Anniversary Week Update 2019

A few familiar faces from our 1st anniversary celebration, way back in 2011!A few familiar faces from our 1st anniversary celebration, way back in 2011!

As our anniversary week approaches, we would like to announce a few items and remind everyone of what's ahead...

Vera Mae • Juicy

We will release two beers this coming week:

Vera Mae 2018

Vera Mae (1889-1975) was our grandfather's eldest sister; Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to her and her 13 siblings. In her honor, this Farmstead® ale is crafted from American malted barley; Vermont organic spelt; organic buckwheat; organic wheat; hops; Vermont wildflower honey; dandelion flowers from our fields; our farmhouse yeast; and water from our well. This is the 2018 batch of our Farmstead® spring blossom ale, aged in wine barrels.

We hope to be able to start picking dandelions for the 2019 batch, so stay tuned for sign ups and information!

Juicy - 375ml

Juicy is inspired by our love for New Zealand—the adventures had therein, and the journeys grown from without. Our love for the landscape, the agriculture, and the spirited reflection of its inhabitants more than 15 years ago has led to the vision of what lies before you. After 10 months conditioning in wine barrels with our resident microflora, the beer that we have referred to as Juicy is now ready to be enjoyed.

Onsite Experience
Throughout the week, we'll have our retail shop stocked up with a variety of cans, lots of bottles, and some vintage offerings. Stay tuned to Instagram and Facebook for daily updates.

On Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, we'll offer special onsite only offerings on draft and in bottles. For Saturday, anticipating a larger turnout, we will offer a limited onsite menu to expedite service.

Caja Madera will be on site throughout the entire week serving up tacos and more.

Clover Release - 15 May, 2019

SOLD OUT!

On Weds., 15 May, we will release, at long last, the new batch of Clover—an exceptional and special offering, one quite close to my heart.

When I began working here—which seems like both forever and a day ago—I had a constant companion in the old office: a seemingly simple, completely composed cat named Clover. She was independent, playful, occasionally subdued and reflective. Clover was our compatriot, our guardian of grain, our huntress and our muse. We did not own Clover; she graced our presence, and we were glad for it.

In her honor, we mindfully blended our favorite barrels of Ann and Art, each of which had been aged for 24 months—guided by her lingering spirit towards a beer of elegance, grace and patience.

As our Clover often would, this beer took its own path and its own time to become what it is now: an effervescent, refined reflection of both our melancholy for her departure but, most importantly, our joy in traveling with her for a while.

We will have a tent set up outside the bottle shop to provide as much comfort as possible for those of you joining us in the event of inclement spring weather. However, it is the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont: watch the weather and plan accordingly!

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. Please note: to accommodate as many people as is fairly possible, this bottle is limited to 1 bottle per person for the duration of the release—not per person per day.

Check our website for release details.

Cheers! Bob

Bottle Release for 15 May, 2019

On Weds., 15 May, we will release another batch of our barrel-aged What is Enlightenment?.

Originally brewed to celebrate our second anniversary, What is Enlightenment? is an American pale ale crafted with Simcoe® and Amarillo® hops. We aged a small portion of freshly brewed beer in a variety of French oak barrels for over 8 months, dry-hopped with Simcoe® and Amarillo® and then bottle conditioned. The result: a bright, enlivening and aromatic beer that dares one to be wise and seek reason.

Visit our bottle release page for bottle limits and pricing information this evening (credit card and matching ID required for these bottles).

Bottle release for 8 May, 2019

On Weds., 8 May, we will release Flora aged on a blend of plum varieties from the 2018 Vermont fruit harvest.

Bottle releases for 1 May, 2019

Genealogy of Morals: Rum Barrel—Coffee Collective: Duver Rojas


Leaves of Grass: December 6, 2017

 

For this coming Weds., May 1, we will release two new beers:

Genealogy of Morals: Rum Barrel—Coffee Collective: Duver Rojas
Genealogy of Morals, the name of one of our most coveted Nietzschean narratives, also happens to be our barrel-aged wheat imperial stout. After aging for more than 16 months in Privateer Rum barrels, we further conditioned the beer atop coffee from the Las Delicias farm in Huila, Colombia, owned and run by the Rojas family, and 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.

Leaves of Grass: December 6, 2017
Leaves of Grass represents our brewery's collective pursuit to create, explore, and challenge. For each batch, we employ uniquely different processes and ingredients. This particular batch was brewed with organic Vermont oats, organic Vermont spelt, and New Zealand hops, then aged in oak puncheons for 6 months and further conditioned in bottles for nearly 10 months.
