Nestled in the gorgeous Green Mountains of Northern Vermont lies a paradise you might not expect. True, the mountains here are a little more majestic, the winter snow a little purer, and the emerald forests a little more pristine; but this is also a paradise for the craft beer connoisseur. If you want to experience it all, there is no better way than the 5th annual Craft Brew Races, May 19 in Stowe, VT.

Lace’em Up

The Craft Brew Races begin with a fun 5k run through the enchanting grounds of the Stoweflake Resort. The course is perfect for runners of all ages and abilities, winding through the forest and crossing the West Branch of the Little River on a series of quaint bridges before returning to the more-important-than-ever finish line. This is where the fun really begins.

Grab a Cold One

Following the completion of the race, the afternoon ramps it up a notch with the Beer Festival. Featuring more than 30 local microbreweries like Otter Creek and Fiddlehead, racers and spectators alike will enjoy some of the best craft beer in the country along with delicious food from local food trucks and fabulous live music.
