Meier’s Creek Brewing Company acquired the former Empire Farmstead Brewery in Cazenovia in 2019. Together, we transformed the single story tap room into a two story industrial barn where tasters can view the brewmasters at work. A new dramatic corten steel entry canopy welcome visitors to the north entry. Inside, 19 foot high glass now displays the stainless steel brew tanks on one side of the tap room and views of the hills of Cazenovia draw visitors to the other side. The newly added exposed steel serves as an industrial backdrop and an armature for the various light sources.
Beyond the glass, outdoor dining with a new canopy and landscaping make for a perfect atmosphere to enjoy the local beer that Meier’s Creek has on-tap. This was a 25,000 square foot renovation completed in 2020 with Hayner Hoyt Corporation as the general contractor.
