Michelle & Bill | Owners
We opened this family-run business with a passion and love for beer. Starting out with a beer kit as a gift, turned into buying a kettle and going into a full-grain brewing hobby. Then we thought it was time to share our love with others. The dream was to give people a home brewing experience and recently that dream has become a reality! NYS now allows patrons to come in and use our equipment, supplies, and recipes to brew their own beer for a home-brewed experience. Take the trip to Sheldon/Strykersville and see our great taproom with delicious beers or make an appointment to come to brew your own!
Tap Room & Private Events
Our Tap Room has beers on tap; from a light ale, seasonal brews, and too many styles of IPAs. There will be something for everyone’s taste! We offer flights, pints, and growlers/16oz. cans to go. If you are looking for a 1/2 and 1/6 keg we offer them for sale with request and deposit.
Looking to host your own event at Windy? We have space for small gatherings such as birthday and retirement parties or bridal showers. Reserve your space today by phone, email, or book online!
The Windy Crew
Russ | Brewer
Russ started with us in May of 2019 and comes from Cowlesville, NY. Russ is a full-time teacher and started here as a Tap Handler but became more interested in learning how to brew beer. When our Head Brewer became injured, Russ stepped right in and learned the ropes! He is now our Brewer and works closely with the owners in creating beers and handles the social media here at Windy.
Erika | Tap Room Manager
Erika came to us here as an intern in July 2020 to learn the business side of Windy Brew which turned into being hired for a Saturday position as a Tap Handler. Erika is from Wales, NY,and graduated from Hilbert College in December 2020. As of February 2021, Erika accepted to take on the role of Tap Room Manager! You will find Erika here Wednesday through Sunday.
The Pups | The Greeters
Titan is 9 years old and was rescued from a farm that didn’t want him because he didn’t like to hunt! He was 1 1/2 years old at the time and in very bad shape when our kids picked him up, he was very skittish and VERY afraid of people. When we opened Windy Brew, Titan stayed behind the bar and would occasionally peek out to customers. Our customers so badly wanted to play and pet him but he would run back to his bed and hide!
We received Allie as a Christmas present from our daughter — Titan was 6 at the time and Allie was 8 weeks. With all the attention the new puppy was getting, Titan quickly broke out of his shell looking similar attention!
Our daughter runs a rescue (Nickel City Canine Rescue) and Gracie need a foster immediately until she could find her furever home. Gracie was with us for about 2 weeks and we all just fell in love with her, so we became Foster Failures and adopted her!
We are a pet-friendly brewery and you may not always see OUR pups out, but we will give your pups some love and attention while they are here!
