Okay, so it’s a barn on a dirt road with a few stainless steel tanks. The lines are long, and there’s not much to do but taste through their drafts, then wait in the slow moving line to get some to take home. But, the beers are amazing! So. It’s well worth the trip, the wait, and the pain in my back fromstanding in line. I just wish more of their beers came pre-bottled so the lines could move faster. Still, I’ll be back in that line looking for refills as soon as I can make the trip again.

Stopped in on 7/6/13. Didn’t get there as early as we wanted (25 minutes before Noon), but were still only behind about 10 other people. After about 20 minutes, we were able to get in and get growlers and bottles. This day the taps were S&S #5, Edward, Abner, Everett, What is Enlightenment? and Walden; bottles were Everett, Clara and La Vermontoise. Everything you heard about the crazy drive up there and cash only are true. Service was okay. View from the top of the hill was breathtaking (what can I say, everything’s flat where I live). Not easy to get to, but worth the pilgrimage.

So, made the pilgrimage at my wife’s behest. Down a dirt and gravel road, on top of a mountain. Beautiful setting to drink beer. The line to get growler fills was painfully slow but they did flush the bottles. Outside, there is a sampling station where they do their small flights. Prices are fair and definitely an amazing place to visit. Loved vermont.

We arrived on a rainy saturday afternoon and there was already a long line of people slowing the line by asking for multiple 2L growler fills. Blame cannot be put on HFS though as everything they put out is hype-inducing and also very good! We waited for 30-45 minutes before it was our turn to be served by the two really professional person who were there that day. I wish they would bottle more since it would probably solve a part of the growler filling problem and would also mean that I could stock pile a lot more when I go back. Overall it is really worth the trek and the negative points I’ve pointed here are mostly some kind of "growing too fast" issue that I am sure will be resolved somewhere down the line. I’ll be back!

What’s there to say that hasn’t been said? This place is making the best beer in the world and is charging very fair prices for it. If you like IPAs or saisons, they are unequaled, and they’ve got an excellent sour ale program going on as well, though it doesn’t quite match the quality of the standard stuff.

Expect long waits.

CASH ONLY! Timed the 4 hour ride to get there around 12:30 on a Friday to beat the lines I’ve heard about. Maybe 10 people in line moved right along, able to watch Shaun stirring tanks, hoseing stuff down, working his magic. Crazy drive on dirt roads (couple miles) and there’s a new barn with cars parked on the middle of no where. Tasting tent outside, $4 for 4 pours. If you can make this trip, do it.

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 :)

2013-04-26. Fairly quiet when we arrived around 1:00. We sampled our way through the taplist before putting in a growler order, which was a mistake in hindsight as it got busy right around then. The girl behind the bar was great, super friendly, seemed knowledgeable about the beers, the brewery, and the local area. She was quite patient and got us through a large order of 750ml fills despite being on her own with an increasingly large crowd. I kept expecting her to tell us we were asking for too many but she worked us in while taking care of other folks too. We greatly appreciated that since we won’t be back for a while and wanted to maximize our visit. There was a nice selection of HF beers on tap, and a couple of bottles, as well as a small but excellent selection of guest bottles. The brewery itself is fairly small, I imagine it must be crazy on event days or for special releases. We were glad we got there on a weekday. We essentially planned our Vermont visit around this and it was well worth the trip. Hopefully they will start bottling more, especially the saisons and less delicate brews, since as an out of stater I would have loved to have bought more bottles with a longer shelf life than fresh growlers. I suppose that just encourages drinking them sooner rather than later though :) If you go to Vermont without stopping at HF you probably don’t like beer very much.

I drove on a non-paved road for 10 minutes, didn’t see any cars the whole time, arrived to the brewery 5 minutes before open, and still the line was about 25 people outside. There’s one line whether you’re coming for growler fills, bottles, or samples, so you need to plan ahead. This is more of a get-your-stuff-and-go place. You know what you’re getting with HF beers. They are always very good, clean, memorable beers. You have to go to at least experience it.

The location is beautiful. It is in the middle of nowhere, which is somewhere special. I drove on gravel and dirty up a large hill or small mountain and when I was at the top I could look out for miles and miles. As for ambiance I was not fond of a small barn that can hold 20-30 people. I did enjoy seeing the silver tanks but the place was kind of raw. It was not meant to be a retail shop. It is what it is. Before entering I stood out in line for an hour and a half to get in. Being my first time here I didn’t know what was really going on. To me it seemed like the place has not opened yet and we were in line to get in. Many minutes later the door opened and I knew this was going to be some time until I could warm up from being in the cold. After an hour and a half my group made it in. But as soon as we made it in a kind woman approached us and said "we are swamped and if you want growler fills it would be another two hours." I was a little disappointed but hey I could still buy the bottles that were for sale. I was not going to wait hrs to fill one or two growlers. So the kind woman helped us get our bottles and had us go on our way. Overall expect lines and issues if you go here on a release or an event. I attended the Lawson’s Finest release at the farmers market. So many ppl made the journey to here. With all that said I still enjoyed my visit.
