Hamburg Brewing Company looking to create elbow room at site

Hamburg Brewing Company wants to create storage space at its Boston State Road site.

An application is pending before the Town of Hamburg Planning Board for a new 5,000-square-foot building at 6553 Boston State Road. The request for site plan approval is on the agenda for Wednesday’s work session that precedes the planning board’s regular meeting.

“We’re really just planning for the future,” said John Russo Jr., who opened the business almost two years ago with his father, John Sr., and brewer Scott Roche.

“We’re growing at a fairly good pace; we just need to have some room,” Russo said.

The current facility houses the brewing production site; a tap room and patio; and a model train room.
