About Us:   

  Finger Lakes Beer Company, LLC was established in the fall of 2009 by partners, Mark Goodwin and Wayne Peworchik. Avid home-brewers for many years continuing with their brewing education through the World Brewing Academy,  Siebel Institute of Technology.
    We selected our Brewery location nestled in the heart of the beautiful Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York for its close proximity to Keuka Lake and the availability for lake water for brewing. We purchased a building which offered a spacious workable layout, ample parking and room for future expansion. We began with building renovations, moved to equipment installation's then on to Federal and State licensing  and finial to opening our doors on November 11th, 2010 for tastings, tours and growler fills.
     Our Brew Room features a matched Ripley 7 Barrel Stainless Steel Brewing system. The Brew House includes a Boil Kettle, Mash Tun and Hot Liquor Tank. The Brew Room also features 3 double wall digital temperature controlled fermentation tanks, grain mill, filter, and other assorted brewing equipment. Adjacent to the brew room is a walk-in cooler containing 8 - 7 Barrel Stainless Steel Serving Tanks and assorted keg filling and dispensing equipment.
     The entrance way of the Brewery and Tasting room offer large windows for great views of the Brew Room  as well as a large comfortable area for you and your friends to relax and visit while enjoying your favorite brews offered fresh daily. We offer pints of beer, flight of tastings and growler fills of fine crafted ales and our signature root-beer all brewed on premises with the freshest ingredient's that can be found. We offer free guided tours on non-brewing days of the brew room floor explaining the brewing process.
     We fill any clean growler in good condition so feel free to bring yours along. Don't own a growler yet, no worries, we stock 1 and 2 liter Logo growler's in several styles. We also carry 22 oz bottles in Aviator Wheat, Newton's Pale Ale, 11/11 IPA, Copperline Ale, Steamboat Stout, Hammonds-Porter Vanilla Porter and Watermelon Wheat.
