Vermont Business Magazine Many beers claim to have put Milwaukee on the map as the beer capital of the United States. Instead of trying to put Shelburne, Vermont on the beer-making map, The Fiddlehead Brewing Company is more interested in putting maps on its latest Ramblin’ Cans mixed 4-pack. Specifically, maps created by another Vermont company, Discovery Map International.
Based in Waitsfield, Vermont, Discovery Map International is the leading provider of curated guides to top tourist attractions, cities and towns throughout North America. The designs on the four Ramblin’ Cans, feature Fiddlehead characters with the actual Discovery Map of Shelburne, Vermont as a background.
“People love our maps because of the hidden gems in a town they can find, even if you’re a local. One of the treasures visitors to Shelburne have stumbled onto over the years is Fiddlehead Brewing Company. So, when Matt Cohen approached us about using the map as part of the design for the Rambling Cans, it seemed like a natural fit,” said Peter Hans, president of Discovery Map International.
The Ramblin’ Cans featuring Discovery Map designs include: Martin Wasp: 4.8% abv- Bright and snappy Czech style Pilsner, crisp and light malt profile with subtle honeydew, spice, and floral notes; Queen Connie: 6.8% abv- Brut IPA, super dry, effervescent IPA with a light malt profile and notes of Watermelon Bubblegum, Cantaloupe and White Grape; Wampahoofus, 5.8% ABV, a mythical Vermont Ale- lightly tart and funky pale ale with tropical fruit notes with a light must, fermented with a unique Wild Saccharomyces strain of yeast and dry hopped with our favorite fruit forward hops; and Feegee Mermaid, 5.2% abv- Belgian Style Wit Beer brewed with oats, malted and unmalted wheat, spiced with bitter orange peel and coriander, secondary fermentation on loads of tropical and velvety guava puree.
“We like to think of our brews as works of art and you can absolutely say that Discover Map prints are works of art as well,” said Matt Cohen of Fiddlehead Brewing Company. “What better way to discover the hidden treasures of our area than downing a cold Fiddlehead brew and enjoying the Discovery Map of Shelburne?”
Fiddlehead Brewing Company is located at 6305 Shelburne Rd. Shelburne, VT. For more information, visit https://fiddleheadbrewing.com/.
