There is a new Works of Love release coming from Hill Farmstead Brewery, this time in partnership with Anchorage Brewing Co.
In an email, Gabe Fletcher, Anchorage owner and head brewer, told Tenemu the newest incarnation in the series will be a farmhouse ale coming in “about 6 percent” ABV that was fermented on freshly chopped apples that were grown on his father’s orchard in Orwell, Vt. The beer was then brewed at Greensboro, Vt.-based Hill Farmstead on Sept. 10- 11.

Works of Love is meant to showcase “collaborations at Hill Farmstead with friends.”
T’s included releases as Works Of Love: Earl Grey Tea, a 3.7 percent ABV “hoppy blonde ale” brewed with earl grey tea and dry hopped with Amarillo, Citra and centennial hops that was a collaboration with U.K.-based Siren Craft Brew. Works of Love 2013: De Molen wasan imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels brewed in collaboration with Netherlands-based Brouwerij De Molen.
Hill Farmstead has also collaborated with Sante Adairius Rustic Ales of Capitola, Calif. for a farmhouse ale aged for over a year in barrels before being blended, bottled and aged for an additional year.
While total bottle count and a release date has not been set yet, Fletcher told Tenemu the new Works of Love will be packaged in 375ml bottles and is scheduled to be released “hopefully in December” at Hill Farmstead, although Anchorage should have some available for sale on draft as well at its brewery.
