    If you are indeed in Waterford (and not Waterbury), I'd head north about 45 minutes to the Westmore area. You can hike a couple trails at Mt. Pisgah, or head out towards Long Pond and do the Bald Mountain trail.

    Thanks for the suggestions! We are in Waterford and not Waterbury... that confusion has caused a few minor mixups already

    Haha good deal. Another option you have is to go south about the same distance--puts you in the Franconia Notch (NH)--lots of hiking and outdoorsy stuff to do there too.

    Anyone have beer distributor recommendations in the vicinity of the Northeast Kingdom? I'm hoping to get a couple sixtels for a party i'm throwing in early September. Nothing too crazy--I was thinking something from Lost Nation, Zero Gravity, or somewhere else local that's actually attainable. I already submitted a request through Lost Nation's website & haven't heard back, so I want to have a couple backup options.

    Ideally i'd like to rent a jockey box too, so if anyone has a lead on that it would be really helpful.

    CBC Waterbury should be able to cover you. I'm pretty sure they rent jockey box too.

    Heady is the only beer TA is dispersing outside of the brewery right now. Focal and anything else you'll have to go there.

    Any feedback from the new Alchemist site? Supply, limits, selection, tour details etc? Would love to hear back from someone who has been recently. Heading up from Boston next month and hoping to bring back some 4packs / maybe a case? Thanks guys, cheers!

    last 2 trips up has been either a mixed case (Topper, Banger, Crusher) or a straight case of Banger... there's a line to start the day but they are good at processing people...

    Heading to Waterbury in early November with 2 couples. Will be hitting the bars and restuarants in town one night but looking for something else to do during the day. I am assuming it will be too cold for the swimming holes, might look for a disc golf course, or possibly go for a hike. Any ideas or must do outdoor activities around that time?

    Drive a little and go to smugglers notch. Totally worth it. Disc golf, tennis, etc. It's a resort so there is fun for everyone.

    There is a free disc golf course in Waterbury that I took my kids to. It was my first time so I can't attest to its quality but it had some nice views.

    The Duxbury trailhead for Camel's Hump is about 15 minutes outside Waterbury. We did it last weekend and it was a great hike. Views will probably be even better in early November. If you don't have the time to go up and back there is also a 1 mile loop trail that supposedly has good views of Camel's Hump in that area, but we didn't do that so I'm not sure if it is worth it.

    Pleasant surprise to find Boneyard on draft. Got to tick RPM!

    Has anyone had any luck filling a Hydro Flask at a VT brewery? I've been using one as a water bottle and am curious how it'll fare as a growler.

    Thanks. We ended up spending a few hours with our pup on the little patio in front of Blackback. Worked out great

    Has anyone been to Monarch and the Milkweed in Burlington yet - specifically for dinner?
