Stowe's Craft Brew Race & Festival


STOWE, Vt. - Mixing up the competition with some craft brews.

Sounds unique, but that's exactly what you could expect at Saturday's Stowe Craft Brew Race.

More than 1,000 runners started with a 5k, and finished with some local craft beers at Stoweflake Mountain Resort.

It's one of the largest race-meets-beer festivals in the country.

The event included 50 craft breweries, unlimited sampling and live music.

"A buddy of mine came up from Rhode Island and said that I should run and get some free beer, enjoy myself and have a good time," said Michael Finnefrock, from Williston.

"A lot of food, great beer, great craft beer, a good race. A little challenging one though, hot," said Matt Ruscher, from Providence, RI.

The festival also served as a fundraiser.

A portion of the $5,000 raised on Saturday goes to Stowe Land Trust which is dedicated to the conservation of nature and agriculture in the Stowe community.
