Empire Farmhouse Tap Pulls Out All the Hops


Empire Brewing Company is proud to present a new wave of creative brewing, being brought to you exclusively on draft at our Syracuse Brewpub and Cazenovia Farm Brewery.

The Empire Farmhouse tap is a symbol of innovation and experimentation.  It speaks to our brewer’s creativity and abilities, while giving our patrons the first taste into what is to come from Empire.  We will be here to see what you like and use your pallet and expertise to guide us. The Farmhouse tap will be the front line for new styles before they are considered for bottling and distribution.

Interested in Empire Brew’s you can’t find anywhere else?

Here’s our current lineup:

Worst Day IPA: 6.0% ABV

Our first Oops on our new 60BBL production brewery proved favorable by many Empire patrons, proof that good things can come from your worst days. This medium bodies IPA is jam packed with Mosaic hops and malt sweetness, and an aromatic hop nose from 50lbs of Citra that was dry-hopped during fermentation. Get the full story here.

 Particle City: 8.0% ABV

A New England Style double IPA brewed with 20% flaked oats and a generous amount of pale malt. Hopped with Citra and Mosaic hops at a rate of 5 lbs. per barrel, this hazy, fragrant ale focuses on late whirlpool additions and a three stage dry hop.

New England IPAs are beers that are purposely hazy or cloudy, which can give these brews a smooth, creamy mouthfeel, with little to no hop bitterness at the end utilizing hops that impart a tropical, juicy sweetness.

Session IPA: 5.0% ABV

This is our first session IPA brewed with a big flavor while maintaining a lower ABV.  Even with the use of bittering hops this style finishes as a crisp, easy drinking IPA.

A session beer speaks to the ABV of the liquid, ranging from 3-5% alcohol by volume, with the ability to put back a few pints in a session and still remain coherent. A session IPA combines the hoppiness of an IPA with the lower alcohol content of a session beer.

If you’re feeling thirsty for one of these IPAs, remember they are on draft only at Empire Brewing Company. Visit us at our main page for hours of operation and what’s on tap! Follow us @empirebrew for the latest on our Farmhouse tap.
