Genealogy - Coffee Collective Finca Vista Hermosa Natural

UPDATE: This has sold out as of Thursday, 11 April. Thank you!

In what we envision will be the first of many upcoming draft-only releases, we will offer a special variant of Genealogy in our taproom for both onsite enjoyment and to-go 750ml growlers beginning this week.

For this selection of Genealogy, our stainless-conditioned coffee imperial stout (the base beer for Genealogy of Morals), we have chosen to condition the beer atop Guatemalan Finca Vista Hermosa (Natural) roasted by The Coffee Collective in Copenhagen, Denmark.

For more information about the coffee selected, please visit Coffee Collective's website to read the story of its selection and processing of this wonderful coffee [https://coffeecollective.dk/2019/01/finca-vista-hermosa-natural-2019].

This will be available in the tasting room by the glass and for take-away in 750ml growlers (2L growlers not available).

Check the retail page on our website for all the details.

Bottle Release For April 10, 2019

For this coming Weds., 10 April, we will release a brand 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 December of 2016, we crafted this beer with malted wheat and Vermont maple syrup. It then rested contentedly in hand-selected bourbon barrels from one of our favorite distilleries for nearly two years.

Please visit our bottle release page 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 Difference & Repetition: Nelson Sauvin™️/Simcoe® to go.

Bottle release for 27 March, 2019

On Weds., March 27, we will release a new batch of E. in our retail shop
here in Greensboro Bend, Vt.

From Shaun:

E. is for Edward (1917-2002), my grandfather, as well as the name of the first beer that I brewed in my brewery on March 30, 2010. E. is for Easter; brewing in Denmark revealed a European tradition of crafting Easter (Påske) beer. Finally, E. is for entelechy, the continued actualization of our potential through spirited effort and vision. Thus, in honor of E., to the past and future emprises here on Hill Road, we offer this special beer: Edward fermented with our Farmstead® yeast; aged in oak barrels; dry-hopped with Amarillo®, Simcoe®, and Galaxy™ hops; and bottle conditioned.

Ann Release 2019

Ann is the wine barrel-fermented and aged version of Anna (1902-1993), our grandfather's sister as well as the name of our honey Farmstead® ale. After being placed in wine barrels, the evolution of Anna into Ann is an indeterminate and metamorphic occurrence. Only a single digit percentage of wine barrel-aged Anna becomes what is unmistakably identifiable as Ann—the beer, the barrel, and some yet unknown, unquantifiable condition seems to dictate its path and appearance. It is identified and selected only through the emotional response that it induces during barrel tasting. Aged in French oak barrels for between 16 and 30 months, and then bottle conditioned for nearly 4 years, this is the standard that reflects, redefines, and guides the progressive vision of Hill Farmstead.

To make the sale of this new batch of Ann as smooth as possible, we will use a ticketed lottery system. Doing so will reduce parking issues, make travel arrangements easier for buyers, make it as fair as possible, and help improve the entire experience!

Each 750ml bottle is $100 plus 6% Vermont State Sales Tax, plus a Universe service fee.

The ticket process will be in the same spirit as a musical performance with shows taking place over the course of four days. Each day will feature its own lottery drawing; just like a concert, you can try for one day or all four! Each lottery is a separate drawing. One (1) entry per person per pick-up day. Ann is limited to a maximum of one bottle per winner, though you may enter multiple days, there will not be multiple winners.

Onsite Bottle Release For March 20, 2019

This coming Weds., March 20, we will introduce a new interpretation of Ann for onsite enjoyment only:

Anne (Yellow Raspberry)

Ann is the wine barrel-fermented and aged version of Anna (1902-1993), our grandfather's sister as well as the name of our honey Farmstead® ale. The evolution of Anna into Ann is an indeterminate and metamorphic occurrence; only a single digit percentage of all wine barrel-aged Anna becomes what is unmistakably identifiable as Ann.

The result: an auspicious evolution of Ann into Anne (Yellow Raspberry)—a unique, beautiful expression of serendipity, nature, and patience.

Please note: this beer will only be available for enjoyment onsite in our tasting room, not for take away, and in an effort to extend the experience to as many people as possible, we will require each bottle be shared between two guests. Thank you for your understanding.

Visit our retail page for a complete listing of this week's availability for cans, bottles and more.

Bottle Release For March 13, 2019

This coming Weds., 13 March, we will release a new expression of our Brother Soigné:

Soignée

Ages ago, our dear friend Bim Lafontaine traveled from Japan to brew with us the inaugural batch of Brother Soigné, a collaboration that we continue to produce in the spirit of that visit.

A small portion of a subsequent batch was aged atop raspberry, cherry and northern kiwifruit pomace for nearly 3 months. The result honors both the legacy of that first brew day and the satisfaction of exploration.

Bottle release for 27 February, 2019

On Weds., 27 February, we will release two new beers in our retail shop here in Greensboro Bend.

Barrel-Aged Table Dorothy
Our low-abv Farmstead® table pale ale—crafted from American malted barley, malted wheat, New Zealand and American hops, our distinctive yeast blend, and water from our well—was conditioned for 6 months in wine barrels and then dry-hopped with Mosaic® and Simcoe® before packaging and bottle conditioning.

Civil Disobedience #23
This iteration in our series of blended barrel-aged Farmstead® ales is a curation of beers brewed in November of 2014 and May 2015, consisting primarily of Arthur aged in wine barrels that formerly held Le Sarrasin and Art, as well as wine barrel aged Florence and a single thread of wine barrel aged Anna. After more than two years of extended bottle conditioning, this beer is now ready for release. Please open and consume between 44ºF and 50ºF.

Rhetorica

In November of 2017, Shaun and I made a trip to the Czech Republic—a momentous one, in hindsight. Our inspiration from the experiences had there have been expressed most recently through Poetica and Memoria. One of my fondest memories was the discovery of true Czech dark lager (tmavé pivo). A perfect synthesis of slight roast, creamy carbonation, hinted-at hops—and immense satisfaction.

So, in October of 2018, Shaun brewed our first single-decocted dark lager and conditioned it at 3º Celsius—as we have with Poetica and Memoria—in one of our French oak puncheons for more than 3 months. The beer was then moved to stainless steel and krausened with fresh-fermenting lager to provide slow, gentle, natural carbonation. 

This Wednesday, 20 February, we proudly pour for you Rhetorica. 

Like Poetica and Memoria, Rhetorica furthers our exploration of wood-conditioned lagers, typifying our commitment to respectful yet forward-thinking refinement of classical brewing styles—a quiet veneration of the past that guides a progressive aspiration towards the future. 

Rhetorica instantly transports me back to a warm spring day spent overlooking the Vltava and the spires of Praha from Letná Park while savoring a classic tmavé pivo—a gift, indeed.

Soft. Sincere. Simple.

Please note that if you're unable to visit us here in Vermont, our friends at Armsby Abbey in Worcester, Mass., will be the exclusive off-site location for pouring Rhetorica. We're grateful for their role in sharing this (and many of our other) special beers with you.

Děkuji,

Bob M.
