DOVER- The renowned celebration of beer, music, and food celebrates its 23rd anniversary Labor Day weekend much to the delight of visitors that have made it an annual tradition. The Mount Snow Brewers Festival is established as one of the premier events of its kind in the Northeast, named one of “The 20 Best Summer Destinations in Ski Country” by FREESKIER Magazine. There will be nearly 50 different breweries on-hand pouring their beers and ciders from over 100 different taps. The 23rd annual Mount Snow Brewers Festival returns on Saturday September 2, and Sunday, September 3, from 12:30 to 6:30 pm on both days. The ticket windows will open at 10 am each day for both “will call” and “day-of” purchases. Last token and last call are at 5:45 pm. The last pour is at 6 pm.

As always, there will be tons of great food options on the festival grounds with a huge barbecue on Cuzzins deck, along with vendors whipping up kettle korn, crepes, waffles, and a few other surprises to satiate the appetite. There will be quality live music on stage throughout the event starting on Saturday with a performance by Brewers Festival favorite Jeff Tuohy Band rocking out upbeat covers and groovy originals that keep everyone dancing. Sunday offers more live music from Tim Palmieri, The Elliot St. Alibi, and Molly Steinmark & Friends.

Back again this year is the always popular annual team T-shirt contest where the team with the most creative T-shirts gets free admission to the ninth annual Winter Brewers Festival in April. Start the Brewers Festival weekend off by burning a few calories in support of a great cause. For the fourth year, Mount Snow and the American Cancer Society have teamed up to bring the Hops For Hope 5K, a fun run. All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society. The top fundraiser will receive a 2017/18 Mount Snow season pass.

Bring some lawn chairs and lawn games. Please leave dogs at home. This is a beer-focused event and there is not any kids’ entertainment during this festival. Oktoberfest is the kid-friendly event. No coolers are allowed. Additional tokens will be available for purchase at $3 each.
