What makes a 26-year-old mother of two pile her entire family into a car and drive for hours from Connecticut to Greensboro Bend, Vt.?
Beer, of course. The Hill Farmstead Brewery in Greensboro Bend is said to brew the best beer in America. One recent weekend, I met a young woman from Stonington, Conn., who drove clear across New England to sample delicious craft beer there. Sadly, she sat defeated at the Hyde Away Tavern in nearby Waitsfield, having missed the brewery’s open hours by minutes. Not all was lost: Sitting at the bar, nursing a can of Heady Topper ale, she was busy making plans to visit a restaurant down the road that pours Hill Farmstead on tap.
