We were there with friends for lunch during the week. My husband had an exceptional Reuben. Our friends had BBQ brisket pizza which they said was excellent. They shared a five sampler beer which was all made on the premises. Everything was delicious.

Indoor and outdoor dining. Wonderful and FUN atmosphere. You order and pay for food, get a number, and find a table. Very interesting and creatively prepared food. They have wide selection of brews, very good cocktails of their own concoction, and some wines.

Empire Farm Brewery opened its doors in 2016. The 40,000 sq. ft. building is situated on 22 acres of virgin farmland. The objective of the Empire Farm Brewery is to expand the existing brewing facility and agricultural component of Empire Brewing Company to a stand-alone manufacturing and agritourism facility in Cazenovia, NY. The 60 BBL brewery has allowed Empire to keg, bottle, and can their craft beer for regional, national and international distribution. The farm has been cultivated for hops, lavender, vegetables, herbs and fruits. A farm apiary, or "E-piary" will generate Empire's very own estate honey. These crops are being used in award winning Empire ales and lagers, as well as in food preparation at both the Cazenovia and Syracuse locations.
