2016 Festival of Farmhouse Ales

August 13, 2016

12 - 4 p.m.

Hill Farmstead Brewery

 403 Hill Road, Greensboro Bend, Vt. 05842

 

This is our favorite and most intimate event. Again this year, we will offer a package that includes a tasting glass, beer samples, designated driver ticket (see note below) and music. Food is not included, and there will be no camping. 

Tickets are $100 each; up to 2 tickets per purchase. In an effort to give as many people as possible an equitable chance at tickets for our August 13 event, we will once again use a lottery-style format; randomly selected entries will be chosen from submission forms through TicketsToday. 

REGISTRATION IS CLOSED! 

Many of our favorite farmhouse ales and oak-aged variants will be available. Several guests will be joining us with beer, as well!

Designated Drivers

We will once again 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 enter with their designated driver; attendees without a designated driver will not be admitted. DDs may only use ONE voucher. If you use a taxi service or other commercial transportation service, you MUST be dropped off at the entry gate so that a volunteer can confirm your arrival to allow entrance into the event. We will have ample volunteers to ensure a smooth drop off.
