Hill Farmstead takes over the Capital Region

Nuzzy pouring Hill Farmstead Arthur at The Ruck
Capital Region folks, unless you were living under a rock, you know that a handful of kegs from one of my favorite breweries made their way to the taps of a few of bars in the area last week. Two kegs of Arthur and two kegs of Everett were tapped, and each of the places I visited kicked their kegs in a couple of hours or less. I’m not going to get too wordy here, although you should check out Greg’s post on the topic.

Madison Pour House
The Pour was the first to tap their keg and the usual cast of characters were there to get their Arthur on.

The Ruck
Nuzzy was manning the tap in the picture at the top of the post and as you can see, our table did our part on kicking the Everett keg. Not pictured: an obscene amount of wings consumed.

The Bier Abbey
Naturally we had to step it up a little bit at The Bier Abbey on day 2. Brobro, Mike and myself all brought a few bottles to celebrate Arthur on tap.

I did not make it up to Henry Street but I’m sure their keg of Everett did not sit around. This was without a doubt monumental for the Capital Region craft beer scene and I was happy to be apart of it. Thank you to Craft Beer Guild for making this happen. Hopefully this is a sign of great things to come for the Capital Region, and with any luck we’ll be able to get some more Hill Farmstead flowing through these taps on a regular basis.

  1. sorry for the potential dup comment:

    what is the best way to keep abreast of upcoming events like this? your rss feed doesnt show events just posts.

    do you twitter them?

    1. Hey Tom, I try to keep the calender updated at the link at the top of my page. The Hill Farmstead kegs were tough since we found out about them the day before they were delivered, and then tapped them hours after delivery. All of the bars who got it made a point to make a post or two about the kegs on their Facebook pages, including us at The Bier Abbey. There is a Facebook group for the Capital Region beer geeks as well.
