Inscription. This building was constructed to serve as the Standard Brewing Company's state of the art bottling plant from 1904-1920. When the 18th Amendment was ratified, Standard ceased brewing operations. From the 1920's-1940's, this building housed several businesses. The Fladd-Luig Plumbing Supply Company operated out of this building starting in 1950. In 1982, the Genesee Brewing Company purchased it. This building was converted into Genesee's Brew House in 2012.

Regarding The Genesee Brew House Building. The Brew House is brand new this year (2012) and has been a huge success. It is located on the grounds of High Falls Brewing, makers of the Genesee brand of beers, as well as J.W. Dundee craft beers and Honey Brown Lager. The upper deck apparently has a fantastic view of the falls (supposedly better than that offered by the Pont de Rennes Bridge itself).
