As a locally owned and operated business, we are very committed to supporting our local economy and environment. Today more than ever, supporting local business is a critical means of survival in a challenging economic situation. We partner with neighboring businesses that share the common goal of responsible growth and profitability. We use local suppliers as often as possible and are active members of the non-profit Capital District Local First organization.

We donate a portion of the sales of our Tomhannock Pilsner to the Rensselaer Land Trust whose mission is to protect watersheds in Rensse...More [+]

Brown’s Brewing Company has taken a significant step to maintain a supply of hops by planting over 800 rhizomes in Hoosick Falls, New York. We also use locally grown hops from area farmers as often as possible in part to support the resurgent hop production industry that is budding once again in central New York. The use of locally grown and picked hops is a natural extension of Brown’s dedication to helping the local economy. In addition, Brown’s customers reap the greates...More [+]
