Make your way to City Hall Park, then kick off the tour with samples of craft sprits and cocktails at a nearby distillery tasting room. The next stop is a unique cider brewery in a creative neighborhood of artists studios and galleries: sample some of their unique hard ciders, then visit the brewery floor to see how the cider is made from scratch.
Continue to a nearby bagel shop that specializes in Montreal-style bagels, which are boiled with honey and baked in a wood-fired oven that imparts a distinctive taste—they're a world away from New York City.
Visit Burlington’s local chocolate factory on the southern end of Pine Street, where you can test your palate with a blind tasting, see chocolates produced on the factory floor, and shop for bargain ‘seconds’ in the factory gift shop. The final stop of the day is a beer tasting at a nearby brewery with European-style beers on tap; the tour concludes at the brewery, and the guide can assist in finding your way to the next stop on your Vermont itinerary.
