Rastacouere  (664) Montreal, Quebec | July 13, 2014
One of the best breweries in the world, in a beautiful surroundings. The drive is tedious for almost anyone, but this only adds to the draw. So good that they can thrive with what would be unacceptable delays almost anywhere else. While the staff is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, the operations are annoyingly inefficient, but then again, could it voluntarily be part of the charm and myth?

Pretty little brewery in the middle of nowhere. You’ll have to take a drive on a couple of dirt roads to get there. Visited on a Thursday afternoon, there were maybe a dozen people in front of us. The line move slowly, but after an hour we were out of there. You can also have some samples while you’re waiting (four 2oz pours for 5$). 6 taps and 7 bottles available. Friendly and professional service. Cash only. Cool experience but really, you’re just stand up in line waiting for growlers to be filled.

Comments: This is not a brewery tasting room as there is no place to sit down and try the beer. You are limited to only a few samples and cannot get a sample of every beer on tap if it exceeds 4-5. WiFi is free, but didn’t work. Extremely slow moving line once you walk in is for growler fills only. If you are buying bottles, you use a separate, unmarked line. If you are just there for tasting beers, then you came to the wrong place. You can taste beers while you are in line for growlers as a way of deciding which beers to fill your growlers. Small line took 45 min to suffer. Location is In the middle of nowhere with no food. So come with a packed lunch I guess? 5 bottles were available including 3 that are nationally distributed through Grassroots/Anchorage and Shelton Bros. So only 2 bottles not available elsewhere. No full pours available by Vermont law. Disappointing. Would not recommend coming all the way out here. Better to go to Waterbury and hit up the beer bars with full pours. This is why Hill Farmstead’s Anniversary event was not at Hill Farmstead. They are also cash only even though they have really high prices, have an iPad, and have WiFi. That is just inexcusable. Closest ATM is miles away and charges a fee. So I guess if you go here you have to be rolling like $300 in cash deep. Should tell the local gang to start holding people up on Hill Rd.

Checked this one off the fermentation bucket list today. Fun drive up a dirt road, wondering if Google Maps was just screwing with me. Lots of construction going on (more on that later). Arrived on a warm Tuesday afternoon at a little after 2:00. There were about 15 people in front of me and it took a little over 1 hour to get a few growlers and a bunch of bottles. No complaints, however, they ran a really nice, tight ship. $5 for 4 2oz tasting pours made the time go by much faster. A creepy old dude came in after I had been waiting about 50 minutes and asked if he could just buy a few bottles. The person working there went back to check that they had enough bottles to cover everyone already in line (Madness and Civilization #4). That was cool. Expensive. It was quite fun! The new construction is a new retail area (with cellar storage underneath) and slated to be finished by October. Will be even nicer then, and perhaps they will take credit cards then! Bring cash or be prepared to cry many, many tears.

Bâtisse perdue au milieu de nulle part, en fait c’est une grange où on vend de la bière. Service un peu lent, mais aimable. Les prix sont bons dans l’ensemble et les bières sont plus qu’excellente. Seul bémol, l’attente peut être plutôt longue.

I have visited the place a few times over the past 4 years.  Last time was for the E. release. We showed up at 10:45 am, it was pretty darn cold up in the hills. Doors were opened at 12 :15…..  15-20 people in front of us with multiples growlers (no respect here for the 3 growlers policy ?  Please respect your own policy !!!!!).  Staff who is always nice seems overwhelmed with the crowd, not prepared and disorganized. Please Hill Farmstead, try to learn how to be efficient….  A little respect for people who are driving hours to get to the number 1 brewery in the world…. Suggestion for growlers when you know it’s gonna be jam pack with geeks, can you prepare a bunch in advance?  Anyway, I hate your system, but I love your overpriced beers.

Établissement visité le vendredi 28 février vers 16h45. Ambiance: Pas vraiment d’ambiance si ce n’est un système de son qui joue de la musique. Look garage, au moins c’est vitré. Service: On a attendu 1h20 pour se faire remplir nos growlers. Pourquoi ne pas les remplir à l’avance et nous les donner en échange de nos growlers vide. Ça augmenterais la rapidité du service. Sélection: Rien à dire côté sélection, tout était de grande qualité. (232e rating d’établissement)

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 all about the experience. There is nothing like rolling up the dirt road to a barn and having some of the best beer you’ve ever had. I’m torn on the service rating because on the one hand, I waited two hours to get my beer. But I can’t complain about getting four samples while standing in beautiful northern Vermont. And I think the wait is worth it for the quality of the beer.
