Nice to meet you

We’re Hardware—a sustainable gastropub & brewery serving delicious food and over 350 whiskeys

SustainAbility

At Hardware & BBGB, we’re looking to change the way people think about eating local.

We’re striving to keep our carbon footprint to a minimum through growing our own produce and by using reclaimed building materials for design elements.

There are four ways that we make our restaurant a unique local dining experience:


  • 1
    We grow produce year-round in our greenhouse. Our goal is to be fully self-sufficient for lettuce and herbs.
  • 2
    We grow fruits and nuts in our micro orchard and garden throughout our property.
  • 3
    Our 1.5-acre hop farm provides one of the base ingredients for all of our beer. In addition to our BBGB brews, we offer over 350 whiskeys from around the world.
  • 4
    We use a 250-foot well into an underground aquifer to supply all of our water for production in our brewery and irrigation. Also, we reclaim all roof water for irrigation in our green house and patio garden.

About Us

With over 350 whiskeys from around the world, Hardware’s specialty is definitely brown liquor. We have custom Hardware blends, rare finds, and distillers’ private selections.

Enjoy your brown straight up, in a prohibition-era cocktail, or try one of our signature crafted cocktails by our mixologist Brad Schwichtenberg.   Whiskey not your cup of tea?  We offer our B.B.G.B. brews, along with many other local beer options as well as a full list of organic, bio-dynamic and sustainable wines.

Brent Fiedor - Brew Master

Born and raised in the Midwest, Fiedor began brewing beer in 2005. He joined the Gastronomy Group in 2014 and inspired the design of B.B.G.B. Brewery & Hop Farm at Hardware. His passion for using fresh, local ingredients led us to plant our 1.5-acre hop farm, our micro orchard, herb garden patio & greenhouse. His goal is for us to be as sustainable as possible on our 5.6-acre parcel and to bring those fresh flavors into his brewing and his table.

BBGB Brewery & Hop Farm

Our Hop Farm will support our brewery with 80% of hops used in our six mainstay beers. We have 1270 plants and six different species of hops. Our soil was amended with plant only compost and sand, and we will classify as organic by 2018. We also use our spent grain to create dinner rolls & pizza dough for our restaurant group as well as dog treats just because we can! Harvest Party coming August 2017, Details TBD.
