Vermont Maple Beer Trail

Contributed by: Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets

We love everything maple - and that includes beer. Craft breweries throughout the state feature one of Vermont's finest specialty products in a variety of different beers. Whether you like it dark, light, hoppy, or malty, there's a maple beer for you on this list. 

Celebrate Vermont maple this fall foliage season with The Maple 100! Created by the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, food & markets in collaboration with Vermont  Tourism and many other state partners, The Maple 100 presents the chance for all of us to learn more about how maple syrup is made, where it comes from, and the beauty Vermont's maple trees add to the landscape this time of year (and always).
