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, we grow thirteen varieties of hops on our family farm and craft beers in which they shine.
At Griffin Hill, 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. We harness this hop diversity in the production of delicious farm-brewed beer. The styles of beer we produce are as eclectic as our hop varieties.
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.
Griffin Hill's multigenerational family team is combining its talents to create truly local beer. We are thrilled to offer truly local beer for sale in 2015.
