Helderberg Brewery Taproom

Helderberg Brewery is a NYS Farm Brewery and tap room on the beautiful, 100-acre estate of the Carey Institute for Global Good in historic Rensselaerville, NY. We source nearly 100% of our hops and grain from local farms. 

With easy access to the Edmund Niles Huyck Preserve trail system and a short drive to Kuhar Family Farm Market & Cafe, we are a great day-trip destination. Our outdoor patio and fireplace are open in the summer and fall months and we welcome families with children. 

Your purchases at the brewery directly support New York State farmers and our craft beverage incubator. We hope you enjoy our locally grown and brewed beer.

Here's a map showing Farm Brewery vs. Farm Brewery-Microbrewery licenses as of Dec 2019. Of the 209 operations, 72 (34%) hold dual licenses. We'll revisit this map in 6 or 12 months to see what's changed. Click the maps or the links for a closer look: | ... See MoreSee Less
