West Station Production Facility

We’ve long outgrown our current space at 135 Salem Avenue. We’ve completed over a year of searching for a new home. Finally – we are excited to announce we will build our production brewery in Downtown Roanoke, a few blocks from our current location. We will be a part of The Lofts at West Station, Phase 2, which begins construction in September 2016. We anticipate to move from our current location at 135 Salem Ave in the late Summer/Early Fall of 2017.

“We’re going to keep doing what we are doing – It’s just going to be bigger”
Bryan Summerson – President, Big Lick Brewing Co. 

“The beer scene in downtown Roanoke needs a little boost, so I think we’re the ones that are going to give it a boost”
Chuck Garst – Vice President, Big Lick Brewing Co.

Floor Plan: Brewing Area: Approx 1635 sq/ft – 10bbl Production Brewhouse / 2bbl Pilot Customer Area: Approx 2100 sq/ft

Historical interior features will be preserved to highlight the existing barrel roof, truss structures, brick walls and concrete floors.


Our 5,700 square foot Beer Garden will be one the largest in the region, featuring hardscape seating, tables, 5 fire pits, and dedicated areas for music, recreation and food trucks. The parking lot on the west side of the brewery will have 36 parking spaces. Street parking is also available as well as next to Beamer’s 25.

Built in 1910, this one-story, barrel roofed warehouse originally served as a trucking depot. In the early 80’s, the original facade was removed for an addition extending the building to Salem Ave. The development plan calls for the addition to be removed and a new facade created for this historic structure.
