Two of the most well-regarded restaurateurs in the Finger Lakes will soon try their hand at brewing. Sort of.
Christopher Bates and Isabel Bogadtke, the husband-and-wife team behind Geneva’s FLX Table and Dundee’s FLX Wienery, announced plans this week for FLX Culture House, a nanobrewery at 20 Linden St. in Geneva.
Like the couple’s restaurants, the brewery will be small with a very unique focus. Bates said the 400-square-foot brewery will focus on longer fermentations, sours and wild ales, blending and barrel aging.
And the Culture House won’t be brewing at all. Instead, Bates said they will be fermenting, blending, and barrel aging. Geneva brewery Lake Drum will actually make FLX Culture House’s wort, which will then be transported to the Linden Street nanobrewery.
