My latest featured article for RateBeer’s The HopPress… posted on Saturday, September 25th.
Earlier this month, the Saturday of the long Labor Day weekend, I traveled down the spine of the Green Mountains to the Mount Snow Ski Resort to attend their 16th Annual Brewers Festival. You geographers all know that the Green Mountains almost split Vermont in half from north to south. These mountains and their placement within the state add to the travel difficulties of moving around our beautiful, but very rural state. Like many places in Vermont, the Mount Snow region is accessible only by secondary roads and, while the drive down Route 100 through the mountains is a beautiful one, is does take nearly three hours to get there from near Montpelier where I live… and it is only about 140 miles.
