Thurs 7/18/13 Noon & 7PM  People wait in hours-long lines on Saturdays in Greensboro Bend to fill growlers with the latest creations from Hill Farmstead Brewery. Others wait patiently at their local beer distributor as Lawson’s Double Sunshine or The Alchmist’s Heady Topper is loaded into the cooler. Vermont’s craft brewing scene remains robust years after the trend got started.

Kurt Staudter, executive director of the Vermont Brewers Association, talks about the state’s many craft brews and we hear from some of the brewers themselves.

Also on the program, Vermont singer/songwriter Kris Gruen joins us for a live performance of his Americana-inspired new folk. His new CD, “New Comics From The Wooded World” has just been released.
