Flora Cherry Release - June 3!

We are excited to announce the release of a new batch of Flora Cherry!

Available beginning Weds., June 3, during normal retail hours.

1 Bottle Per Person

$20, 375ml

Flora is the wine barrel aged version of Florence (1915-1967), our grandfather's sister as well as the name of our wheat farmhouse ale. Only a few barrels were selected and then further aged on a blend of fresh, hand picked Montmorency cherries. The result is a complex, elegant expression of the annual harvest.

We will also release a new batch of Arthur, our traditional farmstead ale! $10 per bottle, 750ml.

Flora Plum Release, Weds., May 6, 2015

On Weds., May 6, 2015, at 12 p.m., during normal retail hours, we will release Flora Plum. Bottles are $22 each with a limit of 2 bottles per person, 375ml (see updated special bottle release policy here).

Flora is the wine barrel aged version of Florence (1915-1967), our grandfather's sister as well as the name of our wheat farmhouse ale. Selected barrels were aged on a variety of hand-picked organic plums from Elmore Roots Nursery in Wolcott, Vt., for several months. The result is a vibrant, refined expression of both harvest and craft.

Summer Event Update—Anniversary & Festival of Farmhouse Ales

We've held off making any determination of the Anniversary Celebration this year, waiting for the snow to recede (finally!) so we could evaluate the grounds properly. Now that spring has arrived, it's clear that we won't be able to host our celebration at the brewery again this year, unfortunately. Too much work remains, and with Memorial Day weekend at its earliest point in the calendar, far too great a chance for a late blast of winter.

However, with the amazing success of last year's Waterbury events, once again we're turning to our friends at Blackback Pub, Prohibition Pig and The Reservoir to host a celebration on Saturday, May 23!

Not only that, we're bringing our friends at Farmhouse Tap & Grill and Three Penny Taproom into the mix for Friday, May 22!

 

Don't worry, we haven't forgotten about Parker Pie... 

To celebrate locally, we're teaming up with Parker Pie for a weeklong celebration from May 27 through May 30! 

Details on times, taplists and more will be updated as we get closer.

More information is posted here: www.hillfarmstead.com/anniversary

 

Also, we've locked in a date for our Festival of Farmhouse Ales, which WILL be held onsite this year (no snow in August, right?!). 

Mark your calendars for August 8 for a fine summer afternoon of great beer, great friends and *fingers crossed* great weather!

Details to follow, and stay tuned to www.hillfarmstead.com/fofa for updates.

 

And yes, retail is open normal hours during the anniversary week! Wednesday - Saturday, 12 - 5 p.m.
