We are happy to say that the first ever Brattleboro Brewers Festival was this past weekend and it was a great time. 40 breweries were represented, with many brewmasters and owners actually coming out to show their support and pour. Big breweries and small came together with great music from local favorites Peter Miles and Terrapin Island as well as great food from Vermont Country Deli (who actually created 7 dishes with beers from the festival), North End Butchers and Top of the Hill Grill. Thankfully the weather held out and it was a beautiful day for a festival.
Check out our video to see a quick overview of the event (we were pretty busy during and didn’t get to give it a real “HereForTheBeer” production). There is also a great series of photos of the festival taken by Mallory Finnley over on her Flickr page.
If you were able to come out for the fest, we would love to know your thoughts – post a comment here or on facebook. If you didn’t make it this year, we hope that you will be able to make it next year. Keep an eye on the Brattleboro Brew Fest website or right here on Here for the Beer for the details. Cheers!
Wow this looked like a really good time. Next year I will be there with bells on. I am not a fan of being out of town when good things are going on! I noticed Tod Mott in the video so it was good to see some Portsmouth representation there.
Looks like it was an amazing time. I’ll have to keep my eye on it as it gets bigger and better!
Really wished I was able to make it. (I actually went through Brattleboro a week later – oh well) Anyway, congrats on pulling it off and hoping for more successful events in the years to come!
We hope to see you there next year!
Good weather, good beer, good food, good music…
It is a kind of Paradise, definitely… :)
