AUBURN — The three-story brick building at the corner of Genesee and William streets will go…
Brewer and owner Garrett Shepherd purchased the property, also known as the Goss Building, in early 2017. He subsequently began renovating it into a brewery and taproom with 24 taps. Every tap will have a beer from him or another New York state brewery, he said Tuesday.
The space is significantly bigger than Suite 1 at 31 Loop Road, where The Good Shepherds opened in September 2014. Shepherd said he'll continue using his 2.5-barrel system at the new site for now, but added that he has upgraded to a new glycol (temperature control) system and new 5-barrel tanks.
Shepherd also announced Tuesday that he has obtained a farm brewer's license. The license will require him to use a rising percentage of New York state-grown ingredients, but it will also allow him to serve other state-produced items, operate up to five satellite locations, and more opportunities.
