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).

Important Updates for FoFA2017 Attendees!

For all of you joining us Saturday, here are a few things to keep in mind:

Unfortunately, it looks like a good chance of rain, so plan accordingly!

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!

Gates Open at 11:30

Last call is 3:50 p.m.

We look forward to seeing you all here!

Bottle Release For The Week Of July 19!

This coming Weds., July 19, we're pleased to release a new batch of our dark Farmstead® ale, Edith!

Edith (1897-1992) 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, this dark Farmstead® ale is crafted from American malted barley, German roasted malts, European hops, our farmhouse yeast, and water from our well. The result is a complex yet approachable melange of light roast flavors combined with a refreshing, elegant tartness, characteristic of our Farmstead® ales. Unfiltered and naturally carbonated, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Edith.

Please visit our bottle release page,, for bottle limits and pricing information.


Bottle Release For The Week Of July 12!

This coming Weds., July 12, we're excited to premiere Mary in 500ml bottles!

Mary (1875-1963) was Edward’s mother and our great-grandmother; Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to her and her many children. In her honor, we brew this German-style pilsner with German pilsner malt, our favorite German hops, classic German lager yeast and water from our well. Unfiltered and naturally carbonated, this is the lager that I dream to have shared with Mary.

Keep cold, drink fresh!

Please visit our bottle release page,, for bottle limits and pricing information.

Also on Weds., in our bottle shop during normal retail hours, we'll release a final block of tickets for our August 5th Festival of Farmhouse Ales 2017! A set amount of tickets will be made available each day this week, Weds. through Saturday. Complete information for the event can be found at
