75 cold-weather brews, all for you
Building off the rip-roaring success of their farmhouse ale-focused Summerfest, the dudes at Drink Craft Beer are at it again, but this time with a first-annual ode to beers that, unlike Super Bowl halftime specials, actually work better when there's a nip in the air. Expect three sessions overflowing with
• A limited-edition, special-release DCB x Peak Organic collab harvest brown ale brewed w/ local honey, ginger, and chestnuts (NOTE: They haven't picked a name yet. And you can vote for said name online. And one is Honey Gingernuts. Do the right thing)
• Endless pours of over 75 "warming, rich & hearty" suds from 25 local craft brewers (VT's Rock Art Brewery, Maine's Urban Farm Fermentory, at least 73 more) and less respected, but more handsome cider makers, many of whom are using some variation of seasonal ingredients
• Base-building small bites from Mei Mei Street Kitchen and Redbones BBQ, as well as pickles from Grillo's and artisan cheese poppers from Shy Brothers Farms. Or you could just mash 'em all together if you're what Janet would call a Nasty Boy.
