Festival of Farmhouse Ales

August 3, 2019


Location

Hill Farmstead Brewery
403 Hill Road, Greensboro Bend, Vt. 05842


Details

For this year’s event, we will highlight a few incredibly special people who influenced our journey during the years preceding the existence of Hill Farmstead Brewery. We have invited brewers who provided inspiration during the formative period between 2005 and 2009—who we feel exemplify the Old World and New World. Our small brewery sits nearly at the midpoint between Belgium and California—a juxtaposition that, in so many ways, mirrors our sense of place with farmhouse ales and more.

This year we are pleased to present Pierre-Alex and Marie-Nöel Carlier of Brasserie de Blaugies; Tomme Arthur of The Lost Abbey Brewing Company; and Vinnie and Natalie Cilurzo of Russian River Brewing. Also joining us will be our friends from Shelton Brothers Imports, who will be sharing a special selection of Drie Fonteinen with our guests.

Once again, we will offer a package that includes a tasting glass, beer samples, designated driver entry (see note below) and music. Food is not included. There will be no camping and, while we certainly love all animals, unfortunately, dogs are not allowed. Also, please note that this is a 21 and above only event.

Designated Drivers

We will again require designated drivers for all attendees. Because of the move to a digital ticket, designated drivers will not receive an individual physical ticket. Each ticket purchase 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). Each DD will be provided ONE voucher good for food redemption from the onsite vendors up to $8 in value.
