Lowell Thompson is a musician who splits his time between Burlington, VT and Austin, TX. Seven Days calls him “A young tunesmith transformed into a true artistic force.” Big Heavy World says Thompson is “The most genuine sort of musician out there.” Rolling Stone magazine calls his music “Inspired Alt-Country.” Any way you cut it, Thompson’s work speaks for itself and has been vetted by his fellow musicians—hand-picked to share stages with the likes of Graham Parker, Justin Townes Earle, and Dawes.
Back in 2008, three folks who really like beer, really like festivals and really like the Mad River Valley, decided we wanted to bring the fun of a beer fest back to the Valley and that the only way it was going to happen was if we pulled up our bootstraps and did it ourselves!
2019 marks the 12th anniversary of SIPtemberfest, and though we’ve outgrown the deck, we still only have around 24 brewers and only about 800 tickets, making it the Best Little Beer Fest in Vermont. In our 12th year, SIPtemberfest is excited to team up with the Stark Mountain Foundation as our beneficiary. For more information check out the official SIPtemberfest website.
The General Store will also be open for a SIPtemberfest Sale from 11am to 3pm on Saturday, SIPtember 21st. Come early to get geared up for fall with Mad River Glen gear!
