Sunshine Fund

June 1-15th Community Harvest of Central Vermont

During the first half of June,  Sunshine Fund donations will benefit Community Harvest of Central Vermont. This organization is committed to bringing our community together through gleaning to recover surplus food produced on area farms to feed those with limited access to healthy, fresh local food. In the process, they aim to help the community gain a greater awareness and appreciation of the local food system, healthy eating and waste reduction. Stop by our Taproom and donate today!

June 16th – 30th CRAG Vermont

Our Sunshine Fund recipient for the second half of the month is CRAG Vermont,  a non-profit that supports Vermont’s climbing community by securing, protecting and conserving access to cliffs and climbing resources. Donate in our Taproom or Retail Store to save the cliffs and support the climbers who protect them.

Little Sip IPA 6.2% ABV

It’s the perfect time of year for our Little Sip IPA.  This brew will quench your thirst as you reach the summit of your favorite hike, the beer you grab for the victorious celebration after that birdie on the green and it keeps you company while you mow the lawn. It pairs best with outdoor adventures with a delightfully crushable 6.2% ABV.

Sip of Sunshine 8% ABV

Our signature lupulin-laden India Pale Ale is packed with juicy tropical fruit character, bright floral aromas and delectable layers of hop flavor.  It tastes like a tropical vacation in a can.

Super Session #3 4.8% ABV

Super Session #3 is designed to be a light and refreshing beer with low alcohol, yet the full hop character of a Session IPA. Each beer in our Super Session series is brewed with the same malt base and specialty malts but features a different single-hop variety. Super Session #3 is brewed with copious amounts of Comet hops.
