The original Fred Koch Brewery was a small, independent brewery in Dunkirk, New York that produced beer and ale from late 1888 until 1985. Production peaked in the early 1950s with over 100,000 barrels brewed annually. When the Dunkirk, New York brewery was closed in 1985, it was located at 15-25 West Courtney Street.
The Genesee Brewing Company currently owns the trademark rights to the name Fred Koch Brewery but it is not producing any products under the Koch's name.
The brewery was not connected to Jim Koch of Samuel Adams (beer) fame.
