Bottle Releases For The Week Of June 14!

On Weds., June 14, we will release both the newest iteration of our Madness & Civilization series, Release #9, and a new batch of Clara!

This batch of Madness & Civilization is composed of Barrel-Aged Everett and Birth of Tragedy, each aged in our favorite bourbon barrels for 2 years, blended with fresh Genealogy, and then conditioned further with coconut and vanilla. After months of bottle conditioning, this beer is now ready for release and enjoyment. 

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. 

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

Clara is our Farmstead® Grisette, crafted from American malted barley, Vermont organic wheat, European and American hops, our distinctive farmhouse yeast and water from our well. Unfiltered and naturally carbonated, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Clara.

Retail Update for the Week of June, 6

On Wednesday, June 7, we are pleased to debut the most recent entries in our Civil Disobedience series: 18 and 20.  

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.  

Civil Disobedience 18 is a vibrant yet elegant beer woven from various threads, including barrel-aged Dorothy and Arthur from puncheons. Packaged in 750ml bottles, this blend is only available for onsite consumption in our tasting room and will not be available to take home. 

Civil Disobedience 20 is dark, delicate and complex blend of Shirley Mae that was fermented in bourbon barrels and our spontaneously fermented collaboration with Cigar City. Packaged in 375ml bottles, this blend will be available for purchase in our bottle shop.
 
Please check our bottle release page, http://hillfarmstead.com/bottle-release, for bottle limits and pricing information.  (credit card and matching ID required, please see our bottle release policy). 

Retail hours are Wednesday - Saturday, 12 p.m. - 5 p.m.

Bottle Shop for Our Anniversary Week of May 24 - May 27

This Wednesday, May 24, on the commencement of our Anniversary Week celebration, we are honored with the release of Dorothy, our dry-hopped Farmstead® pale ale aged in oak barrels. 

Dorothy (1921-1994) was our grandfather's sister; Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to her and her 13 siblings.  In her honor, we have aged Dorothy in wine barrels for 1 year.  We crafted this beer from American malted barley, malted wheat, New Zealand and American hops, our distinctive yeast blend and water from our well.  After a year conditioning in wine barrels, Dorothy is ready for release.  This is the ale that I dream to have shared with Dorothy. 

750ml, $30, limit 3 per person (credit card and matching ID required, please see our 
bottle release policy). 

We will have normal hours throughout the week of our Anniversary, Wednesday - Saturday from 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Bottle Shop for the Week of May 16

Next Wednesday, May 17, we release a new batch of Genealogy of Morals (Genealogie der Moral) in our retail bottle shop. 

Genealogy of Morals, the name of one of our most coveted Nietzschean narratives, also happens to be one of our barrel-aged imperial stouts.  We brewed this wheat imperial stout, added a touch of coffee, and aged it in a selection of bourbon barrels from our favorite distillers.  After 20 months in these barrels and many months of bottle conditioning, this beer is ready for release.  

500ml, $20, limit 2 per person (credit card and matching ID required, please see our bottle release policy). 

Retail hours are Wednesday - Saturday from 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Farmer Wave Returns to the Bottle Shop

On Wednesday, May 10, we will release this year's batch of Farmer Wave for the new Spring. 

“Hugs feel great.  But when you find yourself behind the wheel of a 4,000lb truck rumbling over the gravel, hugging each person you pass just isn't in the cards. So you raise your finger off the wheel just enough to acknowledge your neighbor.  The Farmer Wave is a completely legitimate and wholly appreciated acknowledgement.  It really is the least you can do to recognize that fleeting moment that you share with another person.  It is simple, but meaningful.” – Matt Dinges

Farmer Wave is our ale brewed with oats, lime zest, lime juice, and salt in collaboration with our dear friend Matt Dinges of Good Life Provisions. 

750ml, $12, limit 6 per person (credit card and matching ID required, please see our bottle release policy). 

Retail hours are Wednesday - Saturday from 12 p.m. - 5 p.m.

Bottle Shop for the Week of May 2

This Wednesday, May 3, we are pleased to release a new batch of Flora, our Farmstead® Wheat Ale aged in wine barrels. 

Flora is the wine barrel aged version of Florence (1915 - 1967), our grandfather's sister as well as the name of our wheat Farmstead® ale.  In honor of Florence, we mindfully blend her namesake beer from wine barrels that have been aged and conditioned for many months and several years.  The beer embodies the pursuit that guides our progressive vision for Hill Farmstead--this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Florence. 

750ml, $35, limit 3 per person (credit card and matching ID required, please see our bottle release policy).

We are open in retail Wednesday - Saturday from 12 p.m. - 5 p.m.

Bottle Shop for the Week of April 25

Beginning Wednesday, April 26, we will release Birth of Tragedy: Akmel Nuri in our bottle shop.  Birth of Tragedy: Akmel Nuri is an imperial porter brewed with honey and aged in bourbon barrels on Akmel Nuri's coffee from Limu Kosa, Jimma in Ethiopia.

We have chosen two barrels of Birth of Tragedy as the base for this single origin coffee experiment.  After aging for 20 months in select bourbon barrels, we conditioned this beer atop Akmel Nuri's Ethiopian coffee beans sourced and roasted by The Coffee Collective in Copenhagen, Denmark.  These friends long ago changed our worldview as to what coffee could be.  After months of bottle conditioning, the beer is ready for release.   

375ml, $20, limit 1 per person (credit card and matching ID required, please see our bottle release policy). 

We are open in Retail on Wednesday - Saturday, from 12 p.m - 5 p.m.
