New York State’s Only Dedicated Cask Ale Brewery.

About Us

Who we are

New York State’s Only Dedicated Cask Ale Brewery.

Our brewery began in 2014 on the beautiful, picturesque shores of Seneca Lake in Rock Stream, New York. Our goal was simple: to become the number 1 producer of fine cask conditioned ales in the State of New York and to foster a strong and growing sense of community that exists among the lakes between brewers and beer enthusiasts.

Offering a family friendly, fun setting we encourage you to come visit and soak up the environment whilst enjoying the picturesque views of the lake and some of the finest cask conditioned ales in the State, including our specialty line of British Style “Real Cask Ales.”

Want to talk shop with the people that pull it all together? Ask for the owner – Bradley, or Head Brewer – George who you will find serving, interacting and enjoying some good old fashioned conversation.

Currently the below lineup of Cask Conditioned British Style Real Ales are available in our tasting room. This lineup will continue to grow and expand with some fantastic recipes and beers handcrafted by our Head Brewer – George Pusins. Continue to check back regularly to see what new beers have been added!

Beerocracy Pub

Transport back in time

Opening Summer 2017

The ‘Beerocracy Pub’ will be located at our main brewing location in Rock Stream, NY (just 5 miles south of our main tasting room) and will offer a journey back in time and across the pond to a traditional British Pub.

From the minute you walk in you will be transported back in time to when the British Pub was a national institution and a place where people went to meet, relax and catch up with friends.

The Beerocracy Pub will offer a true experience of a turn of the century British Pub including, socializing, meeting and making new friends, live music and a chance to relax with some great beers, ales, wines and food.

Adding to the authenticity of the turn of the century British Pub, the Beerocracy Pub will offer a cell phone free bar environment  enabling people to truly enjoy the atmosphere and environment. Lock boxes will be available for patrons to  store their mobile devices whilst in the bar area and the concept of buying the whole bar a drink if you are caught with your mobile device will be implemented.

We encourage you to come hangout with friends or family and get back to what a Pub is about and “Get British” with us.
