Does anyone have a clone recipe for the Switchback brewery beer that is located in Burlington, VT? I was just there a few weeks ago and love that beer. Thanks for the help!

It looks like they have three different beers at least. Which one are you trying to clone?

Best bet is to contact the brewery. Many breweries will help homebrewers with a clone recipe. They might not give you everything, but they typically will point you in the right direction.

Well their located right in burlington:
160 Flynn Ave
Burlington, VT 05401
(802) 651-4114

Try to give them a call and see if they are whilling to share. If they don't want to give out the recipe see if they give any tours or what the location is like because if they are open to the public maybe you could visit and try to start talking to the right person.

I just had some Switchback while on a business trip in Burlington a few week ago...good stuff. I'd be quite interested in the possibility of a clone if someone has any insight.

I'm headed to the Vermont Brewers Festival - Brewers in a month. Perhaps they will be helpful there. They don't seem to answer their phone much.

Just came back from the brew festival. Every booth I asked for was extremely helpful on which yeast to use, hop schedule, grain bill, etc. Switchback very politely refused all questions.
