In Vermont this month..

We are excited to bring back Phirst Light both in cans and on draft!

We first brewed Phirst Light in the early months of 2020. Perhaps you were lucky enough to snag a few bottles before the mandatory quarantine period. If not, no worries! You have the chance to enjoy it all month long!

Phirst Light 2020

The Trifecta!

Phirst Light is a very special beer. Not only is it a limited release, it is also a collaboration brew with Upper Pass Beer Company and a good brews for a cause! As a Good Brews for a Cause, with every four pack purchase, you are supporting a specific cause. Proceeds from this beer support the WaterWheel Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded by Phish to create positive change in the community and to support the Lake Champlain watershed.

Staying Local

In addition to working with another Vermont brewery to support a Vermont non-profit, this beer also uses local ingredients! We use barley from Vermont Malthouse and Champlain Valley-grown Cascade, Centennial, and Nugget hops to brighten this IPA. We hope you enjoy this mashup of local ingredients and brewing styles. Cheers!
