Our Beers


They 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.


Honey Blonde Ale
5.2 ABV, 10 IBU

This beer is made with 100% New York grown ingredients! Barley from Omara Farm in Canastota, basswood honey from Morse Mills in Moravia and hops grown by Clair Haus in Lansing. This ale is light in color with a mellow honey flavor.


This category contains the core of craft beers – pale ales, IPAs, red and brown ales. These beers are higher in alcohol, offer more malty flavor and may feature lots of hop flavor and bitterness. Watch for us to sneak in a small Belgian beer or a big wheat beer into this group.

Shire Ale

Scottish Ale
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.

The Barley Stone

Irish Dry Stout
4.5 abv, 32 IBUs

True to the Irish heritage of this beer style we have used 40 pounds of unmalted, roasted barley in the grain bill. Roasted barley provides the nose and taste of dark roasted coffee, then this dark ale is lightly hopped with New York Willamette and British Kent Goldings varieties. You will bend over backwards enjoying the Barley Stone.

Sneaky Weasel

8.0 ABV, 20 IBU

This brew is a brown lager with a light body and smoothness that makes it very drinkable. While it drinks like a light beer this is strong at 8% abv; hence the name, Sneaky Weasel. The grain bill includes Pilsen, Munich and wheat malt along with chocolate malt that imparts a mahogany color. Watch out for the weasel!


These beers are not for the timid. This group includes beers with dark roasty malts, high alcohol content or over-the-top hops. Belgian beers with high ABV are in this group. These are sipping beers to be enjoyed in small glasses with friends.

Hop Onyx

Black IPA
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.


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.


Belgian Pale with Ginger
8.0 abv, 18 IBU

Unlike any beer you have had. Pilsner, Munich and Belgian malts form the base for this beer which is fermented with Belgian abbey ale yeast. Fresh, grated ginger grown locally at Good Life Farm is added to the boil. Delicious with Thai food.

Acers Wild

Imperial Maple Nut Brown
9.5 ABV, 19 IBU

This surprisingly smooth ale is brewed with Grade A New York maple syrup and barley malt and lightly hopped with Cascade hops to reinforce its American ale character. Sip it in small glasses and share with friends, you deserve it.
