Ice Cold Beer Here!

Onondaga Historical Association

It's often been uttered that "the past should stay in the past". We're are set to disagree with that statement this week on The 315. The Onondaga Historical Association is planning to launch a new version of the once classic Congress Beer. This week Joe Lee and Kevin Kloss are joined by one of the men behind the return, Bob Searing. They discuss the history of Congress Beer, the history of brewing in Syracuse, and the flavor profile of Congress Beer.

Mayor Ben Walsh put his mark on history this morning by signing his name in Syracuse’s Mayoral Autograph Book in the Onondaga Historical Association Museum. The signature marks the 52nd to be added since Syracuse’s first mayor, Harvey Baldwin, added his autograph in 1848.

Walsh’s name also sits alongside his grandfather’s, William Walsh, who served as the 48th mayor of Syracuse from 1962 to 1969.
