The brewery behind our name

We adopted our name and logo from the Haberle-Congress Brewery in Syracuse, NY. The Haberle-Congress Brewery operated on the corner of Butternut and McBride from the mid-1800's until 1962. The brewing industry was vital to the growth of the city of Syracuse, making it at one time the brewing capitol of the northeast.
