Awesome place! Gorgeous views from the farm in the middle of Vermont. Love this place! New taproom is excellent and a great place to hangout while you wait for your fills. They have fill pours and bottles for onsite consumption. Oh and some of the best beer in the world!

Friendly, knowledgable staff. Very well organized. Exceptional selection. I do wish they'd bottle or can some of their hoppy beers, but I guess growlers are just part of the Hill Farmstead experience. Can't wait to come back!

Went there Oct 2015 on the day of a soft opening of their new tasting room. It's a bit of a drive but worth it. The Civil Disobedience #15 is great!

Quite the drive out to the farm. Beautiful hillside. Unfortunately our trip was a week before the new bar space was open. The staff was happy and helpful and the selection was surprisingly good. Worth the trip

Had the chance to visit in mid-November on Veterans Day. Got their shortly before 11am, was happy to have them open early (as appears to be somewhat the custom now) and made my way quickly through the bottle line. Made the rookie mistake of not sending one of our party over to grab a growler ticket as that line quickly grew and by the time we got our bottles we were 20 back from the current #. It took a little over an hour to get our turn and we enjoyed several samples and a cheese plate while we waited. Only minor disappointment is that they are limited (?) to only allowing one full pour during a visit. Which, if you're waiting an hour +, doesn't really cut it. Otherwise obviously the beers were great and the new tasting rooms is very nice. Selection was excellent for growler fills.

Crazy out of the way up in the mountains but very much worth the drive. The tasting room is very atmospheric and the views are gorgeous!

A long drive but not too long to visit the Mecca of east coast beer. The drive can actually be quite pleasant and beautiful through the rolling hills and forests and mountains of Vermont. Once you arrive it is a beautiful laid out property with a new bottle sale store and new tap room for growlers and select on-site pours. Once you go into the tap room it is not so friendly. Get in line, pick one beer and go. No tables, no chairs although there is a beautiful deck overlooking the Vermont countryside off to the side. The tap list was all IPA's which is fine if you are a hop head but was looking to try one of there outstanding saisons. Vary the tap list. Very disappointed in the vibe at the tap room.
