handcrafted fresh with local hops and grains
Fresh Beer, Fresh Food, Local Ingredients
Red Shed Brewery is an award-winning Cooperstown area brewery that prides itself in making fresh, locally handcrafted beer. With two locations (one in Cooperstown and one in Cherry Valley, NY), we believe that the key to a good brewery is a relaxing atmosphere and a knowledgeable team.
Located between Utica and Albany, Red Shed Brewery uses a majority of New York-grown hops to brew all our craft beers in the Cherry Valley location. The Cooperstown taproom is located near Oneonta, NY, less than half a mile down County Highway 33 from Brewery Ommegang.
If you ask the locals, they will tell you that one of their favorite things to do in Cooperstown is to enjoy a craft beer or two in our beer garden. With plenty of outdoor seating, an inside taproom, and a relaxed atmosphere, Red Shed Brewery is a welcoming local hangout. And we are one of the few breweries with food in the region. In addition to fresh pub favorites, our menu offers vegetarian options made with local ingredients. Dining with kids? Our delicious kid-friendly menu will please any picky eater.
What’s on Tap?
As a NYS farm brewer, our craft beers feature the best of locally grown hops and ingredients, using recipes designed to bring out the best of our region. We brew traditional English and American style ales. On tap, you’ll find a selection of brews, from Hazy IPA, Double IPA, and our community Hop Harvest Pale Ale, to the classics such as Cherry Valley Smoked Porter, Otsego Golden Ale, Jessica’s Red Ale, and more. Our beers rotate seasonally, so check out our current beer menu to see what’s on draft. Stay and enjoy a pint or order a flight of 4 different beers for a personalized beer tasting. Then, take home a 4-pack of cans, a growler of any draft beer, or order a keg of your favorite Red Shed style.
Winter Update: As of December 27, 2020, both Taprooms are closed for the season.
A Brewery the Whole Family will Love
We are a family-friendly brewery and taproom. We are pet-friendly for well-behaved dogs (on a leash) in the beer garden, so you don’t need to leave a family member behind. With a kid’s menu and outdoor seating, we are a perfect spot for kid-friendly and pet-friendly dining. At the beer garden, kids and pups will enjoy fresh air, family time, and a food menu that keeps everyone happy.
The Farm Brewer Promise
Red Shed Brewery is a New York State farm brewery, which means that at least 60% of our beer ingredients and hops need to be grown in New York State. Because our brewers love working with our neighbors so much, we’ve been using 80-100% New York hops and malts for our beers since 2018!
