Sol Harris Day Architecture

Wooly Pig Farm Brewery sits on an Appalachian Hill Farm in eastern Ohio on the banks of the Tuscarawas River. Inspired by the brewing tradition of Bavaria, Wooly Pig Farm Brewery goes beyond a craft beer brewery with hops grown on-site and friendly wooly pigs roaming the area. SōL Harris/Day was tasked to convert an existing wood-framed, metal sided pole barn that once housed a tractor and plow into a production space, bar and tap room.

The Ohio beer scene has really been taking off, but it felt like a little bit of a void here with Coshocton being in the middle.

Ely, Wooly Pig Brewery

The Story

For more than 150 years, the farm belonged to the Norman family, who first herded sheep, then ran a dairy, and later raised crops on its gentle slopes, which overlook the Tuscarawas River. The original farmhouse and several slate-roofed outbuildings still stand on the property, and its red barn sits atop a stone foundation inscribed with the date 1899.     

The brewery’s beers are sourced from the same natural spring that nourished the Norman family, their animals, and their crops for generations. Between the brewery and the old farmhouse, 12 varieties of hops climb 20-foot-tall trellises. The tasting room has given new life to rustic planks and hand-hewn beams rescued from a collapsed outbuilding.
