COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
E. is for Edward (1917-2002), my grandfather, as well as the name of the first beer that I brewed in my brewery on March 30, 2010. E. is for Easter; brewing in Denmark revealed a European tradition of crafting Easter (Pske) beer. Thus, in honor of E., to the past and future emprises here on Hill Road, a special first anniversary release. Edward fermented with yeasts of Belgian origin, tank conditioned over four months, dry hopped with Galaxy hops, and bottle conditioned. E is for Entelechy, the continued actualization of our potential through spirited effort and vision.

13P 6.2% abv. Pale and Caramel Malt; Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, Simcoe, Warrior, and Galaxy Hops; Saison and Brettanomyces Yeast, and our Well Water.

Released usually every year. No 2013 version released. Last batch released March of 2016.

Bottle at home. Its amazing how Hill Farmsteads sour/funky beer has such a distinct aroma and taste, and E. has tons of that signature smell. Its funky and vinous, with green apple and lemon flavors and some barnyard taste. The hop bitterness from Edward is also here, but Im not sure it works quite as well -- here its a bit of a distraction from the Belgian yeast and esters. Still, this is a world-class beer.
