Hofmann, Empire team up for beer-infused sausage

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - Two Central New York companies are teaming up for a new product.

Hofmann is making a new beer-infused sausage with the help of Empire Brewing Company.

Empire’s Amber Ale will be used as a marinade to create and Amber Beer Bratwurst and a Cheddar Cheese Beer Bratwurst.

“We realized the product was absolutely delicious we found the right beer in the East Coast Amber and teaming it up on the Bratwurst side, they are two things that are meant for each other,” said Empire Brewing Company owner David Katleski

“You look at the possibility of coming together to create a market based in Syracuse, manufactured in Syracuse. It's just a match made to be and it opens up the door for other opportunities,” said Hofmann Brands COO William Huley.

The product is expected to hit grocery stores this week.

It’s also available at the Hofmann Sausage Company’s warehouse on Stewart Drive in Cicero.
