Nestled in Upstate and just outside of Cooperstown, Cooperstown Brewing Company was founded in 1995. We combine baseball and brewing so that you can celebrate America's past time in the right way.
The brewery was formally a milk plant known for its "pineapple cheese." The cheese was hung in cloth bags from the ceiling and subsequently formed to resemble a pineapple. Upon our conception, the brewery was the only 20-barrel brewing system built by the experts at Peter Austin Partners, Ltd. out of Ringwood, England. The system is known internationally for its use of authentic, traditional brewing methods to handcraft consistent, quality ales. Our original bottling line was bought from Sam Adams brewery who had purchased the industrial beast years before from Coca-Cola. CBC's founder was a big fan of baseball and between his interest and our location, baseball became the theme of the brewery. Most of the beers and merchandise have since been attributed to the theme.
In 2014 our brewery changed ownership to Northern Eagle Beverages, Inc. of Oneonta, NY. NEB is the first distribution company to own a brewery. With their love of beer, they wanted to develop all facets of the industry from production with their association with Hager Hops, Northern Eagle Hop Pelletizing and CBC to their distribution network.
Since NEB's ownership began, the beer production has halted at the brewery itself. All our brewing is done at Glens Falls Brewing Company in Queensbury, NY. While we originally started on a 20-barrel system, we now operate with a 50-barrel and pilot brew system. Our lineup has grown over the years to include a variety of brews and our Pop Fly soda line.
Whether it be a stop on the Cooperstown Beverage Trail or hanging out with family and friends you don't want to miss us! Cheers!
