SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Empire Brewing Company, a Syracuse–based brewer of handcrafted ales and lagers, has plans to expand its operations and add jobs.
The brewery is working to build its Empire Farmstead Brewery in Cazenovia to grow hops and create a bottling facility. The brewery would use the facility to bottle its own beer for the first time in the company’s 20-year history.
The expansion will create at least 50 jobs in Central New York and enable the craft brewery to expand its footprint across the state and the country.
