Best feature is the scenic setting, spectacular in fall. Some good rarity bombers to choose from. Selection in the tap room is far from awesome, though. Worth a single pilgrimage.

This place is just awesome. Be prepared to wait though. We went on a very busy Friday afternoon. The line for to-go cans and bottles was a breeze, but we waited nearly an hour for growler fills and about 20 minutes for every draft beer. That said, this place is still great. They could make some tweaks to their process for handling crowds and it would be that much better.

Over the years Hill Farmstead has evolved into a truly world-class beer destination. The addition of the tasting room a couple of years ago added a level of comfort and efficiency to the operation that wasn’t previously present; it allows the brewery to take full advantage of its utterly picturesque location by giving patrons the ability to enjoy a beer instead of just waiting for takeaway in an interminable line. On that note, one of the coolest features is the on-premise only selection, which includes rare house specialties and often some of the best beers made elsewhere around the world - selections that are made possible by pure force of reputation. Service is fantastic; this is a community oriented, local-first, high integrity brewery if ever there was one.

There was a time when visiting Hill Farmstead had its drawbacks, mostly related to huge crowds, slow service, and limited consumption options. There are still vestiges of these problems in some respects, but now more than ever they are swallowed up in the bucolic scenery and of course the absolutely top-flight beer.

If I had one complaint it would be that for years I’ve waited eagerly for Hill Farmstead to expand its offering of lagers and possibly experiment some with its reliably excellent (some would say predictably so) canvas for its hoppy pale ales; more lagers have been on in recent years but man, I would just fall to pieces if Shaun ever made a noble-hopped pale ale in his style. If I’m honest with myself, a little piece of me is disappointed every time I visit to see the same smattering of fantastic American-hopped beers on tap with maybe one or two variable other options.

Ultimately, this is complaining for its own sake. Sure, I’d like to see the horizons expanded here, not as much because I have any issue with the state of things but because the possibilities are rendered so boundless and exciting because of the sheer level of talent at hand.

There is still almost nowhere else in the world I’d rather go to revel in the enjoyment of beer.

Seriously one of the most amazing brewery you can ever go. The selection of bottles available is gorgeous, top quality. The tap room is great as well you can taste whatever you want take a pint at $4 US and relax outside or inside. What would you want more than this? Oh yes, the service when I went there was top notch, super friendly staff. Once you’ve been there you will want to revisit the day after.

What am I going to say that hasn’t already been said 113 times? I lucked into a fantastic imperial pils on tap (Song of Joy) and some very tasty offerings from a food truck churning out delicious tacos. PS - Cell service and 4G is come-and-go, so call who you gotta call and get your navigational bearings straight before you get too close.

Visited February 2016. Far from everything but well worth the visit. Some weird rules about buying samples. Bottles had good prices as well as growlers

I came here for FOFA last August so the ambiance out in the field with an amazing selection of American sours gets lots of points. The service was friendly and knowledgeable. It’s well worth getting here at least once and is world class but it lacks the depth of someplace like Akkurat or Kulminator in terms of variety of styles and ramping things up to the next level. All this being said, the tasting room was closed when I went due to the fest so I should probably re-rate it sometime on a regular day. A great place and during FOFA probably the best place to be to try the breadth and depth of the US sour scene.

Visited on a Friday afternoon around 3 pm. They are out a couple dirt roads in rural Vermont, so they are fairly secluded. They had what seemed to be more than sufficient parking for everyone. It seemed most people were here to fill growlers and maybe buy a few bottles. It took only a couple minutes in the "drink here" line to get beer, whereas you had to take a number for growlers. I had a bottle of brother soigne and several draft beers on my visit. They do not offer flights, but you can try whatever you like before purchasing. Not really the same, but a step in the right direction. The thing about this place that was a major let down is that all the draft beers were pale ales, or some iteration of a pale ale. Every damn one. I know they are great at making other styles, so why limit the drafts to only pales? I don’t get it. Regardless, I did enjoy myself here, and would come back again, but I would be more excited if the tap list was a little more interesting and diverse.

The location is fantastic, basically on top of a hill in middle of the Vermont countryside, miles away from anywhere else. Service was friendly but I went on an apparently very busy weekend and it all seemed a bit inefficient. Selection is quite limited, particularly for draft pours / growler fills, only had pale ales and IPA’s on offer when I was there but did have other stuff in bottles. I did however like everything that I tasted. Free samples available for anything on tap - good. Two drink max per person - bad, particularly when you have driven miles to get here and don’t have the possibility to take a growler home. Prices were good. Worth a visit for sure but a bit over-hyped in my opinion.
