OUR STORY

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

During its construction, this section of the erie canal 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 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 plotlines, or archetypes. They are:  

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

Our beers are each named in honor of a story that falls within one of these story archetypes. CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT EACH.

We know that after spending some time with us and our beers, you'll have some stories of your own to tell.
