West Coast Style IPA


AMBER WAVES OF GRAIN
5.0% abv  27 ibu
Pale  ale malt with dark crystal and pale chocolate malts. Cascade and Mt  Hood hops. The earthy Mt Hood hops work very well with the darker malts  in this amber ale. A deep lasting caramel flavor is ever so slightly cut  through with the hop bite.


AMERICAN WARRIOR PALE ALE
6% abv  

American Pale Ale made with 1886  Malt and Cascade hops from our very own Hop Farm in MAnlius, NY


Family Owned and Operated

 Erie Canal Brewing is a Farm Brewery using local ingredients.  Our production brewery is  located in Canastota on James Street with a Taproom located at 135 S.  Peterboro Street in Canastota, next to The Toast.  

We offer our own  brews and the brews from our sister brewery. Seneca Street Brew Pub in Manlius, NY


The  Menikheim Family bought Erie Canal Brewing Company, in the fall of 2015.  The purchase of Erie Canal Brewing Co. represents a small shift in the  Menikheims ambitious plans to establish a vertically integrated,  "field-to-glass" beer operation . 


 Our  beer is made with hops grown from our own farm and our grain from local  craft malt houses. We want to have more control over the process so  that the line of beers that we offer are completely unique. 


For a  craft brewery, it all boils down to supporting the communities that  support your business and offering the most unique and highest quality  beers possible.

#BuyLocal #DrinkLocal

 Erie Canal of Canastota is a local NYS Farm Brewery, owned by the Menikheim family of Manlius who even grow their own hops in Onondaga County. Every dollar spent with a locally owned business like ours stays local. You can get Budweiser anywhere but your customers prefer to buy local when given the option.
