We are no longer requiring reservations for our Taproom! Come on in!
Once again, we are happy to offer our grounds and tasting room for visitors who are joining us.
For those wishing to plan in advance, and desiring to have a dedicated seating option, we have reserved a portion of our limited indoor space for guests who wish to ensure they have the ability to have a table when they visit the taproom. This system allows us to offer our limited seating during the colder months equitably and eliminates the need to “line up early” to try to grab a seat!
Those wishing to secure seats in advance can choose either to reserve a table from 12:00 - 2:00 p.m. or 2:30 - 4:30 p.m. We still offer standing tables and limited seating for our visitors who are joining us.
Visit https://www.exploretock.com/hillfarmsteadbrewery if you are planning ahead and would like to reserve a table.
We look forward to greeting you and pouring our beers.
The charitable recipients for the month of December are...
AWARE and Umbrella
AWARE, a non-profit organization established in 1984, is dedicated to resolving the causes and effects of domestic violence and sexual assault in the greater Hardwick area. AWARE provides services year-round, 24 hours a day, governed by a volunteer board of directors, utilizing paid employees and numerous volunteers. AWARE serves the towns of Cabot, Craftsbury, Greensboro, Hardwick, Stannard, Walden, and Woodbury.
Umbrella’s mission is to cultivate a Northeast Kingdom where all people thrive free from abuse and oppression. We believe that oppression and the systemic abuse of power are at the root of domestic and sexual violence, stalking, teen dating violence, human trafficking, as well as violence related to gender or sexual orientation – which in total we characterize as gender-based violence. We seek to embody a world where those who have been disempowered by poverty, discrimination, and other obstacles are able to live peaceful, self-directed lives.
