Sugarbush Brew-Grass 2016 Craft Beer Festival!

Sugarbush Brew-Grass 2016 Craft Beer FestivalGet ready for the 6th annual return of the Mad River Valley’s popular, craft beer festival: Sugarbush Brew-Grass 2016. Scheduled for Saturday, June 11 and promising more great beer, food, and music!

Held each year at the Sugarbush Resort in Vermont’s Mad River Valley, the Sugarbush Brew-Grass Festival is rapidly becoming a beloved tradition – and why not? Tastings of regional craft beers, ciders, and distilled liquors, fresh and fabulous food from local restaurants, plus live Bluegrass music from area bands.

If you had to find something to complain about, here, it might be that this is an annual, not a bi-annual or more often, festival!

Sugarbush Brew-Grass 2016 includes a few new events:

Kick-Off Party
Fri, Jun 10, 5pm to 10pm – Castlerock Pub Patio, Lincoln Peak
Kick-off the weekend with a free party featuring live music from The Grift, fresh pizza form the pizza oven, a classic cornhole tournament, and some of the region’s favorite brewers.

Post-Brewgrass Golf Scramble:
Sun, Jun 12, 10am – Sugarbush Resort Golf Club
The Post-Brewgrass Golf Scramble is a 9-hole golf tournament, with prizes at an awards ceremony following the tournament at Hogan’s Pub, which will be featuring a selection of 16 oz. craft beers. Participants can compete as part of a team or individually.
