Temperatures are on the rise and clouds are beginning to subside, just in time Sugarbush’s 9 th Annual Brew-Grass Festival this weekend! Right now forecasts are calling for sunny skies and temps in the low 70s.
If you don’t know about our beer festival, Brew-Grass continues to stand out from other beer tasting events by staying true to having Vermont-only beers. Brew-Grass is an awesome opportunity to meet local brewers and taste why Vermont is one of the best states in the nation for craft beer. Vermont continues be ranked in the top 10 states for best craft brews and our Brew-Grass festival was originated to showcase exactly that. With 23 confirmed brewers attending the event, such as Lawson’s Finest Liquids and Fiddlehead, there is going to be quite the selection of brews available for tasting, suitable for any pallet. Don’t let not liking beer stop you from buying a ticket – there are non-beer options like cider as well! You could even buy a non-drinker ticket and hang out at Castlerock Pub drinking wine or a summer cocktail.
Although beer is always good by itself, it never hurts to have delicious food to go along with it. This year, enjoy local food options from Sugarbush Wood Fired Pizza, Castlerock Pub, Googs Wood Fired Fare, Cornerstone Catering and the Good Companion Pretzel Cart. Chow down on tasty local eats while listening to jammin’ bluegrass bands, all based out of Vermont! The music schedule is as follows:
2:00 – 3:20 Danny Coane and His Blue Grass Buddies
3:20 - 4:40 Fiddle Witch
4:40 – 6:00 Mad Mountain Scramblers
The good times and music will roll on all afternoon long, but if you’re thinking you won’t want the fun to stop at six, be sure to check out our lodging deals specifically for festival goers. Discounts are available for Brew-Grass attendees, so avoid dealing with transportation after the event and be sure to take advantage of our on-site lodging. Check out our Brew-Grass specials here .
