For those of you who don't know, this Saturday, September 24 SIPtemberFest is happening down in the Mad River Valley.  The bad news, however, is that I waited this long to tell you about it... and now it's sold out!  The good news, on the other hand, is that this simply amazing event is quickly gaining a reputation as one of the best beer fests in the Northeast, meaning you're sure to have a chance to go next year.  The extra good news is that you don't need a SIPtemberFest ticket to go to the after party at Hostel Tevere just down the hill in Warren, VT.  Consider yourself tipped off- the after party at Hostel Tevere will be a completely mind-numbingly awesome time, with copious amounts of blatantly, ridiculously good beer and no-messin-around eats taboot.  The after party starts around 5:00 in the afternoon.  Seriously, you don't want to miss it! (No, serisouly- you should go down there!)
