Hop to it, beer lovers! The fifth annual Craft Brew Race Stowe returns to VT for another fun 5k road race followed by a craft beer festival featuring more than 30 Vermont-based breweries. The event will be held on Saturday, May 19 at Stoweflake Mountain Resort and Spa. The event will feature more than 40 breweries, with at least 30 of those breweries coming from Vermont.  

“Stowe is an ideal setting for this race,” says Matthew Gray, President of Gray Matter Marketing, the event organizers. “Not only is it unbelievably scenic, but it is in the heart of Vermont’s renowned beer community.” 

Proceeds from the race will once again benefit Stowe Land Trust. 

“We are delighted to once again be the charitable beneficiary for this event,” says Caitrin Maloney, Executive Director of the Stowe Land Trust. “The race passes by the Mayo Farm, one of our conserved properties, making for a fantastic showcase of our efforts to protect Stowe’s farms and forests.” 

Craft Brew Race Stowe will be held from 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. at Stoweflake Mountain Resort and Spa. Registration is available online through May 18, with day-of registration on May 19.  Tickets are also available for the beer festival only, and designated driver tickets may also be purchased.
