KILLINGTON, Vt. – For the last 25 years, the Vermont Brewers Association has been running a successful brewers’ festival on the waterfront in Burlington. New for 2018, on March 24, the brewers are getting together to create a special collaboration festival outdoors at the picturesque mountain setting of Killington Resort.
This smaller, more intimate festival, will have 30 Vermont brewers for a one day event with two sessions to choose from, noon – 3 p.m. and 4 – 7 p.m. Attendees will sample special beers in varying pour sizes, meet the brewers, and enjoy food trucks and fire pits at the base of the K-1 lodge.
This is the only festival created and hosted by the brewers. Tickets are on sale now at www.vtbrewfest.com. All proceeds from the event will support the Vermont Brewers Association, a nonprofit founded in 1995 to promote and strengthen the culture of craft brewing in Vermont through marketing, education, and advocacy for Vermont made beer. Vermont has more breweries per capita than any other state and produces an average of 17.4 gallons per 21+ adult annually. The Vermont Brewers Association was founded in 1995 to promote and strengthen the culture of craft brewing in Vermont through marketing, education and advocacy for Vermont made beer. Our industry supports 1,890 jobs and has an overall economic impact of nearly $376.7 million. Visit www.vermontbrewers.com.
