Notes: Civil Disobedience 2020 is a blended barrel-aged Farmstead® ale. This singular iteration weaves threads into a unified tapestry from a variety of wine barrels—ranging between 10 and 15 months—including Anna®, an experimental and still unreleased wheat Farmstead® ale, Nelson Sauvin (which became Self-Reliance), and more. This beer was dry-hopped with Hallertau Mittelfrüh, Cascade, and Saaz, then bottle conditioned for 10 months prior to release.

All proceeds (100%) from the sale of this edition will go to organizations that directly support the efforts of those on the front lines of change, battling racism and tyranny despite the risks and danger, through the entirety of the release to the following organizations:

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund; The Innocence Project; and Know Your Rights Camp.

This one pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color, with a fluffy head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like white wine and white grape, Hill's signature citrusy/grassy funk, lemon/lime, honey, and oak.

I really like the emphasis on these dry-hopped farmhouse ales Hill has been in on lately. This is so bright and vibrant, with that bone dry white wine funk, citrusy goodness, some lime peel, oak, and a distinct white grape thing that's either Nelson in the blend or just the funk that's being created.

This is light bodied, soft and so clean, and really drinkable. It feels just about perfectly blended.

I'm a big fan of the idea behind this release - Hill Farmstead does really being both a conscientious and justice-minded brewery, while also obviously brewing absolutely delicious beers.
