Hill Farmstead Named Best Brewery in the World for 2017

Hill Farmstead Brewery has been named Best Brewery in the World for the year 2017, as well as Best Brewery in the United States and Vermont, by RateBeer, the world’s largest, most popular beer review and rating website. This is the fourth year in a row and the fifth time in the past six 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. Eight of its beers were included in the top 100 beers in the world by RateBeer, and six of its beers were honored in the Top 50 New Releases in the World.  In addition, its brewery taproom was once again named Best Brewer Taproom in Vermont. Twenty-two of its beers were honored with medals, including eight Gold Medals.

The RateBeer awards are determined solely by the reviews of RateBeer’s millions of active members. RateBeer is home to the most experienced beer critics in the world with more than 400 master beer tasters having over 4,000 documented beer reviews. RateBeer is also home to countless certified cicerones, GABF, GBBF and BJCP judges.

Hill Farmstead Brewery continues to be extraordinarily grateful for the overwhelmingly positive support of the beer community, its members and our loyal fans. We look forward to continuing our work of providing the best beer in the world.

Thank you to RateBeer and its users, but especially our loyal and supportive friends who visit us—both close to home and from around the world! We're honored and humbled to have been named Best Brewer in the World for 2017, amongst other amazing awards.

Greensboro's not the middle of nowhere—it's the middle of everything to us, and we thank you. Cheers!

Also, congratulations to so many of our friends in the beer world who were also rightfully honored. We raise a toast to you all!

Bottle Release For The Week Of Jan. 31, 2018!

On Weds., January 31, we're pleased to release a new entry in our series of Flora variants with locally provided fruits: Flora aged on blueberries, black currants, raspberries and cherries. Flora is the wine barrel-aged version of Florence (1915-1967), our grandfather's sister as well as the name of our Farmstead® wheat ale. Only a few barrels were selected, and that beer was aged further on a blend of fresh, hand-picked berries from Greensboro, East Hardwick, and Elmore.

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).

Bottle Release For The Week Of Jan. 24, 2018!

Eleventh in our ongoing series of experimental stout blends, this version of Madness and Civilization is constructed with a few barrels of two-year-old Damon (brewed with honey) and a larger quantity of an imperial stout brewed in honor of batch 1,000. Batch 1,000 (or 1k, as we refer to it), is a 33º American-style sweet imperial stout that spent more than a year in bourbon barrels. The beers were then married on organic Ecuadorian cacao nibs and organic Ethiopian coffee beans before packaging. After a satisfactory period of bottle conditioning, the beer is ready for release.

Fresh Double Citra in Cans, Jan. 24, 2018!

Fresh off the line: Double Citra!

Brewed with Citra, more Citra and, yet, even more Citra, all from the newest hops we've been showcasing in Citra IPA and Society & Solitude #8! Available in the retail shop beginning Wednesday, January 24.

Also, this is Andy. He's one of the hardest working, nicest guys you're likely to meet. He's a lifelong Northeast Kingdom resident, and we're lucky to have him in our family. Not only does he work the line sometimes, he delivers most of the beer you drink on draft in Vermont, is an expert Nerf gun marksman (thanks to his kids), and can skateboard. Multitalented, indeed!

Thanks!

Bottle Release For The Week Of Jan. 17, 2017!

We'll release the newest iteration of Civil Disobedience on Wednesday, January 17!

Civil Disobedience #22 is comprised of various vintages of Florence and Arthur, aged in wine barrels for up to 18 months and then bottle conditioned for an extended period, totaling more than one year, to allow for its full maturation and development.

Civil Disobedience is our blended barrel aged series of Farmstead® ales, each one a unique union of carefully selected beers chosen by our brewers to weave often disparate threads into a picture far greater than its individual elements.  

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

Fresh Society & Solitude #8 in Cans, Jan. 10, 2018!

Fresh off the canning line: Society and Solitude #8!

Brewed with Simcoe, Citra and Mosaic hops—if you've had a chance to enjoy the recent Citra IPA and Mosaic IPA, this double IPA features those new batches of hops! Available in the retail shop this week during regular hours (see site Tuesday for details).

Also, this is Kyle. He's a little shy but incredibly "cansome" (his word, not ours, but we like it, and he's not wrong). He came to us from Indiana by way of Denmark, for which we're grateful. Appreciate Kyle's hard work like we do: come on out and enjoy this can he lovingly helped package (or one very much like it in a 6-pack)!
