Back in 2008, three folks who really like beer, really like festivals and really like the Mad River Valley, decided we wanted to bring the fun of a beer fest back to the Valley and that the only way it was going to happen was if we pulled up our bootstraps and did it ourselves!
Today SIPtemberfest has around 24 brewers and only about 800 tickets, making it the Best Little Beer Fest in Vermont, offering people an unparalleled craft beer experience. Mad River Glen is a unique setting that keeps the vibe comfortable. And with such extremely limited tickets, lines are never too long so you can meet and talk to the actual brewers. The beers are amazing, the people are cool, the food and the music are local and awesome, and -rain or shine- it’s always a great time.
It’s amazing to look back and think how far we’ve come. Your support has helped build us a reputation for being one of the best beer fests around and there are some awesome beer fest in Vermont! Obviously, we couldn’t get here without the continued support of our fans, friends, family and the incredible community that surrounds us. After all, what’s a party if no one comes?
The 2015 SIPtemberfest has come and gone and we are already starting to plan for 2016. We – as always – hope to make it better than ever, complete with new brewers and a few surprises! Be sure to sign up for our Fresh SIPs (top right hand side of the page,) so you can get all our updates emailed directly to you. We will have important announcements soon so don’t get left out! Our 2015 tickets were gone in minutes so seriously – sign up or risk being on the wrong side of ‘I told you!’
Thanks again for your support of all things craft beer – CHEERS!
