Infinity Brewing in Vermont is brand new. They’re not even on the VT Passport yet. I had the honor of trying 8 of their beers in bottle form last weekend and I’m pretty impressed. No, they’re not all A+ OMFG awesome but for a new brewery that just opened, they’ve already started to do interesting […]

I sometimes get press releases about beer. This one arrived last night. Maybe someone out there cares. Here ya go: Hi Adam – First of all, I’m jealous of your dandelion experience at Hill Farmstead. Second, I was initially envious of your Rue D’Floyd & Floyd D’Rue bottles, but in reading the tasting notes am […]

I use Untappd on my iPhone but today I visited their site and it looks great! Nice update. Also, I’ve had Hill Farmstead beers at least 324 times and also, they don’t have 124 unique beers. That’s just not true.

Most of these I bookmark via Instapaper to use in blog posts but then I got busy and decided not to write a blog post around each of these and just link to them instead. I think they’re worth sharing with you all. Thanks. High Functioning: Craft Beer and Alcohol Beer Ratings and Best Beer […]

The immediate area around the existing structure consists of level, open land, with a number of existing trees, abutted by a dense, mix stand of forest land. The goal of Hill […]

  While I’m sure everyone is hating the volume of posts I’m making today, I just wanted to share some Vermont beer news. Sean Lawson who is a home brewer that’s licensed to sell beer (seriously, his setup is tiny) is releasing a beer this Saturday that’s so unique and so special  that you must […]

via Burlington Free Press: For folks who like an ice-cold brew on a hot summer day, but not just any brew will do, there’s a law for you. It allows you to order a couple of cases of your favorite craft “malted beverage” for shipment to your home — in the same way that wine-lovers […]

I was amazed to see this on the shelf while at HIll Farmstead today. This gorgeous and simple label of an early batch of Damon. There’s a story behind how this bottle was rediscovered that I’ll let Shaun Hill tell if he feels it’s appropriate. I got a kick out of it.  Beer: Hill Farmstead […]

By the end of next week we’ll have 40+ oak wine/port/bourbon barrels filled with SpontaneousFermentation, Oud Bruin and Buckwheat Rye Imperial Porter […]

Wow. Very close to what Stella is doing with glassware being the center of the advertisement. I know beer moderation is key but not Duvel drinker is as skinny as the guy in the ad. Oh well.

This is great. Untappd is a social service for checking into beers. It’s up to the user to only check in to beers they’re actually using since there’s no way to check the person is actually drinking a certain beer unless they share a photo. Either way, I like it a lot as it helps […]

Never underestimate great advertising. It’s unfortunate that Adrian Grenier of Entourage is a friend of one of my best friends but I just can’t hold back. I’m not going to say anything bad but the reviews do speak for themselves on RateBeer and BeerAdvocate. Watching the introduction video to this beer and it’s clear who exactly […]
