Tour of Guinness Open Gate Brewery

When:  Mar 13, 2019 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (ET)
Associated with  The IES Baltimore Section

Join us for food, drinks, fellowship, and fun as we celebrate the Holiday Season with an Axe-Throwing event at Urban Axes Baltimore!!!

This combined IES/IEEE Baltimore Sections meeting will be a tour of the recently renovated Guinness Open Gate Brewery and Barrel House. The event will feature a catered reception, and attendees will be treated to tours of the lighting and power systems design of this exciting space.

Located in Relay MD, the newly renovated 80,000 SF, 90 million dollar facility is truly a beer lovers’ paradise. MAG-Lighting Design (MLD) was chosen to provide lighting design services for the exciting project. For the exterior façade with harp logo, MLD specified continuous, linear LEDs along with twin narrow floodlights, providing an elegant, warm yet impressive effect. Once inside, the atmosphere continues with meticulously illuminated architectural details, seamlessly integrated into the structural beams, columns and open staircase. The glass block bar in the main tap room is softly backlit, while LED track lighting highlights antique oak aging barrels. The third-floor restaurant and bar are lit by a multi-layer, fully dimmable lighting composition that manages to be intimate and impressive at the same time.
