Dover, Vt. (August 15, 2013) – With more than 30 different breweries pouring their newest concoctions from a total of almost 90 taps along with an inspired bar-b-que, live music and a great vibe, the 19th Annual Mount Snow Brewers Festival has become a Labor Day Weekend tradition for thousands of hard working folks that just aren’t satisfied with spending the long weekend in their backyard. The Brewers Festival is widely regarded as Mount Snow’s signature event and attracts beer enthusiasts from all over the Northeast.

New this year is the 1900′ VIP Pub which includes two day admission to the festival and on Saturday, access to the climate controlled 1900′ Burger where guests will find an array of exclusive beers not on tap in the festival grounds, a buffet, seating, swag and more. Only 100 tickets are being sold for $125 each.

“This year is very exciting because we know of some breweries that plan to debut a few of their newest beers at the Brewers Festival, so guests will have a chance to be the first people to try them,” said Mount Snow’s Food and Beverage Director, Jason Palmer. “And the VIP Pub is just going to be an amazing experience for the lucky few that get in on it. All in all, this might be the best beer lineup we’ve ever had.”

Quality live music will be on-stage throughout the event starting on Saturday with a performance by Brewers Festival favorite Jeff Tuohy Band rocking out upbeat covers and groovy originals that keep the crowd dancing. Sunday will feature Beantown Project which is a band known for keeping dance floors full throughout New England.

The inaugural Mount Snow Brewers Festival occurred in 1994 and was coordinated by current Mount Snow General Manager, Kelly Pawlak, in response to the growing interest in microbreweries that were popping up all over New England. The event has grown considerably since but still maintains the same small festival feel it had then and the focus on beer, music, food and good people hasn’t changed a bit.

Day-of admission is $35 for one day, $45 for two days for ages 21+ and $15 for one day, $25 for two days for anyone under 21 and designated drivers.
