More Summer Fun: Food & Water Watch Helps Vermont Brewers Festival Go Bottled Water-Free

Some folks are just lucky, I guess. As part of my job this summer, I get to attend the Vermont Brewers Festival, on the shore of Lake Champlain in Burlington, Vermont along with fellow FWW staff members Denise, Zach and Rachael. How is THAT related to food and water?? Well, as part of our work to promote tap water, Food & Water Watch is dedicated to helping event planners go bottled water-free‚ and in this case, we partnered with the Vermont Brewers Association, a group of 18 artisan brewers up in the Green Mountain state who are concerned with reducing their environmental footprint. The festival, now in its 17th year, features 30 artisan brewers and annually welcomes about 12,000 people to three tasting sessions. It promises to be a great time with its lovely lake backdrop and wide variety of craft brews.

So, if you’re in the region and you have a chance to stop by the festival, come check us out. Well be helping hand out local Vermont tap water to all the festival‚ attendees, making sure everyone stays hydrated while they sample some of Vermont‚ finest brews. Well also be available to talk to you about our Take Back the Tap campaign, and you can even buy a stainless steel Take Back the Tap canteen to sip your tasty tap water out of. Wed love to meet and talk with you!

If you’re in another part of the country, don’t worry: we have organizers all over the U.S., and wed love to help you take your event bottle-free, too. Let us know if you’d like our help, or just check out our guide, and just in case you cant be there, well try not to have too much fun without you.
