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…

Served on draft into a hill farmstead stemmed glad at Piecassos in Stowe, VT

Pours a deep brown body with cherry highlights, a light mocha head that reduces to a layer of foam and leaves nice lacing.

Aromas are reminiscent of a porter, coffee and toffee are big with caramel and peanuts also present.

On the tongue is slightly sweet caramel and coffee, light vanilla, a nuttyness on the finish and a slight bitter hoppyness on the finish.

Very nice brown, more characteristic of a porter but delicious nonetheless

Deep and complex brown ale. Rich chocolate hits you on first taste as well as in he nose. A slight citrus hop punch comes through on the back end. Medium bodied and well balanced. Not easy to find a better brown ale.
