TODAY! 3:00 – 7:00 PM: taste the best small-batch brewing!

This outdoor event features great beer, food, and music. PLUS, you’ll be able to explore the Museum’s galleries and take in a planetarium show. Bears and brews … what could be better?

Sample beers from the finest nano- and micro-breweries in northern Vermont and New Hampshire for a taste of autumn in “the Kingdom.” Surrounded by the natural and cultural history of the Fairbanks Museum, this festival is intimate by design. You’ll have a chance to wander the galleries, find hidden treasures, and experience Vermont’s only public planetarium! Enjoy distinctive flavors from Hill Farmstead Brewery, Whirligig Brewing, Schilling Beer Co., and more! We limit the number of tickets, so you’ll be able to talk with brewers and knowledgeable staff, to get the low-down about foraging, fermenting, and tasting from the folks who know it best.

You must be 21 years old or older to purchase a tasting ticket.

Your health is our priority. In response to current CDC and Vermont Department of Health guidelines, Museum guests are no longer required to show proof of vaccination or negative test results. Masks are not required. COVID-19 is likely to be a part of our lives for years to come. As such, we will continue to monitor public health guidelines, and all guests must adhere to safety protocols in place on the day of the event and not on the day of the ticket purchase.
