Farm Brewing

Dedicated to handcrafted brew, made fresh…

Otsego County, NY has a history of American hops farming. Red Shed brewery is located in an old milk house in the hills around Cherry Valley with a historic hop house in our view.


Red Shed’s Local Ingredients

As a NY State farm brewery, Red Shed Brewery uses mostly NY state hops and grains in all of our beers. We love buying from our neighbors, and our beers represent the seasons and climate of NY as the weather changes from year to year. As a farm brewer, the requirements are:

> Until the end of 2018, at least 20% of the hops and 20% of all other ingredients must be grown in New York State.

> From January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2023, no less than 60% of the hops and 60% of all other ingredients must be grown in NY State.

> From January 1, 2024, no less than 90% of the hops and 90% of all other ingredients must be grown in NY State.

In 2018, Red Shed will be using 100% NY State hops for the current beer portfolio.
