Haberle Congress Brewing Reintroduces Congress Lager

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Haberle Congress Brewing Co. is proud to reintroduce Congress Lager in cans to Central New York for the first time since 1962. Earlier this month, Congress was canned and back on shelves. Congress Lager was Haberle’s most popular brand from the turn of the 20th century until the Haberle brewery closed in 1962. The current Congress Lager is a revival based on meticulous study and experimentation of the historic Congress.

Here is a short list of establishments currently carrying the authentic Haberle Congress Lager: Syracuse Co-op Market, Bville Craft Beer Center, Branching Out Bottle Shop, Lock 1 Distilling, Jake Hafner’s Restaurant and Tavern, Cortland Beer Depot, Sweeney’s Market, Court Street Beer Depot, Golden Spike Pub, Chubby’s Sports Bar and Grill, and Empire Farm Brewery.
