Excellent experience, definitely the highlight of our visit to Vermont

My wife and I enjoy brewery tours and typically do a single tour per visit to an area. We found Vermontology while looking at the ‘Local activities’ link at the resort we were planning to stay at. We took a leap of faith and signed up three days prior to our trip. Natalia from Vermontology contacted us just minutes after placing our ticket request. On the day of the tour Natalia picked us on time at our hotel and we set out. Over the next 8 hours Natalia was an excellent guide…” Read more on TripAdvisor…

Foley Brothers Brewing Company

Brandon, VT

Our first stop of the day* will be at Foley Brothers Brewing, in Brandon, VT. This 15-barrel brewery brews in small batches, and is always experimenting with new recipes. Founded in 2012, this brewery selects the finest ingredients, operating with diligent brewing techniques and excruciating attention to detail. To us, the “at-home” atmosphere epitomizes the Vermont craft brewery scene!

Amazing, Informative & Fun Brewery Tour

I booked a brewery tour with Natalia for my husband’s birthday. We were both excited when Natalia came to pick us up at our B&B. She was so friendly and fun the entire tour. There was absolutely no awkwardness spending 8 hours of your day with her, she made us feel comfortable from the first moment.” Read more on TripAdvisor…

Red Clover Ale Company

Brandon, VT

Next, we will visit the Red Clover Ale Company*, a brewery and taproom also in Brandon. This craft brewery focuses on beers from a range of styles engineered to be exceedingly drinkable and delicious. We love their beautiful tap room with its hand-crafted bar top and friendly staff!

Drop-In Brewing Company

Middlebury, VT

Our next stop will be at the Drop-In Brewing Company, in Middlebury, VT. This is a kegging-only brewery, with samples and growlers available for purchase in their tasting room. One interesting fact about this brewery is that it is the nation’s only full-scale brewing facility dedicated to brewing education.

Brewery & Distillery Tour

An absolute must for beer and spirits enthusiasts. Natalia was very engaging and entertaining, provided great info about the areas we traveled through, and made the time fly by.

There is pick-up and drop-off offered, which is also very helpful, especially for this sort of tour. Sample sizes were just right to keep you buzzing, but not so much that you go sloppy. 

Just perfect from top to bottom. Worth every cent and then some.Read more on TripAdvisor…

Otter Creek Brewing Company

Middlebury, VT

Our next stop of the day will be at Otter Creek Brewing Company, where lunch is available for purchase on the premises. This facility is home to two different brands: Otter Creek and The Shed Brewery. The visitor center has a fun atmosphere about it, and we love the generous portions provided in their beer samplers!

A Great Time!

My girlfriend and I went on the Vermontology “Brewery” Tour and had a great time! Natalia really knows her stuff and is very friendly. We didn’t know what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised with the variety and quality of the places that we visited. We’d recommend this to anyone who is looking to take a break from the slopes for a day of fine brews and fine company.Read more on TripAdvisor…

Appalachian Gap Distillery

Middlebury, VT

Our next stop will be at the Appalachian Gap Distillery where you will taste seven unique spirits: Ridgeline Whiskey, Mythic Gin, Peregrine Gin, Papilio VTquila, Fractal Vodka, Snowfall Whiskey, and Kaffekask. We’re partial to Papilio for its smoky hints of maple and echoes of tequila.

Relaxing day of no planning just fun

I knew there was plenty to do in Vermont and wanted to take my girlfriend to see the foliage, enjoy the food and check out a few breweries. Natalia picked us up in Quechee and took us north to Middlebury…” Read more on TripAdvisor…

Woodchuck Hard Cider

Middlebury, VT

Our final destination is just a short drive up the road to Woodchuck Hard Cider*. In their brand new facility, we will take a self-guided tour to see how hard cider is made. Woodchuck Cider has many delicious varieties to choose from. Our favorite is Private Reserve Barrel Select, which is aged for six months in genuine white oak Kentucky Bourbon barrels. This day tour concludes by returning all customers to their original pick-up locations.

Great tour. Great day!

My fiancé and I were having our parents meet for the first time at our venue in Killington, VT and we were looking for a something for all us to do together. We found Vermontology online and decided to book the brewery day tour. It was PERFECT!” Read more on TripAdvisor…

Fun! Fun! Fun!

“My husband and I wanted to try something different for a weekend get-a-way and happened upon Vermontology. We are not ones that usually have much planned when we travel and thought it could not hurt to try a one day tour. We were greeted by our stellar guide, Natalia, and throughout the day it just got better. We visited and toured several local distilleries and breweries, had a great lunch at Otter Creek, and continued to navigate through beautiful Vermont. Having a small business ourselves it was humbling to see how Natalia had a vested interest in other small businesses within her community. Natalia was quick to point out many local stores and included several of these in her tour. It was very clear Natalia also had great rapport with the businesses on her tour. Need a coffee break? Want to detour to a certain place you heard about? Natalia was easy-going and had no problems stopping wherever you wanted on the way. I could go on and on about how great a time we had but you really have to try it for yourself. If you are looking for a great day, with a great host, for a great price, call Vermontology. You will not be disappointed!” Read more on TripAdvisor...
