Handcrafted with local ingredients
Handmade, traditional local beer brewed fresh in the hills of Cherry Valley, New York. Red Shed Brewery produces small-batch craft brews available only locally in and around Cooperstown, NY. We love beer and are proud of the quality, style, and drinkability of our brew.
Our original brewery location in Cherry Valley may be hard to find, but once you are there, you will understand why it is worth the trip! Open only during the weekends during warm months, the original Red Shed Taproom & Brewery has outdoor seating with a view of the rolling hills that are so well-known in the Southern Tier region of NY. Our Cooperstown location has 20 taps, a warm-weather beer garden, open throughout the seasons, and is perfect for larger groups.
Stop by and introduce yourself — we look forward to getting to know you. Cheers!
