The Mount Snow Winter Brewers Festival in West Dover, Vermont. Think about it... what's better than spring skiing and snowboarding on the mountain? Carving down soft snow in nothing but a tee-shirt, working on your goggle tan, and trading in your balaclava for a bandana. Talk about on-hill bliss.
Well, Mount Snow makes it even tastier with an end-of-winter brewers festival featuring all your favorite brews from across New England.
THE MOUNT SNOW WINTER BREWERS FESTIVAL (a.k.a. Mount Snow Brewfest) WHEN: April 9, 2011. 1pm to 6pm. WHERE: Cuzzin's deck, Main Base Area at Mount Snow. West Dover, Vermont. WHY: Beer, skiing and snowboarding, BBQ, end-of-season revelry.
The epic combination of great skiing and great beer should not be missed. The festivities take place on Saturday, April 9th, 2011, starting at 1pm and wrapping at 6pm. So you can either take some early morning runs and then belly up to the bar at Cuzzins by 1pm or get a slow start, enjoy the mountain, and then head down to the deck after last chair. Either way, you're going to enjoy some great beer.
Breweries scheduled to be pouring are: Magic Hat, Allagash, Long Trail, Harpoon, Rock Art, Red Hook, Stone, North Coast, Stoudt's, Woodchuck Cider, Olde Burnside, Brooklyn and Budweiser.
The atmosphere is relaxed and festive; live music (a la Jeff Tuohy), BBQ, and frosty mugs. Who could resist? Over a dozen breweries show up, tapping into their fresh spring lineup of beers; reminding us that green meadows, white-capped rivers, and warm breezes are on the way. Hey, we managed to stay tough in January when the windchill approached -20, so we deserve a little party, right?
