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

What’s to be said that hasn’t 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 wasn’t 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 didn’t 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, it’s the brewery turning out the best beer in the world against a beautiful fall foliage backdrop, but there’s 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 that’s 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.

Finally made it to Mecca (at least the US Mecca) with a group of students and profs from my work trip. There were a dozen people in line at about 3PM on a Thursday already, but they ran them through the line pretty efficiently. A very interesting setup - it really is a barn, with an HF flag identifying it for what it is. Sean was walking around in stained clothes on the phone and inspecting the beer. Hard to believe so much goodness comes out of so few gallons of production capacity! It was kind of weird hanging out in the parking lot with all these folks who were there to stock up to the hilt - one guy must have had twenty cases of Heady in is truck and was cycling through the line getting five growlers a crack. Weird, but then again when I got to the front I ordered enough to fill a 12-bottle shipper, and then headed to the Alchemist :) Update based on the new tasting room being open for business. Getting there is just as much fun as ever, but now they have many more beers in bottle, higher limits and the same great prices. Bottle line is separate from the growler / tasting room, which is a bonus. New tasting room is pretty awesome, with a great view of the much expanded brewery, spotless as ever. Growler fills are handled on a take a number priority, and a separate line for sample pours and other onsite fun. They have an onsite consumption bottle list which includes a mix of stuff available to go next door and other fun stuff (they had CD16 and Flora Plum when we were there). There is a bout a 25% markup for the onsite bottles. Tap beers served in 5 oz pours, supposedly limit 2, but I did not see anybody counting. I found it odd that the list of beers available for pours was not the same as that available for growler fills. No idea why not. If you are getting growlers filled however, you can try small (like 1 oz) samples of the other stuff as well. All in all, this new setup is just about as well organized as a brewery on-site operation could be. Would you expect less from Shawn?

Everything was awesome. We arrived around 2 on a weekday so it was pretty empty. The server poured us samples of every beer to try before we ordered a glass. Number system for growlers was simple (and I imagine necessary when busy). Had a pizza from s vendor out front that was delicious.

Best beer in the world - it’s true... Yes, the lines are long, and it’s in the middle of nowhere, and some of the reviews I’ve read complain about dirt roads and no wifi.... Ahh, the city folk. Truth is that it’s 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 it’s worth every second, every time I visit. Every time I go there, I can’t wait to go back.

This is a biased review but I don’t care. Shaun showed me a really good time when I visited the brewery last weekend. Amazing place in the middle of nowhere. I’ve never had a HF beer that I didn’t 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 I’ve been too. Going to be a regular stop, worth going out of your way.
