BENNINGTON — There are so many brews being poured at this year’s Southern Vermont Homebrew Festival that they had to move the location.

The annual festival, now in its fifth year, will be held on Saturday, Sept. 24, from noon to 5 p.m., at 210 South Street (across the street from Town Hall).

Attendees will sample wonderful home brews, enjoy great food, listen to live music, watch brewing demonstrations, get brewing tips, and so much more. And some home brewer will walk away with the bragging rights of having their winning brew prepared and served at Madison Brewing Company. There will also be a People’s Choice Award, with a $200 prize.

The tastings throughout the afternoon will include more than 50 brews ranging from Boston Brewin’ Coffee Porter, a Robust Porter, and Husky Al’s Pumpkin Lager, a Spice, Herb, and Vegetable Beer to Vanilla Bourbon Imperial Porter, a Specialty Beer and Hoppy Grief Ale, an English IPA.
