Peleg Hill Jr. (1757-1831) was our great, great, great, great grandfather and one of Greensboro’s original inhabitants. In his honor, we crafted our interpretation of a traditional/historical old ale and reserved it with our resident microflora in third-fill bourbon barrels from some of our favorite distilleries. For over 18 months, it was allowed to leisurely develop its complex, unique flavors and express both the character of its environs and its history.
This inaugural batch of Peleg was brewed with our Danish friends Rune and Per Olaf from Bryggeriet Djævlebryg and Anders Kissmeyer of Kissmeyer Brewing.
Shirley Mae (1936 - 2015) was our cousin, daughter of Everett, and a beloved supporter of her family and Hill Farmstead. In her honor, this American session version of our Everett porter is crafted from American malted barley, English and German roasted malts, American hops, our ale yeast, and water from our well. Chocolate, coffee, and light malty sweetness, this ale embodies her ebullient and generous spirit—a fitting tribute. 3.8% abv
Vera Mae 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 Vermont organic spelt, American hops, Vermont wildflower honey, dandelion flowers from our fields, our farmhouse yeast and water from our well. Aged in French oak wine barrels and bottled conditioned, the result is an elegant, luminescent representation of spring in Vermont: lightly tart, bright, effervescent and delicate—passing quickly while leaving just the slightest, most pleasing memory of sunshine, warmth and the promise of more. Best enjoyed chilled between 45-50F. 6% abv
