Hill Farmstead Brewery Named Best Brewery in the World

Greensboro Bend, Vt. (January 28, 2019) - Hill Farmstead Brewery has been named Best Brewery in the World for the year 2018, as well as Best Brewery in the United States and Vermont, by RateBeer, the world’s largest, most popular beer review and rating website. Awards were announced January 28.

This is the fifth year in a row and the sixth time in the past seven years that the brewery has been honored as Best Brewery in the World, United States and Vermont. 

The brewery’s Aaron, a barrel-aged barleywine style ale, was honored as Best Beer for Vermont, and three of its beers were included in the top 100 beers in the world by RateBeer.  In addition, its brewery taproom was once again named Best Brewer Taproom in Vermont. Sixteen of its beers were honored with medals—seven Gold Medals.

The entire Hill Farmstead Brewery organization is extraordinarily grateful for the overwhelmingly positive support of the beer community, RateBeer’s members, and, most importantly, our valued guests both near and far. This continued recognition serves as an invigorating reminder to us that the principles we hold most dear continue to be held in high regard by the RateBeer community.

Bottle Release For January 30, 2019

On Weds., January 30, we will release a special rum barrel-aged variant of our wheat imperial stout, Genealogy of Morals, with Coffee Collective Akmel Nuri.

As part of our single origin coffee experiments, we aged the beer for more than 16 months in Privateer Rum barrels then further conditioned the beer atop Akmel Nuri's organic Ethiopian coffee beans sourced and roasted by The Coffee Collective in Copenhagen. These friends long ago changed our world-view as to what coffee could be and continue to deeply influence us here at Hill Farmstead.

Please visit our bottle release page, http://hillfarmstead.com/bottle-release, for bottle limits and pricing information (credit card and matching ID required for this bottle).

We will also have fresh cans of Double Nelson, along with a great selection of other cans and bottle offerings. Visit our retail page for updated information.

Bottle Release For January 23, 2019

This coming Weds., January 23, we will release a new 750ml batch of Juicy, our dry-hopped Farmstead® ale.

Juicy is inspired by our love for New Zealand—the adventures had therein, and the journeys grown from without. Our love for the landscape, the agriculture, and the spirited reflection of its inhabitants has led to the vision of what lies before you. After 10 months conditioning in wine barrels with our resident microflora, this dry-hopped Farmstead® ale is now ready to be enjoyed.

Please visit our bottle release page, http://hillfarmstead.com/bottle-release, for bottle limits and pricing information (credit card and matching ID required for this bottle).

Onsite Bottle Release for January 16, 2019

On Weds., January 16, we will release a new Flora variant for onsite enjoyment only, this one with blackberries.

Flora is the wine barrel-aged version of Florence, our grandfather's sister as well as the name of our Farmstead® wheat ale. We selected a single barrel of Flora and aged it atop fresh, hand-picked local blackberries from our neighboring town of Glover.

Please note: this beer will only be available for enjoyment onsite in our tasting room, not for take away.

Visit our retail page for complete information and retail offerings.

Bottle Release For January 9, 2019

For this coming Weds., January 9, we will release a new batch of Beyond Good and Evil.

Beyond Good and Evil is one of Nietzsche’s most powerful works, challenging convention, 'wisdom' and 'morality;' urging us to transcend the restrictive, bounded concepts of good and evil; and confronting the relative nature of 'knowledge.' This both informs and inspires our work.

Beyond Good and Evil is also the name of our bourbon barrel-aged maple imperial stout. Brewed in January of 2017, we crafted this beer with malted wheat and Vermont maple syrup, then conditioned it in bourbon barrels from a variety of our favorite distilleries for nearly two years.

Please visit our bottle release page, http://hillfarmstead.com/bottle-release, for bottle limits and pricing information (credit card and matching ID required for this bottle).

Visit our retail page for complete information and retail offerings, including fresh cans of Double Citra to go.
