The Cooperage

The historic E. & B. Holmes Machinery Company Building Complex in Buffalo, NY, was comprised of three primary sections, which encircled a central courtyard.  Unfortunately through the years portions of the property have suffered great and irreversible damage and needed to be demolished.

Through selective demolition and new construction, the former industrial property has seen an incredible transformation delivering a vibrant mix of uses in an entertainment focused destination. The Cooperage includes Resurgence Brewing Company, a world class rock climbing facility operated by Central Rock Gym, 10 market-rate apartments and Hartman’s Distillery focused in barrel-aged spirits.

Resurgence Brewing Company’s new 25,000 square foot facility at The Cooperage features a 2-story tap room with food, banquet space for parties of all sizes, and beer gardens for guests to enjoy.

Central Rock Gym’s 21,000 square foot facility is a world class indoor rock climbing, fitness and yoga facility. It has over 300 linear feet of bouldering walls for beginners to advanced climbers, and kid specific climbing area.  In addition to the enormous climbing areas with walls up to 45 feet in height, there is a work-out area with state of the art cardio machines.
