Anna (1902-1993) was our grandfather’s sister; Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to her and her 13 siblings. In her honor, this Farmstead® ale was dry-hopped with Motueka™ hops grown by Freestyle Farms in Upper Moutere, New Zealand. Unfiltered and naturally carbonated, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Anna.
Cherry: We selected a puncheon and several wine barrels of Flora and aged it on a blend of Balaton and Montmorency cherries from the 2018 harvest year, all grown at Burtt's Orchard in Cabot, Vt. 375ml
Raspberry: Flora is the wine barrel-aged version of Florence, Edward’s sister as well as the name of our Farmstead® wheat ale. We selected barrels of Flora and aged it atop fresh raspberries from Fisher Brothers Farm in Shelburne, Vt.
