Bottle Release For The Week Of Oct. 18, 2017!

On Weds., October 18, we will release a brand new beer: Barrel-Aged What is Enlightenment?

Originally brewed to celebrate our second anniversary, What is Enlightenment? is an American pale ale crafted with Simcoe and Amarillo hops. We aged a small portion of freshly brewed beer in a variety of French oak barrels for over 8 months, dry-hopped with Simcoe and Amarillo and then bottle conditioned. The result: a bright, enlivening and aromatic beer that dares one to be wise and seek reason.

Please visit our bottle release page on Sunday, Oct. 15, after noon, http://hillfarmstead.com/bottle-release, for bottle limits and pricing information (credit card and matching ID required, please see our bottle release policy).

Bottle Release For The Week Of Oct. 4 and Reminder!

Reminder!

Retail hours for the coming week are Wednesday - Friday, 12 p.m. - 5 p.m.

We are closed entirely Saturday, Oct. 7, for a multitude of reasons! This includes both bottle shop and tasting room. 

Thank you for your understanding. 

On Weds., Oct. 4, we are pleased to release Civil Disobedience Citrus and a new batch of Bourbon Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup!

Civil Disobedience Citrus

Comprised of Arthur and Florence, which were aged in barrels for between 10 and 24 months and then conditioned atop a variety of fresh organic citrus for many months. Bright, lightly tart and delicate, this enlivens the memory of spring citrus as we wend our way towards cooler temperatures.

Civil Disobedience, our nonviolent protest against the homogenization of flavor, comes in the form of a spontaneous, circumstantial and unpredicted series of beer releases. We relinquish control in favor of an anarchistic collaboration of microbial activity. This is the expression of our conscience, our opposition to oppression and an act of creative freedom.

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).

Bourbon Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup

We fill bourbon barrels from our favorite distilleries with maple syrup produced by our friends at Peck Family Farm in East Montpelier, Vt. The syrup is aged several months and then packaged in a resealable container; this year we will once again offer 750ml glass flip-top containers as well as new 375ml corked and waxed bottles! Because of the aging process, you may experience some barreling sediment, but we have taken all possible precautions to eliminate it while maintaining the essential maple and bourbon character.

Bottle Release For The Week Of Sept. 27, 2017

On Weds., September 27, we will release a new batch of Barrel-Aged Fear & Trembling.

Fear and Trembling is a Baltic porter brewed with malt that was hand-smoked over a blend of native woods. Originally conceived as a collaboration in our first month of operations with our former colleague, Anders Kissmeyer, this version is fermented in the traditional way, with lager yeast, and aged in both wine and bourbon barrels before bottle conditioning. As a student of philosophy and former resident of Copenhagen, it seemed fitting to name our first collaboration (April 2010) after Denmark's great thinker: Søren Kierkegaard. Anders, Shaun, and Søren: All three contemplated absurdity, faith, and salvation while wandering the shores of the Baltic Sea...

"...continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling..."

Please visit our bottle release page on Sunday, Sept. 24, at noon, http://hillfarmstead.com/bottle-release, for bottle limits and pricing information (credit card and matching ID required, please see our bottle release policy).

Bottle Release For The Week Of Sept. 13, 2017

On Weds., Sept 13, we will release Madness & Civilization #10!

Madness & Civilization #10 is comprised of Damon—aged in barrels from our favorite bourbon distilleries for over 2 years—and 2-year old barrel-aged Everett, along with a small portion of Genealogy of Morals aged for 27 months in rye whiskey barrels. The blend has been bottle conditioned for 6 months and is now ready for release. 

Madness & Civilization is a panorama of our barrel aging program—oak-aged beers that emerge from their individual silences to find structure and voice as a unified composition. This is the result of an unpredictable state of permanent happenstance—a dialogue with our evolving approach to blending that challenges convention and circumstance.

Civil Disobedience, our nonviolent protest against the homogenization of flavor, comes in the form of a spontaneous, circumstantial and unpredicted series of beer releases.

Civil Disobedience 21 is composed of beers from a diversity of barrels ranging from 10 to 25 months of age—including Anna, Elaborative 4 and a mélange of Leaves of Grass—then bottle conditioned for over 10 months, resulting in a delicate yet complex beer that represents its individual elements as a seamless panorama.
