    Since Hill Farmstead is no longer holding official release events, please use this thread to post the bottles available on the shelves along with costs, sizes, limits, and so forth.

    It's OK to include the beers available in growlers too. Also, you can post new additions, for onsite consumption, in their tap room.

    As always, looking at the HF retail page
    http://www.hillfarmstead.com/retail/

    or calling the brewery
    802-533-7450

    are your best sources for up-to-date information.

    ** Updated bottle release policy: http://hillfarmstead.com/faq/retail-shop/what-is-the-bottle-release-policy.html. This FAQ has been updated on June 11, 2016 and they will ONLY accept a credit card/debit card accompanied by a valid, legal picture ID that matches the name on the credit card (this excludes generic Visa / MasterCard gift cards). This requirement is only for all special releases and barrel-aged beers. Read the entire linked page which explains the changes.

    To see what's available to drink (and eat) in their new tap room, click on the following link:

    http://hillfarmstead.com/onsite/

    There is a 2 drink limit (samples not included). Everything on tap is available to sample.

    The bottle shop stops selling bottles at 5:00 pm sharp. The tap room will stay open to fill growlers for the people who are inside already before 5:00 pm and are waiting for the staff to complete their order.

    The onsite bottles, for consumption in the tap room only, are NOT to leave the tap room. Please do NOT try to steal the empty bottles. Please respect the rules. Thank you.

    High abv beer bottles (ie Double Barrel Damon bottles) have to be split for on premises consumption. This is a strict rule. Please note that it's actually pretty easy to find people to split a beer up there (if you didn't bring anybody). Just say out loud that you are looking to split a DBD and you'll find takers. Enjoy.

    Food truck

    Food truck will be sticking around through December. They had a change of heart last weekend.

    Oysters should also be back at some point soon.


    @AutumnBeerLove, HF staff member, has been nice enough to respond to questions on this thread and to provide valuable updates like the following:

    I think it is mostly safe to say our new draft onsite location in retail will stick around for the summer, if not the potential busier days. This keeps growler waits at a maximum of an hour with an average wait of under 30 minutes for a day. Along with that, it keeps two employees in retail and thus has the bottles line moving too.

    Site was updated and BoT is still on it. Any chance it will last until open Thursday?

    I don't think the web site has been updated. I was there this afternoon. Susan was no longer on and Double Citra kicked around 2:00 pm. - both are still listed on the web site.

    Anyone have an idea what the stock is like for CD19, Arthur Puncheon and BoTK? Specifically the odds of any of them making it to Friday afternoon?

    The WoL has not been added yet, don't look at the home page, look at the retail section to know if the site was updated or not.

    I've been on vacation, so the site is a bit behind. Susan will be back to start the week along with the new works of Love beer. Double citra is gone.

    I was there on Saturday and it looked like they had a lot of CD19 left.

    Unfortunately, I didn't see where they were pulling the BoT bottles from, so I'm not sure. Same with Arthur Puncheon. There was a pallet labeled CD19 and it looked pretty full, which is why I think that one should last for a while.

    A bit off-topic:

    Heading up Saturday and plan to pick up a good amount of the retail shop bottles. We are then traveling across the border to Montreal for a few days before heading back home through VT again to CT. Anyone done this before and know if I will have a problem at the border crossing (either coming or going) if I have a box full of HF?

    Being american you're good coming in with beer you bought in the US so long as you declare it and say it's for personal consumption... Can't say about going back though

    I am doing this exact same thing in August and was wondering the same thing. I have a family member in Montreal that said you have to declare alcohol and pay a tax but not sure I trust that info. Would like to hear from someone that has real experience.

    Double Galaxy, the return of Conduct of Life, and a brand new IPA called "Three Magic Letters."

    Anyone have any beta on Three Magic Letters? Supposedly it utilizes Riwaka, not sure I've had a Riwaka dominate beer before.

    Susan uses Riwaka as well. Big notes of grapefruit in the flavor and aroma.

    Tagging along to this. I've never gone on a Saturday before. If there's nothing special going on, what is a typical crowd these days? Waits and parking issues or not too bad?
     
  37. JTCelica

    JTCelica Oct 12, 2014 Vermont

    Waits on a Saturday can be hit or miss. This time of year with the mud, it's much less busy. If you eliminate the cray busy times like brewfest weekend, etc. the waits are still very manageable and it gives you time to enjoy a drink or two and to soak up the beautiful landscape. There is ample parking, so that shouldn't be an issue.
