Special Guest Speaker
at the January 8 Meeting

The Draught Board 15 is proud to announce that we have
confirmed a very special guest speaker for our first
meeting of  the new year on Jan. 8  at 4 PM.  

Tiffany Rodgers
Empire Brewing

Empire Brewing Company, est. 1994, is an award-winning
brewer of handcrafted ales and lagers located in the heart of
downtown Syracuse. They pride themselves on using the
finest all-natural ingredients available. In 2016 as their
success continued they expanded by adding the Empire
Farm Brewery which is the largest farm brewery on the
East Coast. Over 22 acres were developed for educational
and beer production purposes including a state of
the art 60 bbl automated brewhouse,

The farm is located in Cazenovia, NY, and grows hops,
lavender, vegetables, herbs, and fruits for use in the brewing
process and to support the needs of Empire’s Syracuse
brewpub. To be licensed under the farm brewery law in
accordance with the NY Department of Agriculture beer
must be made with primarily NYS ingredients.  The current
requirement to meet these provisions are 20% hops and
20% all other ingredients must be grown in state. That

will  increase yearly until in 2024 when 90% hops and 90%
of
all other ingredients need to be grown in state.

Empire has won three consecutive Great American
Beer Fest gold medals in addition to a World Beer Cup

gold.. They also have been selected to be the only
"I Love NY" campaign beer available in China.

This will easily be the best meeting of the year.
Jan. 8, Sunday, 4 PM at the Gaslight

Start off 2017 the right way - enjoy a tasting of Empire's
award winning beers.  This is not to be missed!
