We are a very small batch Farm-Brewery in Claverack NY. I’ve had a passion for craft beer as long as I can remember, but started brewing it myself in 2011. I’ve tried many kinds of craft beers to learn what flavors each encompasses and to select what characteristics I wanted to emphasize most in each type of beer I brew, to make them unique to Old Klaverack Brewery. We are the Town of Claverack’s first brewery!!!! Our mission is to craft one of a kind beer using locally sourced ingredients from the Town of Claverack along with surrounding town’s, counties and NYS. We currently have 4 main beers that we offer Klauver Rachen (Belgian Specialty), Red Mills (Amber Ale), Dunbar Stout, and Uncle Fud’s Rye Pale Ale. We will be offer many seasonals as the year progresses, our Pumpkin Hallow (Pumpkin Ale) & Hallowed pungkin Stout along with many others to come!!
Old Klaverack Hop Farm was started in 2014 as an experimental project. After the initial planting of three varieties of hops, Cascade, Galena, and Fuggles in the spring the plants did extremely well and we hoped that harvest would tell the tale we wanted to hear, and it did. Harvest time yielded more than we expected for 1st year plants and the size, quality and aroma was exceptional. We did not send any of the harvest out for alpha acid testing but plan extensive testing next harvest and beyond! We are expanding in our 2nd year to approximately 150 to 170 plants of the same three varieties. This includes the installation of an extensive trellis system to accommodate the vibrant hop bine growth. If the second year planting yields anything like the first year we plan to expand with a third year planting with a approximate total of 500 to 650 plants to supply not only Old Klaverack Brewery but also any other local brewery and home brewers.
