The Genesee Brew House is celebrating its completion of a new outdoor event space and patio area with several events over the next couple of months.
If you were here a year ago, you would think you were in a different part of the city.
"We're Rochester's hometown brewery," said Dean Jones, brewmaster.
Car enthusiasts from across Western New York pulled up to the recently renovated Genesee Brew House for its first car show.
"It's a 1940 Plymouth. I guess I've been a car nut forever, before I was even old enough to have a license I had a few different cars," said Nelson Thorpe of Bloomfield.
People had a chance to check out the pub and 30 barrel brewhouse that's perched over the falls.
"A lot of people have grown up and gone away and are no rediscovering us all over again which is great," said Jones.
Jones says Saturday's Beers and Gears event is exactly the type of landmark status they had in mind. It's just one of the many shows planned, to bring crowds pouring into the Upper Falls neighborhood, including an OctoberFest in the Fall.
"Everyone is always complaining when OctoberFest or Twelve Horse stops, it is seasonal, but if you had it all year long it wouldn't be as special as it is," said Jones.
The new parking lot isn't the only new addition, the brew house also opened a beer garden featuring different types of hops.
The renovation was stalled last year after the city's preservation board declared it an historic landmark. But Genesee's brewmaster says the pub made a nearly 200-year-old name new again.
"We're still here making fabulous beer like we always have been," said Jones.
