COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
E. is for Edward (1917-2002), my grandfather, as well as the name of the first beer that I brewed in my brewery on March 30, 2010. E. is for Easter; brewing in Denmark revealed a European tradition of crafting Easter (Påske) beer. Thus, in honor of E., to the past and future emprises here on Hill Road, a special first anniversary release. Edward fermented with yeasts of Belgian origin, tank conditioned over four months, dry hopped with Galaxy hops, and bottle conditioned. E is for Entelechy, the continued actualization of our potential through spirited effort and vision.

13ºP 6.2% abv. Pale and Caramel Malt; Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, Simcoe, Warrior, and Galaxy Hops; Saison and Brettanomyces Yeast, and our Well Water.

Released usually every year. No 2013 version released. Last batch released April of 2014.

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Serving: Bottle. It pours a hazy orange with a soft and lasting white head. Light stone fruit, hay, fresh cut grass, dusty yeast, and a little funk in the nose. Bright and effervescent on the tongue. Nice peach and nectarine skin notes with a bit of barnyard and hay. Finishes dry. Very nice indeed.

bytemesis (3328) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle thanks to agentzigzag! Pours hazy golden amber, medium off white creamy head, nice lacing. Aroma is Bretty, musty, citrus and grapefruit notes as well. Reminds me of Anchorage Brett strain. Flavor has a light bretty funk, lightly bitter with plenty of citrus notes. Minerally, as is my usual impression of HF beers, perhaps a very light saltiness at the end. Medium body, silky mouthfeel. This is a hell of a beer. I wish I could buy it in six packs.

Hazy yellow pour. Small white head. Little lacing. Malty aroma with some citrus. Taste is malty with a slight sour twang.
