The Salt Reservation had been created by a treaty with the Native Americans. It extended one mile around Onondaga Lake. In 1798, the Village of Salina was chartered. It was located in what is now the first ward of the City of Syracuse, and continued sixteen blocks. Each block was divided into four house lots, selling according to law, for no less than forty dollars.

An 1845 census of New York State showed 102 breweries; an 1879 survey showed 365, of which 124 were in New York City, 31 in Buffalo, 20 in Albany, 15 in Rochester, 7 in Syracuse and 5 in Utica.
Many New York breweries chose to stay open and make cereal beverages, also known as "near beer." The temptation, of course, was to skip the last step, which is boiling off the alcohol, and make deliveries after dusk.
