Twisted Rail Brewing Co. in Canandaigua NY hits pause on outdoor music – Democrat & Chronicle

CANANDAIGUA, NY – For now, the plug is pulled on outdoor amplified music at Twisted Rail Brewing Co., the popular craft beer and food stop on Canandaigua Lake. 

Owner Ian Boni, who is seeking a change in the lease that would allow bands to play amplified music again, has started a petition so that customers can be heard on the matter. As of Friday afternoon, more than 2,300 people are on his side. 

At issue is noise. 

At least two residents at the neighboring Hotel Canandaigua, which has a mix of condominiums for purchase on the top two floors of the five-story building along with hotel rooms, complained to the city about the noise caused by the live music offered at Twisted Rail. 

John Zito, who in April purchased a fourth-floor condo facing Twisted Rail, said during City Council’s finance committee meeting Sept. 5 that the volume of music from Twisted Rail is “unbearable” and affects his family’s quality of life. 

Twisted Rail leases what is called the Muar House from the city, and a clause in the lease allows for live music that meets city ordinances but does not allow amplified music. 

The business has offered live music since moving to this location across the Canandaigua Outlet from the hotel and neighboring the city’s Kershaw and Lakefront parks in 2016. The business added a small outdoor stage earlier this year.
