With Vermont’s thriving spirits industry―the state is home to eighteen distilleries, nearly fifty breweries, and more than a dozen wineries―you can find hard apple cider, whiskey, and everything in between.
Drink Vermont is an exploration of the flavors, people, and locations throughout the state. Famous for local resources, like maple syrup, and the stunning colors of the fall foliage, Vermont is the perfect destination for an informative and fun sample of recipes, interviews, and reviews of breweries and distilleries.
Traveling north toward the Canadian border, west to the shore of Lake Champlain, into the Northeast Kingdom, through the state’s capital, and the charming small towns of southern Vermont, Gershman takes readers on a visual journey through the seasons as they discover the unique tastes created in the Green Mountain State. Stops along the trip include The Alchemist, maker of the acclaimed Heady Topper (the top beer in America); Hill Farmstead, named the 2015 Best Brewery in the World; and Putney Mountain Winery, where they create wines like Apple Maple, Simply Pear, Rhubarb Blush, Putney Pommeau, Vermont Cassis, and Simply Cranberry using local fruits.
