Beyond Good and Evil

 

Beyond Good and Evil is one of Nietzsche’s most powerful works, challenging conventional wisdom and urging us transcend good and evil while confronting the very nature of knowledge. This challenge both informs and inspires our work.

Beyond Good and Evil is also the name of our bourbon barrel-aged maple imperial sweet stout. Brewed in May of 2012, we crafted this beer with a touch of Vermont maple syrup and then allowed it to rest quietly and contentedly in hand-selected bourbon barrels for over 18 months.

Fear & Trembling: Blend

Fear and Trembling is Hill Farmstead’s first collaboration – a Baltic Porter brewed with malt that was hand smoked over maple wood by our Danish friend, and former colleague, Anders Kissmeyer. This bottled version was blended from beer aged in both American Oak Cabernet barrels and Bourbon barrels. As a student of philosophy and former resident of Copenhagen, it is fitting that our brewer named our first collaboration after Denmark’s great thinker: Søren Kierkegaard. All three contemplated absurdity, faith, and salvation while wandering the shores of the Baltic Sea…

“…continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling…”

Fear & Trembling: Smoked Baltic Porter

Fear and Trembling was Hill Farmstead’s first collaboration – a Baltic Porter brewed with malt that was hand smoked over maple wood by our Danish friend, and former colleague, Anders Kissmeyer. This version was a rebrew of Batch #4 in our brewery...and was aged for many weeks in stainless steel.  As a student of philosophy and former resident of Copenhagen, it is fitting that our brewer named our first collaboration after Denmark’s great thinker: Søren Kierkegaard. All three contemplated absurdity, faith, and salvation while wandering the shores of the Baltic Sea…

“…continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling…”

Life Without Principle #1

Life Without Principle #1 (we are big fans of Thoreau!) is the first in a series of Citrus inspired American Style Blonde Ales. #1 is brewed with 200 ICUS of Valencia Orange and complemented by several American hop varieties. The inaugural release was brewed with the help of our good friend Luc "Bim" Lafontaine, formerly of Dieu Du Ciel! in Montreal and now en route to Japan to open his new brewery.

Life Without Principle #2

Life Without Principle #2 is the second in our series of citrus inspired American blond ales. This one has been brewed with 280 ICUs (International Citrus Units) of fresh, amazingly aromatic Meyer lemons. Weighing in at 4.9% abv, this is extremely sessionable, refreshing.
