Retail Update for 2 November 2022

Clara • Susan and Marie • Reservation Update

We are well and truly into Vermont’s sixth (or seventh) season, charmingly referred to as Stick Season. There’s a distinctive and unique mood to the Northeast Kingdom before our first snowfall, well worth embracing with the long winter ahead of us. This week, Clara’s namesake beer returns to our bottle shop line-up, and Susan and Marie’s respective namesake beers once again head to the draft lines and can offerings. Reservations for the remainder of the year will open up on Tuesday, 1 November, at noon with a revised format, taking into account the changing seasons, our limited inside space, and more than a year of experience with the reservation format. Check out our previous post for a detailed look at our reservation service updates. 

Visit our website for details on reservations and can, bottle, growler, and draft offerings.


This Grisette is crafted from organic American malted barley, Vermont Organic Wheat, European and American hops, our distinctive farmhouse yeast, and water from our well. Clara (1906-1969) was Edward’s sister; Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to her and her 13 siblings. 

Also available for takeaway as bottles will be Charlie, Wheat Blanc, Anna, Arthur, Florence, Self-Reliance: Motueka, and Self-Reliance 3-bottle gift sets.
