Fiddlehead Brewing Fundraising Update:
2016 Mastermind Thank you for all of your support! Through donations and can releases, we were able to double our contribution from last year and raised over $100,000! That money is going directly to the good folks at the University of Vermont Children’s Hospital. While it is still being decided where the money will be most useful to the hospital’s patients, we are very excited to be able to contribute to our community. Looking forward to next year’s fundraiser. Maybe we can double THIS years contribution!
We’re gonna be cool. Now Ringo, I’m gonna count to three, and when I count three, you let go of the banana, sit your ass down, and we gonna have a beer. But when you do it, you do it cool. Ready? One… two… three.

In the tumultuous world of craft beer where breweries popup and established breweries going under is the norm, there is a short list of breweries that have the staying power of decades, much less centuries.
Dupont started 60 years ago in the 1950’s which is impressive but seems young in comparison to the the worlds oldest brewery, Weihenstephan, which can trace it’s roots back to at least 768.
Have your palate find out why Dupont and Weihenstephan outlived 1,000’s of breweries over the years during this wonderful tasting.
The source of its pearling, effervescent taste is the secret fermentation process which we have developed especially for our crystal wheat beer. It quenches your thirst like no other beer. With its elegant appearance, it is the specialty of our brewery. Goes well with fish, seafood and light dishes.
Weihenstephan | Hefe-Weissbier Dunkel
Supple, malty and mellow. Its harmonious flavor is the great strength of our dark wheat beer. Not only as a good combination with hearty dishes.
Weihenstephan | Original Lager
A good beer takes time. The long lager time makes our pale beer a matter of mild, flavorful beer enjoyment. Brewed in accordance with a centuries-old beer tradition on Weihenstephan Hill.
Weihenstephan | Vitus
A light-coloured, spicy single-bock wheat beer, for both beer lovers and the beer connoisseur. Extra long and cold storage in our monastery cellars makes this single-bock a really special beer with full body and a distinctively great mouthfeel. Prost!
Dupont | Avec les Bons Voeux
Strong Saison 9.5% ABV
Avec les Bons Vœux translates in English to, “With best wishes of the Brewery Dupont.” First brewed in 1970 as a Christmas offering for Dupont’s most loyal customers, it has become one of the shining gems of the Brewery’s collection. Brewed with a selection of Dupont’s signature yeasts and given a longer maturation phase, the resulting beer has a full and malty richness with flavors of banana, clove and lemon peel.
Dupont | Saison Dupont Vieille Provision
Farmhouse Ale, 6.5% ABV
Saison Dupont Vieille Provision is considered the flagship of the Saison style and is the most admired and imitated beer in the world. Full-bodied and malty, Saison Dupont Vieille Provision is beloved for its distinct peppery bite and unique flavor derived from Dupont’s signature strain of yeast.
