Bottle Releases For The Week Of January 3

On Wednesday, January 4, we welcome in the New Year with the release of a beer in remembrance of Damon! 

Port Damon

375ml, $20 per bottle, 1 bottle limit per person (credit card and matching ID required, please see our bottle release policy).

Port Damon is an imperial stout aged in port barrels.  

Damon (1993 - 2004).  The time spent with loved ones, now lost, seems to affect our mind and body perpetually; memories happen upon us, unsuspectingly, and bring about tears of fond remembrance.  Damon was our brother--devout and patient in an age of busyness and distraction.  In his honor, we crafted and conditioned this imperial stout in port barrels for more than 2 years.  We still reflect, daily, upon our Damon and his scruffy chin of grey--of his loyalty and his love.

Retail hours are Wednesday - Saturday, from 12pm - 5pm...

Fundraiser for Michaud Family

 

Our neighbors Leslie and Jeremy Michaud suffered a catastrophic fire at their home on December 10. Leslie, Jeremy and their four young sons lost most of their personal and household belongings. Leslie and Jeremy, with Jeremy's parents and brothers, operate a dairy farm and creamery producing ice cream, milk and yogurt in nearby East Hardwick, Vt.


This GoFundMe campaign aims to help the family replace clothing, shoes, winter gear, boots, miscellaneous household necessities, as well as providing for Christmas presents for the boys.

If you can help, please visit https://www.gofundme.com/leslie-jeremy-michaud-house-fire for more information.

Hill Farmstead will donate the entirety of this month's retail shop charitable contributions towards the Michaud family's rebuilding efforts.

Thank you for your time.

Phenomenology of Spirit was our first collaborative saison--originally conceived and brewed in 2010 with friends from Tired Hands, McKenzie, and our sister brewery, Grassroots Brewing, formerly located in Denmark.  This unique offering was primary fermented and aged in French oak wine barrels along with multiple strains of wild yeast and our resident microflora.

For each batch, we employ uniquely different processes and ingredients.  This particular batch was aged for an extended period of time in wine barrels and has undergone an extended period of bottle conditioning.

Bottle Releases For The Week Of Dec. 7, 2016

Wednesday, December 7, Release Update:


Aaron
500ml, $22 per bottle, 2 bottle limit per person (credit card and matching ID required, please see our bottle release policy).

Aaron is our barleywine-style ale aged in bourbon barrels. Aaron A. Hill (1785 - 1869) was our great-great-great grandfather who operated the original tavern in North Greensboro—an industrious, inventive and indomitable figure in the community.  The Hill Farmstead Brewery logo is based upon that tavern's original sign.  In his honor, we crafted this barleywine, which has rested, unhurriedly and undisturbed, for over 2 years in bourbon barrels from some of our favorite distilleries, absorbing the essence of its surroundings and history.

Due to a scheduling change, we will release Leaves of Grass: 9/16/2016!
375ml, $8 per bottle, 1 bottle limit per person (credit card and matching ID required, please see our bottle release policy).

Brewed on Sept. 16, 2016, this Farmstead® ale was brewed with wheat, hibiscus, sour candy and fermented entirely in oak.

Leaves of Grass represents our brewery's collective pursuit to create, explore and challenge. For each batch, we employ uniquely different processes and ingredients, all of which further our understanding of the art and science of brewing.

We will also release Florence this week.
750ml, $10.

Florence is our Farmstead® wheat ale, crafted from American malted barley, organic Vermont wheat, European and American hops, our distinctive farmhouse yeast and water from our well. It is unfiltered and naturally carbonated.

We are open Wednesday - Saturday, from 12 p.m. - 5 p.m. in our retail shop.
