Hop Harvest @ The Farm


It’s all hands on deck as summer comes to an end at Empire Farm Brewery. All summer long we have been growing beautiful Cascade hops in our two-acre hop field out front. These hops aren’t just for aesthetic; this year our brewers gathered 500 lbs of the hops and brought them down to the Bineyard in Cazenovia, NY. Only 24 hours after the Bine Yard processed our hops, they were added to our Hop Harvest Ale.

Our Hop Harvest Ale is an American style Pale Ale made with wet hops. This style ale has a fresh hop flavor and aroma with a balanced hop bitterness. We will proudly be serving the Hop Harvest Ale along with our Reverse Viking Imperial Stout at this years Madison County Hop Fest’s Craft Beer Sampling on September 14th. Tickets are $35 and can be purchased at entrance or at Food for the Hop Fest will be available between 12-2pm, while the beer pouring will take place between 2-5pm.

Keep your eyes out for the Hop Harvest Ale at Empire Farm Brewery! See you there and happy sipping!
