Abner, The Arrival of Wheat Blanc, and More for 19-21 August
Extraordinary times encourage deviations from a presupposed path. These unanticipated aberrations, we hope, will yield well-received outcomes.
For this coming week, 19-21 August, we will debut cans of Abner (!), a new release of Juicy, growlers of Genealogy: Coffee Collective Akmel Nuri, and a wholly new beer, Wheat Blanc. In the coming days, look for more details about Wheat Blanc, as well as our bottle conditioning philosophy, in particular.
Many of you are familiar with this iconic imperial IPA. For ten years, we have modestly cherished this beer’s freshness and presence on our taps. It has served as a reoccurring reminder for the history of this land and the brewery itself. It was the second beer produced here, after Edward, in April of 2010, and has made regular appearances.
It is, and remains, a foundational Hill Farmstead Brewery offering.
Genealogy: Coffee Collective Akmel Nuri
Our Coffee Collective Collaboration Series continues with this release of Genealogy, our stainless-conditioned coffee imperial stout. This release features coffee grown by Akmel Nuri at his farm in Jimma, Ethiopia, and roasted by some of our favorite people on the planet at The Coffee Collective in Copenhagen.
In our continued exploration of Farmstead® ales within various contexts and processes, we present a new beer: a lively, delicately tart, oak-aged ale with a malt bill comprised of 90% wheat and 10% barley, and hopped exclusively with hand-selected Hallertauer Blanc hops from Seitz Farm—our agricultural partner in Wolnzach, Germany. Bottle conditioning since early 2018, we have closely monitored its progress, anticipating its optimistic arc of development.
