What To Expect

Meet on Cherry Street, hop on the Brew Bus and learn about the colorful characters and history of the Vermont brewing scene as you make your way to three breweries or pubs. Enjoy guided tastings at each spot, so you can learn as you drink—spots on this route include Vermont Pub and Brewery, Magic Hat Brewing Company, Fiddlehead Brewing, Queen City Brewery, Switchback Brewing Co., Zero Gravity Craft Brewery and Three Needs Brewery and Tap Room. 

This is the perfect chance to chat with brewery owners about their operations and learn more about the equipment used to make beer and the brewing process. Follow your favorite beers on their trip from grain to glass, while tasting your way through some of the state’s most iconic IPAs, lagers and stouts.

Both daytime and evening tours include a snack at one of your brewery stops. Get tips on the best places to pick up hard-to-find brews while in Vermont.

1st Republic Brewing Co

These breweries are sample itineraries only. All schedules are subject to change. The founders of 1st Republic Brewing, Shawn Trout and Mike Drake, both served on active duty and with distinction overseas before returning to Vermont to serve up some of the best Veteran crafted brews. In fact, 1st Republic was voted 2018’s VT Veteran Owned Small Business of the Year. They love everything about beer from brewing it to drinking it to teaching about it and to sharing it. Friends, family, and beer lovers can gather ’round the taproom for fun, games, locally delivered food, and raising a glass to good beer and good times.

Queen City Brewery

Founded in 2014 by long-time friends and brewers Paul Hale, Paul Held, Phil Kaszuba, and Maarten van Ryckevorsel, Queen City Brewery brews a variety of traditional ales and lagers, as well as several unique specialty beers with a focus on giving the customer a unique experience with unexpected notes in their beers that they’ve aged and fermented to produce complex flavors unlike anything you’ve ever tasted. (So yeah, we’re pretty much changing your life by bringing you here. No need to thank us.) On our tour, you’ll see why this foursome rose to frothy success as you sip your way through their suds, including a rare style they brew call ‘Steinbeer’ that’s brewed with hot rocks. The process grants less temperature control to the brewer and imparts a smoky, caramel flavor. Yep, we’ll say it again: life-changing.
