With the transition of summer to fall, and the inevitable (but welcome) shift from shandy to fall brews, also comes several end-of-summer festivals and concerts. Although we’re sad to see summer go this year, we’re excited about these fun events happening throughout our great state of Vermont. We hope to see you there!
