THE MAD RIVER VALLEY HAS CRAFTED A UNIQUE BEER TOUR PACKAGE
Vermont Microbrews, Discount Lodging, and a Designated Driver
(Waitsfield, VT) This fall craft beer enthusiasts can look forward to the last leaf dropping from the trees. Vermont’s Mad River Valley Chamber of Commerce has crafted its own “stick season” attraction in the form of a lodging & brewery tour package, Vermont Bed & Brew, an amazing Vermont Beer Festival. With multiple award-winning craft breweries within a short drive, the Mad River Valley is truly located in the middle of everywhere when it comes to craft beer.
Nestled along scenic Route 100 in the Green Mountains, the Mad River Valley is famous for its ski areas: Sugarbush and Mad River Glen. But, lately, it is internationally-acclaimed craft brewery Lawson’s Finest Liquids that has been attracting visitors in search of the elusive brewer’s ales. Lawson’s Double Sunshine IPA is ranked #10 out of 250 beers worldwide.
Just north on Route 100, The Alchemist brews & cans, the now famous, Heady Topper, only available in a 25-mile radius of Waterbury, Vermont. Beer Advocate currently has Heady Topper ranked as the #1 beer.
The Vermont Bed and Brew, the premier Vermont beer festival, tour is initially being offered for a limited time on Saturdays, November 10 – December 14, 2013. It requires a minimum 2-night weekend stay in a participating Mad River Valley lodging property and includes an all-day private 14-seat executive van tour of some of central Vermont’s craft breweries. While the location of Lawson’s Mad River Valley brewery is a well-kept secret, Bed & Brew guests will partake in a special off-site tasting. Following a surprise second stop in the Valley, the tour continues on to The Alchemist in Waterbury, Vermont. Continuing north, guests will be driven to two more select breweries then, returned back to their choice of lodging.
After a day of touring guests can take advantage of specials at local farm to table restaurants with these and many more craft beers on tap. The package price starts at $85 per person per night and is offered exclusively at madrivervalley.com/brew.
“Come for the mountains. Stay for the Valley.” is the tagline that explains how the Mad River Valley Chamber of Commerce often sees visitors who are lured for skiing, but then stay for the rest the Valley has to offer. With a dozen craft breweries less than an hour away and this fantastic Vermont Beer Festival, some are touting a revised mantra: “Come for the Beer. Stay for the Beer.”
The Mad River Valley Chamber of Commerce is a not-for-profit membership organization dedicated to improving the economic health of all the Mad River Valley businesses through cooperative efforts that benefit its members and greater business community. This includes serving as an information resource for residents and travelers as well as a destination marketing organization.
