Bottle Release For The Week Of Sept. 27, 2017

On Weds., September 27, we will release a new batch of Barrel-Aged Fear & Trembling.

Fear and Trembling is a Baltic porter brewed with malt that was hand-smoked over a blend of native woods. Originally conceived as a collaboration in our first month of operations with our former colleague, Anders Kissmeyer, this version is fermented in the traditional way, with lager yeast, and aged in both wine and bourbon barrels before bottle conditioning. As a student of philosophy and former resident of Copenhagen, it seemed fitting to name our first collaboration (April 2010) after Denmark's great thinker: Søren Kierkegaard. Anders, Shaun, and Søren: All three contemplated absurdity, faith, and salvation while wandering the shores of the Baltic Sea...

"...continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling..."

Please visit our bottle release page on Sunday, Sept. 24, at noon,, for bottle limits and pricing information (credit card and matching ID required, please see our bottle release policy).


Bottle Release For The Week Of Sept. 13, 2017

On Weds., Sept 13, we will release Madness & Civilization #10!

Madness & Civilization #10 is comprised of Damon—aged in barrels from our favorite bourbon distilleries for over 2 years—and 2-year old barrel-aged Everett, along with a small portion of Genealogy of Morals aged for 27 months in rye whiskey barrels. The blend has been bottle conditioned for 6 months and is now ready for release. 

Madness & Civilization is a panorama of our barrel aging program—oak-aged beers that emerge from their individual silences to find structure and voice as a unified composition. This is the result of an unpredictable state of permanent happenstance—a dialogue with our evolving approach to blending that challenges convention and circumstance.

Bottle Release For The Week Of Aug. 30 and Reminder!

Retail hours for the coming week are Wednesday - Friday, 12 p.m. - 5 p.m. We are closed Saturday, Sept. 2nd for a multitude of reasons! Thank you for your understanding. 
Please Note: We are also closed Saturday, Oct. 7th.

On Wednesday, August 30, we are pleased to release Civil Disobedience 21.

Civil Disobedience, our nonviolent protest against the homogenization of flavor, comes in the form of a spontaneous, circumstantial and unpredicted series of beer releases. We relinquish control in favor of an anarchistic collaboration of microbial activity. This is the expression of our conscience, our opposition to oppression and an act of creative freedom.

Civil Disobedience 21 is composed of beers from a diversity of barrels ranging from 10 to 25 months of age—including Anna, Elaborative 4 and a mélange of Leaves of Grass—then bottle conditioned for over 10 months, resulting in a delicate yet complex beer that represents its individual elements as a seamless panorama.

Please visit our bottle release page,, for bottle limits and pricing information (credit card and matching ID required for this bottle).

Travel and Arrival

Please arrive to the event via Route 16 to Taylor Road, Jaffin Flats and Hill Road. This will help us keep the traffic flowing in one direction on Hill Road and simplify drop offs. If you travel into Greensboro village first, please take East Street, Cemetery Ridge, Garvin Hill Road to Jaffin Flats and then Hill Road

If your Designated Driver is staying for the event, you'll be directed past the brewery to the parking area where you can park and walk back up to the entry line. The entry line this year will be first parking area along the road near the sign (see diagram below). 

If you are being dropped off by a car service or van/bus that is NOT staying on site, the drop off point is the second parking area on the right (top of the hill before the brewery). You MUST be verified by one of our volunteers before being allowed to enter. One of our volunteers must visually confirm your drop off, and they will check your ticket and band you at that point. If you are not verified, we can not let you in.

Those of you coming on one of the two charter buses already have your drop off arranged.

Raffle Time!

One again, we'll be raffling off some amazing items, all to benefit Four Seasons of Early Learning, a Greensboro, Vt., based non-profit organization that benefits the children of our local community. So, bring lots of cash!
