Hill Farmstead LogoMore Flora with fruit? Yes, please. Hill Farmstead has another iteration of their wine barrel-aged farmhouse ale ready to roll, as Flora Blue/Black will hit the retail shelf on Wednesday, March 18 at noon. This beer spent a minimum of 12 months in oak, followed by an additional 3 months conditioning on fresh blueberries and black currants.

The details:

  • $17 per 375mL bottle
  • Limit 4 per person
  • Other available bottles – Biere de Norma, Anna, Convivial, Dorothy

Commercial description:

Flora is the wine barrel aged version of Florence (1915-1967), our grandfather’s sister as well as the name of our wheat farmstead ale. Only a few barrels were selected, and that beer was aged further on a blend of fresh, hand-picked blueberries and black currants from Greensboro and East Hardwick. The result is a complex, elegant, fruit-forward blend that both marries and highlights each of its constituent elements.

Hill Farmstead Brewery is located at 403 Hill Road in Greensboro, VT.
