2013 Ratebeer Top 100 Breweries in the World
“Of the nearly 14,000 brewers in the world, Hill Farmstead Brewery was judged by hundreds of thousands of beer reviewers worldwide as being the best in the world. Hill Farmstead not only took the top slot, but for the first time in the 11-year history of the contest, the top brewer ran away with it. This was ‘The (First?) Year Of Hill Farmstead’ where Hill Farmstead not only won Top Brewer but also dominated the New Releases top 10 (8 out 10 top new 2012 releases) and took a record 31 awards in the Best Beers By Style list." - Joe Tucker, Executive Director, RateBeer
