Interesting news from this small brewery that has major cult following. Have any of you ever had their beers? I wish I could get my hands on a bottle. This is courtesy of the New York Times.
Two weeks ago, a beer drinker in Fresno, Calif., called Hill Farmstead Brewery in Vermont to ask where he could buy its craft beers. “You have to drive to the airport, get a ticket, fly to Burlington, rent a car and drive an hour and a half to the brewery,” the owner, Shaun Hill, replied with a laugh. But he wasn’t joking.
Wow, this really makes it hard for us to get this beer, being all the way on the other side of the continent.
Hill Farmstead, in the hamlet of Greensboro, produces just 60,000 gallons of beer annually. The beer is available for purchase only at the brewery and in roughly 20 Vermont bars. In addition, Mr. Hill sends 12 kegs to distributors in New York City and Philadelphia a few times a year.
Okay, so now any hope of it coming to San Diego has been crushed. Any readers in Vermont want to set up a trade for some West Coast beers? Pliny? Alpine?
