Few things cap off a pedal-pushing road ride better than a cold brew. Spin your wheels in Stowe this weekend with a village block party and critical mass on Friday evening, followed by a dinner party at Piecasso Pizzeria & Lounge. The leg-burning group hits the trails Saturday at the Trapp Family Lodge; catch a brewery tour (and a bratwurst!) at von Trapp Brewing before or after. Riders in town might pause for a tasting at Stowe Public House — Upper Pass Beer and Bent Hill Brewery will each host tastings — or bookend a cruise along the rec path with rosé at Cork Wine Bar & Market. Feel like dancin'? Hit up Stowe Cider on Saturday afternoon to shake a leg with tunes by Burn Permit, along with apple beverages and sample suds from the Alchemist.
