Pints for Parks

“Brewing up adventure” isn’t just a motto for us, it’s a way of life. Our partners David Hiler, and Tim and Amy Brady were brought together not just by a love of beer, but a love of adventure, and a passion to support others in their pursuits of adventure.

That’s why we created the Pints for Parks project benefiting Vermont State Parks through Vermont Parks Forever.

Twice a year we will brew up a limited-edition beer in honor of one of our state parks. Whetstone will donate proceeds from Pints for Parks limited release beers and merchandise to the Vermont State Parks foundation, Vermont Parks forever. But get it while you can and don’t forget to save the keepsake sticker that is on every beer can!

In addition, during each release month, our brewery guests will have the option join us in our support for VT Parks Forever through table tent prompts at all of our properties.

We kicked Pints for Parks in May with the Jamaica State Park Kolsch at the Whitewarer Release at Jamaica State Park in May. Our next release will be September 30, 2023 at Quechee State Park.

But you don’t need to wait for our release to support Vermont State Parks. Learn about Vermont Parks Forever here.

Vermont State Parks by the numbers

There is a Vermont State Park within a ½ hour drive of every town in Vermont and they welcome one million visitors each year.

About Vermont Parks Forever: Vermont Parks Forever is the nonprofit foundation for Vermont’s 55 state parks. VPF was founded in 2013 to enhance and protect Vermont’s state parks by inspiring stewardship of natural places, providing educational experiences, and improving access for those who would otherwise be unable to experience all the benefits the state parks have to offer. Visit to learn more.
