Release for Week of August 25
For this upcoming week, we’ll debut the next in our seasonal fruited Farmstead® Ales: Pear 2020 Harvest.
Each harvest season, we choose various barrels of our Farmstead® ales that exhibit sympathetic characteristics for pairing with local fruit varieties. Regardless of the base beer blend, the ideal outcome remains the same: a thoughtful, considerate representation of the fruit in season. In this case, we’ve selected a few barrels to complement the 2020 crop of organic Vermont pears from nearby Elmore Roots Nursery, including five different varieties: Stacey, Summercrisp, Luscious, Nova, and Siberian.
We will also have three newly canned offerings: Edward, our American Pale Ale; Abner, our Imperial India Pale Ale; and Society & Solitude #6, our Imperial India Pale Ale brewed with Mosaic® hops. We’ll still have cans of Mary (brewed with organic malted barley), as well. Bottle shop selections will include Nonconformist 02; Cherry/Raspberry 2019 Harvest; Sankt; Barrel-Aged Lemon Cello and Wachu Saison; as well as an array of other options.
We are continuing to refine and troubleshoot our online ordering system to make the ordering, scheduling, and pick-up process more reliable for guests. We appreciate everyone’s patience! Regardless of online ordering status, walk-up, day-of ordering in the bottle shop is available. The same-day order window normally opens on toasttab.com/hillfarmstead at 5 a.m. each retail open day (Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday).
We continue to evaluate our staffing capacity and weather outlook each Monday and, when possible, open additional reservations for our Taproom experience. Additional spots generally become available on Monday at 5 p.m. for the same week.
The refund system for returning canceled Friendships and Explorations Festival tickets is available at https://hillfarmstead.com/festival-ticket-refunds/, which includes complete details for submission.
A reminder that if you’re unable to visit us during normal retail hours, stop by Willey’s Store and Wilson Farm Market in Greensboro, Smith’s Grocery in Greensboro Bend, and Buffalo Mountain Coop in Hardwick. We try to maintain a small selection of bottles, and occasionally cans, in these local spots.
