Part of Hallmark Channel's Christmas in July Movie Stunt

STUDIO CITY, CA - July 9, 2024 - A local champion skier and Vermont brew master teams up with an unlikely match to create a seasonal microbrew in order to save her family's business by Christmas when Katie Leclerc (Letters to Santa) and Ryan McPartlin (Cut, Color, Murder) star in A Very Vermont Christmas, a new, original movie premiering Saturday, July 20 (8 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Channel.

It's Christmastime in a Vermont ski town where Joy (Leclerc), a young brew master and local champion skier, runs her family's classic ski pub, Mogul Joe's, with her mother, Mary (Joanna Herrington, Christmas Camp). Times have been tough for Mogul Joe's since Joy's father passed away and she wonders how they're going to pay their bills this Christmas. One day Joy's ex-boyfriend Greg (John Forest, 30 Second Somebodies) wanders in and tells them about the new Brew-Ski competition he's holding at his rival establishment, Frosty's. Joy and Mary are intrigued as winning the competition may be the Christmas miracle they are looking for. Meanwhile, Joy meets Zac (McPartlin), a charming but struggling novice skier, on the mountain when he crashes into her getting off the lift. Joy hesitates when she is informed that Zac is the beer distributor for Scholz Beer who supplies Frosty's. However, Zac wins her over with his charm and exceptional beer tasting pallet. Joy agrees to give Zac ski lessons and in return, he helps her create a new seasonal microbrew called Hoppy Holiday IPA for the Brew-Ski competition. Their feelings for each other blossom as Joy and Zac's new holiday IPA sells like crazy and seems to turn her business around. However, when a suspiciously similar brew shows up at Frosty's, Joy can't help but suspect Zac because she believes he's the only one who knows the secret recipe. As Christmas Eve is fast approaching Joy races to uncover the truth behind the thief of her new recipe in hopes of saving her family's business and rekindling her new romance with Zac.

A Very Vermont Christmas is from Off Camera Entertainment. Stephanie Slack, Margret H. Huddleston and Ryan McPartlin are executive producers. Mark Donadio and Miriam Marcus serve as producers. The film is directed by John Stimpson from a script by Steven Kent and Pamela Rice.
