Zoks Homebrewing & Winemaking Supplies

November 4, 2017

Zok’s Homebrewing Supplies annual beer bus tour will visit four Southern Vermont breweries in 2017. We will stop for tours and samples at 2 breweries and visit 2 brewpubs, one each for lunch and dinner. Our first stop will be the Hermit Thrush Brewery. This is strictly a spontaneous beer brewery, making wild and sour beers. The next stop will be lunch at Whetstone Station Brewpub in Brattleboro. Whetstone brews on a small in house brewery and is located in a beautiful area on the Connecticut River.  After lunch we will trek up to Bennington to Northshire Brewing Company for a tour and beer samples. Owner Chris Mayne said pints may be available for sale.  Finally we will finish the day’s events with a dinner buffet at Madison Brewing Company, also in Bennington.
