Got to check this one off the bucket list. The place isnít as exciting as the beer. Getting there was fun. Gravel parking area. You walk into a wooden building with an open room and concrete floors. Wait in one and buy samples. The line tastes some time but itís no biggie because youíre drinking awesome beers. Our selection was all hoppy stuff except for Earl. Would have liked to have a saison thrown in the mix. No bottles available when we were there. Still worth the trip. The beer is amazing.

Made the long road trip from Columbus, Ohio to Hill Farmstead - with a layover in Rochester NY, to stay with another RBian (who joined me on the trip to VT). The roads to get here - once your off the highway, are horrible...especially when wet, in our case. Multiple parking sections near the brewery. We arrived a little early on a wed. - 4th and 5th in line. Soon we were being served flights from the draft - 2oz pours...a nice touch while waiting. Staff was incredibly nice, personable, and into the work they were doing. I could see the process of waiting, placing and receiving orders to take quit sometime if more people were there. It took us 45min. in all. Ambiance - sure your in a beautiful outside environment, but all your really experiencing is a gravel parking lot, and an open room with cement floors and walls - with a couple of registers, taps, and cases of bottles. Selection of course is great for HF beers, but thatís about it, and it was either IPA or saison. Also available were 2 bottles of Crooked Stave. Value was excellent, "normal" to below "normal" growler fill prices, and 750 ml bottles were $10 and $13. Overall, an enjoyable experience. If HF were more widely available, I would probably never go back....but since it is not, I would definitely return, maybe in a year or 2.

Best beer in the world - itís true... Yes, the lines are long, and itís in the middle of nowhere, and some of the reviews Iíve read complain about dirt roads and no wifi.... Ahh, the city folk. Truth is that itís worth it. You drive away with the best beer you can get and get to taste while you wait. Stop complaining, or stop coming - love me some Hill Farmstead!

Obviously, the beer is great. Prices for growler fills are insanely cheap given the quality. Staff was extremely friendly, but it took about 2 hours to get my growlers filled. Not entirely sure what they need to do differently, but there has to be a way to speed that process up. Outside of that itís pretty hard to find anything wrong with this place.

Finally made it to this beer mecca. I got there about 30 minutes after opening and it took me two hours before I got my beer. Four people working but they could have easily utilized one or two more to keep things going. Two of the employees were exceptionally friendly and helpful, and two were not terribly friendly, but they were doing less customer focused things so CS was overall great. Ambiance is nice enough, light woods, farmhouse feel. The golden lab Charlie was wandering around, obviously overjoyed by the number of people he was getting to meet. That was nice. 4 samples for $5 while youíre in line. I tried Edward, Susan, Harlan and Galaxy, all were as excellent as you would expect. Growler fills are reasonable for the glass and for the beer. No bottles available at my visit, save for two Crooked Stave guest bottles. This goes without saying, but, this is an essential stop and worth the hike to get here.

Great beer, nice people behind the counter. Always a nice selection of drafts and very affordable prices on growlers and bottles. Some of the rarer bottles can get pricey but for the most part very affordable especially for how desirable the beers are.

Whatís to be said that hasnít already? I finally made it to Hill Farmstead. Beer is obviously the best out there. The growler line can move a bit slow at times, but we got there early enough that we were in and out in a half hour after opening. Prices for growler fills were very reasonable. Great experience.

This is on the outskirts of e middle of nowhere, and isnít going to be stumbled across; it is definitely an intentional destination. As good as the beer is, it is as inefficient as it possibly could be. A forty person line took us 2.5 hours, and there is a limit of 3 growlers per person. That is inexplicable. The beer delivers though.

Just got back from a quick weekend trip (NJ to VT) for the sole purpose of visiting this brewery.
The trip: Yes, itís remote. Yes, there are dirt roads, limited-to-no cell reception, and few gas stations/services. I didnít mind that part. Itís like a scavenger hunt with a pretty epic prize at the end!
The brewery: As it stands, there are few (if any) frills. Itís a beautiful piece of land, but itís function over form until the expansion is complete.
The products: Indisputable quality. They know their craft, and we know that. Enough said.
The value: Canít be beat. The only other HF bottles Iíve obtained are through trade, a random lucky night where I found it on draft, or the secondary market. In any case you canít beat straight retail.
The service/process: The staff was very friendly and efficient. Yes, itís a laborious process to fill growlers. The fact that you can do the tastings in line is great and helps to pass the time. Be patient; youíll get what you want.
Overall, a great experience. I hope to make it back some day!

The last 3-4 miles of driving to the brewery are all dirt roads with tight turns up and down hills and barely wide enough for 1.5 cars. Consider yourself warned. I arrived on Wednesday morning at 11:25am. It wasnít a special bottle release or anything, just a normal business day. There were already 25 people ahead of me. It opened at noon. The retail shop itself is really just an adjacent space next to the brewing equipment, which means you get to see Shaun Hill in action. You are literally 5 feet away from the brewing equipment, just seperated by a thin rope. The girl will bring you 4x2oz tasters while you wait in line for $5 cash only. The line is insanely slow. Like I said, 25 people ahead of me and I didnít get my beer until 2pm. So, figure 12 or so customers served per hour. Ambiance is like being in a brewery, which you are. There is no food. There are only porta potty toilets to use.
Yes, itís the brewery turning out the best beer in the world against a beautiful fall foliage backdrop, but thereís literally nothing but beer and views. No places to sit. No food. Long lines and slow service. No cell phone reception. They did have wi-fi, but it stopped working. the only reason to visit this brewery is to pick up beer and then leave.
