Onsite Bottle Release for January 16, 2019

On Weds., January 16, we will release a new Flora variant for onsite enjoyment only, this one with blackberries.

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 a single barrel of Flora and aged it atop fresh, hand-picked local blackberries from our neighboring town of Glover.

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

Visit our retail page for complete information and retail offerings.

Bottle Release For January 9, 2019

For this coming Weds., January 9, we will release a new batch of Beyond Good and Evil.

Beyond Good and Evil is one of Nietzsche’s most powerful works, challenging convention, 'wisdom' and 'morality;' urging us to transcend the restrictive, bounded concepts of good and evil; and confronting the relative nature of 'knowledge.' This both informs and inspires our work.

Beyond Good and Evil is also the name of our bourbon barrel-aged maple imperial stout. Brewed in January of 2017, we crafted this beer with malted wheat and Vermont maple syrup, then conditioned it in bourbon barrels from a variety of our favorite distilleries for nearly two years.

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).

Visit our retail page for complete information and retail offerings, including fresh cans of Double Citra to go.

Bottle Release For December 26, 2018

For Weds., Dec. 26., we will release a new batch of Barrel-Aged Everett.

This is the bourbon barrel-aged version of Everett (1908-1939), our grandfather's brother, as well as the name of our robust porter. In his honor, we brewed a richer, more complex version of our porter and aged it in select bourbon barrels for 18 months. The beer rested contentedly, absorbing and harmonizing with all that the oak had to offer, taking on the complex characters that time and spirit provide. Naturally carbonated and unfiltered, this is the beer that we wish to have shared with Everett.

Please visit our bottle release page for bottle limits and pricing information (credit card and matching ID required).

The Debut of Poetica 3

Hello and a Happy Holiday Season to Everyone! 

This week we present to you on draft in our taproom Poetica 3: our single-decocted, wood-lagered, naturally carbonated and Czech-inspired iteration of what a "Pilsner" might be.  This iteration of our Poetica project is summarized below: 

After a trip to Pilsen (Czech Republic) last November with Bob, I returned with a creative drive to elevate Mary, our German-style Pilsner, to a higher state of elegance and refinement. In what will likely become an exhausting pursuit of reformation and refinement, we began lagering a portion of Mary in a single French oak puncheon in our cooler.  That beer became known as Poetica 1 and, shortly thereafter, we released a yet further refined version known as Poetica 2.  In each of these attempts, after nearly two months, the lagered beer was moved to tank and krausened (as is all of our lager) with fresh fermenting beer in order to provide natural carbonation. We then provide nearly 3 months of further conditioning and slow carbonation in tank.  In Poetica 3, we have utilized the same process but chosen to demonstrate the possibilities of a co-fermentation of Czech and German lager yeast along with a single decoction mash and a hop profile that is entirely Czech Saaz.

I am confident that we can present you with what should become a singular experience—our Pilsner has been softened, refined, and elevated.

We will continue this pursuit through further lager experimentation and you will soon see other iterations in the coming year. This is an immersion into origins, into simplicity, and a gift granted by obsessive singular possession.

Gratefully yours,

Shaun

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).
