Space & Design:
Bottleneck Management worked closely with architect Dacre & Youngquist in turning the 7,966 square-foot indoor space and 1,511 square-foot outdoor patio into the brand’s cutting-edge ‘pour house’ design scheme. The inviting interior boasts the brand’s wildly popular copper-inlayed bars and tables, custom-milled dark woodwork, high ceilings, and operable windows opening up to the outdoor patio space, and large chalk board-style sign detailing ongoing beer offerings. In addition to Old Town Pour House’s coined expertise in offering 120 draft handles with 90 local and global beers, guests are invited to enjoy any and all sports games with the expansive audio/visual system to include three 110” video walls. Patrons can choose from a variety of seating, from cozy booths to copper high-tops, or the copper-topped bar that runs the length of the room. With locations in high-traffic pedestrian thoroughfares, the vibrancy on the outside patio pairs magically with the atmosphere offered inside.

The Gaithersburg property is the third installation of the ‘Pour House’ brand profile, and the first location outside of the Chicagoland area. Bottleneck Management has plans to extend the Old Town Pour House experience to additional major markets in the near future.
