As a locally owned and operated business, we are very committed to supporting our local economy and environment.

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 [+]
