For Double Barrel Aaron, we will allocate bottles each retail day for online ordering (same-day pick-up only). Beginning at 8 a.m. each morning (Weds. – Sat.), our Toast online store will go live (toasttab.com/hillfarmstead/) through which you can place your order.
Double Barrel Aaron
Brewed in February of 2019 and rested for nearly two years in specially selected 12-year Bourbon barrels, the beer found a second stay in freshly emptied Cognac barrels for eighteen additional months. After four years of considered shepherding, his namesake barleywine-style ale has achieved unique harmony, refinement, and complexity. Aaron A. Hill (1785-1869) operated the original tavern in North Greensboro and upon whose original sign the Hill Farmstead Brewery logo is based.
This variation of Anna’s namesake Farmstead® ale is brewed with organic malted barley and Vermont wildflower honey and dry-hopped with personally selected Motueka™ hops grown by Freestyle Hops in Upper Moutere, New Zealand.
For cans and growlers this week:
- Nelson Single Hop Pale Ale – Brewed exclusively with personally selected Nelson Sauvin hops from Freestyle Hops
- Of First & Last Things – IPA brewed with hand-selected Simcoe®, Motueka™, and Nelson Sauvin hops
- Double Citra – Double IPA brewed with personally selected Citra® hops.

In addition to this week’s new offerings, our bottle selection includes Civil Disobedience Blend 36; Biere de Norma; Nonconformist 06; Sankt Hans; Plum: 2021 Harvest;as well as curated guest bottles from 3 Fonteinen.
