brewing operation is visible from the bar through glass doors, offering an industrial connection with stainless steel tanks and copper piping throughout.
The most popular feature of the place is the outdoor deck. It offers an expansive view of the downtown Raleigh skyline. A wood post and beam pergola structure enclose the space and provides mottled shade without trapping sound, making conversation easy.
