About Us

At Red Shed, we don’t just love making craft beer … we love that our beer brings people together. Our neighbors and visitors are the reason we do what we do – we want to provide beer you can drink with friends, delicious food you can share with friends and events where you can make memories with friends.

We began in 2015 as an evolution of founder Jack Hasbrouck’s homebrewing hobby. The brewery’s name comes from the little red milkshed on Jack’s property. In 2016, we converted that signature red shed into a taproom that’s open on weekends during warm months. That’s our Cherry Valley Taproom. It houses six taps of fresh Red Shed beer in addition to serving local wines and ciders. Not to mention the outdoor seating with a view of the rolling hills that are so well-known in the Southern Tier region of NY. Ask to see the on-site brewery when you visit!

Our second location opened in 2017 to serve our Cooperstown customers. The Cooperstown Taproom is home to the “Fresh Eats” food truck serving a full dining menu three months of the year to complement the numerous taps of delicious Red Shed Beer, and a limited, delicious menu from our indoor kitchen during the winter months. In the summer, the outdoor beer garden is open with yard games, a music stage and two large open-air tents.

Our third and newest location opened on Main Street in Cherry Valley in 2022. Inspired by Jack’s world travels, the Red Shed Ale House is reminiscent of an English pub. The dark and cozy taproom serves cask ales and a rotating menu of English-inspired small dishes.
