Share article

GREENSBORO BEND – Hill Farmstead Brewery is joining forces with the Alchemist Brewery in Stowe, to produce a beer to raise funds for Vermont flood relief. The new beer will be available exclusively at Hill Farmstead beginning today.

The special-edition beer, available in limited quantities for a limited time, is being created in response to the devastating floods that struck Vermont on July 10. The funds raised, approximately $65,000, will be distributed to a variety of statewide flood relief funds, including the Vermont Community Foundation’s Vermont Flood Response & Recovery Fund 2023, Capstone’s small business-focused Vermont Main Street Flood Recovery Fund, and NOFA’s Farmer Emergency Fund.

This collaboration is borne out of the deep affection the owners of both breweries have for each other and Vermont. John and Jen Kimmich, founders of the Alchemist, and Hill Farmstead owner Shaun Hill have collaborated for years to advance the independent craft brewing industry in Vermont. The Vermont Flood Relief IPA is an American IPA conceived and created to showcase each brewery’s iconic and pioneering flavor profiles within an intentional, harmonious representation of the deep and abiding friendship shared between our breweries.

Says Hill Farmstead founder Shaun Hill, “We are living in unprecedented times with unpredictable circumstances. The people, the places, and the businesses that we love and constitute our Vermont have been crippled. Business has a responsibility to give back and support the continued resilience of the people that form the foundations of its community. This effort with Jen, John, and the Alchemist team is one of many ways that we are committed to our communities and the continuing recovery efforts.”

Hill Farmstead is open for retail purchases Wednesday through Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., 403 Hill Road in Greensboro Bend.
