K2 Brothers Brewing, a prominent Rochester-based brewery, has purchased the former Freewill Elementary School, located at 4320 Canandaigua Rd, Walworth, as part of their expansion strategy.
The deal, which was agreed upon last year, was officially closed on May 12. Demolition is currently underway as the brewery prepares to execute its five-year plan, transforming the school’s 72,000 square feet space one wing at a time.
The first phase involves converting the main gym into a production space, boosting their brewing capacity to 300 barrels a week, and transforming the cafeteria into a bar and taproom.
The second phase includes the development of a live music space, arcades, conference rooms, and other facilities in the remaining area.
