Our 10th Anniversary

A Decade in the Making

As we move through our tenth year of Hill Farmstead Brewery, we find ourselves looking back, looking around, and—most importantly—looking forward.

Here, you'll find information about events; answers to questions; thoughtful and thought-provoking (we hope) writings; and visual snapshots of then and now.

To everyone who has traveled with us along this journey, we thank you... and look forward to reminiscing, sharing time, and creating new memories.



Yes, physical tickets purchased onsite are not assigned, and tickets purchased online are transferrable via the Universe website only (account required). For questions related to transferring tickets, please visit

No, while we certainly love all animals, unfortunately, dogs, cats, or other non-humanoid friends are not allowed.

No, due to liability concerns, we can’t allow overnight guests tenting, camping, or otherwise.

We require designated drivers for all attendees for a number of reasons, and have done so for the last five years or so with great success. Safety first!

Designated drivers will not receive an individual physical ticket. Each event ticket purchase (1 or 2) )allows entry of one DD per pair or single ticket purchased. Each DD will have access to free non-alcoholic beverages (kombucha, seltzer, etc.), one voucher good to redeem with our food vendors (up to $8 value) and event entry to enjoy the music and (we hope!) wonderful weather.

Carpooling and DD-sharing is encouraged, especially for those of you coming from great distances.

Attendees MUST either enter with their designated driver or be validated by one of our volunteers at the entry if being dropped off by a commercial transport service (taxi, bus, etc.); attendees without a designated driver or failing to be properly validated at the entrance will not be admitted (no exceptions).

This is a beer festival and 21 and over only for admission. That being said, of course babies and small children under 5 are allowed on the grounds with their parent(s).

As of right now, we are planning to continue the tradition of a casual, informal weeklong celebration during regular retail hours. Any changes, of course, will be posted to our social media channels.

Short answer, no.

Long answer, because of the huge volume of traffic, narrow country roads, and liability, we can’t make exceptions to our Designated Driver requirement. Thanks for understanding!

We love to have live, local music during our events. Contact us at [email protected] with your band’s information, a link to where we can listen to your music. All music fees are agreed upon before events.
