Once a century-old packaging center, the Genesee Brew House has transformed the 9,200 square-foot space into a beer destination, featuring interactive exhibits, multimedia content, gift shop, pilot brewery and pub-style restaurant. The Genesee Brew House is the perfect location for special events, business meetings and celebratory group dining. Our fun, lively and casual atmosphere set in an “Industrial-chic” environment is complete with high ceilings, granite counters, exposed beams, wood and metal accents. Hand crafted brews, combined with a number of our dishes, bring a festive feel to your celebration or special event.

Yes, guests have the option of purchasing a beverage package priced per person or have a running tab where beverages are charged based on consumption. We can also provide drink tickets to help you limit the beverage offerings at your event to help you stay within your budget.
