Glens Falls Brewing

Oneonta Company In Expansion Mode

northern eagle beverage copyONEONTA – Northern Eagle Beverages announced a few minutes ago it will be purchasing Glens Falls Brewing Co. shortly.

Located in Queensbury, near Lake George, the brewery was founded in 2014 to help Davidson Brothers Brewing, Glens Falls, expand its brands throughout the Northeast.  Davidson Brothers is not part of the purchase.

Glens Falls Brewing joins Northern Eagle’s Cooperstown Brewing Co., Milford, purchased in April 2014.  As the Milford brewery was undergoing renovations, Cooperstown Brewing’s beers were brewed under contract with Glens Falls, since both used Peter Austin Brewing systems.
