Vermont leads the country in breweries per capita. Everywhere you turn, there is another Vermont brewery to explore. Abundant in location and taste, Vermont breweries are prolific, award-winning and a must-do on any craft beer lover’s itinerary.
Taking a craft beverage tasting journey through the state doesn’t end at breweries either. Vermont cideries are just as sought-after, spirited and delectable. Celebrate the official state fruit with a dynamic and refreshing cider.
Looking for a great place to explore these ciders and brews? Head to a pub or bar where you’ll find a refreshing representation of Vermont crafts, creative cocktail menus and scrumptious bites.
