    Recently - enjoyed it on Friday. From an old keg I assume?

    I drank the hell out of it. It was glorious. Only beer I had multiples of during the trip.

    Also - was nice getting to know all you BAs on the Forums. I will be in my hole awaiting retribution if anyone needs me.

    No announcement, but it looks like Nordic Saison was added to the bottle list this week.

    When HF crowds/lines/hype were at their worst a few years ago, I occasionally worried that Shaun would go full Willy Wonka, put up a big iron gate on Hill Road and just brew beer for himself and the Oompa Loompas.

    Yup. There has been a lull in limited releases this summer and it prompted me to do a retrospective investigation. It looks like there were similar lulls this time each of the last two years, so maybe something to keep in mind for travelers next summer?

    Saw Karma Emulsion on untappd, which I have not seen since they've been canning. I think it's safe to assume that you will find cans when you go up there. Best bet is to look at the draft list and figure two or three will be in can form as well.

    Would anyone have any idea how long Civil Disobeience (being released this wednesday) may last, base on past experience? Thanks very much in advance

    I'm bring my dog up there on Friday and I know he's not allowed in the tasting room. Have they added any picnic tables or chairs in the grass area? It's been about a year since I've been. I am just looking for a place to sit with my dog and have a couple tastings while I wait

    They have picnic tables outside. Sounds like you'll have a great time

    For a very long time now releases have lasted at least a week and multiple weeks in many cases. Considering they are closed on Sautrday this week I think it's a safe bet that this will last into next week

    This might be kind of a dumb question, but we're staying in Craftsbury and won't be able to make it to Greensboro before HF closes that day. Is there anywhere else in the area to grab some HF (restaurant or retail)? If not, no big deal as we plan on visiting the brewery the next day, but it'd be nice to grab some good beers before settling in for the night.

    For sure. I do not know the area super well, but Parker Pie in Glover usually (always?) has HF on draft. Also, depending on where you are coming from, it's usually on at certain bars all over Burlington/Waterbury/Stowe etc.

    You can often find bottles at Willey's store right in Greensboro. Check their hours for the day.

    Ah ok, we'll be coming up from Boston and it looks like most of those places are west of where we'll be. We'll see how the drive goes but Parker Pie looks like a good dinner option for at least one of the nights we'll be there. Thanks!
    Nice, I will check that out. Thanks!

    Can confirm, Wiley's store does have bottles and lots of them but only the non-limited sour releases. Also if you go to parker pies get the Green Mountain Special. Just do it. You won't regret it. Might be busy (peak summer hours get up to 2 hour wait on pizzas) there saturday/friday night. Not a bad idea to call ahead and order ahead for eat in and tell them when you'll be there. Shouldn't be that busy but definitely won't be empty. Better to call it safe. I think the Craftsbury General store (the one closer to pete's green's) should still have Wunderkrammer bottles which is a side project of one of the assistant brewer. Pete's greens in Craftsbury is super cool too, great produce. Also the Highland Lodge has Hill Farmstead on tap as well.

    You could stop at the Kingdom Taproom in St. Johnsbury on the way. They always have a few HF brews on tap as well as a good amount of other good local/national craft brews.

    I second King Taproom. Routinely go there and they always have Hill Farmstead on tap. Not sure when you're coming up @chazmcbro, but, I saw, for example, Edward, Society and Solitude, Abner, all listed as either on tap or coming up when I was there Saturday. Enjoy your trip!

    That's awesome, our AirBnB is right by the Craftsbury General Store, and we noticed they sold beer, but didn't know what kind of selection they'd have. I'll be sure to look for the Wunderkrammer. Parker Pies is in the plans, but we'll be staying Wed & Thurs. evenings, so I'm not terribly worried about crowds. Highland Lodge looks super cool, maybe should've stayed there instead!

    Kingdom Taproom is a great call and not far out of our way at all. In fact, I put their location into google maps and somehow it's less time than it would be Boston to Craftsbury...weird, but I'll take it as a sign.

    Takes me back to Philly beer week circa 2012 I want to say, met Shaun at Farmers Cabinet and then went to Butcher and Brewer where they had 14 HF beers on tap. Yeah the owner of those fine establishments then forged his liquor license and needless to say they are no longer around...

    The return of Double Galaxy! So excited to have this again, probably a top (D)IPA for me. @AutumnBeerLove, do you know if this will last the week? Also, will there be cans despite the short week? Thanks!
