Mash Bash: The Hop Jam Pre-Party

5K Trail Run

Hangover Brunch

 

You've waited all summer for Hop Jam Weekend. It's finally here and it's going to be spectacular. The beer and music line up is beyond good and the weather looks stunning. Forecasts are calling for partly sunny skies with temps near 80 on Saturday. Sublime. If you don't already have your Hop Jam tickets be sure to get them now. They will be available the day of the event too, but if you buy online you'll save a few bucks.

See you this weekend,

Mash Bash: The Hop Jam Pre-Party

Be sure to check out the Mash Bash in the James Moore Tavern this Friday night. We'll have beers from 15 breweries. Visit the Mash Bash page to see the complete brewery line up. There is no cover charge and doors open at 5pm. Dinner will be served until 9pm and the Tavern will stay open later with a DJ spinning tunes to give you time to socialize and try out a few more beers. Regular readers of this newsletter know we had the Woedoggies scheduled to play but they ran into a scheduling conflict and had to cancel. But, no worries, the party will roll on with a DJ, and the beer line up will be solid.            

 

5K Trail Run

  If you'd like to get a in little exercise on Saturday morning before the Hop Jam starts then jump into the Bolton Valley 5K to benefit Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports. This 5K trail run will be on Bolton Valley's Nordic trails and all the proceeds benefit Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports to aid in their mission to provide year-round sports and recreation to people with disabilities. If you ran this in the past you'll remember spending a lot of time on Broadway. This year that won't be the case as the course is all new and utilizes more trails that make it a bit more interesting. I ran the course last week and it was a ton of fun, you should join the race on Saturday so you can run it too. Use the link above to find the new course map.

 

Hangover Brunch

Wake up on Sunday morning with the Hangover Brunch. The Hangover Brunch will be held in the James Moore Tavern. Brunch will be served from 8-11am. The menu will include scrambled eggs, home fries, bacon, eggs Benedict, toast, juices, fruit, coffee, tea, mimosas and Bloody Marys.
