The Genesee Brew House Opens its Doors!

Rochester, NY

The Genesee Brewery held a ribbon cutting ceremony on Aug. 31 to unveil The Genesee Brew House and announce details of its grand opening. The public grand opening celebration was held on Sept. 8 and featured a free concert, tours of the pilot brewery, beer tastings for individuals who are 21 years of age or older, food and more.

“The Genesee Brew House commemorates Genesee brewery employees and our loyal fans,” said Rich Lozyniak, CEO of North American Breweries, Genesee’s parent company. “It captures Genesee’s rich history while paying tribute to brewing in Rochester, New York.”

“For over 130 years, The Genesee Brewery has been a vital part of our local economy and has helped put Monroe County on the map. Today’s opening of the Brew House signifies the many great things that are in store for our region. I applaud the public-private partnerships that made this investment possible and wish North American Breweries continued success in revitalizing this historic jewel of our community,” said Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks.

In November of 2011, The Genesee Brewery announced plans to renovate the former packaging center in Rochester’s Northeast neighborhood. The majority of the development project is complete but the outdoor concert and event space will be completed in spring 2013. The company has invested nearly $3.9 million into the project.

“The Genesee Brew House will be a destination for Rochester residents and visitors alike,” said Mayor Thomas S. Richards. “We look forward to the vibrancy that people will bring here as they come to dine, see the exhibits, sample the brew and take in the newly opened vistas of the High Falls and Genesee River gorge.”
