Random Row Brewing Company finally has a home! Starting late winter 2016 we will be occupying 608 Preston Avenue, Suite A, a large, open space formerly occupied by Moxie, which recently moved into a larger space at the back of the property. The lease negotiation process took us a lot longer than we thought, but in retrospect that is understandable – we are asking our landlord to let us move tons (literally) of expensive, immovable equipment onto his property, cut trenches into his floor, drill holes in his ceiling, and do any other number of unspeakable things to the building. But we have found an amazing partner in Mark Green, who is developing the King Lumber project of which we are now a part. Mark has been extraordinarily professional to work with and has worked tirelessly to frame every potential point of contention (or negotiation) into a win-win context. As for the property itself? We think it will suit our needs perfectly. It’s part of a larger historical renovation, the centerpiece of which is the King Lumber Building, and if interested in learning more information, see Sean Tubbs’ excellent article in Cville Tomorrow. Features that we were particularly drawn to included ample parking (most of us have children and we don’t like dragging our kids across the street for any reason), high ceilings (lots of expansion opportunity), and central location (while not all of us live downtown anymore, we are always looking for an excuse to get down here).
