Griffin Hill Farm Brewery is a hop farm and brewery-in-development located in the Town of Onondaga, NY, just a few miles south of Syracuse. Started in 2013, they grow thirteen varieties of hops on their family farm and craft beers in which they shine.
At Griffin Hill, the farm is their brewing landscape, providing both ingredients and inspiration. With a nod towards the history of hop growing in Central New York, they grow the highest quality hops using organic practices. From the hop yard… Ultra, Rakau, Columbus, Centennial, Liberty, Magnum, Perle, East Kent Golding, Fuggle, Cascade, Willamette, Chinook, and Newport. These new world and old world varieties provide them with an incredible array of aroma and flavor for brewing delicious farm-brewed beer.
Hops are not the only home-grown ingredient that helps Griffin Hill arrive at inspired farm-brewed beer. Their brewing landscape provides them with a little something sweet as well. Their woods are full of maple trees. In winter, while their hops are dormant, they collect sap from their maple trees. Griffin Hill’s Sap Series features beer brewed with maple sap in lieu of water.
