I have to say to start... I am a big fan of the location and the tucked away quality of this brewery. Glad I had a GPS but also glad I missed the first turn it told me to take because someone at the brewery had gotten stuck in the mud by taking that route. Anyhow my route was a nice freshly graded dirt road for a couple miles up to the Vermont hillside that takes you to the brewery which is an old farmhouse & barn brewhouse. I was pleasantly surprised that there was 5-8 cars from VT,NH and ME in the gravel driveway where there were scattered pallets of shrink wrapped bottles and empty kegs. Inside is quite rustic with a little bar and six beers on tap, as well a around a dozen imports from renowned breweries like Fantom & Mikkeller. There is a 4 beer taste limit but since I was with my lovely wife we were able to try all six by sharing a few tastes... not sure why they cant do a 6 beer tasting, state law maybe? The staff was very friendly and there was alot of talking going on about beer. I loaded up with some 750ml and 2L growlers to take back to Maine and was impressed by all of their selections. I do however wish they had some bottles available... That way Id have the option not to drink what I buy within a couple days to ensure freshness. Anyhow that being said I will now be keeping them on the radar and watching their current tap and bottle selection updates via the web, to better plan a fruitful journey for next time. I also hope they plan on investing in a little better more comfortable set up... being there with 10 people was reasonable but had there been ten more its not really set up for comfort.... you have alot of land around you... Im not looking for a resort but build a tasting room with a few benches a and a bathroom. Great place but with a little elbow grease and some thoughtful design this place could be legendary !

Stopped at Hill Farmstead multiple times for beer releases, growler fills and events (3rd Anniversary, Harvest Festival, etc.). Great rustic place in the middle of nowhere. The view is beautiful and itís really awesome to be there outside, drinking beers, especially during festivals when the weather is good. Service is great even if the growler filling line is incredibly slow. You can be sure thereís never a low filled growler at HF (Iím sure thereís almost 300 ml loosed when they fill a 750 ml growler) and the quality of the beer is taken really seriously. Selection isnít huge, but quality is always there. 6 tap line of deliciousness + a couple of their bottles and invited breweries bottles. Value is very good, especially for their growler. This is my favorite brewery and I go their as often as possible. Itís too bad thereís such line to buy their beers, but itís fully understandable.

This place is an American mecca! A must for any real beer geek! Its out of the way, but is it worth the ride. After a few klicks on a country dirt rode, you arrive to this little unassuming little building...and inside, magic! The brewery is simple and rustic, with a small tasting area cum store, super friendly service, making you feel welcome, Shaun came to chat a bit, and met a cool guy, Billy B, who is a devout client and sometimes helper of this crew. The beers are fantastic, 6 taps of goodness. They also have rare imports for sale at decent prize! Wow....must come back...a few times a year. Worth the detour!!!

Stopped in before EBF and dog sledding. Sean and Phil were very friendly, got to try some great beers, prices were reasonable, and as a bonus they are licensed to sell/distribute some tasty beers from elsewhere. Definitely worth the trip even if its out of the way.

Ambiance? Improved! new building looks great. Still love the scenery around here. the days of talking Philís ear off are sadly over as everybody and their grandparents know about this place as this is where you get whatever Hill Farmstead has on at the moment - bottles or growlers. Some imports may be lurking on the shelves at any given time (Drie Fontenein in particular). Prices are what Shaun dictates and they are pretty good - they could easily charge a fair bit more for beer of this calibre. Best tip: Have some samples while standing in line!

Stopped in this garage like building to try some beers. Only one employee so the wait was long. Beers were good. Seven bucks for six two ounce pours. Not much else to say. Worth the trip for the good beer, but not much else there.

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.

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.
