Notes/Commercial Description:
George was our grandfather’s brother, and Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to him and his 13 siblings.

George is our American Brown Ale. Hopped, rightfully so, with Centennial, Cascade, and a touch of Columbus…

On tap at the brewery.

Dark brown body yields no shortage of handsome, tan head. Stubborn, sticky lace. Brown ales aren't supposed to look this good.

Aroma is stunning, even from afar. Intensely roasted malts meet coffee and hazelnuts. Everything follows through into the taste, layering delectable flavors atop each other. Just the right balance of nutty and roasty flavors. Highly drinkable; smooth and approachable too. Wow, that was incredible.

George is easily the most underrated HF brew. Arguably the best brown ale I've ever had, and I want more.

Serving type: on-tap
