Genesee Brewery gets new tanks

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WIVB) — A 225-mile journey on the Erie Canal is coming to an end.

The first set of Genesee Brewery’s new beer tanks shipped into Monroe County Tuesday.

The fermentation tanks glided through the Village of Fairport and under the historic lift bridge on the canal.

The giant tanks are part of the $49 million expansion at the Rochester brewery.

A total of 12 new tanks will go to the brewery.

Each 60-foot fermentation tank holds 2,000 barrels of beer. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
