We explore the local bike trails and craft beer breweries....guess I've found my retirement activity!
We stopped for lunch in Waterbury VT, a small town known for Ben & Jerry's, Stowe Mt, Green Mt Coffee and it's craft beers.
We stopped mainly to sample the illusive Heady Topper (Alchemist Brewery Waterbury VT). It was a very good American double IPA. There's lots of hype about this beer and it's difficult to find even in Waterbury. My favorite beer of the trip was from Fiddlehead Brewery another American IPA called Second Fiddle.
This is the hot spot in town; crowded, noisy and a 40 minute wait so we ate down the street. I do like the name and the sign though.
Lake Champlain with the clouds constantly changing the mood...just stunning.
We cycled the 12 mile Island line Trail three times just because it was so beautiful...that's about 70 miles!
Early morning on the part of the trail that crosses the lake, so cool!
The causeway is built atop huge marble boulders in every color.
Magic Hat Brewery...the folks who work here have so much fun!
Great Harvest Bread Company..... amazing bread and ambiance
generous free samples too!
