Something Old, Something New…

On the outside, a classic small town style. But enter 7 W Main Street to visit the newest premier Craft Brewing destination in the Finger Lakes!

Mission

Located at the busy intersection of Routes 5&20 and Route 96- in historic downtown, the brewery will connect with the Waterloo Eats food hall, coming to 3,5 & 9 W. Main.

These exciting concepts will bring fresh experiences to the town, as well as the bustling tourism sector of the Finger Lakes region.

Lets give the birthplace of Memorial Day a vibrant, walkable downtown it deserves…

Lemons into Lemonade

New York State’s premier craft brewing destination is the Finger Lakes, so we’ve been keen on bringing a brewery to Waterloo for some time now. During the remediation of the Waterloo Eats buildings, 7 W. Main Street had some issues with it’s floors (to put it lightly)

In our Mico Beer Brewery concept, the 2-3 tanks and brewing equipment are located in an open cellar. Customers get the opportunity to get a top-down view of the action, with mezzanine seating located on what would have been the front of the 3rd floor.
