    Shaun generously gave me the opportunity to photograph Hill Farmstead a couple weeks ago. I just posted the results today if you're interested in checking it out:


    I've had the good fortune of visiting numerous breweries, but must say Hill Farmstead is my overall favorite to date. It really is a uniquely authentic place, in an amazing location with genuine passionate people making truly great beer.

    If you haven't been, its worth the trip. If you live nearby, you're a luck bastard.

    Nice pics. I was up there that day (Friday the 14th I believe). Shaun was brewing some Saison with dried hibiscus (and ginger maybe? I can't recall, it was the beginning of a great beer-cation) that day. Very cool brewery, I agree and I wish it was closer...

    Man!! I absolutely love viewing your photos over and over again. Of course, that's partially due to the brew porn, but I admire your style and enjoy dabbling in photography. Keep them coming! Cheers

    I really like your ground shots and I'm impressed that you got to shoot a piece of the whole operation. I still remember going up for the first release. My how it's grown...

    Definitely saw you taking pictures on the 14th as well. You should have taken a few after that little bit of snow started falling. HF looks great in the snow. And damn just looked at your beer photos. Seems you were ahead of us in line at the farmers market before the changed the limits from 6 to 4
