Maplewood Estates
Business of the Month

Maplewood Estates has been chosen as the January Business of the Month by the Fairport-Perinton Chamber of Commerce.  The Maplewood Estates, 55 Ayrault Road in Fairport, opened in 1999.   Residents reside in studio, one and two-bedroom apartments and have access to a large dining area and a private dining room.  The Maplewood community is very family oriented, with larger spaces that can accommodate extended family gatherings.  The staff reinforces this family atmosphere as they interact with residents and other staff members.  The staff also includes a full-time nurse, from Interim Health Care.

Fairport Brewing Debuts New Beer
This week we debuted not only a new beer, but a new style of beer... a Kombucha Pale Ale!  This is a fruit accented pale ale, with notes of peach pit and tropical hops.  With a sessionable ABV of 3.2%, this easy sipper is also low in calories. Kombucha is raw and living, loaded with probiotics and B vitamins, and a perfect match for tropical hops.  Historically, Fairport is known as the Crown Jewel of the Erie Canal!  A bit more for you history buffs... Ezra A. Edgett began a corn canning business 1851 which later expanded to pack cherries, peas, plums, PEACHES, quinces, apples, and succotash. He made his own cans and sold thousands of baking powder cans locally. The factory building, at 1000 Turk Hill Road, is now occupied by the Fairport Brewing Company... tying peaches, beer, and FBC into the Crown Jewel once again.
