Please accept our deepest apologies for any inconvenience, and thank you for your understanding.

Bottle Release for the Week of May 4, 2016

On Weds., May 4, we're excited to release Art.

Each 750ml bottle is $40 with a limit of 1 bottle per person. Due to overwhelming response and in the interest of ensuring that Art is available throughout the retail week for our guests, we will reduce the limit to two bottles per person. Thank you for your understanding!

Art is the wine barrel-fermented and aged version of Arthur (1922-2005), our grandfather's youngest brother as well as the name of our rustic farmstead ale. In honor of Arthur, we mindfully blend his namesake beer from French oak wine barrels that have been aged and conditioned for between 1 and 3 years. This is the standard that reflects, redefines and guides the progressive vision for Hill Farmstead.


Bottle Releases for the Week of April 27, 2016

On Weds., April 27, we'll release two beers!

Genealogy of Morals

Each 500ml bottle is $20 with a limit of 3 bottles per person.

Genealogy of Morals, the name of one of our most coveted Nietzschean narratives, also happens to be one of our barrel-aged imperial stouts. We brewed this wheat imperial stout, added a touch of coffee, and aged it in a selection of bourbon barrels from our favorite distillers. Aged 24 months in these barrels, and many months of bottle conditioning, the beer is ready for release.

Farmer Wave

Each 750ml bottles is $10 with a limit of 4 bottles per person.

Saison brewed with oats, lime zest, lime juice and salt. Brewed and bottled at Hill Farmstead for Good Life Provisions LLC.

Hugs feel great. But when you find yourself behind the wheel of a 4,000lb truck rumbling over the gravel, hugging each person you pass just isn't in the cards. So you raise your finger off the wheel just enough to acknowledge your neighbor. The Farm Wave is a completely legitimate and wholly appreciated acknowledgement. It really is the least you can do to recognize that fleeting moment you share with another person. It is simple, but meaningful.

Farmer Wave exists as its own sort of acknowledgement. The brewing brought together friends separated by the evolution of life. The process was a reason to reunite and the product is a gesture from one friend to another. There are simple ways we can share our worlds with each other. 

Farmer Wave is one of those ways.


Bottle Release for the Week of April 20, 2016


On Weds., April 20, we'll release Works of Love: Cigar City Brewing.

Each 375ml bottle is $15 with a limit of 2 bottles per person.

In November of 2015, our friends Wayne, Joey, Justin and Geiger from Cigar City Brewing visited us, and joined us in a collaborative brew day on our small system, crafting a beautiful, tart, Belgian-inspired brown ale, which was fermented entirely in an oak tank and then conditioned in wine barrels.



Bottle Release for the Week of April 13, 2016

On Weds., April 13, we'll release Works of Love: Brasserie Thiriez.

Each 375ml bottle is $15 with a limit of 2 bottles per person.

In July of 2015, our dear friends Daniel Thiriez and Marielle Paquet of Brasserie Thiriez joined us at the brewery, so Shaun and Daniel brewed a barrel-fermented wheat and oat ale on the small system. This edition of Works of Love aged and matured over the course of six months in oak barrels, developing into an elegant, sophisticated representation of the friendship and respect shared between our two breweries.
