Wednesday will bring two new versions of beers that fans of Hill Farmstead Brewery have seen before.
The first new release is Juicy, a farmhouse ale that has been aged in wine barrels for “more than a year” with the brewery’s microflora before being bottled in Dec. 2016. The ale was first released in 2012, with the last incarnation coming on Jan. 6, 2016, although that version was aged in wine barrels for almost two years.
“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.”
The second new beer is Genealogy of Morals – Coffee Collective: Akmel Nuri, an imperial wheat stout aged in “select bourbon barrels” for 20 months before being conditioned on Akmel Nuri’s Ethiopian coffee beans that were sourced and roasted by The Coffee Collective in Copenhagen, Denmark. The new stout uses the Greensboro, Vt.-based brewery’s Genealogy of Morals as its base, which debuted in 2012.
While both Juicy & Genealogy of Morals – Coffee Collective: Akmel Nuri are packaged in 375ml bottles priced at $18 and $20 respectively, Juicy will have a four bottle limit per person while Genealogy of Morals will have a one bottle per person limit when they go on sale on Jan. 11.
