Written by Dan Fischer on March 22, 2018
Local beer is about to flow in Batavia for the first time in nearly a century. Owners of the Eli Fish Brewing Company will be joined by state and local officials, business leaders and plenty of thirsty friends when they celebrate the brewery’s official Grand Opening. The celebration is scheduled for Saturday, March 24 at 2 p.m. at the brewery, 109 Main Street, Batavia.
Named in honor of one of Batavia’s early leaders and owned by three native Batavians, Eli Fish Brewing Company is the cornerstone of the $2.8 million redevelopment of the former J.J. Newberry building on Main Street. The building includes the brewery and restaurant incubator on the ground floor, with apartments planned for the second and third floors.
As part of the Grand Opening celebration, Eli Fish Brewing Company will also unveil its first two in-house brewed beers.
