Unique Craft Beer Made in Upstate, NY


Our Brewery, Beer Bar, & Bistro

Located between Albany & Binghamton and about 30 minutes from Cooperstown, Roots Brewing offers a rotating selection hand-crafted ales made on site.  We also boast a well-curated selection of foreign, domestic, and regional beer on tap and in bottles. 

Roots opened its doors in  August 2014 by friends Jason Parrish and Russell Scimeca.  Jason's experience in product research & development at Brewery Ommegang and Russ's passion for homebrewing sparked an idea- opening the first craft brewery in Oneonta, NY.  

Brewmaster Jason crafts solid, well-balanced beers that reflect traditional brewing methods, as well as a fusion of flavors to create something new and taste-worthy.   Our eclectic food menu focuses on using regional, organic and sustainably produced ingredients and products when possible.  A relaxed place to get a bite and enjoy a pint.
