The Vermont Brewers Festival is one of the most awaited summer events in Vermont. It is held on the third weekend of July on the scenic waterfront of Lake Champlain in Burlington, Vermont, with a beautiful view of the Adirondack Mountains. Thousands of beer fans are drawn to this outdoor festival featuring about 100 Vermont craft beer and exclusive collaboration beers.
Burlington Waterfront Park is located to the west of downtown. It features the Burlington Bike Path, the Boathouse, Lake Champlain Sailing Center, and the ECHO Museum. The Vermont Brewers Festival was founded in 1995 by the Vermont Brewers Association to promote locally made beer. Participants of the festival can meet and greet many of the brewers who create wonderful artisan beers, enjoy live entertainment and take advantage of the food trucks that offer delicious snacks.
