North American Breweries (NAB) will be renovating a 9,200 square foot facility located on the campus the Genesee Brewery. The facility was formerly the packaging center for the Brewery and was built at the turn of the century. The 1st floor will include a working microbrewery with adjacent touring area to show the brewing process as well as a souvenir shop. The second floor will include a restaurant which will seat 80 and there will be an outdoor deck and rooftop ratio which will show an uninhibited view of the High Falls. The total project cost is $2.8 million, with approximately $2 million in renovations to the long vacant building. The new operation will add 12 FTEs to the existing 500 FTEs at the Brewery. NAB is seeking approval of sales tax exemption only.
