"It's the beer that doesn't taste right that forces you to examine what it is that you're doing."
- Shaun Hill, Founder and Brewmaster of Hill Farmstead Brewery
Hill Farmstead Brewery was recently named “Best Brewery in the World” by RateBeer, the largest, most popular beer review and rating website. It’s the third time that this small, and exclusive (their beer is only available in Vermont) craft brewery in Greensboro has taken that title. But out of over 22,500 entrants, what makes Hill Farmstead superlative? Huffman Studio gained rare access to the man behind that question, Hill Farmstead founder and chief brewer Shaun Hill— a notoriously media shy recluse. In this exclusive portrait of a master brewer, Hill opens up about the struggles and satisfactions of pursuing perfection. Hill’s dedication to balancing the art of discovery with exacting standards is at the heart of this brewery’s phenomenal growth from a one-room operation to the premier destination for beer lovers from around the globe.
