About Clausen Farm:

Located in upstate New York in the village of Sharon Springs, the historic Clausen Farm is in the process of restoration. The 47-acre summer estate was once owned by Henry Clausen Jr., a New York beer titan of the late 1890’s. In its day, H. Clausen & Son Brewery produced more than 90,000 barrels of beer a year, outselling close rival Anheuser Busch. Today, along with bringing back its signature beer through contract brewing collaborations, Clausen Farm has dedicated its efforts to “growing art” and developing innovative cultural and community projects, reaching far beyond the boundaries of the small village of Sharon Springs.
