Willow Rock Brewing Company has partnered with the Onondaga Historical Association (OHA) to re-introduce Congress beer. Congress was one of the most popular local beers in Syracuse history. Congress was initially brewed by Haeberle Brewery from 1857-1962. WR is working recipes now with hopes to release the beer this summer, updated for today’s palate. We’ll keep you posted; until then, learn more about Congress and CNY’s history by visiting the OHA at their museum at 321 Montgomery St. Syracuse or online at cnyhistory.org.
