UPDATE: Check out our new post for Killington Brewfest 2010 info.
The annual Killington Brewfest is this Saturday, October 3 from 1pm – 6pm at the Snowshed Lodge at Killington, VT and speaking from personal experience, it is an event not to be missed!
This year, the annual party features 25 breweries pouring over 60 different beers: ales, porters, wheats, lagers, stouts and seasonal creations. There will also be two live bands and food.
Tickets are $25 and include a 3oz souvenir tasting glass with twelve beer sampling tickets. If you want the souvenir pint glass, it will cost an extra $3 this year. Extra beer tickets are also available for $1 each. For those not drinking, tickets are $5.
Ticket sales end Thursday, October 1, unless it sells out before then, which it has been known to do. Unfortunately, you’ll have to navigate Killington’s horrible online ticket site to buy your tickets. I do everything online and I can say in this case, it would be much easier to call them and order tickets since their ecommerce site is so poorly designed and hard to navigate. Hopefully that is also on their list of things to upgrade.
If you’re in the Snowdaze Ski House, this is an open weekend at the house and everyone is invited to come up and stay there. It’s a great way to spend a fall weekend, meet some new people, BBQ and get out of the city. Email info [AT] snowdaze.com for more details.
