1. History of Brewing in Syracuse. In 1858, English immigrants John and George Greenway established the Greenway Brewery in Syracuse. It brewed English-style ales and quickly became Syracuse’s largest brewery. By 1890, Greenway Brewery, which occupied an entire city block along the Erie Canal, was the largest brewery outside of New York City. It exported beer as far away as Europe, Australia and Asia.

2. The New Years Day Grand Barbecue. On New Years Day 1870, Syracuse Brewer John Greenway, one of the wealthiest brewers in the country, hosted a barbecue for the city in Clinton Square. Greenway, an English immigrant, decided to host a feast for the city’s poor, which included the cooking of thee steers in 9-foot tall, 14-foot wide ovens along with 5,000 loaves of bread over 2,000 pounds of pudding, which arrived by the brewery’s sleighs pulled by 12 horses.
