I am excited to announce the first annual Brattleboro Brewers Festival and Pub Crawl on May 21st and 22nd is taking place in our hometown of Brattleboro, VT. This is no doubt going to be a killer event with 40 breweries, live music, great food, and an education tent sponsored by HerefortheBeer.com
We think perhaps the North End Business association (the host) was off their rocker when they agreed to allow Tim and I to recruit the Breweries and select the beers for this event.
You will be able to sample some of your favorites like Harpoon IPA & UFO, BBC’s Steel Rail, Dogfish Head 90 Minute and Allagash White just to name a few. However, you will also be able to sample some never before released beers such as McNeill’s Amerillo Billo and Lawson’s Finest Liquids Oak-Aged Bourbon Barrel-style Fayston Maple Imperial Stout.
Are you into cask conditioned beers? Well we have those too, try Victory Hop Wallop and Portsmouth Brewery’s Le Chat Noir Black, again just to name a few. How about some of the new guys like Maine Beer Company, The Trapp Family Lodge, Hill Farmstead, Petty Things Beer & Ale Project, and Element Brewing Co… Go ahead let you self start to get a little excited, that’s okay…because I am not done yet. Are you into IPA’s? We’ll have more then 15 IPA’s including McNeill’s Warlord, Longtrail’s Brewmaster’s Series Double IPA and Stone’s Ruination. Maybe session beers are your thing. Well we have over 60 of them coming to the festival including several from High and Mighty Beer Co. and Switchback Ale. And if you are still not sold, come to this festival to sample Vermont beers from the 13 Vermont Breweries attending.
Now that I have your attention we can talk a little about all of the other great things this event has to offer. As you know we have an inn in Brattleboro and so some of our local favorites will be involved such as live music by Terrapin Island and The Peter Miles Band. You can munch on some great foods from the Vermont Country Deli, Top of the Hill Grill and North End Butchers. If your friends are not sure about craft beer or maybe would just like to learn a little more about craft beer send them over the the Here for the Beer education tent at 2pm. Tim will be providing an introductory session on craft beer. Sample 5 different styles and let him help you figure out what you do and don’t like when it comes to beer so you can make better choices for yourself.
All I have left to say is buy your tickets now! You can do that directly on our website or purchase them locally at the locations shown on the website.
We would love your help to spread the word and help us sell the remaining tickets available. So if it is not an imposition send this on to your beer loving family, friends and fans. If you would like to stay will us at Forty Putney Road B&B we would love to have you call us at 802-254-6268.
