Paying with plastic? Give your bank/card company a heads up!

We are very excited to start accepting cards today and want to make the process as smooth as possible for all of you.

To that end, we are asking for your help!  If you can call the number on the back of your credit/debit card and ask them to note your account with the following information it will ensure that your card swipe is authorized on the first try and without you having to call them from line/checkout:

  1. I will be traveling and using my card in Greensboro Bend, VT on the following days…
  2. I will be using my card at Hill Farmstead Brewery
  3. I may make several transactions at Hill Farmstead Brewery in the same day, or even the same hour
  4. You could also give them an idea of the figures you may spend or some maximum threshold (bigger $ amounts get flagged more often)

Cell service here can be spotty and we certainly want to keep the line moving and get everyone their beer ASAP so they can enjoy the rest of their day, so if you have the ability to call your card company before arriving we would genuinely appreciate it.

One other note: if you have a Chase card they sometimes will send you a text and an email asking you to authorize a transaction if it is flagged.  This happened to me at Torst/Luksus a few weeks ago and once I texted back to accept they were able to run the card.  Other card companies may do this as well.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide on the above, we appreciate it.  As the algorithms and computers at the card companies get used to us accepting cards and customer patterns this won’t be an issue, but we want to be proactive here in the early days and make things as comfortable as possible for all of you. 

If you have questions or concerns feel free to contact me: jim@hillfarmstead.com

Credit Cards! Now accepted at The Hill Farmstead Retail Shop.

We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting MasterCard, Visa and Discover cards for payment in our retail shop.  A few notes…

  1. This includes debit cards that have the aforementioned logos on them
  2. We will not be accepting American Express (or other cards not listed above)
  3. We will still be accepting cash
This is part of our ongoing efforts to improve the overall customer experience and reduce the waiting time in our shop.  Our entire staff spends many hours (often late at night) thinking about what we can do better.  We appreciate the feedback we get from many of you and your patience as Phase 2 construction progresses and we approach the occupation of our permanent retail shop.  

 

Thanks for supporting Hill Farmstead Brewery!

Coming Soon: Nordic Saison!

 

We are excited and proud to announce the upcoming release of our newest collaboration, Nordic Saison. This farmhouse ale was brewed at Hill Farmstead with our friend and mentor Anders Kissmeyer (Kissmeyer Beer & Brewing) and our longtime friend Will Meyers (Cambridge Brewing Co.). Inspired by our guests and their journeys, this beer was brewed with the resourcefulness and inventiveness of the Nordic tradition, as well as the creative spirit of its three architects. 

 

 

We will release this beer at Hill Farmstead in the next 2-3 weeks. Stay tuned for more information about the beer, the release and its creators!

 

 

Hill Farmstead Brewery in Greensboro, Vt., founded in 2010, is an award-winning brewery that draws on travel, friendship and a sense of place to craft its expressions of classic and new styles. Kissmeyer Beer and Brewing, launched in 2010 by Anders Kissmeyer after ten years at Nørrebro Bryghus, is a Denmark-based, award-winning, multifaceted brewing concern spearheading the Nordic beer movement. Cambridge Brewing Co., established in 1989 and the oldest brewpub in the greater Boston area, is an award-winning brewery known for its adventurous, creative and groundbreaking beers.

Festival of Farmhouse Ales 2014

Hi all,

Just a quick update that we're working hard to get all the details pulled together for this year's event, being held August 16th here at the brewery. We've lined up the music, the food and we're just hammering out the ticketing details.

We will be doing the ticket release through Ticket Alternative, much like last year with a multi-day sign up period online and then a random drawing of winners. The sign up window will be plenty of time for everyone to enter, and the drawing will follow shortly after that so winners can plan travel accordingly.

Sorry for the lateness, but so much has depended on the construction progress, as you can imagine. Thanks for your patience!

Bob
