The Bar Towel is happy to bring back a classic feature, “On The Road” reports, detailing (non-comprehensive) beer experiences from destinations outside of Ontario. In this article: a recent excursion to central Vermont, including Burlington, Waterbury and Montpelier.
It was quite amazing that through all my travels I had not yet made it to Vermont. It’s only a state and a province away, shares a border with Canada yet it seems far away. But luckily, at the end of December 2012 and early January 2013 I was finally able to make my first trip to the Green Mountain State. And I am sure happy I did.
Vermont is truly is a unique place, a state that feels unlike anywhere else in the U.S. It’s as if the wide-spread commercialism that has permeated our culture hasn’t arrived there yet. It’s friendly, quaint, pretty, honest, and remarkable in how much good beer is there considering the state’s small population size (ranked 49th out of 50).
