Britesmith Brewing represents the next chapter of this historic site in the Village of Williamsville. Once home to the local blacksmith shop operated by Louis Lorich which opened in 1916, it now builds on that historic craftsmanship by offering craft cocktails & beer created on-site along with artisan pizzas in the hand-laid mosaic wood-fired oven.
This intimate site features two buildings, serving as the brewpub and brewing operations capable of producing up to 10 craft brews at once. Situated between the buildings is a beer garden that features striking views of Ellicott Creek and Island Park.
The building references the rich history of the site with period materials and elements. The exterior features wood clapboard siding reminiscent of the original wood-clad exterior. On the interior, you will find exposed brick and structural elements to create a historic industrial feel. While enjoying the many warm and inviting elements the design has to offer views of the creek that can once again be enjoyed through the expansive windows.
