Genesee Keg Tree is Lit for the Season!

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Thousands of people braved the cold and snow to watch the lighting of the Genesee Keg Tree. Crowds gathered at the Genesee Brew House to see the three-story tree twinkle with more than 30,000 lights while enjoying Christmas music, local food trucks and, of course, Genesee beer.

“Our fans showed up in a big way for this year’s Keg Tree lighting,” said Jaime Polisoto, Genesee brand director. “From our biggest fans to Keg Tree newbies, you could feel the excitement in the crowd. I think every year it gets a little more magical.”

About the Genesee Keg Tree Lighting

This year’s tree consists of 532 empty kegs stacked three stories high with lights programmed to holiday songs and a neon rotating Genesee sign on top. Visitors can see the Keg Tree light up the Genesee Brew House Beer Garden every night through the beginning of January.

“Where else can you get Christmas lights, holiday shopping, a delicious meal and beer all in one place?” Polisoto said. “Bring your family, your friends and soak in this great Genesee tradition all month long!”
