Bottle Release For December 12, 2018

For this coming Weds., Dec. 12., we will release Fear & Trembling as well as a new Flora variant with Raspberries.

Fear and Trembling is a Baltic-style porter brewed with malt that was hand-smoked over a blend of native woods, first brewed with our friend and former colleague, Anders Kissmeyer. This version was fermented in the traditional way, with lager yeast, and conditioned in stainless steel.

Flora is the wine barrel-aged version of Florence, our grandfather's sister as well as the name of our Farmstead® wheat ale. We selected two barrels of Flora and aged it atop fresh raspberries from Fisher Brothers Farm in Shelburne, Vt.

Please visit our bottle release page, http://hillfarmstead.com/bottle-release, for bottle limits and pricing information (credit card and matching ID required for Flora: Raspberry).

Bottle Release For December 5, 2018

On Weds., December 5, we will release a special new coffee variant of Genealogy of Morals: Finca Vista Hermosa

We chose two barrels of our wheat imperial stout, Genealogy of Morals, as the base for a series of single origin coffee experiments. After aging 20 months in select bourbon barrels, we conditioned the beer atop Finca Vista Hermosa's Guatemalan coffee beans sourced and roasted by The Coffee Collective in Copenhagen. These friends long ago changed our world-view as to what coffee could be. After months of bottle conditioning, the beer is now ready for release.

We will also have fresh cans of Nelson IPA, along with a great selection of other cans and bottle offerings. Visit our retail page for updated information.

Clover Release Postponed

Hello everyone,

It is with great remorse that we must postpone tomorrow's bottle release of Clover.

Mother Nature has proven to not be our ally in the last few days. We received heavy rainfall on Sunday (creating slush!) and have received nearly 10 inches of snow over the last 24 hours. Heavy snow is expected to continue until Thursday. Our overflow parking lot, which is already taxed during these much anticipated bottle releases, is unfortunately not serviceable. The tent company has strongly advised us of potential safety issues with the tent being set up in the current weather conditions. Due to these and a host of other reasons, we feel that we are left with no other choice but to postpone the Clover release.

This truly is uncharted territory for us. In our nearly 9 years of business, situations such as this have been a rare occurrence. Our goal is to always offer a safe and enjoyable experience to our guests but - under these circumstances - we do not feel confident that this could be achieved.

We have long feared that winter could cause something of this nature to happen. We will continue to work on improving the customer experience.

We are deeply sorry for any one that has already began traveling or has planned a trip here surrounding this release. This decision was made with the best intentions and for the safety of all customers. For those of you who still intend to visit the brewery this week, please travel carefully! We will make sure we have the vintage cooler well stocked for your onsite enjoyment as well as a great selection of cans to take away with you.

Further information on the release of Clover is forthcoming. It will likely be moved to the late spring when we can be more certain of our weather and ground conditions. We truly hope everyone understands and will join us in the future.

Thank you,

Ben Bruce

Retail Hours
We will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 22, but we are open 12-5 p.m., on Weds., Nov. 21; Friday, Nov. 23; and Saturday, Nov. 24.

Twilight of the Idols
Our winter porter, brewed each autumn with a touch of coffee and cinnamon, and conditioned on vanilla beans. Originally conceived with a friend in 2009 while brewing in Denmark, the name of this beer is inspired by the title of one of the last texts written by one of our philosophical idols, Friedrich Nietzsche.

Bourbon Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup
We fill bourbon barrels from our favorite distilleries with Grade A Amber maple syrup from friends at Peck Family Farm in East Montpelier, Vt. The syrup is aged several months and then packaged in a resealable container.

New Cans
We will have fresh cans of Society & Solitude #6 as well as a new release of Of First and Last Things.

As always, stay tuned to our retail page for complete listings and updates.

Thanks and everyone have a wonderful Thanksgiving,

The Return of Peleg

This coming Wednesday, November 7, we will release a new batch of our Farmstead® Old Ale, Peleg.

Peleg Hill Jr. (1757-1831) was our great, great, great, great grandfather and one of Greensboro's original inhabitants. In his honor, this version of our Farmstead® Old Ale was naturally cooled and open fermented in our outdoor coolship. While conditioning in third fill bourbon barrels for 12 months, it was able to leisurely develop its complex, unique flavors and express both the character of its environs and its history.

Please visit our bottle release page, http://hillfarmstead.com/bottle-release, for bottle limits and pricing information (credit card and matching ID required for this bottle).

We will have fresh cans of Mary and Society & Solitude #5, as well as the debut of a new Wunderkammer Bier: Gathered #1. Please visit our retail page for updated information on these and a wide variety of other offerings.

New For The Week Of October 31, 2018

On Wednesday, 31 October, we will release a new entry in our Civil Disobedience series, this one featuring local cherry crabapples.

Civil Disobedience is our blended barrel-aged series of Farmstead® ales, each one a unique union of carefully selected beers chosen by our brewers to weave often disparate threads into a picture far greater than its individual elements.

Part of this ongoing series also includes pairing blends with seasonal, local fruits. For this release, a new Farmstead® ale aged in puncheons was aged atop cherry crabapples from nearby Elmore, Vt.

Please visit our bottle release page, http://hillfarmstead.com/bottle-release, for bottle limits and pricing information (credit card and matching ID required for this bottle).

We will also have fresh cans of Citra IPA and Society & Solitude #12, a brand new entry in our double IPA series, this one a double red IPA with Centennial, Chinook, Citra® and Simcoe® hops. Please visit our retail page for updated information on these and a wide variety of other offerings.
