Hats Off to Magic Hat!

Many thanks to our friends at Magic Hat who have again brewed a special beer to celebrate and support Lake Champlain. The scotch ale Wee Heavy Champ was released for 2017 at The Artifactory in South Burlington during a late February gathering of lake and beer lovers. Attendees rocked to live music from The Tenderbellies, noshed yummy food, sampled great beer and toasted the lake and the advocacy work necessary for clean water. If you missed the event you can still sample the limited edition brew for a while yet. The brew is on tap at area eateries and four-packs are sold throughout the watershed. Check out Magic Hat's sipcode locator to find the lake brew. In addition to making a special beer to honor Lake Champlain, Magic Hat has made a $5,000 donation to LCC and will provide us with volunteer assistance throughout the year.
