“With beer this good, Geneva is certainly worth a visit..." - Jason Alstrom, BeerAdvocate Magazine July 2017

In 2008... 

War Horse Brewing Co. (then called Barley Yards) poured it's first pint. The beer was contract brewed in Rochester with a dream to open an on-site brewing facility in the future. In June of 2016, the dream was realized and our state of the art brewing facility was complete. We have grown and changed a great deal throughout the years. What hasn't changed is our our love of great people, great beer, and great stories. 

War Horse Brewing Co. is part of Three Brothers Wineries & Estates. Imagine three unique wineries and a microbrewery all on one estate, overlooking beautiful Seneca Lake and voilà you've got Three Brothers. As a whole, our priority is a superior customer experience and our philosophy unabashedly argues "we've got something for everyone." Try us...we dare you.
