About WeBe Brewing
WeBe Brewing Company is Farm and Micro Brewery, located in Geneva, NY. WeBe opened on March 31, 2018, making it the 14th brewery located in Ontario County. WeBe prides itself on producing small, quality batches of beer. We work with a local farmer to recycle all our spent grains, so nothing is gone to waste. Although we are a dually licensed brewery, we still source all of our ingredients as locally as possible. Currently all our beers contain a minimum of 20% NYS ingredients.
WeBe Brewing Company features a 10 Barrel Brewhouse, (6) 20 Barrel fermenters, and (2) 20 Barrel Brite Tanks.
Prior to being our taproom, the space was a car garage. While demolishing the interior to open up the space, Dan and Colleen found all of the beams and supports, which they brought back to life after being buried behind walls and ceilings. We have 12 taps in our taproom, and also offer local wines and craft soda.
Colleen & Dan Lieberg - Colleen and Dan began their journey in the craft beer industry about 10 years ago, homebrewing in their kitchen while attending SUNY Brockport. What began as a fun hobby quickly turned into a passion and they soon found themselves brewing batch after batch, and taking request from their friends and family for new types of beers. After college, Colleen and Dan moved to Buffalo, but after 9 years they decided it was time to move back to the Finger Lakes and turn their passion into a Business.
