Since its inception in 1994, Magic Hat Brewing has been a microbrew mainstay in Vermont. The brewery keeps it local at HeavyFest, an annual benefit for Big Heavy World, the Burlington-based nonprofit dedicated to promoting Vermont-made music. Revelers raise a glass to summer's outdoor concert season with sets from Swale, Gowanus, Soule Monde, Rough Francis and Kat Wright & the Indomitable Soul Band (pictured). Continuous tunes thread through the afternoon, enlivening brewery tours, an outdoor beer garden, live graffiti art and plenty of good eats.
