I never thought I would be a beer drinker. I’ve always been happy with girly pink drinks and classic cocktails, but beer was never my beverage of choice–until I studied in Dublin, Ireland for a semester. Not to drink beer there would have been a sin, and thinking back to the fresh-from-the-source pints enjoyed at local pubs is one of the things I miss most.
So, after touring the world famous Guinness factory and developing a taste for malty, hoppy goodness, I realized I hadn’t explored the world class breweries in my own backyard. Vermont is the state with the highest concentration of craft breweries per capita–we have a brewery for every 26,073 people!
I want to truly take advantage of this unique opportunity, so I am taking on the Vermont Brewers Association’s Vermont Breweries Passport Challenge. That means visiting 27 breweries and getting a stamp at each one to prove I made the trip.
I can’t wait to sample, compare, and savor the unmatched range of incredible beers this state has to offer. Follow me on my quest!
