Went for the fall festival. Left completely drunk on the best beers Iíve ever had. From daybreak to goose island dominque. Really out there in Vermont. Absolutely worth the trip and the alchemist istn far away.

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.

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. UPDATE:After the new expansion, this is THE craft beer Mecca. No other word can describe it. Bottles are bought in one building (if thatís your thing), growlers, tasters and full pours are available in the new expansion. Along with tables, chairs and cheese plates. God Tier destination. This is the only brewery I need to go to for the rest of my life.

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!

Perfect beers. Great service. Great prices. Only complaint is the distance, but itís worth every second, every time I visit. Every time I go there, I canít wait to go back.

This is a biased review but I donít care. Shaun showed me a really good time when I visited the brewery last weekend. Amazing place in the middle of nowhere. Iíve never had a HF beer that I didnít at least like. Most are exceptional. This is a brewery I would consider moving just to be closer to. And I bet there is a great selection of aged lambics if you know where to look.

Beautiful place in the middle of no-where. Incredible drive to get there. Very serene. Great helpful staff, best big event Iíve been too. Going to be a regular stop, worth going out of your way.

Rating this based on non-release day crowds. On normal days, itís easy to show up, get beer and leave. HFS is a great place to hang out at and to buy beer. The folks working here are amazing and awesome. Events are well run, itís a great drive and very relaxing. Some of the best beer in the world. Shout out to Phil for being patient and awesome.

Attended the Harvest Festival. The place is what it is, a farm. They had a large outdoor tent set up and local eateries selling cheeses and sausages. The retail shop is basically a garage which they appear to be renovating a little at a time. The room had a really fancy door and a nice tongue and groove wood ceiling but the rest was a garage. The beer though is the star. Quite possibly the best lineup of beers I have ever had from any brewery. I was able to try Ephraim, Abner, Jim, Art, Fear and Trembling, Daybreak, Flora, double citra, and amarillo pale. All of which were just spectacular. The service was friendly and fantastic. If youre going to be in the area do yourself a favor and make the trip to the middle of nowhere and itll be worth it. I plan on making the 4 hour drive at least once a year after my first visit.
