The taproom at Boomstick Brewery and Growler shop, is located on the ground level of a 36-room boutique hotel located in Western Newfoundland in the city of Corner Brook. The landmark building is the first of its kind in this vibrant community and a four-season hub for tourists, and residents alike. Formerly a 2-storey bargain retail store, the building now spans 3 storeys with the production facility, Taproom and Growler Shop located on the ground level.
The name Boomstick was named after a term used in the logging industry; large logs used to help transport pulp logs via the water to the paper mill in Corner Brook. These logs were used to fabricate custom communal tables in the Taproom, with back steel frames as supports.
The Après ski concept of the Taproom is nestled in a cozy, warm, tactile surrounding overlooking the 24 hour production facility. The colour palette, texture and patterns selected for the project were inspired by the local “townsite” architecture, former Newfoundland railway, and the logging industry. Acting as the “hearth” of the building, the exterior high gloss green tile wraps inside and is visible from both the Taproom and the adjacent lobby. The rich depth of the green tile houses a 2-sided wood burning fireplace which creates a casual and warm nook for beer drinking after a long day on the slopes. The wall finishes throughout the space were intentionally kept dark with a focus on warm lighting.
