Brewery: Hill Farmstead Brewery
Style: Farmhouse Saison
Other Notes: Farmstead ale brewed with honey
Brewer Description: (from bottle) Anna (1902-1993) was Edward’s sister; Hill Farmstead Brewery rest upon the land that was once home to her and her 13 siblings. In her honor, this honey Farmstead® ale is crafted from organic American malted barley, European and American hops, Vermont wildflower honey, our distinctive farmhouse yeast and water from our well. Unfiltered and naturally carbonated, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Anna.
