Our Beers

Mellow

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.

Beehave

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.

Brambles

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!

Patriot Grains

American Amber Ale
5.7 ABV, 25 IBUs

During the American Revolution, Ben Franklin appealed to the colonists to "brew locally" and not import from the big breweries in England. In that spirit we have brewed an American amber ale. this beer features malty goodness and is dry-hopped with Liberty for balance (the hop varietal, not the concept). Join the Revolution!

Middling

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.

Dragon Ash

Porter
4.8 ABV, 25 IBUs

A porter is a hearty ale historically enjoyed by the working class. Our porter commemorates the rich maltiness of several dark roasted barely malts. Lighter in body than a stout, a porter is an exceptionally smooth beer to drink. Kent Godings hops are used sparingly to keep the bitterness low and let the malt shine, After a hard week of work, we have what you need and what describes you.... Dragon Ash.

Hamlet of Varna

Session IPA
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.

Mighty

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.

Zingabeer

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.

Hopscene Gesture

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.
