VPR Cafe: Community Craft Beer Flows And Flourishes

Aug 4, 2017

For those of you too young to remember the dark ages of beer, there was a time when there were no micro-breweries; only national brands, a few local brews, and imports. But now, a new brewery has opened in Vermont since you started reading this. 

Just when you thought the Vermont craft-brew scene was becoming over saturated, we continue to ride the wave with new, community-scale breweries popping up all around the state. From tiny operations in barns to slightly larger brew pubs also serving up grub, Seven Days food writers, Hannah Palmer Egan and Sally Pollak, made their rounds and took one for the team to sample a few flights.

Check out this episode of The VPR Cafe to hear about the many styles of beer both writers discovered in the nooks and crannies of Vermont or read their recent Seven Days article, "More Beer! Tiny Vermont Breweries Off The Beaten Path." 

The VPR Cafe is made possible with support from Bistro de Margot in Burlington. A chef-owned restaurant offering modern, French cuisine in a casual atmosphere.
