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

Porter-like in appearance and mouthfeel. Big roast. Hops add plenty of bitterness. Interesting take on a brown ale that was certainly delicious. Well paired with beef stew to combat the bitterness and enhance the roast and malt.

Montrealbcr89 left me this and some other crappy beers while I was out the other day. I poured it into a fancy schmanzy HF stem ...which he also gave to me a while back. Guy just keeps unloading his unwanted junk on me. I'm polite and just smile and say thanks.

Deep brown in the glass, finger of off-white head that fades to a persistent skim. Nose is caramel, roasted cashews and pistachios, toasty dark malts, toffee and a little milk chocolate.

Tons of flavor for the style. Caramel, toasted malts, lightly nutty, traces of coffee and chocolate, and a decent bitterness in the hoppy finish. Medium body, smooth medium+ carbonation.

Wasn't expecting that hoppy bite in the finish but really diggin' it! Thanks bro.
