Craft Beer in Brattleboro
The craft beer industry is thriving in Vermont. In fact, with beers infused with local ingredients and handmade with Vermont’s unique passion for crafting, we’ll venture to say that the craft beer in Brattleboro is as good as it gets. There are three fantastic breweries right here in town, all of which use different techniques and flavors, resulting in what we consider to be the finest beer around. They are Whetstone Station Restaurant and Brewery, Hermit Thrush Brewery, and Saxtons River Distillery.
Though you can stop in for a cold pint of craft beer at any one of these stations throughout the year, there’s no better time for a beer lover to be in Brattleboro than May.
