Pabst Brewery (Building 23)

On-time &safe completion

Fire Protection, HVAC & Plumbing Services for Breweries in the Milwaukee Area

Ahern met its client’s deadline and provided fire protection installation services at a 19th Century Church converted into a micro-brewery and beer hall in Milwaukee, WI. Ahern was able to maintain the historic integrity of the building while adding modern conveniences and life safety systems. Prefabricating the 144 sprinkler heads as well as extensive experience of working in existing facilities sped up the schedule and allowed the grand opening of the Pabst Brewery to take place on time. The project received an award from the City of Milwaukee in 2017 for a Historic Renovation.
