Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup! April 29, 2014

Hi all,

We will release our bourbon barrel aged maple syrup during normal retail hours (12 - 5 p.m.) on Weds., April 29, 2014. This syrup is from Peck Family Farm in East Montpelier, Vt. and was aged in select bourbon barrels for several months before being packaged in 750ml resealable flip-top bottles.

We only have available a small amount of each, so we are limiting purchases to 1 bottle per household, either Fancy or Amber (not one of each). We hope that in doing so, we'll be able to spread around the love so that as many people as possible can enjoy this rare treat!

Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup Grade A: Golden Color with Delicate Flavor (formerly known as Fancy) - 750ml resealable bottle. $50

Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup: Grade A: Amber Color with Rich Flavor (formerly known as Grade A Medium Amber) - 750ml resealable bottle. $40





Growler Policy Update for Our Retail Shop

In an effort to streamline and speed up our retail experience (which as many of you may have noticed now includes a fancy digital point of sale system!), we will be implementing the following growler policy, effective April 16:

• There is a three (3) refillable container limit per person per trip through the line. This is any combination growler of sizes, not by liters (i.e., three 2 liter, three 750ml, two 2L and one 750ml, etc.).

• We will fill 750ml and 2L growlers, which does include growlers from other breweries of that size.

• We will fill 64 oz. screw-top brown glass growlers at the 2L price.

• We will no longer fill 32 oz., 1 liter or 500ml growlers.

• No large, German style growlers with the metal handles

• No metal growlers

• Dark glass growlers only.

• If you are bringing screw-top style growlers, you must bring your own caps.

Thanks for your understanding!


We're in the Congressional Record!

Sen. Patrick J. Leahy

Mr. President, Vermont is home to hundreds of world-class small businesses, each of which dots our economic landscape with their unique and often award-winning offerings. Our reputation for quality has made the "Vermont brand" one that is valued and sought after by consumers across the Nation--and increasingly also across the globe. One burgeoning industry in Vermont is that of craft beer. In fact, the State is becoming almost as well known for its craft beers as it is for its maple syrup.

One such successful small brewery, the Hill Farmstead Brewery, was featured in the January 18, 2014, edition of the New York Times. After a planned expansion next year, the brewery's owner, Shaun Hill, plans to cap production at 150,000 gallons per year. His successful business model, and highly sought after brew, as the article states, "offers lessons in how limiting production can bring success."

Vermont's small-State appeal attracts business owners large and small. The Hill Farmstead Brewery is just one example of the successes Vermont's economy boast. I ask unanimous consent that a copy of "Craft Beer, the (Very) Limited Edition," from the January 18 New York Times be printed in the Record.



Anniversary and Memorial Day Weekend

As many of you know by now, we will not be holding our anniversary celebration here at the brewery because of ongoing construction. However, we can’t let the year go by without some celebration!

So, we invite you to join us for two nights of beer, food and friendship!
Memorial Day Weekend 2014
Friday, May 23, 2014
Parker Pie Co.
West Glover, Vt.
Saturday, May 24, 2014
Waterbury Wide: Blackback, Prohibition Pig  & The Reservoir, with each location sporting a different selection but all equally cool!
All four venues will have at least a dozen taps flowing, with some pouring up to 24 or more of our beers, including some amazing vintage Hill Farmstead beers for each location, plus special guest kegs, collaboration beers and much more.

These are NOT ticketed events, nor is Hill Farmstead Brewery coordinating the events. We are collaborating with our friends to thank everyone for another amazing year, spread the love and, ultimately, celebrate with you all.

Specific details from each location will be available soon, including tap lists. Be patient and all will be revealed!

The Hill Farmstead Retail shop WILL be open its normal hours that week, including Saturday, too!

So, mark your calendars, book your rooms and bring some sunshine!



4th Anniversary Update

Due to ongoing construction, we will not be holding our anniversary celebration at the brewery in May, as we have previously. There's just no way the site will be in any condition to host hundreds of people by then. We apologize, and thanks for your understanding. 

However, stay tuned for information about what we do have planned in Memorial Day weekend to celebrate, though... if you've already planned travel to Vermont, you'll not be disappointed!




Our Gratitude for a Graceful Telling

Mike over at Good Beer Hunting visited us last year to chat, shoot pictures and hang out. Recently, he posted what we consider one of the best written, most thoughtful presentations of what we do, who we are and why we do what we do. 

Thanks, Mike. Bravo.

Also, the photography is spectacular! We encourage you to check it out.
