About Me

Your "Chosen Spot" for craft beers!

We founded Square Knot Brewing with two goals: To consistently brew exceptional beers and build community ties in the town we grew up in and love. Giving back to the community where we live is nothing new for the Owners of Square Knot Brewing. Paul and Nate have understood the value of being active in the community and contributing positively to the community we call home. They are members of many organizations including veteran organizations and community minded organizations. Square Knot Brewing will strive to contribute 1% of our annual revenues to charitable organizations. Paul and Nate are both native to Canandaigua, Square Knot Brewing is a Veteran Owned Small Business, Independent Craft Brewery in the Chosen Spot of the Finger Lakes. Square Knot Brewing will be you chosen spot for craft beers. Contact ahead of time through our booking form to book private parties and keg orders.


What separates our brew pub from a normal pub? Our onsite microbrewery is the standout feature, producing a range of classic and craft beers straight from the heart of our staff. Beer brings people together; we believe with better beer, people have a better time. We want as many people as possible to share in the fun. There’s a great number of craft breweries worldwide and thankfully more opening almost daily. Even while utilizing only the four main ingredients, these breweries make an astonishingly wide variety of ales and lagers, all with a unique house flavor. Square Knot is no different. Even with the wide variety of styles we brew, our Craft Beers will always taste like Square Knots own. Using sound techniques, the finest ingredients and innovation, we strive to make the best and most memorable beers—Making us the Chosen Spot For Craft Beer.

Our brew pub

We feel that our brew pub is a special place, combining the laid-back social atmosphere of traditional pubs with the creativity and innovation of the craft beer scene. Customers can taste their way through a great selection of craft and classic beers in a trendy atmosphere, or simply pop in for a pint of their favorite brew. Our pub is a great place to hang out, so bring some pals and explore our beer menu!
