Seneca Lake Brewing Company.
New York State’s Only Dedicated Cask Ale Brewery.
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!
Bakers Street – Best Bitter
Flavorful, yet refreshing. This traditional English pale ale is made with British pale malt and two varieties of English hops. A sturdy malt backbone balances the hop bitterness that gives this beer its name. English ale yeast lends character and complexity to this incredibly drinkable beer.
Malt: UK Pale Malt, British Crystal // Hops: Fuggle, East Kent Goldings
5% ABV, 31 IBUs, 7SRM
Archies – Dark Mild
The Quintessential British Session Ale!
Known for its low level of hops character and low alcohol content, grainy, toasted malty flavors and undertones of chocolate and coffee ring through in this ale made popular in both London and the Midlands of the United Kingdom.
Malt: UK Pale Malt, 6 Row, Light Crystal 45, Chocolate Malt // Hops: Cascade
3.8% ABV, 18 IBUs, 23 SRM
Steamship – Extra Foreign Stout
A rich, dark ale made to last. Roasted malts add character reminiscent of dark chocolate and coffee. Caramel sweetness balances the dry bitterness from the roasted malts and hops.
Malt: Marris Otter UK Malt, NYS Organic 2 Row, English Crystal Malt, Chocolate Malt, Roasted Barley // Hops: Cascade, UK Fuggle
5.5% ABV, 40 IBUs, 35 SRM
Merri Man – English IPA
A hoppy, strong pale ale made in the British tradition. Floral dry hop aroma is followed by sharp, persistent kettle hop bitterness. Biscuit-like, caramel malt sweetness balances the flavor while adding depth and body.
Malt: UK Pale Malt, NYS Pale Malt, British Crystal // Hops: UK Target, NYS Fuggle, East Kent Goldings
6% ABV, 50IBUs, 7SRM
SLB52 – Golden Ale
A light session ale with a subtle malty sweetness balanced by smooth English hop bitterness. English ale yeast gives this beer a unique fruitiness you won’t find in your average light beer. Supremely quaff-able! (Aunt Pat’s brew – ask us about it!)
Malt: 2 Row, Carapils // Hops: East Kent Goldings
4.5% ABV, 12 IBUs, 3.5 SRM
Our main tasting room is located at 5481 State Route 14, Dundee, NY, 14837, right across the road from Glenora Winery and in the same building as the O’Begley Distillery.

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.
Seneca Lake Brewing Company offers the ability for you to add a new or additional line of ale from our unique British Style Real Ale Portfolio to your current lineup with zero disruption to your existing line of beers and utilizing minimal space in your location. Available in two sizes (Pin – 5.4 Gal, Firkin – 10.8 Gal) our casks can be placed directly on you bar top and poured straight from the cask, or casks can be placed under the bar or in another location and connected to a hand pull Beer Engine which can be used to pull the pint directly in front of the customer.
