2012 “Pub, Grub and Wine Tour”

Posted by Larry Ticotin, Webmaster on November 26th, 2012

Written by Sue Ticotin

Lagers and ales and vino.  Oh my!  It all started Friday night at the lodge where the partying got off to its usual early start.  No sense in waiting, right?  Some of us (I won’t mention any names) were a little hung over as 45 eager participants boarded the bus early Saturday morning with the sole purpose of upholding the Craigmeur Ski Club tradition of boisterous merrymaking.   We wasted no time belting out “Happy Birthday” to Handsome Glen.   Glen, in turn, led us through an amusing little ditty of  “I Got a Skeeter on My P***r.”  And of course, no trip would be complete without a few rounds of that old favorite, “The Beers on the Bus Go Clink, Clink, Clink.”

Our first destination was the Drop-In Brewery.  If you ever had a dream of owning your own brewery or just making your own beer (a Craigmeur brand, perhaps?), this would be the place to start.  It’s the home of the American Brewers Guild Brewing School.  After consuming several samples, we headed over to Otter Creek, the first brewery to become a USDA-certified organic brewer.  This was followed by a tour of the Lincoln Peak Vineyards Winery where we enjoyed a selection of cheese and crackers and sandwiches, wine tastings, and a surprise birthday cake for Glen.

Next on the tour was Dakin Farms, which is known for its cheese, maple syrup, sausages, and smoked meats. Ken purchased a pepperoni that could easily feed a family of four.  Never one to pass up an opportunity, he gave an unsuspecting audience in the parking lot an engaging demonstration….Our apologies to the lady in the parking lot who witnessed this.

Now at this point, we’ve sampled plenty of beer and wine, filled up on what we thought was “lunch”, and consumed more beer and wine on the bus in between stops.  So what did we do next? We stopped at Fiddlehead and Folino’s for more beer and more food and Shelbourne Winery for more wine.  We noticed that there was another bus exactly like ours parked in front of the winery.  Fortunately, no one made the mistake of getting on the wrong bus, however, our bus almost pulled away without Justin.  Forget something, Diane?

When we reached Magic Hat Brewery, someone (again, no names mentioned) opened the hatch on the roof of the bus to let some air in before we all went inside.  Unfortunately, while everyone was inside, dark ominous clouds crept in and released a short down pour right over the bus (or so it seemed).  Larry and I were making our way back to bus just as this was happening and were horrified to find it raining inside the bus!  Kiersten and Larry tried desperately to close the hatch, but it wouldn’t budge.  By the time the hatch was closed, the seats were aptly soaked.   Funny how no one who had to sit in those seats seemed too concerned.

After many purchases throughout the day of growlers, squealers, wine bottles, souvenirs, and T-shirts, all boarded the bus for our final destination.  We reached Burlington and dashed off to the Church Street Marketplace.  Filled with street entertainers, shops, restaurants, outdoor cafes, and of course, more pubs, the marketplace was the perfect location to relax and enjoy the evening.

Sufficiently inebriated and stuffed to the gills, we headed back to the lodge.  We concluded our trip by singing a round of “Happy Trails to You” and content in the realization that we did our part to boost the economy.

Well, there you have it, another successful pub tour.  Be sure to join Don in 2014 for his next pub, grub, and wine tour in the Disneyland of beer.

THANK YOU, DON, FOR ALL THE BLOOD, SWEAT, AND TEARS THAT YOU PUT INTO MAKING THIS TRIP POSSIBLE.  YOU’RE THE BEST!!!

P.S. to Don:  Did I say that right?
