Griffin Hill is a hop farm and brewery located in the Town of Onondaga, NY, just a few miles south of Syracuse. A proud NYS Farm Brewery, Griffin Hill grows all the hops featured in our beers.
Our farm is our brewing landscape, providing both ingredients and inspiration. With a nod towards the history of hop growing in Central New York, we 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 us 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. Our brewing landscape provides us with a little something sweet as well. Our woods are full of maple trees. In winter, while our hops are dormant, we collect sap from our maple trees. Griffin Hill's Sap Series features beer brewed with maple sap in lieu of water.
Truly local beer reflecting the fields and forests of New York.
