BRISTOL — Vermont, currently home to more microbreweries per capita than any other state in the union, is about to welcome one more. Hogback Mountain Brewery will soon be ready to hit the shelves.
Last Saturday the fire departments of Bristol, Monkton, Lincoln, New Haven and Starksboro held their annual food drive to benefit the Have a Heart Food Shelf.
The food drive set a new record. Over 4,650 pounds of food was donated by the citizens of the five-town area.
