New Brewery and Tap Room in the Mad River Valley
Wilcox & Barton, Inc. navigated a complex regulatory framework to
successfully permit a 7,000-sf taproom and 7,000-sf brewery in an
environmentally challenging site with wetlands on three sides. We utilized
creative site design to remain within the existing development footprint, meet
the brewery’s operational needs, and provide stormwater solutions to obtain an
Individual Stormwater Permit.
To support a high number of projected visitors, a full traffic study was completed and received significant scrutiny by the Act 250 District Commission. Up-front planning and discussions with regulators made the permitting process smooth.
