New year, new guide! Hopefully you’re all worn out on sports and done reading about how the Patriots blew it (my take: Belichick’s stubborn fault), so lets talk about beer!
I stopped into River Roost Brewery in VT on my way home from a miserably cold obstacle race Saturday. Let’s dig into the much more enjoyable part of my weekend!

Nothing like an email that you owe money to remind you that you’ve been punishing your liver in the name of hobby journalism for a whole year! Since I decided to spend January sober (I can hear all your boos already), obviously there hasn’t been much to post about. But rather than letting my already questionable writing ability get rusty, I’m going to run down the past year; giving you the facts, handing out some obviously super important superlatives and then filling you in on what to expect in the future for the Brew Guide!

With all the excitement about the “I Drink New England” Shirts being released yesterday and my first try at beer journalism (please check it out and let me know what you think), I forgot to talk about the We’re Funk’d festival on What’s Goin’ Down!
Night Shift and Springdale put together an awesome first year event with a lot of really fantastic sour and wild beers. The German BSV Center in Walpole was a nice venue with the perfect set up for such and event. Next year should be a must attend for anyone that enjoys a bit of Sour Patch tongue. Only critique, hopefully next year they can get a few more food options and a bunch more porta-potties.
Time to put a wrap on Vermont for the time being, with a stop into an old favorite of mine, Magic Hat Brewing Co.

Happy Monday folks, we’ve got a whole bunch of awesome coming to you this week!

(Sign Up Here!) Get in now on that now, got big news for the launch.
So much excitement, I know!

On to Burlington Beer!

There’s a weekly write-up I do, perhaps you’ve read, called “What’s Going Down This Week“. It has news, events, beer releases, food trucks, and what’s in Brew Guide’s future! I recommend you check it out if you haven’t, it’s updated every Wednesday and gives you fun shit to do and a way to stalk me..if you’re so inclined.
And finally we get another long-awaited cider entry! Let’s get to the core of Citizen Cider! (I’ll see myself out…)

After having a late breakfast in Burlington last week, we spent some time exploring the waterfront. I’d like to say it was for exercise, but it was mostly because it was still 20-ish minutes before Foam Brewing was going to be open. While there we took a peek at the A_Dog Skatepark, which was hosting a kids skate camp. I bring this up because I heard a statement from a 10-13 year old kid at this park that surprised me, (I assume in reference to a new board) “I found it for cheaper online, but you got to support the local store.” Burlington is for sure a strange city, but there is definitely some things they do right up there.
Beer is definitely another one of those things and Foam Brewers is a big part of that.

We’ve done it! It only took 5-ish months, but through sheer determination, will power and a fair share of morning after headaches, we finally get to check off all 5 New England states! This week will be a heaping helping of Vermont for you, starting with one of the regions most popular, Alchemist!
