What a unique trek it was out here. I rented a car in Montreal to drive down here (and a few other Vermont destinations). Over a 5 minute drive on a dirt & gravel road to this place, through farmland and the beautiful Vermont country side. Sampled 4 beers on tap for $5 and purchased a few bottles and a growler to take away with me. The freshness of the hoppy beers is unparalleled right from the tap at the brewery. No wonder this stuff is in such high demand and so hard to get - out in the middle of nowhere and made quite difficult to get. Get your ass over here if you’re anywhere near.

Place was fairly difficult to find, Roads were certianly not too anyones liking, Some else mentioned it as well, really watch out for a bridge at a bottom of a little hill on the way there and out, it doesnt look like it but there is a really nasty bump in the road and certianly put some ware on my suspension because of it. worse on the way out and it does depend on the way you take, but just beware. anyways about the brewery it self, it is a neat bar that they have renovated nicely to allow for a tap room and overall its a nice place and the beers a good. If your will to make the treck through the roads its prob worth your while but the road was something and its really not close to anything. but i am sure thats part of the draw and it is an interesting place for the beer world.

Updated 8/13/2012. Previous sins have been washed away by the excellence of the recent Festival of Farmhouse Ales. It was easily one of the best festivals I’ve ever been to, incredibly well managed, well supplied with beer and food, and just a beautifully peaceful time. The setting is unparalleled. I should give Shaun a break for his first year and some of the bumps that he went through, because this festival was impeccable.

Original review. Love the concept of a remote, farmhouse style brewery, but was a little underwhelmed with the facilities and attitude of the brewer. Stopped in and had a full tour of the brews, which we all quite good. The unfinished building was very messy and hoarded by flies that made standing in the brewery a nuisance, which meant little opportunity to talk to the brewer, since he was in there dealing with the light, but steady trickle of traffic. He spent most of his time ignoring things people said to him and texting on his phone. When he did have things to say they were showed a bit of an ego and were often snotty and dismissive. He wasn’t downright rude, but it was easy to tell that he was full of himself and was far from humble. It really put me off, which is too bad, because the beers are good and the rural setting is beautiful. Also, get an f-in’ public crapper if you’re going to have people visit you this far out in the woods.

Hard to rate this one, as I can’t really rate the Festival of Harvest ales selection which is what I got to sample. There are several great beers available on tap or in bottle, but what you get is a crap shoot (well, it is listed online, but it’s not like many people can just come here at any time!). Great agrarian location. Great people. A bit too many rules maybe, which make it inconvenient regarding some things. If I lived nearby, I would come here at least twice a week for growlers.

Possibilité d’avoir un flight de 4 verres de dégustation pour 5$ en patientant dans la file. Pour plusieurs, c’est la consécration du pèlerin collectionneur/dégustateur. Mon jugement se porte sur les nombreux événements auxquels j’ai assisté également.

This was the primary destination of a 4,000+ mile motorcycle East-Coast brewery trip. THANK GOD for GPS and the dirt roads were a bit nasty on a bike, but arriving at the metal shed/brewery made it ALL WORTH IT. Shaun was exceptionally nice and conversational which only added to the experience. The more I stayed and drank, the more I realized that the building is just a building, it’s the beer that is important. Somehow, maybe it was all the beer I drank, the metal building became charming! Great selection of HIll Farmstead beers on tap, all of which are exceptional. If you claim to like beer, and haven’t made the trip to visit Shaun at Hill Farmstead, SHAME ON YOU!

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.
