10th Annual Brew-Ski Fest

The Salisbury Fall Festival may be canceled for this year, but the 10th Annual Brew-Ski Fest returns to the Salisbury Ski Jumps Sunday, October 10, 2021 with music, pumpkins, cornstalks and over 30 craft breweries offering visitors over 200 examples of their best brews.

For the past 10 years, the popular event has been delighting beer aficionados  with its rich diverse beer offerings in a fun intimate setting.

This is no cattle call you see. Unlike the big  beer -tasting events  where you stand in line seemingly forever to get a taste,  at Brew-Ski you walk right up, ask for a beverage and chat with  knowledgeable folks  from breweries around the country.

Stateline Wine and Spirits which sponsors and organizes  Brew-Ski Fest to benefit Salisbury Winter Sports Association (SWSA), boasts an exciting lineup of popular beers including  Abomination, Athletic Brewing Company, Berkshire Brewing Company, Black Hog, Brewery Legitimus, Captain Lawrence, Counter Weight, Devils Back Bone, Dogfish Brewery, Elysian, Fat Orange Cat, Founders, Full Moonshine, Goose Island, Great Falls Brewery, Harpoon, Half Full, Jack Daniels’ Cocktails, Litchfield Distillery, Makku, Miami Cocktails, New England Brewing Company, Norbrook, Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada, Skygazer, Troegs, Two Chicks, Two Roads, and UFO.

The folks from Sunday in the Country Food Drive will be offering brats, burgers and dogs for sale to benefit their food program.

The Steve Dunn Band will provide live music.

Tickets for Brew-Ski Fest are $30 per person in advance and $35 at the door. Advance tickets are available online at and at Stateline Wine and Spirits in Canaan, 860 824-7295 and Ledgebrook Spirit Shop in Winsted, 860 379-4216.

Proceeds from the event, which will be held rain or shine,  will benefit SWSA’s youth skiing programs.

And don’t forget the hugely popular Golf Ball Roll! Buy a numbered golf ball and watch as hundreds of them cascade down the ski jump landing hill- the  ball that travels furthest wins the prize.
