The Syracuse Suds Factory offers an unique dining and drinking experience.  Established in 1991, the Syracuse Suds Factory brought locally brewed beer back to the City of Syracuse.  The Syracuse Suds Factory's restaurant and micro-brewery have been a favorite to those who truly enjoy great food and spirits.

The Syracuse Suds Factory has a full menu featuring anything from chicken wings to sirloins. We have Prime Rib every Saturday and on Fridays we have our award winning fish fry.


The Syracuse Suds Factory's very own BrickHouse Brew has quickly become legendary in Syracuse. In addition to the Syracuse Suds Factory's own brews, we offer one of the most extensive beer menus in the city as well as serving some of the city's best food.

The Suds Factory is equipped with a large dining and banquet facility with the finest catering services available.   

Our very own brew master, Norm, is here almost every evening and would be very happy to answer any questions concerning our brewing process. On your next visit please let us show you our brewery. Please take an on-line tour of our brewery.


Take a look in the Suds Factory's on-line store which includes such novelties as t-shirts, glasses and BEER.

The Start of the New Year always brings changes- The Syracuse Suds Factory is announcing that As of 1/1/11 Norman Soine has stepped down as our Brewmaster- Norm has been with us since we began back in 1993 and has been with us steadily for 17 years.
