If Everyday Was Brew Fest, We’d Have World Peace
Hop heads congregated to celebrate wheat’s sweet nectar this past Friday and Saturday at the Vermont Brewers Festival. Drawing over 10,000 people to Burlington–many of which travel in from out-of-state–the Vermont Brewers Festival is an adult carnival.
With a glass and fifteen tickets in hand, attendees of this nearly sold-out festival explored 45 breweries. And while several out-of-state brewers participated, it was our own Vermont brewers drawing most traffic. Lines wrapped around corners, fans went back for seconds, entire inventories wiped out in less than two hours–Vermont mounted its throne as Craft King this weekend.
And when attendees weren’t waiting in line for a renown IPA, they were filling plates with locavore grub, stocking up on Vermont Flannel apparel, playing cornhole, listening to live music and taking in the intoxicating waterfront backdrop.
Vermont Brewers Association Satisfies Our Craft Beer Needs Year Round
The Vermont Brewers Festival unites beer connoisseurs, social gatherers and novice experimenters to celebrate the thriving beer culture happening right here in the Green Mountains. Because Vermont is arguably best explored through its breweries, the Vermont Brewers Festival lets you experience all Vermont’s flavorful sites in a convenient few hour time span.
Did you miss the festival or are you already hankering another beer haven? The Vermont Brewers Association will be hosting a winter brewfest in Killington this March. Stay tuned to our events calendar and Facebook for updates.
