Brewery Soundproofing — Make Every Night Out a Great One

Friends out for a night on the town are looking to socialize while they enjoy a few drinks. If your brewery is a popular spot, it will be full of patrons having competing conversations. Add the noise from your production equipment, bar operations and entertainment into the mix, and the noise level builds up quickly.

Your brewery is a more pleasant place to visit when guests can enjoy casual conversations and feel understood when communicating with your servers. You can implement various soundproofing and sound-absorbing techniques at your brewery to make it a more comfortable place to visit.

Types of Noise to Address in a Brewery

When combatting noise inside your brewery, airborne noise is the primary concern. Airborne noise is sound energy that moves through the air in many forms, from your patrons’ voices and your sound system’s music to audio from a television and mechanical noise from brewing equipment or air conditioners.

Airborne noise is troublesome because sound operates like a fluid — it fills its container and moves until it collides with an object with enough force to stop its flow. If the surface it hits is flat and hard, a soundwave will bounce back toward the source, resulting in an echo or reverberation.

Breweries have numerous features that allow airborne noise to fill the space and reverberate within it. Newer interior designs often feature hard, sleek and industrial surfaces, open floor plans and very few materials that are effective at absorbing sound. Sounds bounce off walls, ceilings and floors, making unwanted background noise and muffling voices. With very little to absorb background noise, the loud atmosphere can make it hard for customers to have an enjoyable experience.

Airborne noise can also travel between rooms. Sound from your brewing area can permeate thin walls or through cracks around a door. Similarly, noise outside your brewery can find its way into the building. A brewery soundproofing solution should encompass ways to reduce the effects of noise inside a space while confining unwanted sounds to the areas that create them.
