A Letter from the VBA President
2019 VERMONT BREWERS FESTIVAL KILLINGTON

On behalf of the Vermont Brewers Association, welcome to the Vermont Brewers Festival Killington!
Of all the beer festivals I am involved with, this is perhaps the one I am the most excited about. Why?
Because it brings together two of my favorite things about doing business in Vermont: beer and
collaboration.
The idea for a new festival focusing on collaborations came about by asking “what can the Vermont
Brewers Association offer that no other festival can?” The answer is energizing our brewing
community to work together and explore the possibilities of collaboration across the state. We have
25 different pairs of brewers that came together to create beers that have never been imagined
before, and we get to present them to you here today! I am confident that you will get to try plenty of
beer worth finding.
Speaking of collaboration, there are many people to thank for making this Festival possible. First of
all, thank you to our spectacular Festival and Marketing Manager, Amy Cronin who has gone above
and beyond what is expected of her to prepare us for success in our second year of this festival. Thank
you to Meg Schultz for providing her expertise to make sure everything runs smoothly today. Thank
you also to our Vermont Brewers Association Events Committee, chaired by Andrea Gagner of 14th
Star Brewing, and representing 4 other breweries as well. Thank you to Melissa Corbin, our stalwart
Executive Director, who tirelessly works to move our mission forward. Thank you to our volunteers,
who help this Festival run smoothly, and without whom we would be utterly lost. Thank you to all the
Brewers Association members for taking the time to help us represent our association with the best
Vermont has to offer and to embrace the spirit of collaboration so wholeheartedly. Thank you to our
Allied Trade Partners for your ongoing support of our Association and our industry as a whole. Thank
you to Killington Resort for making us feel at home and being wonderful hosts to this exciting event.
And most of all, thank all of you for making this festival what it is, and for showing your support of the
Vermont Brewers Association, and all the hard work of our staff and members. With your help, we are
moving forward with our mission to promote and strengthen the culture of craft brewing in Vermont
through marketing, education, and advocacy for Vermont made beer.
So, drink responsibly, explore new beers and breweries, meet some brewers, and most of all, enjoy
yourselves!
Cheers!
                                                                                         Avery Schwenk

Welcome & Festival Team
                                              2019 VERMONT BREWERS FESTIVAL KILLINGTON

       Welcome to the 2nd Annual Vermont Brewers Festival Killington
Welcome to the Vermont Brewers’ Winter Festival, now in its second year, a tradition that has Vermont
brewers filled with excitement and flexing their collective creative muscles. Like our summer festival,
we are fortunate to be able to bring some of the best beer to you at a breath-taking location featuring
some of the most stunning scenery. Our winter festival was created to highlight collaboration brews
from all over the state, and beyond with Killington Mountain being the perfect place for all those to
enjoy Vermont, its amazing beer, and phenomenal skiing and snowboarding.
Our goal is to give consumers access to quality beers consistently being produced in the State of
Vermont. The winter festival, however, adds a delicious twist; collaboration. This festival features over
25 collaboration brews from the multitude of talented craft brewers within this beautiful state. The
collaborations were determined by the brewers themselves and were not hampered by distance, style
or brewery size. Large-scale brewers paired with small brewers, northern brewers collaborated with
southern brewers, and brewers that specialize in sour beers worked with brewers of traditional ales,
among many others.
We hope that you’ll enjoy the creativity, ingenuity and hard work that went into creating the beer
being offered at this festival as much as we enjoyed creating them. To be able to offer the consumer
something different and unique is what Vermont Craft Brewers are all about and we welcome you to
be a part of our beer community.
                                                                                      Andrea Gagner
