Event Details

If the words beer, food and music are some of your favorite words, you'll love the 1st Annual Barre Home Brew Festival & Competition has been postponed from Saturday, May 16, 2020 TO SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3rd (due to COVID19)!

It's a parking lot party at 16 Auditorium Hill in Downtown Barre, from 11am – 6pm.  This 21-plus event features live music, brewers from around Vermont, an exciting home brew competition,  and food vendors to satisfy your appetite.  The purchase of your ticket includes a Souvenir Sampling Glass for all your samplings!

The brewers will be offering a huge variety of beers for patrons to sample. There will also be two live bands playing for your pleasure ALL DAY LONG! The food vendor line up is amazing all on it's own. 

Home brewers competing in the Barre Home Brew Competition will put their best concoctions together for a chance at winning three different prizes! $500 Judges Winner; $500 Fan Favorite; and one lucky winner will become the Corral Cup Winner!  What's the Corral Cup Winner you ask?! We've teamed up with Stone Corral Brewery, who will select one lucky winner! The Corral Cup Winner will be invited to brew a production sized batch of their winning brew at Stone Corral Brewery! We're not done.... That winning batch of home brew will then be launched to the public and be available on tap at select bars and restaurants in Downtown Barre as well as canned and sold locally!

The entire event is held under tents in the parking lot (can you say "Parking Lot Party?!") and, regardless of the weather, the sampling goes on. “Rain or shine, we’ve got you covered!”  We will plan a bonfire in the middle of it all in case spring in Vermont still feels like winter!

Free Parking.  ID REQUIRED for ALL AGES!


*Tickets are NON-REFUNDABLE.
