Whetstone brewpub expands distribution through Craft Vermont
BRATTLEBORO — The team at Whetstone Craft Beers has formed a new partnership with Craft Vermont, expanding Whetstone beers beyond their own brewpub.
Having recently opened a new 15-barrel production brewhouse up the road from their waterfront restaurant and nano-brewery, the owners of Whetstone Craft Beers are now capable of producing enough beer to be sent all over the state of Vermont.
Before teaming up with Craft, the only place you could enjoy fresh Whetstone beer was at the Whetstone Station Restaurant and Brewery at 36 Bridge St.
The first keg pick-up from Craft occurred mid-February and the beer will be available at other pubs and restaurants soon.
Whetstone has 10 different beer styles available. The brewery at Bridge Street continues to brew up smaller batch offerings as well and has transitioned to a more experimental brewing space.
Recently the brewers at Whetstone have run several small batch experiments referred to as the "Third Rail" series.
In each case the same beer was finished three different ways and guests were asked to select their favorite.
"It's great to finally have some flexibility to be able to do fun projects like this again," co-founder Tim Brady said in a statement. "In the past we were struggling to keep up with our general production demand; this expansion has reinvigorated the creativity we were founded on."
