Bottle Shop for the Week of March 28

In our bottle shop, beginning Wednesday, March 29, we will release Birth of Tragedy: Kochere, an imperial porter brewed with honey and aged on Kochere coffee from Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia, in apple brandy barrels. 

We have chosen two barrels of Birth of Tragedy as the base for this single origin coffee experiment.  After aging for 20 months in apple brandy barrels, we conditioned the beer atop Ethiopian Kochere coffee beans sourced and roasted by The Coffee Collective in Copenhagen, Denmark.  These friends long ago changed our worldview as to what coffee could be.  After months of bottle conditioning, the beer is ready for release. 

375ml, $20, limit 1 per person (credit card and matching ID required, please see our bottle release policy). 

Retail hours next week are Wednesday - Saturday, from 12 p.m. - 5 p.m.

Let it Snow... 

Winter is still here, but so are we.  Hill Farmstead will be open regular hours this week, starting tomorrow on Wednesday, March 15 from 12pm – 5pm. 

The roads are bumpy out there.  Drive safe.  

March 15 Update: we’re open for business as usual in our Retail shop, but please be advised that travel conditions are not ideal and most of the roads are still covered due to drifts. Slow and steady, travel safely!

Brother Soigné - January 18, 2017

The Future is Now!  Well, not entirely.  We bottled up the latest batch of one of our favorite Grassroots beers, Brother Soigné, in January of this year.  

We must have had warmer weather months on our mind at the moment, and as a result, a portion of the bottles were date stamped incorrectly.  While still a forward thinking beer, this bottle is not from the future.  The correct bottle date is 2017 01 18.  Cheers!

Bottle Shop for the Week of March 14

Next Wednesday, March 15, we will release bottles of Arthur Puncheon for sale in our Retail bottle shop. 

Arthur (1922-2005) was our grandfather's youngest brother; Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to him and his 13 siblings.  In his honor, this version of Arthur was aged for many months in our puncheons--not quite Arthur, not quite Art, but magical all the same.  Unfiltered and naturally carbonated, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Arthur. 

375ml, $15, limit 2 per person (credit card and matching ID required, please see our 
bottle release policy).

Retail operation hours are Wednesday - Saturday, from 12pm - 5pm.

Onsite Selection for Week of March 7

This Wednesday, March 8, we will be releasing Flora: Cherry/Raspberry bottles onsite in our taproom...

Flora is the wine barrel-aged version of Florence (1915-1967), our grandfather's sister as well as the name of our Farmstead® wheat ale.  A single barrel was selected and aged on a blend of fresh, hand-picked cherries and berries from Elmore and the Champlain Valley.  The result is a complex, elegant, fruit-forward blend that both marries and highlights each of its constituent elements. 

375ml, $33, Onsite consumption only. 

Flora: Cherry/Raspberry will be available to share here onsite during our regular Retail business hours from Wednesday - Saturday, from 12pm - 5pm!

Bottle Shop for the Week of February 28

This next week marks the arrival of March and the return of Earl to the retail bottle shop.

Earl (1911 – 1985) was our grandfather’s brother and Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that once was home to him and his 13 siblings.  In his honor, this stout was brewed with American malted barley, raw oats, American hops, freshly roasted coffee, our ale yeast and water from our well.  This is the ale that I dream to have shared with Earl.

500ml, $8.

As usual, we’re open Wednesday – Saturday from 12 – 5pm.

Bottle Shop for the Week of February 21

On Wednesday, February 22, we are releasing the next installment of our Civil Disobedience series of beers. 

Civil Disobedience, our nonviolent protest against the homogenization of flavor, comes in the form of a spontaneous, circumstantial and unpredicted series of beer releases.  We relinquish control in favor of an anarchistic collaboration of microbial activity.  This is the expression of our conscience, our opposition to oppression and an act of creative freedom. 

Release #19 is a blend of beers brewed in fall/winter 2014, consisting primarily of first, second, and third filled 225 liter and 500 liter barrels of Arthur and Florence in addition to several other fractional threads. 

750ml, $30, limit 4 per person (credit card and matching ID required, please see our bottle release policy).

Everett, our American Porter, will also return to the bottle shop selection on Wednesday. 

500ml, $8

Anna, our Vermont Honey Ale brewed with locally produced honey, will also again be available.

750ml, $10

We are open Wednesday - Saturday, from 12pm - 5pm.

Bottle Releases For The Week of February 14

On Wednesday, February 15, two different beers will return to the bottle shop selection:

Brother Soigné

750ml, $10

Brother Soigné is a tart, refreshing Farmstead® ale brewed with lime, hibiscus, and blood orange.  This ale embodies the spirit of perpetual creative collaboration in conjunction with disciplined brewing endeavor.

Elaborative 4

750ml, $10

The Elaborative is a brewing collaboration with like-minded friends.  A fermentative experiment through thoughtful enquiry and discourse.  A desire to further our understanding of the interactive complexities of our process while trying to abandon our preconceptions. 

In early August of 2015, our friends Brad Clark of Jackie O's Pub & Brewery, Chad Yakobson of Crooked Stave Artisan Ales and Cory King of Side Project Brewing joined us to create a beer inspired by the German radler.  We have once again brewed this light, refreshing ale with ample amounts of grapefruit zest and juice and oats. 

We are open Wednesday - Saturday from 12 p.m. - 5 p.m. in our Retail bottle shop.
