On Wednesday, Hill Farmstead Brewery is releasing the newest version of its farmhouse ale that was “inspired by our love for New Zealand.”
That creation is Juicy, a dry-hopped “Farmstead® ale” that has been aged in wine barrels for 10 months with the brewery’s microflora before being bottled. The ale was first released in 2012, with the last incarnation coming in June 2018, although that version was packaged in 750ml bottles instead of 375ml bottles as had historically been the case.
“Juicy is inspired by our love for New Zealand—the adventures had therein, and the journeys grown from without,,” reads a post on Hill Farmstead’s website. “Our love for the landscape, the agriculture, and the spirited reflection of its inhabitants a decade ago has led to the vision of what lies before you.”
According to a post on Hill Farmstead’s website, Juicy 2019 is packaged in 750ml bottles ($33) and will have a two bottle per person purchase limit when it is released on Jan. 23.
