13TH ANNUAL KILLINGTON BREWFEST HIGHLIGHTS FALL FOLIAGE SEASON IN THE GREEN MOUNTAINS

09/17/2008

KILLINGTON, Vt. – The 13th annual Killington Brewfest returns to the Snowshed Lodge Saturday, October 4th with featured brewers from all across New England and the Northeast.

This year’s Brewfest will feature 18 micro and craft breweries with more than 40 top choice ales, pilsners, stouts, hand-crafted lagers and seasonal creations for beer enthusiasts to sample from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m.

“Our 13th year is proving to be a lucky one as the number of breweries has doubled from just a year ago,” said Killington’s event and partnership marketing manager Matt Porter. ”We have more breweries pouring at this year’s festival than we’ve seen the prior 12 years!”

Brewfest tickets are $20 and available online at www.killington.com or by calling 1-800-621-MTNS. Tickets include admission, a souvenir pint glass, four beer sampling tickets and live entertainment, provided by Killington’s own Joey Leone.  Additional beer sampling tickets will be available for $1.

Brewfest lodging packages are also available, starting at $37 per person, including Brewfest admission.

Once again this year Brewfest falls right in the middle of foliage season when Mother Nature’s fireworks explode all across New England, peaking from the end of September through mid-October with red, gold and yellow colors filling the mountainsides of Vermont.

The K-1 Gondola will be open Brewfest weekend offering scenic gondola rides for guests to view foliage in the heart of the Green Mountains, plus gondola-served hiking and mountain biking. The Alpine Slide at Pico Mountain will also be open. A ride on the K-1 Gondola to Killington Peak, the highest gondola-serviced peak in New England, offers guests spectacular views of five states and Canada.
