Wine Enthusiast 40 Under 40

International publication Wine Enthusiast has announced its Top 40 Under 40 Tastemakers of 2018, highlighting innovators who are shaping the future of wine, beer and spirits.

We are pleased to announce that amongst the honorees for 2018 is our very own Shaun E. Hill—founder, owner and brewer here at Hill Farmstead Brewery.

Shaun has spent his professional career in pursuit of beer's pinnacle expressions, regardless of style. For more than a decade, this determined endeavor towards elegance, sophistication and tasteful simplicity has resulted in many of the most highly regarded, most sought after, and frequently lauded beverages amongst enthusiasts in both the wine and beer audience.

Shaun founded Hill Farmstead Brewery in 2010 on his family's ancestral land, making him the 7th continuous generation to make productive use of these the rolling hills of Greensboro Bend, tucked away within Vermont's beautiful Northeast Kingdom—our middle of everything.

Guided by Shaun's uncompromising vision, the brewery has become a leader and trendsetter in the brewing world—respecting the past; taking cues and inspiration from the wine and spirit communities; and refining and shaping the results to showcase the best that beer can become in the future and to help it ascend to it's rightful equal footing alongside wine and spirits.

Residency, Sante Adairius and More!

Hello Everyone!

Please join us on Wednesday, August 8th, at 11:30 a.m. for the public debut of our Tim Clifford Residency Beers! These will only be available for onsite consumption. Four in total, these beers were brewed in August of 2016 by Shaun and Tim during an intensive 2-week period of creativity and collaboration.  Each beer was brewed on our 5 hectoliter brewhouse and fermented and aged entirely in wine barrels.  

  • Residency 1
    Farmstead® ale brewed with old world pilsner malt and aged in wine barrels
  • Residency 2
    Farmstead® ale brewed with six-row malted barley and aged in wine barrels
  • Residency 3
    Farmstead® ale in the style of a Grisette, brewed with wine barrel stave-smoked malt and aged in wine barrels
  • Residency 4
    Farmstead® ale aged in wine barrels with citrus fruit

We will also have bottled beers from Sante Adairius available for onsite enjoyment as well! The SARA family was kind enough to send us Bernice, Cellarman and Westly, as well as single cases each of 6th Anniversary and Matrices, to share with you all. 

Please note that Vermont state law limits each person to two glasses of beer at a time; as such, we are not able to provide flights or more than two beers at once. We do not, however, anticipate running out of these bottles during the week. Thanks for your understanding.

The Details!
To reach the brewery, directions are here; Please approach the brewery via Jaffin Flats and Hill Road so that we can route traffic efficiently. Parking for attendees will be in the lower field, past the brewery on the right side. We will have volunteers and signage along the road to provide guidance. If you are coming early to visit the retail shop before the event, you may park in the lot directly across from the brewery and then move your car once you've completed your purchases. Just let our parking attendants know when you approach!

Designated Driver Drop-Offs
If you are being dropped off for the event, the drop-off area will be located along the side of the road near the food vendors. We will have volunteers who will confirm your drop-off and mark your ticket so that the front gate staff can confirm your status. 

Gates open at 11 a.m.; the queue for entry will be located along the road in the parking area just ahead of the main parking lot. Volunteers will be on hand to guide you in the right direction, check IDs and begin the process. We'll have multiple general admission lines at the white entry tent located in our main parking area to expedite the process. Please have your ID and ticket ready, as well as your designated driver with you, if they are entering with you. For those of you using a transportation service or otherwise being dropped off, see above.

Once again, we will have a fundraising table with a bottle raffle. The fundraiser will feature special bottles from our personal beer cellar. Raffle tickets are $5 (cash only!). Please bring plenty of extra cash, buy plenty of tickets, (with luck) win some great bottles, and—most importantly—help us support the children of our immediate community. As previous attendees can attest, it's worth bringing your cash!

Thanks and we'll see you in a few weeks—fingers crossed for plenty of sunshine!
