Steal This Look: Mill Valley Beerworks

September 07, 2010 10:15 AM

There's a lot to like about the interior of Mill Valley Beerworks, starting with the economical design and the use of low-VOC paints and reclaimed timber flooring. Co-owner Tyler Catalana (who studied architecture at Pratt Institute, worked in the office of Carlos Zapata, and lived in Brooklyn for ten years) designed the interior, which he built with his brother and co-owner Justin Catalana and his father, a local contractor. We recently consulted the Catalana team for some sourcing ideas for similar fixtures and fittings.
