Farmstead® Ale Aged in Oak Barrels
Samuel Hill (1820-1899) was our great-great-uncle and brother of Ephraim. He served in the Union army at the Battle of Gettysburg. An early agricultural innovator, he held several patents for milk cooling and cream separation. He moved a house, midwinter, with horses from North Greensboro to Greensboro Village and also helped build the first road from Greensboro to Greensboro Bend. In an attempt to honor this intrepid relative, we have crafted a base of buckwheat, spelt and Vermont wildflower honey. Following shifting seasons of rest in wine barrels and months of bottle conditioning, we are finally able to present a beer worthy of Samuel’s name.
