Our STORY

Slate Town Brewing Company is a New York State Farm Brewery owned and operated by Brewer Glenn Wetherell and Susan Knapp, both of whom are branching out from Hicks Orchard/ Slyboro Ciderhouse in Granville, New York.

Susan co-owned and operated Hicks Orchard for two decades and was a co-founder of Slyboro Ciderhouse.  Glenn was the head cider maker at Slyboro Ciderhouse for many years as well as running the fresh cider operation, planting trees and all other aspects of farming.  

With a passion for brewing exceptional seasonal, experimental and traditional beer and a love for their upstate rural/ urban village, the duo purchased a 1930's era brick building on Main Street in Granville, NY, breaking ground in the spring of 2017 to put Slate Town Brewing Company on the map! 

Slate Town is dedicated to brewing outstanding beer that pleases a variety of tastes using local seasonal ingredients.  We invite you to come visit our brewery on Main Street and raise a glass with us.
