It is hard to believe that’s it’s already August! Summer is beginning to wind down, but let’s be real, there’s still plenty of sunshine, warm temperatures and lots of end of summer action happening, so enjoy these last weeks of it! Speaking of summer fun, Switchback Brewing Company has some upcoming events that you’ll definitely want to check out. They recently announced three happenings, including a Switchback Export Stout Bottle Release, Switchback Sunday at Mt. Philo State Park, and Stretch & Sip Yoga in the Tap Room. Sounds like fun, huh? We thought we’d take this opportunity to spread the love for our friends at Switchback, and give you a little more information on these events, so you can hopefully make it to one or all of them! Below, we’ve highlighted all that you need to know…

Switchback Export Stout Bottle Release Weekend- August 15th & August 16th

All weekend long, enjoy Export Stout ice cream floats featuring delicious Lake Champlain Chocolates Ice Cream! The Export Stout is 5.8% ABV and 32 IBU that offers a smooth mouth-feel which gives off an early sweetness, accompanied by a nice roasted malt flavor and slight bitterness through to the finish. This brew also has coffee essences from the roasted barley, with dark chocolate accents in the finish. 22oz bottles will be available for purchase in the Tap Room only through the weekend, or while supplies last. For more information, visit or call the Tap Room at (802) 651-4114. This event will be taking place at the Switchback Tap Room.

Switchback Sunday at Mt. Philo State Park – August 16th – 12pm to 4pm

Stretch out those hiking legs and earn your beer as you hike or walk to the summit for a tasty Switchback! Once you’ve reached the summit, you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views as well as Switchback Ale and Extra Pale Ale beers for tasting. There will also be free 2oz samples & $2.00 10oz beers for purchase. Please note that you must be 21+ with a valid ID for drinking. Pair your brew with some awesome edibles from Cucina Antica Bistro. If you’ve never been to Mt. Philo State Park, you’re in for a real treat, it’s got some of the best views of the Lake Champlain Valley & the Adirondack Mountains of New York!

Stretch & Sip Yoga in the Tap Room – Sunday, August 30th – 10am to 11am

Enjoy a relaxing morning of yoga with teacher Sarah Quinttus from SoulShine Power Yoga. $20 gets you a 1 hour yoga class and a pint or flight of beer when you finish! Sarah will be teaching an all-levels 60 minute Vinyasa flow class followed by a pint or flight of your choice. Be sure to bring your own yoga mat and quench your thirst with friends after class with a glass or two of Switchback. Space is limited and a pre-registration is encouraged. Please call or visit the Tap Room to sign-up. They are also requesting that you arrive at least 15 minutes early!
