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 included full-day guided craft beer tour without having to worry about designated drivers! Book by clicking on the available dates below:

A minimum of six guests are needed to conduct the tour. If fewer than six seats are booked one week prior to the tour date, the tour will be canceled and you will be refunded the tour price. We encourage you to keep your lodging reservation and visit breweries on your own. If we cancel the tour, we will do our best to reserve Lawson's and Heady Topper for you to purchase at our participating retailers.

Drink Vermont Beer

We'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).

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.
