When the weather warms up the beer tastes that much better. At least that’s what I always tell myself. So the good news for all you beer aficionados out there is that our Brew-Grass Festival is back for another summer on Saturday, June 4th.
A Sugarbush summer mainstay, this year we’re switching things up a little bit. In addition to twelve 5-ounce pours and a souvenir glass, each attendee will also be given lunch from a variety of options including 802 Burrito, The Lunchbox, and a barbeque station (view full menus here). We’re also changing the format of the event to be more open. Similar to our Fresh Hops Fest last fall, the Courtyard will be open to the public during the event, so friends and family who don’t have a ticket are welcome to just come and hang out or get their own food and drink from one of our open restaurants. Attendees will have a their own punch tickets that they can walk around each station with.
We have 11 brewers confirmed for Brew-Grass this year, with 10 of them from Vermont and the other from Portland, Maine. They are as follows:
Lawson’s Finest Liquids (Waitsfield, VT)
Weird Window Brewing (South Burlington, VT)
Fiddlehead Brewing Company (Shelburne, VT)
14th Star Brewing Co. (St. Albans City, VT)
Goodwater Brewery (Williston, VT)
Black Flannel Brewing Co. (Essex Junction, VT)
Outer Limits Brewing (Proctorsville, VT)
Lone Pine Brewery Company (Portland, ME)
Switchback Brewery Company (Burlington, VT)

Eden Specialty Ciders (Newport, VT)
There will also be live music from The Mad Mountain Scramblers across the four hours. Concerned about having too good a time and needing to drive? We’re offering 30% off one- and two-night stays over the weekend.
This is one of the best events around this summer, and if you haven’t attended one in the past, now would be the time. Tickets are available here. I look forward to cheersing you that weekend!
