On tap

Stop by Whetstone Station Restaurant and Brewery on Bridge Street in Brattleboro and try a pint of their newest brew Equinox Amber.

The brewery gives this description on its website: "Spring is nearly upon us, and we're yearning towards it. What better way to pass the time than to sip on a lovely Amber Ale? Its well-rounded maltiness is kept in balance by a generous amount of wheat in the grain bill and judicious amounts of Centennial hops in the kettle."
