Bluejacket Moving On Without Head Brewer

Bluejacket Moving On Without Head Brewer

Megan Parisi is no longer the head brewer at Bluejacket, as the two have amicably parted ways only three months after the brewery’s official opening. Megan, formally of Cambridge Brewing Company, spent the better part of the year spreading the Bluejacket name by brewing collaborations with everyone from Cigar City in Florida, The Bruery and Stone in California to De Struise in Belgium–experience that Bluejacket won’t be quick to recreate.

Hill Farmstead Twilight of the Idols

Hill Farmstead Twilight of the Idols

So, I’m pretty sure that readers are going to end up hating me, because I review beers that aren’t readily available on the East coast… or really, anywhere aside from relatively close to where they are brewed.  Much to your chagrin (or maybe happiness if you travel to places where it’s available…), this post is going to be the beginning of a mini series on beers from Hill Farmstead brewery in Greensboro, VT. I was lucky … Read entire article »
