that we at Gun Hill Brewing co. are the ones to bring beer making back to the Bronx for the first time since the 1960s, and contribute to the long tradition of brewing in New York State.
By 1810, New York State was home to the largest brewing industry in the country, with well over 400 individual working breweries. Along with brewing, New York was the nation’s biggest hops-growing region, producing the majority of hops in America throughout much of the 19th century.
Today, we get to declare ourselves as part of a new revolution in New York brewing. One that is not happy with the status quo. One that demands more from what they create and consume. And ultimately, one that like it has throughout history, brings pride to New York. With creative brewers working their craft, hop growing returning to the state, and a rich history to draw from; New York is once again staking a claim to it’s place in the brewing industry.
Here at Gun Hill Brewing co., we’re doing our part by bringing you fresh, unfiltered, handcrafted brews. We use only the best, fresh, local ingriedients to create our brews that are not only unique, but have a quality equal to our passion for making it.
We are a local New York brewery, and we are proud of our roots, and our New York brewing brethren.
