We’ve been hard at work trying to develop an atmosphere at the brewery where people are comfortable and engaged with beer, music, food, and the social scene. Our new addition has helped us accomplish this task, and the build out of the deck this spring will further enhance the experience. There is a lot more to come from the production side and customer experience.
Jim Zimar has joined our team full time and brings a wealth of knowledge from his 30 plus years of experience as a winemaker and vineyard manager in the Finger Lakes.
Jim’s involvement will help expand our beer offerings, packaging capabilities (More news on packaging later!), and will help ease production constraints as we continue to grow. Although he has already had a presence at the brewery, welcome him aboard when you see him.

When our first-year celebration ended, I reflected on the previous year being a Finger Lakes Brewery. A couple things were a given: our customers are great, and I can’t wait to see what the next year will bring. Now, as I reflect on 2016, I have the same feelings. The 2016 winter at the brewery was one of the highlights of the year. Coco’s was our resident food truck for the winter. Collette and her staff braved some cold winter evenings keeping everyone’s belly full! It was exciting to see so many locals out and about in the finger lakes during the winter and everyone having such a fun time. We had many local musicians play some outstanding music in our packed taproom, and they provided some very memorable nights. Aaron Lipp, Owen Eichensehr and Alex Myth, Not From Wisconsin, The Zydeco Trail Ryders, The Ampersand Project, and Jackson Cavalier are some high points.
