Abstract
In the everyday exists water. It is rarely the focus of the architect nor a guiding principle in a building’s planning, design and construction. Too many times it is an afterthought or seen as something that will eternally undermine the physical principles that keep a building standing. This thesis is an attempt to raise water to a position of importance from design to construction, and to establish dialogue between materials and materiality through the design of a brewery.

A place to drink beer and watch the processes of water within the envelope of a brewery where water initiates a conversation between stone, wood, concrete and stainless steel. A place to experience the process of brewing beer from the viewpoint of that very process.
