16 June 2021 Curbside Retail Offerings
While it has alternately felt like mid-summer and late winter in the last month, it is most certainly still spring here in Vermont. As such, we mark the seasonal shift each year—as we have since 2011—with the release of E.
The moniker E. represents a number of concepts. First and foremost, it is for Edward (1917-2002), Shaun’s grandfather, as well as the name of the first beer brewed at the brewery on March 30, 2010. Secondly, brewing in Denmark revealed a European tradition of crafting Easter (Påske) beer, so in years past, E. has signified and marked Easter; although it arrives well after the holiday this year. Finally, and most integrally to us all here, E. optimistically embodies entelechy, the continued actualization of our potential through spirited effort and vision.
Thus, in honor of this multi-layered physical and symbolic representation, to the past and future emprises here on Hill Road, we offer this distinctive beer: Edward fermented with our Farmstead® yeast; conditioned for nearly a year in oak barrels; dry-hopped with Amarillo®, Galaxy™, and Simcoe®; and bottle conditioning since November of 2020.
We will also offer fresh cans of Edward’s namesake American Pale Ale, as well as freshly packaged cans of our American Brown Ale, George. A selection of bottles to-go will also be available for curbside retail, including Port Damon, Soignée Cherry/Raspberry, and Florence: Foudre, amongst others.
