Senate Agriculture Committee Chair Senator Patty Ritchie recently had the opportunity to tour the Anheuser-Busch Brewery in Baldwinsville.
Since 2011, Anheuser-Busch has invested a total of $75 million into its Baldwinsville facility. Its commitment to Upstate New York has allowed the brewery to employ nearly 450 people, many of whom live in the district Senator Ritchie represents.
The 1.5 million square foot facility has been in operation for more than 30 years. It produces nearly 70 different beverages. In March, Anheuser-Busch announced it was investing $10 million into the Baldwinsville facility to expand into non-alcoholic drinks and install a new multi-packer, which will allow local products to stay local.
