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.

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.
