By now, you likely already know all about Stowe’s electrifying ski slopes, award-winning culinary scene, and ceaseless backcountry hiking trails. But one of the most underrated aspects of a Green Mountain escape is this region’s rapidly expanding craft beer, hard cider, and distilled spirit landscape. Time and time again, thirsty guests here at Edson Hill search for “brewery tours near me” in search of a sampling and a behind-the-scenes look at a local taproom.

Some of the most influential North American craft breweries rest in our quiet, beautiful town as you’ll learn on your long-awaited beer tasting tour.
