MellowThey have been called session ales, lawnmower beers, and crossovers. These beers are strong on flavor, low in alcohol and tame in hop bitterness. At Hopshire we offer fruit beers, wheat beers, lighter ales and light lagers to quench your thirst. Grab a growler or two of these drinkable brews.
Raspberry Wheat Ale - 4.8 abv, 20 IBU
Nothing says summer like the smell and taste of fresh raspberries. We have captured that flavor in Brambles raspberry wheat beer. This beer uses malt grown locally by Thor Orschener in Newfield and nearly 50 pounds of pure raspberry puree. Unfiltered and no preservatives like all of the Hopshire beers. Enjoy!
7.8 abv, 30 IBU
A malty brown ale fermented with Scottish Edinburgh yeast. Flaked oats and six different barley malts including chocolate, dark crystal and amber malts are used in this rich tasting ale. Lightly hopped to let out the sweetness of the malt. A fun beer to make and a fun beer to drink.
5.0 abv, 45 IBUs
To hop or not to hop….., This IPA is refreshing and lower in ABV so you can enjoy more of it. Only light grains, pale, Vienna and Pilsen malt are used. The hops are a combination of west coast Mosaic and Cascade from Lyke Road Farm in T-burg for both the boil and dry hopping. The taste is bitter sweet with a fruitiness contributed by the Mosaic hops. Hop on your lawnmower and put a pint in the cup holder.
India Pale Ale
7.5 abv, 74 IBU
A hop farm needs a big American IPA. We start with a solid malt base of pale and caramel malts and then add hops (a lot of them!) five times during the boil. We don’t stop there. We add to the serving tank in a process we call “Laced with hops”. Hopheads – find your NearVarna.
7.0 abv, 70 IBUs
This Cascadian ale gets a roasty taste from a big dose of dark crystal malt and a dash of roasted barley. Aggressive hop flavor from Nugget and Falconer’s Flight (a blend of the 7 C's of hops) added during the boil. "Laced with hops" in the serving tank using Cascade and Nugget. Enjoy the darker side of hops.
Double India Pale Ale
9.5 ABV, 90 IBUs
The HOP SCENE in New York is improving with each season and since we are in the FINGER Lakes there was only one possible name for this double IPA. We pulled many pounds of local Cascade, Chinook and Centennial hops from the freezer for this brew that is big, bold and bitter. This is a sipper to enjoy in small glasses. If you know someone who likes their beer extremely bitter.....give ‘em the bird.
