What's Brewing?

JOHN RUSSELL BREWING co. is now open!

The owners of U Pick 6 Pubs & Restaurants have decided to start brewing! With our love of craft beer, the art of brewing has now become a part of our U Pick 6 family! The brewery will be located on Upper Peach Street & I-90, adjacent to our original beer store location, which opened in 2009. Our original U Pick 6 Beer Store will become our New Brew Pub & Restaurant with a new wood-fired brick oven & the same menu as our other locations! U Pick 6 Beer Store will expand & transform into John Russell Brewing Company Brew House & Restaurant!

How did John Russell Brewing Company get its name? The owners, John Melody & Russ Stachewicz, have poured their labor and pride into the craft beer community. It only makes sense to pour a beer with their names on it.
