Drive on thru and ExBEERience
Take a drive and be a Vermont tourist by popping the trunk of your car and filling it with VT beer. Attend our second drive thru beer event on Saturday, July 18 at Champlain Valley Hops in Starksboro, VT.
The weekend of July17-18 would have been our annual Vermont Brewers Festival. Instead we’re celebrating craft beer at our Drive Thru ExBEERience in a magical location. Enjoy picking up Vermont beer and experience the beauty of a Vermont hopyard.
You’ll purchase beer online in advance of the event, drive up to each one of our participating brewers you purchased beer from, and have your trunk filled with Vermont beer. Come discover Beer Worth Finding® and support Vermont brewers.
