Our Story So Far
Kim and Tracy were both in the restaurant business for over 20 years before deciding to open a restaurant of their own.
Kim worked a full time career as a chemical dependency counselor and moonlit at night as a bartender at the former Steamboat Landing. Tracy worked full time in the real estate industry in the appraisal department and moonlit as a waitress at the Canandaigua McGregor’s.
When the steamboat landing was getting ready to close and torn down to build a future hotel, the pair were approached by then owner, Dave Genecco with an idea to open a restaurant in the building that is now Rio Tomatlan. Although that deal didn’t prove to be a good option, the idea had been born. Sometimes ideas take on a life of their own and it was fast taking shape as a reality. The pair continued on their search to find the perfect location for their business idea. They found it when they noticed that the former train station was for sale and approached the owner about leasing the first floor. The owner was receptive and thus a lease was formed!
It was here that the Twisted Rail Brewing Co and The Beehive Brew Pub we’re born.
The Pleasant Street location seems to be perfect breweries to get started in the industry. When Twisted Rail moved onward and upward to a larger location they were followed by Peacemaker Brewing Company who eventually followed in that same exciting path. Today we’re proud to say our neighbor is Square Knott Brewing Company, who recently opened at the pleasant street location and are already making some great beers!
While all this time, the Beehive has remained a truly unique and charming location for its many regulars to gather as well as new patrons to enjoy a delicious meal and fine craft beer.
We value the culture we have created, and hire truly great people who love what they do. We’re committed to supporting nearby small, local businesses from our ingredients to our spirits and beers, The Beehive is known for its ever changing and high quality draft list. We are always seeking out new and unique draft choices to keep our list exciting and fresh.
And always…MAKE IT FUN and KEEP IT REAL.
