About Us:

EMPIRE BREWING COMPANY, est. 1994, is an award-winning brewer of handcrafted ales and lagers. We aspire to provide customers with the finest all-natural ingredients available by utilizing fresh locally sourced products from over sixty Central New York farmers. In 2007, Empire modified its business model to focus on sustainability. We define our business philosophy with the phrases "Eat Where You Liveâ„¢" and "We Grow Beerâ„¢" and attempt to embody the practice "Be Excellent" in all facets of our business.

The success gained after test marketing our beers in high profile establishments located throughout New York State led Empire to expand brewing operations to Brooklyn, NY, by forming a contract-brewing alliance with Greenpoint Beer Works. GPBW is producing four styles of Empire's beer in kegs for distribution within New York State.

Empire Farmstead Brewery is slated to open in the Spring of 2016 and is poised to be the first Farm Brewery in New York State of its kind. The site will be developed for educational and beer production purposes. The property will also grow hops, lavender, vegetables, herbs, and fruits for use in the brewing process and to support the needs of Empire's brewpub, located in Syracuse, NY.
