Children age 18 and under will be able to enter with proof of citizenship. Verbal claims of citizenship and identity alone will not be sufficient to establish identity and citizenship for entry into the United States.

U.S. resident aliens will also need a Green Card.

All other foreign country residents will need their valid passport with I94 document. If you are crossing the American/Canadian border and do not have your I94 document with you, you will need your valid passport and a visa. There will be a nominal fee to prepare the I94 documentation for you.
Vermont Brewery Tour
Thursday, 10:30 am - 3:30 pm.

Vermont is home to several breweries, microbreweries, nano-breweries, and brewpubs that produce a wide variety of beer. In 2011 and 2012, the Brewers Association ranked Vermont as the state with the greatest number of breweries per capita. Come along and taste what we’re bragging about! Your first sip of the day starts at Rock Art Brewery. It began production in Johnson, VT in 1997 and is now distributed in Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Maine and New Jersey! Sample four of their amazing beers, learn how they are made and tour the brewery. Travel down the road to Lost Nation Brewery, makers of honest, small batch beer. The brewery takes inspiration from lesser-known European beer styles, along with local Vermont life to guide their brews. Arrive in Stowe at Crop Bistro for a “beer-tasting.” Take a seat in the Biergaten, sample six of their beers. Your brewery tour ends at The Trapp Family Lodge. In just a short time, Trapp Lager has gained high acclaim among lager aficionados. Sample their four lagers during your visit.
