Hill Farmstead Brewery  Hill Farmstead Brewery is the culmination of travel and insight, of friendships and explorations, and of realizing a sense of one's place.

On Weds., Nov. 14, we will release a new batch of Gin Barrel-Aged Brother Soigné.

What now seems like ages ago, our friend Bim Lafontaine traveled from Japan to brew with us the inaugural batch of Brother Soigné, which we continue to produce in the spirit of that visit. A small portion of a subsequent batch was aged in gin barrels from nearby Caledonia Spirits and is now ready to be enjoyed.

Please visit our bottle release page, http://hillfarmstead.com/bottle-release, for bottle limits and pricing information (credit card and matching ID required for this bottle). We will also release a fresh batches of Legitimacy and Double Citra in cans.

Check the site for release details.

Cheers! Bob

This coming Wednesday, November 7, we will release a new batch of our Farmstead® Old Ale, Peleg.

Peleg Hill Jr. (1757-1831) was our great, great, great, great grandfather and one of Greensboro's original inhabitants. In his honor, this version of our Farmstead® Old Ale was naturally cooled and open fermented in our outdoor coolship. While conditioning in third fill bourbon barrels for 12 months, it was able to leisurely develop its complex, unique flavors and express both the character of its environs and its history.

Please visit our bottle release page, http://hillfarmstead.com/bottle-release, for bottle limits and pricing information (credit card and matching ID required for this bottle). We will also have fresh cans of Mary and Society & Solitude #5. Please visit our retail page for updated information on these and a wide variety of other offerings.

On Wednesday, 31 October, we will release a new entry in our Civil Disobedience series, this one featuring local cherry crabapples.

Civil Disobedience is our blended barrel-aged series of Farmstead® ales, each one a unique union of carefully selected beers chosen by our brewers to weave often disparate threads into a picture far greater than its individual elements.

Part of this ongoing series also includes pairing blends with seasonal, local fruits. For this release, a new Farmstead® ale aged in puncheons was aged atop cherry crabapples from nearby Elmore, Vt.

Please visit our bottle release page, http://hillfarmstead.com/bottle-release, for bottle limits and pricing information (credit card and matching ID required for this bottle).
We will also have fresh cans of Citra IPA and Society & Solitude #12, a brand new entry in our double IPA series, this one a double red IPA with Centennial, Chinook, Citra® and Simcoe® hops. Please visit our retail page for updated information on these and a wide variety of other offerings.

First snow of the year. Current road conditions: they’re fine but take your time. *objects in video are much slower than they appear! Time lapse shot with a dash mount—safety first.

UPDATE

Thank you to everyone who came out for Wednesday's release. The turnout was amazing. In the interest of ensuring that these bottles are available for as many people as possible, we are going to adjust the limit to 2 bottles per person. Thanks for everyone's patience and good natures today, and we hope to see more of you tomorrow and beyond. ------
On Weds., Oct. 24, we will release a new batch of Damon.

The time spent with loved ones, now lost, seems to affect our mind and body perpetually; memories happen upon us, unsuspectingly, and bring about tears of fond remembrance. Damon (1993-2004) was our brother—devout and patient in an age of busyness and distraction. In his honor, we crafted and conditioned this imperial stout in bourbon barrels from our favorite distilleries. We still reflect, daily, upon our Damon and his scruffy chin of grey—of his loyalty and his love.

Please visit our bottle release page, http://hillfarmstead.com/bottle-release, for bottle limits and pricing information (credit card and matching ID required for this bottle). We will also have fresh cans of Society & Solitude #4, along with a wide selection of cans and bottle offerings to go, as well as for onsite enjoyment. Please visit our retail page for updated information.

On October 15, 1844, educator, philosopher and poet Friedrich Nietzsche was born in Röcken, Germany. As some of you may have recognized, Nietzsche has been more than merely a progenitor of inspirational beer titles. His own introspection and transformative thought was among the grounding forces that would establish the thought patterns and principles that carried our business into existence. Thus, to celebrate this anniversary, we will offer a special onsite-only variant of our imperial and barrel-aged porter, Birth of Tragedy, beginning on Wednesday, October 17, in our taproom.

After aging for more than 26 months in a bourbon barrel, we further conditioned the beer atop organic vanilla beans and Finca Alasitas Java coffee beans from Bolivia, sourced and roasted by The Coffee Collective in Copenhagen, Denmark. These friends long ago changed our worldview as to what coffee could be and continue to deeply influence us here at Hill Farmstead. “ ... all life rests on appearance, art, illusion, optics, the need for perspective and for error...” Please note: this beer will only be available for enjoyment onsite in our tasting room, not for take away.

We will also have a section of vintage offerings in the onsite cooler, as well as fresh cans of Double Nelson to-go alongside much more.

Best,

Bob and Shaun

On Weds., Oct. 10, we will release a new batch of Phenomenology of Spirit.

Phenomenology of Spirit was our first collaborative saison—originally brewed in 2010. this version of our dark Farmstead® ale was aged for more than 8 months in oak barrels. The final blend is composed of Spirit aged in red wine barrels as well as bourbon barrels that had formerly been used to age our maple imperial stout.
Please visit our bottle release page, http://hillfarmstead.com/bottle-release, for bottle limits and pricing information (credit card and matching ID required for this bottle). We will also have fresh cans of Society & Solitude #11, along with a wide selection of cans and bottle offerings. Please visit our retail page for updated information.

On Weds., October 3, we will release a new Flora variant for onsite only enjoyment: Flora Mélange.
Flora is the wine barrel-aged version of Florence (1915-1967), our grandfather's sister as well as the name of our Farmstead® wheat ale. We selected a single barrel of Flora and aged it on fresh, Vermont-grown pawpaw; rowan berries; cherry crabapples; and gooseberries.

Please note: this beer will only be available for enjoyment onsite in our tasting room, not for take away.
Cheers,
Bob

UPDATE: SOLD OUT
