Whetstone & Vermont State Parks Celebrate Pints for Parks Launch Party

The 2024 Pints for Parks launch celebration will take place on June 29th and 30th, from 12 pm to 5 pm at Camp Plymouth State Park: 2008 Scout Camp Road, Plymouth, VT 05149, with the release of our all-new Golden Hour Helles Lager, inspired by the beauty and majesty of Vermont’s State Parks. 

Pints for Parks is a collaboration between Whetstone Beer and Vermont State Parks. In years past, Whetstone has focused on a different State Park to create a unique, limited-edition beer celebrating a specific park. This year we are celebrating Vermont Parks as a whole given the yearlong nature of the centennial event, and we have brewed up a whole new beer to celebrate the occasion.  In addition, Whetstone will donate proceeds from all Pints for Parks beer to VT State Parks’ partner charity, Vermont Parks Forever.  Join us as we honor the 100th Anniversary of the Vermont State Parks!
