It’s officially barbecue season in the state of Vermont. During the warm, sunny days of early summer, we’re spending as much time as possible outdoors. At Farmers’ we’re celebrating with weekly beef and beer specials throughout the month of June.
If you’re a longtime fan of Vermont microbrews, you may be familiar with this brewery. But you might not recognize them with their new look! Trout River Brewing, located right down the road in Springfield, Vermont, has been around since 1996; they were one of the first 10 breweries in Vermont. The original owners, who put Trout River on the map as one of Vermont’s first craft beer companies, sold the business to three Springfield natives in 2016. The new owners have grown the original beer list, which included Rainbow Red Ale, Chocolate Oatmeal Stout, Hoppin’ Mad Trout Ale, and Knight Slayer Imperial Stout, to include a few different IPA styles, some German-style beers, a blonde, a porter, and more (including a delicious sounding Blueberry Saison.) Here’s their full lineup.
This afternoon (June 7) Trout River will be here with samples of some of their most popular brews. Stop by for a taste! For this weekend only, Trout River Brews are 10% off.
This week’s beef special (15% off) is Tri-Tip from Black River Meats–all-natural, locally raised beef from family-owned farms in Vermont, upstate New York, and New Hampshire. We’re getting more in tomorrow for your weekend barbecues. After you’ve picked up your beef and beer, all you need now are a few ears of sweet corn, a side salad, and maybe a watermelon, and you have a perfect summer meal.
