New Retail Space Opening Weds., Dec. 11!

This coming Wednesday—December 11—will be an exciting day at Hill Farmstead Brewery. Our retail shop will open its doors at 12 p.m. in a new, bigger, brighter space! Those of you who have visited us in the last few months have seen the progress and have, in the last few weeks, walked through part of that new space.

We will also be releasing Port Barrel Damon that day. There is virtually no chance of running out of Port Barrel Damon on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or even Saturday. We have a really nice number of bottles for you, so don’t feel like you might miss out if you can’t be here Weds. 

In that spirit, we’d love to consider Wednesday sort of a “soft opening” for that space, so that we can get the bugs worked out and have the best experience possible for everyone.

In other words, friends: be gentle, pace yourselves, don’t worry.



Thanksgiving Week Hours

Hi all,

  • Open Weds. 12-5 as normal
  • Closed Thursday for Thanksgiving
  • Open Friday and Saturday 12-5 as normal.

Just a head's up on road conditions: 

Paved roads seem generally just wet and occasionally slushy around the area. The back roads are a little slick, but the local crews are out with sand.

So, if you're coming to visit us today, take your time and drive carefully.

Check for complete listing of what's on tap and on the shelf. 


Hill Farmstead + Parker Pie = Awesome

Join us November 16, 6 p.m., at Parker Pie Co. in West Glover, VT

Hill Farmstead Brewery settles in for an amazing evening with our friends at Parker Pie. A little fresh, a little vintage—a lot of reasons to find your way to West Glover, VT!
