Tap Into Vermont’s Craft Beer Scene

Vermont brewers are emerging as some of the most innovative and entrepreneurial crafters on the American beer scene, if not the world. Discover what the Green Mountain state has to offer with this recently released guidebook, FarmPlate Vermont Beer: Behind the Scenes with Vermont Craft Brewers, published by FarmPlate and distributed in partnership with Chelsea Green.

Back in the mid-1980s, Vermont microbreweries were just starting out. “Craft beer was a fringe thing—it was a missionary like movement brought to be by a few renegades who had traveled abroad and discovered that beer could be different, very different from what we’d all grown up with. It was a revelation,” writes Phil Markowski, brewmaster for Two Roads Brewing Co., in the book’s introduction.

Since then, microbreweries and craft beers have become increasingly popular and are now considered part of the American mainstream. “Today, Vermont is home to some of the most sought-after craft beers in the country, many of which seem to unknowingly break new ground. So good … if you can get them!” writes Markowski. “A few are deliciously rare and hard to find (literally take the dirt road to the right and then turn left at the tractor), only adding to their mystique.”

With FarmPlate’s guidebook in hand, you won’t miss a single hidden gem. Tour Vermont’s 32 breweries and get to know the creative minds behind the brews via exclusive interviews with these inspired visionaries. Each profile includes a Q&A with either the founder or head brewer of the microbrewery, providing insight into what inspires them as brewmasters and what the future holds for their brewery and craft brewing in general.

Inside you’ll also find:

  • A curated guide to the top 100+ beer-focused restaurants and markets in Vermont.

  • Easy-reference maps charting the featured
 craft breweries, restaurants and markets.

  • A calendar of not-to-be-missed annual beer 
events.

  • A preview of On Tap Soon breweries set to open in 2014.

  • Local sources of homebrewing supplies and hops + grains if you’re inspired to brew your own.

Cheers!
