Third Thursday: Burlington Brewing: A History of Craft Beer in the Queen City
Burlington Brewing: A History of Craft Beer in the Queen City
with Adam Krakowski & Jeff Baker
Burlington has welcomed local farms, breweries and distilleries with open arms. The Queen City fosters a unique culture around beer and farm-to-table cuisine. Daniel Standiford established the city’s first brewery in 1880. Prohibition ushered in a dry era that remained for more than a century until Greg and Nancy Noonan fought the law and established Vermont Pub & Brewery in the late 1980s. Since then, breweries have popped up, from nationally recognized Magic Hat down to the city’s first blendery, House of Fermentology. Authors Adam Krakowski and Jeff S. Baker II explore Burlington’s sudsy history from early newspaper clippings to modern-day tastemakers, along with some delicious recipes.
