Vermont Brewers Festival Preview: Liz’s Picks!

I am so excited to attend my second Brewfest on the beautiful shores of Lake Champlain! Here are my personal picks for what I want to try most. I’ll be teaming up with other people so that we can use our tickets as effectively as possible and have a little taste of as many beers as we can (although as the day goes on I have a feeling that system might deteriorate somewhat). If you’re going to the festival, have fun and be safe. If you didn’t get a chance to go this year, visit some of the participating breweries in person and show your support that way! Here’s a link to the Festival Guide so you can plan your own day:

beer 14th Star: Honey IPA, Maple City Wheat

Covered Bridge: Lucky Me

Fiddlehead: Hodad

Foley Brothers: Ginger Wheat

Hill Farmstead: Bliss of Absence

Kingdom Brewing: Benedict Arnold, Addy Pearls

Lawson’s Finest Liquids: Smoked Maple Lager, Toast Black IPA

Long Trail: Lemon Pepper Kolsch

Lost Nation: Gose, Petit Ardennes

We’ll be at the Saturday afternoon session, 11-3. Check back at Vermont on Tap after the festival to see what we thought of the selection and to leave your own comments about your experience. See you there!
