Bottle Release For The Week Of Sept. 19, 2018!

On Weds., Sept., 19, we will release a new beer: Florence Puncheon!

Florence (1915-1967) was our grandfather’s sister, and Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to her and her 13 siblings. In her honor, we craft this wheat Farmstead® ale from American malted barley, organic Vermont wheat, European and American hops, our distinctive farmhouse yeast and water from our well.

This version of Florence was aged for many months in our puncheons—not quite Florence, not quite Flora, but magical all the same. Unfiltered and naturally carbonated.

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

We will also have fresh cans of Society & Solitude #8 and Karma Emulsion, along with loads of other cans and bottle offerings! Visit our retail page for updated information.

Farm to Fire Pizza will join us this week as our food vendor!

Note about our new glassware: The response to the new glassware has been overwhelming and great! Unfortunately, we have sold out for the moment, but they will return. We're awaiting our next shipment, which has been delayed by supply issues; we anticipate they will be available again just before Thanksgiving. Thanks for your patience!


Updates for the Week Of Sept. 12, 2018

UPDATE:We have temporarily sold out of these glasses. The response was overwhelming, so thank you! We have more on order, and hope to have them back in stock in November.

The brand new 450ml etched stemware arrived today! Available beginning Wednesday in the retail shop. $12 each. 

We'll also have fresh cans of Society & Solitude #7 available, along with a full slate of offerings (complete list HERE).

Caja Madera joins us this week for some tasty tacos and more.



Bottle Release For The Week Of Sept. 5, 2018!

On Weds., Sept., 5, we are pleased to release a new batch of our bourbon barrel-aged barleywine, Aaron!

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 two years in bourbon barrels from some of our favorite distilleries, absorbing the essence of its surroundings and history.

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


UPDATE: We will also release a new batch of Nordic Saison!


We will also offer fresh cans of Society & Solitude #6 as well as a brand new iteration of Difference & Repetition: Enigma, Mosaic®, and Simcoe®!

Visit our retail page for updated offerings in draft, bottles, cans and more.

Bottle Release For The Week Of August 29, 2018!

In November of 2015, our friends Wayne, Joey, Justin and Geiger from Cigar City Brewing visited us. They shared a number of special Cigar City beers with us and our guests, and we brewed two different beers. In 2016, we released the first of those projects, a Belgian-inspired brown ale.

On Weds., 29 August, we will release the second beer from that visit!

Works of Love: Cigar City 2015

A wort consisting of American malted barley, wheat, oats, and hops was rested for 48 hours in the open late fall air in our coolship, and then inoculated with lager yeast. After fermentation, the beer was transferred to French oak barrels for nearly 14 months. After extended bottle conditioning, this beer is now ready.

Please note that this beer is highly carbonated; therefore, we recommend serving this beer around 40ºF/4ºC.

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

We will also offer fresh cans of Dharma Bum and Society & Solitude #5! Visit our retail page for updated offerings in draft, bottles, cans and more.



Special Thursday Tapping: Poetica 1!

For those of you joining us Thursday, 23 August, we'll be tapping a special keg of the original batch of Poetica 1! We'll pour it until it's gone. 

See you soon!
