Officials with Empire Farmstand Brewery made the official announcement last week, but say they’re not closing the 42,000 square foot brewery – only reorganizing their business.

Located on Route 13 (Rippleton Road), Empire currently employs about 100 people and generated about $2.71 million in revenue in 2017, followed by $2.85 million last year.

It was built in 2016, with financial help from the state’s Start Up NY, Empire State Development and other programs.

The filing lists $54,343 in unpaid state and federal taxes, with “priority” unsecured creditors including the U.S. Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau ($19,704 owed) and the state Department of Taxation and Finance ($34,639 owed).
