Hip Hops Brewers focus on sustainable craft brewing
With construction on Shed 3 exterior almost finished, Hip Hops Brewers will soon start their internal fit out with sustainability a focus of their design.
Their next upcycle project is to transform a silky oak slab of timber, which was originally stored in shed 3 prior to its refurbishment, into the brewery’s bathroom basin benchtop.
The piece of silky oak, originating from the owners of The Sheds at Brendale’s development in Griffin, has been sanded, polished up and will transform the bathroom.
The silky oak bench top will join the repurposed Radiata Pine slabs that are set to become the tops of the taproom tables.
The Radiata Pine trees were also milled at the Griffin site in preparation for another Wattle Run development, starting up later in the year.
The community developer Wattle Run, decided to slab the tree trunks with a plan to use the timber in some way rather than destroy them.
The slabs were milled onsite, brought to Shed 3 to dry out and be stored until the perfect project presented itself for them to upcycle the timber.
Hip Hops Brewers industrial chic taproom tables were just the project to bring these slabs back to life.
The upcycling of the silky oak and pine slabs is just another way Hip Hops Brewers are reducing their impact on the environment.
