ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — The Daisy Flour Mill has new owners, according to the town of Penfield. The permit says that the building is now owned by Rising Storm Brewing Company, which is based in Avon. The building had been vacant since 2019.
The new name of the business will be Rising Storm Brewing Company at the Mill. The town of Penfield says the brewery got a special permit that will allow for brewing on-site, as well as outdoor seating. The permit also says they will renovate the exterior.
A spokesperson with the town of Penfield said in March earlier this year, “the town board voted to on the approval of a special permit to allow the microbrewery with tap room and outdoor seating at this location.”
