Vermont Bed & Brew Package

Come for the Craft Beer. Stay for the Valley.

Your Tour:

Drink Vermont BeerWe’ve created a very unique package bundled with discounted lodging to give guests an all day tour at select Vermont Route 100 (IPA Highway) craft breweries. The tour picks you up at your lodging choice and drives you throughout Central Vermont, tasting craft beers and snacks along the way. Typical tours are on Saturdays so you can arrive anytime Friday, wake up for breakfast and then be on your way.

Near the end of the tour, guests ask our local guide where they can continue on for dinner or drinks sampling even more unique craft beers (and delicious local foods).

Pricing is based on your choice of where to stay and includes:

  • 2 nights at a lodge or bed & breakfast in the Mad River Valley
  • Private Saturday tour of 3 to 4 craft breweries with special tastings of Vermont beers en route and purchasing opportunities
  • Opportunity to buy local beers such as Lawson’s Finest Liquids and Heady Topper (subject to availability).
  • Local and knowledgeable “beer guide” and friendly party bus driver
  • Mad River Valley 6oz. tasting glass with free tasting at each brewery
  • Opportunities for lunch, snacks, and shopping along the route

Since our tour focuses on Central Vermont, we suggest considering coming a day early or staying an extra day to take a day trip to other breweries within driving distance including Hill Farmstead, Switchback, Zero Gravity, Goodwater, Lost Nation, Fiddlehead, Foley Brothers, Infinity Brewing, Burlington Beer Company, and many others.

Vermont Bed & Brew Package Let us help you discover some of the country’s best craft beer while staying in the beautiful Mad River Valley. Staying in the Mad River Valley puts you right in the heart of Vermont craft brew country. We are located in Central Vermont, not far off Interstate-89, making nearly every Vermont craft brewery accessible with a short, scenic drive over the river (or covered bridge) and through the woods.

Come stay at one of our bed & breakfasts, inns or lodges and enjoy the full-day guided craft beer tour without having to worry about designated drivers!
