It’s almost time to raise your glass and toast the return of the Stowe Brewers Festival. One of the most popular annual festivals in Stowe is ready to kick off summer in The Green Mountain State in true hoppy style. Starting on Friday, June 28 and running through Sunday, June 30, this fun three-day event spotlights the best in brews, wines, spirits, and cocktails with an emphasis on our own local and vibrant craft brewery scene.

The Stowe Brewers Festival 2019 is an outdoor, rain or shine, event taking up the full expanse of Stowe Events Field. In similar fashion to other brew festivals, the event features four separate tasting sessions. With each standard admission acting as your specific four-hour session pass, you will receive a 3 oz. commemorative tasting glass and 15 tickets to sample the best brews from the over 40 brewers, cider makers, and meaders in attendance. Just like in years past at the other brew festivals in Stowe, this list will include some of the biggest names in the business like Angry Orchard Hard Cider to the smaller local outfits such as Zero Gravity Craft Brewery.

Being one of the top local summer festivals also means you can expect many food vendors, local artisans, and a bevy of live entertainment on hand to round out this event in true Vermontian style. Also, a fun new addition to the Stowe Brewers Festival this year is the Friday night karaoke contest. As this is an alcohol-inspired event, this is one of the Stowe festivals of the year that is only for those of legal drinking age (photo I.D. will be required).

Savor the flavor of this inherently Stowe, Vermont festival by booking your stay with us at the nearby Green Mountain Inn. Located less than a mile away from Stowe Events Field, convenience and comfort perfectly pair together to ensure your weekend is un-beer-lievable!
