From Hill Farmstead:
On Wednesday, October 5, we're pleased to release two beers!
First, we are releasing this year's batch of Fear and Trembling.
500ml, $9 per bottle.
Fear and Trembling was Hill Farmstead's first collaboration—a Baltic-style porter originally brewed with malt that was hand-smoked over maple wood by our Danish friend, and former colleague, Anders Kissmeyer. This batch was brewed with malt that was hand-smoked onsite over a blend of native woods, then fermented in the traditional way, with lager yeast, and conditioned in stainless steel. 9% abv
Second, we are releasing Flora with Peaches and Pears.
375ml, $17, 2 bottles per person (credit card and matching ID required, please see our bottle release policy).
Flora is the wine barrel-aged version of Florence (1915-1967), our grandfather's sister as well as the name of our Farmstead wheat ale. A few barrels were selected—a portion of the beer was aged further on Vermont dessert pears, while another portion was aged on ripe northeast peaches. The independent threads were blended, resulting in a complex, delicate and slightly tart Bière de Table—an ale we would proudly have shared with Florence.
