Onsite Bottle Release For October 17, 2018

On October 15, 1844, educator, philosopher and poet Friedrich Nietzsche was born in Röcken, Germany. As some of you may have recognized, Nietzsche has been more than merely a progenitor of inspirational beer titles. His own introspection and transformative thought was among the grounding forces that would establish the thought patterns and principles that carried our business into existence.

Thus, to celebrate this anniversary, we will offer a special onsite-only variant of our imperial and barrel-aged porter, Birth of Tragedy, beginning on Wednesday, October 17, in our taproom.

After aging for more than 26 months in a bourbon barrel, we further conditioned the beer atop organic vanilla beans and Finca Alasitas Java coffee beans from Bolivia, sourced and roasted by The Coffee Collective in Copenhagen, Denmark. These friends long ago changed our worldview as to what coffee could be and continue to deeply influence us here at Hill Farmstead.

“... all life rests on appearance, art, illusion, optics, the need for perspective and for error...”

Please note: this beer will only be available for enjoyment onsite in our tasting room, not for take away.

We will also have a section of vintage offerings in the onsite cooler, as well as fresh cans of Double Nelson to-go alongside much more.

Best,

Bob and Shaun

Bottle Release For The Week Of Sept. 26, 2018!

UPDATE: SOLD OUT.

 

On Weds., Sept., 26, we will release a special new coffee variant of Damon: Finca Buena Vista.

 

Damon (1993 - 2004) was our brother—devout and patient in an age of busyness and distraction. In his honor, we offer this version of his namesake imperial stout. We chose two unique barrels that had aged for more than two years and conditioned them atop Finca Buena Vista beans from Bolivia, sourced and roasted by our friends at The Coffee Collective in Copenhagen, Denmark. Following months of bottle conditioning, this special beer is ready for release.

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 Society & Solitude #9, along with a great selection of other cans and bottle offerings. Visit our retail page for updated information.

Bottle Release For The Week Of Sept. 19, 2018!

On Weds., Sept., 19, we will release a new beer: Florence Puncheon!

Florence (1915-1967) was our grandfather’s sister, and Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to her and her 13 siblings. In her honor, we craft this wheat Farmstead® ale from American malted barley, organic Vermont wheat, European and American hops, our distinctive farmhouse yeast and water from our well.

This version of Florence was aged for many months in our puncheons—not quite Florence, not quite Flora, but magical all the same. Unfiltered and naturally carbonated.

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 Society & Solitude #8 and Karma Emulsion, along with loads of other cans and bottle offerings! Visit our retail page for updated information.

Farm to Fire Pizza will join us this week as our food vendor!

Note about our new glassware: The response to the new glassware has been overwhelming and great! Unfortunately, we have sold out for the moment, but they will return. We're awaiting our next shipment, which has been delayed by supply issues; we anticipate they will be available again just before Thanksgiving. Thanks for your patience!
