LOCATED ON THE SHORES OF THE ERIE CANAL AT THE HEART OF THE GREAT EMBANKMENT.

During its construction, the section of the erie canal where we are now located was an architectural marvel. In 1822, work on the “Great Embankment” in Hartwell’s Basin (now Bushnell’s Basin) was completed. The embankment, which is one mile long and 70 feet high, carries the Erie Canal above the Irondequoit Creek Valley. Seven Story Brewing pays tribute to the ingenuity and grit needed to complete one of the most challenging stretches of the Erie Canal - and the heights to which they went to make it happen.

EACH WITH
ITS OWN STORY

EVERY story - be it a movie, book, poem, or tall tale told around the fire - falls within one of seven distinct plot types:  

- Overcoming the Monster
- RAGS TO RICHES
- THE QuEST
- VOYAGE & RETURN
- COMEDY
- TRAGEDY
- REBIRTH

Every one of Our beers is named in honor of a story that falls within one of these archetypes. We believe that like all the great stories after which our beers are named, our beers also have a unique story to tell. We also know that after spending some time with us and our beers, you'll have some stories of your own to tell.
