Genesee Country Village & Museum, located in Mumford, in the town of Wheatland, Monroe County, has a historical connection with Rochester’s rich brewing scene. The Museum’s founder, John L. “Jack” Wehle, also served as Chairman of the family business, Genesee Brewing, which his father Louis Wehle purchased in 1932. Today, the Museum’s President & CEO is Becky Wehle, granddaughter of Jack Wehle.
Museum visitors interested in learning more about the history of brewing in the region can visit Grieve’s Brewery on the Museum grounds, a reconstruction of a ca. 1803 Geneva, NY brewery. Genesee Country Village & Museum is the only museum in the United States to showcase a working 19th-century brewery.
