Dundee is a Rochester, New York-based brewing company that produces ales and lagers. It is part of the Genesee Brewing Company,[1][2] owned by North American Breweries which started marketing the brand's first lager in 1994 as J.W. Dundee's Honey Brown. Honey Brown quickly gained a good reputation and won awards, most notably the gold medal at the 2004 World Beer Cup.

The company now produces one year-round craft beer, India Pale Ale, as well as eight craft beers available in seasonal variety packs: English-Style Ale, Kölsch-Style Ale, Pale Ale, Pale Bock, Pilsner, Porter and Stout.

The company also produces four seasonal craft beers: Irish Red Lager (Spring), Summer Shandy (Summer), Oktoberfest (Fall), Nut Brown Ale (Winter).


J.W. Dundee's Honey Brown Original Lager was first produced in 1994. The Company added Amber Lager and Pale ale in 2006 along with some seasonal selections. In 2008, the company re-branded all the "J.W. Dundee's" products as simply "Dundee Ales & Lagers", including Honey Brown.

In early 2010, under North American Breweries ownership, the company separated Honey Brown from the Dundee lineup and returned this product to "The Original Honey Brown Lager." New craft beer brands and seasonal selections were added to the Dundee Ales and Lagers family.
