On-site Sampling of Beer

In light of our new retail area, we want to clarify the rules and guidelines for sampling beer here at tasting room and our brewery.

  • You may only drink within the marked boundaries in/around the brewery and retail area.
  • You may only consume beer purchased as tastings or pours from our tasting room.
  • You may NOT open bottles/growlers you purchased here to drink.
  • You may NOT drink beer brought from offsite from other breweries
  • You may NOT drink in the parking lot, driveway or any part of the property not mentioned above.

If you violate the rules, we are required to dispose of your beverage, and we will ask you to leave immediately.

Please respect and observe these rules. Failure to do so jeopardizes our license, our business and the livelihoods of everyone who works here.

Thanks for your consideration!

FoFA 2015 Fundraising Update

Ron Dufresne, charity coordinator, and Michelle Laflam, director of Four Seasons of Early LearningContinuing our tradition of raising money for local charities and organizations at our festivals, we are proud to announce that our local partner at the Festival of Farmhouse Ales will, for the second year, be Four Seasons of Early Learning.

Four Seasons of Early Learning is a non-profit preschool that serves Greensboro, VT, and the surrounding towns, with the majority of their students coming from single-parent and working families. Funds from our 2014 FoFA helped launch a new Farm-to-Preschool program that taught the children science, math, reading, and healthy eating through a curriculum that included planting a garden, writing recipes, and ultimately serving the food at community events to feed their neighbors. Last year, we raised over $4,500 through the amazing generosity of our attendees.

All funds from this year’s FoFA will go toward expanding the program by building a working farm stand at the preschool.

The fundraiser will be a bottle raffle, featuring several of our favorite bottles from our personal beer cellar. Each raffle ticket will cost $5 (cash only!). Please bring plenty of extra cash, buy plenty of tickets, (with luck) win some great bottles, and—most importantly—help us support the great work of Four Seasons of Early Learning.

New Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup - July 29

On Weds., July 29, we'll release the newest batch of bourbon barrel aged maple syrup in our retail shop during normal retail hours!

Two (2) bottles per person. 750ml. $40 each.

In February of 2015, we received pure Vermont maple syrup from our friends at Peck Family Farm in East Montpelier, Vt. We filled bourbon barrels from our favorite distilleries with various grades of syrup. The syrup was aged for more than three months and then packaged in resealable 750ml flip-top bottles. 

Because of the aging process, you may experience some barreling sediment, but we have taken all possible precautions to eliminate it while maintaining the essential maple and bourbon character.
