Plans Underway for Summer HomeBrew Festival
The organizers of the Southern Vermont HomeBrew Festival (formerly the 4CN HomeBrew Festival) announce a new partnership with the Bennington Regional Chamber of Commerce. This newly forged alliance will allow the festival to grow and further enhance the attendee experience. This collective will reinforce the summer festival vibe and showcase what summer in the Shires is all about!
The fifth annual event will be held on Saturday, August 3, on Shields Drive in Bennington from noon to 3:30 p.m. Patrons are encouraged to come and enjoy unlimited sampling of home-brewed beer, wine, mead, cider and more, plus live entertainment and eats from the area’s food trucks.
“The Summer HomeBrew Festival is where it all started five years ago,” states Will Gardner, co-owner of HopRidge Farms. “We wanted a way to showcase the incredible home-brewed beverages being produced in our area and a Home Brew Festival seemed like the place to start. We have focused over the years on making this festival fun, safe, and all about the Home Brewers. We are beyond excited to celebrate our fifth anniversary by teaming up with the Bennington Regional Chamber and reimaging this unique and wonderful event.”
“We were excited when Will approached with the proposition,” states Matt Harrington, executive director of the Bennington Regional Chamber of Commerce. “We have a great chemistry as we’ve seen the Winter Homebrew Festival, which we put on together, grow and succeed. We’re hoping that by aligning the Summer Homebrew Festival with the chamber’s resources we can help Will grow this festival to be a magnet event in the Northeast.”
