In January, we wrote a blog extolling the virtues of Vermont’s Mad River Valley. In less than a year, more developments have come to fruition that warrant further examination, perhaps over a flight of Lawson’s Finest Liquids or the Alchemist Brewery’s latest experimental pour.
First off, the scenic Route 100 Beer Trail just received a long awaited addition; Lawson’s Finest Liquids has just opened a custom-built taproom and retail store in the heart of Waitsfield. As we noted in our previous blog, Vermont holds the distinction of having more craft breweries per capita than any other state and the Mad River Valley is right in the middle of it all. Looking beyond the draw of Sugarbush Ski Resort and Mad River Glen in winter, and countless boutique shops, artisan galleries and agricultural opportunities offered year round, these local craft breweries (and distilleries) continue to make international waves.
The center of Waitsfield is the place to be if you are looking for good company, world-class beer and sensational food. Recognizing the growth and opportunity in Waitsfield, Worthy Vermont, a group of Vermont restaurateurs focused on local foods, craft beers, and artisan spirits, recently opened a second iteration of their hugely popular Worthy Burger in downtown Waitsfield. The restaurant offers an ever-changing lineup of local craft beer and cider and is a welcome addition to the thriving food scene in Waitsfield.
This active Waitsfield Inn and Events Barn for sale enjoys a location between the recently built Lawson’s Finest Liquids taproom, the Alchemist Brewery cannery in Waterbury, VT, and, further on, the mighty Alchemist taproom in Stowe. The steady demand for destination weddings defines summer business at the Inn and supplements an active stream of leisure travel business. The Mad River Valley is an unmatched location in every season.
