Maybe there's something in the water. Maybe there's something in the air.
Maybe..... there's something up here in the mountains.
Vermont's brewers are making magic with it.


The Vermont Brewery Challenge – Passport Program


The craft beer industry in Vermont supports over 1,500 jobs and draws in over a million tourists each year according to a recently commissioned Economic Impact Report . Our Association now has 49 members, many of which have taprooms where you can taste the unique and creative brews that you can’t get anywhere else in the world. Take the Vermont Brewery Challenge with friends or family and have a blast traveling around the state. Here’s how it works:


Pick up an Official Passport at a participating brewery and/or  brewpub, or at our annual Vermont Brewers Festival. You can also download the Passport image to print at home.


Visit the brewpubs and breweries around Vermont.


Get your passport stamped by each Association member.


Send your Passport to:

Vermont Brewers Association
P.O. Box 985
Burlington, VT  05402


Be sure to indicate your shirt size if you qualify.


Offer valid while supplies last. Good only for breweries & brewpubs (not at wineries or cideries).


Thank you for supporting Vermont brewers and enjoy responsibly!
