What’s a yurt?

We have not officially picked out the yurt of choice yet, but we thought you would like to see a drawing of one.

We are often asked… “What is a yurt?”

For those that are curious about how the brewery planning is coming along, Guardian Brewing is getting closer to having a property under contract. (More details about our location will be shared as soon as we officially have one!)

Guardian Brewing will provide visitors with a unique brewery experience in the USA. (The camping and brewery concept is still new and rare in the USA.) We will have a 10-barrel brewery, restaurant, recreational games (like disc golf, giant Jenga, Cornhole, Horseshoes, and other lawn games for free!), and tent camping and yurt rentals. Yes, all that fun stuff, all on ONE property!

The Guardian yurts will be available to rent for a night or weekend. They will have bunk beds, a picnic table, electricity, and heated baseboards (for use and comfort year-round!).

“A traditional yurt (from the Turkics)… is a portable, round tent covered with skins or felt and used as a dwelling by nomads in the steppes of Central Asia. The structure comprises an angled assembly or latticework of pieces of wood or bamboo for walls, a door frame, ribs (poles, rafters), and a wheel (crown, compression ring) possibly steam-bent. The roof structure is often self-supporting, but large yurts may have interior posts supporting the crown. The top of the wall of self-supporting yurts is prevented from spreading by means of a tension band which opposes the force of the roof ribs. Modern yurts may be permanently built on a wooden platform; they may use modern materials such as steam-bent wooden framing or metal framing, canvas or tarpaulin, Plexiglas dome, wire rope, or radiant insulation.”

Guardian Brewing will provide a unique experience to brewery visitors. For those wishing to pitch a tent or hammock, we will have tent sites available for rent, as well. When we are closer to opening, we will provide a list of dates and prices for the tent site and yurt rentals. Hope to see you soon!
