What’s a yurt?

We are often asked… “What is a yurt?”

For those that are curious about how the brewery planning is coming along, Guardian Brewing Company is getting closer to having a brewpub and destination to share with you.

Guardian will provide visitors with one of the most unique brewery experiences in the USA. (The brewery plus lodging concept is still 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 yurt rentals. Yes, all that fun stuff, all on ONE property!

Guardian yurts will be available to rent for a night or weekend. They will have couple beds, a table/counter, electricity, air conditioning for the summer, heat for the winter, and a private bath and shower (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 will provide a unique experience to brewery visitors. When we are closer to opening, we will provide a list of dates and prices for our yurt rentals. Hope to see you soon!
