2017 Festival of Farmhouse Ales

August 5, 2017

12 - 4 p.m.

Hill Farmstead Brewery

 403 Hill Road, Greensboro Bend, Vt. 05842

This is our favorite and most intimate event. Once again, we will offer a package that includes a tasting glass, beer samples, designated driver ticket (see note below) and music. Food is not included. There will be no camping and dogs are not allowed. Complete beer list  announced at a later date.

Tickets are $100 each, plus service fees and shipping; up to 2 tickets per purchase. In an effort to give as many people as possible an equitable chance at tickets for our August 5 event, randomly selected entries by TicketsToday entries will be chosen from submission forms on its site.

We will share many of our favorite farmhouse ales and oak aged variants. Several guests will be joining us with beer and cider, as well!

Retail Hours August 4-5: TBA

Gates open at 11:30 a.m.; taps open at 12 p.m.

Designated Drivers

We have once again elected to require designated drivers for attendees. We will provide a free designated driver ticket with each ticket purchase (one DD ticket per pair or single ticket purchased). The DD ticket will include free non-alcoholic beverages (local root beer, kombucha, etc.), a voucher good for one food purchase per individual from our vendors and event entry to enjoy the music and (we hope!) wonderful weather. Carpooling and DD-sharing is encouraged, especially for those of you coming from great distances. Attendees must either enter with their designated driver or be validated by one of our volunteers at the entry if being dropped off by a commercial transport service (taxi, bus, etc.); attendees without a designated driver or failing to be properly validated at the entrance will not be admitted (no exceptions). DDs may only use ONE voucher.
