    Coming up to Burlington Friday through Sunday with a stop at Hill Farmstead Saturday, then to Okemo and Lebanon Sunday, Sugarbush Monday. Anything happening this weekend I should check out? If anyone wants to meet up and share/trade a bottle let me know.

    Know all about Farmhouse, Zero G, Vermont Pub and Brewery. Hit them up every time I'm in town. This time I'm coming up with a friend who has never been to VT, so I've got to show him as much of the awesomeness that is Vermont as I can in 3 nights. I guess I was more getting at stuff like tap take-overs, Lawson's sitings, anyone that might want to do an in person trade/bottleshare, etc. http://beeradvocate.com/community/threads/ip-burlington-hill-farmstead-2-24-26.506/. I'll probably be stopping in Waterbury after Hill Farmstead too.

    And any word on snow reports would be great. I'm doing Smuggs Sat, Okemo Sun, Sugarbush Monday.

    Nothing much going on this weekend. There was a sixpoint event at the Farmhouse on Wednesday, not sure what is still on.

    Should be getting some fresh snow tonight into tomorrow.

    Figured, instead of starting a new thread, I'll just jump onto this one. I'm heading up to Burlington next week and I've got a few questions.... do any of the shops there have Heady available on a regular basis? Along those same lines ... is it worth going out to Hill Farmstead? What other spots in Burlington/surrounding area should we hit up? Thanks all!

    It's definitely worth going out to the Hill Farmstead. Everett is currently on tap (awesome porter) as well as Columbus (dank hops in that one). Plus they still have some bottles of Flora batch 3. I just picked up some Heady from the Hunger Mountain Coop on Wed along with some Double Sunshine. It's in Montpelier, which is right off of 89 as you head towards Burlington. Plus Three Penny is there (http://threepennytaproom.com/).

    Hill Farmstead is absolutely worth going to, and Heady just get off 89 in waterbury and the cannery is right up the road 2mins off exit.
