Nearly 175,000 barrels of beer are produced annually.
Head over to the Magic Hat Brewery in South Burlington for tours and spores (their word, not ours). While it sounds a bit dodgy, the hops here are of the highest order, and these self-proclaimed alchemists know how to mix a batch. Nothing satisfies like a cold pint of their apricot-flavored #9. Keep your eyes peeled west for an Adirondack sunset, while pondering the evening's meal.
A food menu is also available. Tours are free and can be guided or self-guided. No reservations are necessary unless your group exceeds 15 people. Find Magic Hat beers at various retailers in the U.S.
