VERMONT — Amidst the thick muck and agricultural destruction at the University of Vermont’s Borderview Farm in Alburgh last September, walked a seemingly unlikely pair: UVM agronomist Heather Darby and Bobcat Café and Brewery brew master Mark Magiera.

For several years, the two have been studying hops together. And as they strolled through the UVM hop, barley and wheat farm, they couldn’t help but think about the many farmers who were reeling from the devastation wrought by Tropical Storm Irene.

MIDDLEBURY — For two decades, Salisbury residents Steve Parkes and Christine McKeever-Parkes had dreamed of owning and operating their own small brewery.

That dream is now becoming reality.

Workers on Tuesday were finishing installation of 10 gleaming stainless steel tanks and related conduits that will soon be producing 450-gallon batches of what will be the couple’s signature “Sunshine and Hoppiness” beer at Drop-In Brewing Company at 610 Route 7 South, former home of Dundon Plumbing & Heating.

MIDDLEBURY — As sirens sped toward Otter Creek Brewing of Exchange Street Monday morning, hundreds of gallons of amber-colored beer soaked slowly into the earth.

It might seem like a scene from a beer-lover’s nightmare, but the 40-barrel fermenting tank that exploded inside the Middlebury brewery around 10 a.m. was no figment of the imagination. The explosion damaged pipes and another tank, blowing out an outside wall panel and dumping beer across the brewery floor and the parking lot outside.

MIDDLEBURY — A Salisbury couple is seeking permission to transform the former Dundon Plumbing & Heating headquarters at 610 Route 7 south into a small brewery and trade school for aspiring beer producers.

Steve Parkes and Christine McKeever-Parkes are advancing the project, which would provide a base of operations for the American Brewers Guild (ABG) Brewing School. Steve Parkes — former brewmaster for Otter Creek/Wolavers Organic Beers — has been leading the ABG’s school since the late-1990s.
