A FEW WORDS ABOUT US
Abandon Brewing Company is situated on 25 acres of vineyards and hops over-looking scenic Keuka lake. Original owners Garry and Cathy Sperrick purchased the land in 2010. The property was totally abandoned and in disrepair. With the help of local Mennonite builders, they restored the barn and updated the farm house. In 2013, they hired brewer Jeff Hillebrandt and together, they opened Abandon Brewing Company in the newly restored barn with the goal of creating a one-of-a-kind craft beer experience.
In 2019, Garry and Cathy sold Abandon Brewing Co. to their son-in-law AJ Noto and their daughter Sarah Struzzi-Noto. Today, AJ and Sarah run Abandon Brewing Co. and rent out the accompanying farmhouse. On any given day, you will find one or both of them on the premises, assisting customers and enjoying a brew.
We are a family run business that strives to serve the highest quality beer, ciders and seltzers, while giving you a truly unique experience. We are committed to reducing our impact on the planet through our brewing process. All of our process water is heated using a geothermal system installed underneath our parking lot. This system also aids in cooling our chilling system which helps us maintain proper fermentation temperatures. To protect our watershed, we also reclaim and treat our process waste water. The cleaned and neutralized waste water is then applied to our vineyard to keep the water cycle going.
Whether in the taproom, ordering from our kitchen, or working with our event staff, we want you to feel welcome. We know we have the best customers and we want you to feel that appreciation every time you walk through our doors.
