Several years ago the distribution system The Alchemist implemented limited any legal retail access to their products to a 25 mile radius of their brewery.
Hill Farmstead beers are only distributed to on-premise establishments (aka bars) but sometimes, once a year we are lucky enough to receive bottles.
The delivery schedule is on alternating Mondays (every two weeks), adjusted for holidays when they conflict with the expected arrival. It is released at noon, and goes quickly so check our calendar to see when the next lucky Monday is.
If you haven’t had a growler fill with us before, all it takes to get started is $5 for the bottle and any fill price for the beer you’d like to take home. Each time you bring back the growler in a functional condition (no cracks or broken glass) you can continue to trade in your empty bottle for a fresh clean one. The deposit is the same on both the 32oz and 64oz bottles so you can change fill sizes whenever you need to. If you’ve decided you need a break from the convenience of your growler just let us know, and when you turn in your bottle we’ll give you the $5 deposit back.
Legally we have to supply you with a sanitary growler at the time of your purchase, which means you can add our stores’ growler to your collection!
