Redhook Brewery | Portsmouth, NH

The former Pease Air Force Base is now home to a magnitude of different businesses (quite the model for successfully redeveloping a military base), including the Red Hook Brewery.  I’ve heard that the original design of the Portsmouth, NH location used the same design as the existing location in Seattle, WA in order to save money on engineering/design costs, and so the building is built to sustain severe earthquakes.  Can anyone confirm or deny this fact?

This shot was taken of the brewery from a spot on the tour behind a glass panel.  I decided to help myself to a solo tour since I missed the official Catapult Seacoast event.  Perhaps a Smuttynose or Portmsouth Brewery tour is next?  I’m now accepting invitations!
