Award Criteria

The other 16' of space is used as a kiosk to sell merchandise, beer, and coffee. A large lit marquee sign sits on top of the container which gives it a fun and vintage appeal.

  2. Technical Innovation & Sustainability

    A large pass through window was cut out of this container and it was painted bright blue. The cargo doors were removed and a wall was built with a door to access the 8' of storage space. Electricity was added and upon delivery, the counter, wall treatment, shelving, lighting and flooring were added.

  3. Cost Effectiveness

    By utilizing a shipping container they Modern Times Brewery was able to cut down on the cost of building a permanent kiosk within the brewery tasting room. This allows the brewery to transport the kiosk to other spaces for future events.
