Summer HomeBrew Festival
Organizers of the Southern Vermont HomeBrew Festival (formerly the 4CN HomeBrew Festival) have announced a new partnership with the Bennington Regional Chamber of Commerce, which will allow the festival to grow and further enhance the attendee experience.
The fifth annual event will be held from 12 noon to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 3, on Shields Drive in Bennington. Patrons are encouraged to come and enjoy unlimited sampling of home-brewed beer, wine, mead, cider and more. Vendors will be offering samples and there will be live entertainment and the area’s best 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 … 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,” says 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.”
