I had originally intended to go to The Alchemist for a beer and lunch, but they didn't open until 3 PM. My Plan B was The Reservoir, which I knew was right down the street.

This place is located in the center of town. The inside is a big open space filled with tables and chairs. Nice dark wood with a simple modern decor. The bar area is pretty limited with seating. They may have live music, I did notice a PA system set up.

The Reservoir has a really good selection of beer. You can expect about 30 diverse drafts. They offer an organized beer list with information on the beers as well as BA ratings, which I thought was pretty cool. They also feature the 'Vermont Sampler' which is four 5 oz. samples from any Vermont based breweries. You gotta appreciate the allegiance to the plentiful VT beer scene.

Draft highlights included Allagash White, Delerium Tremens, Dogfish Head Red & White, Hill Farmstead Abner, North Coast Old Rasputin, Ommegang Hennepin, Shed Mountain Ale, Smuttynose IPA, Sierra Nevada Bigfoot (2008), Victory Hop Devil and Southern Tier 2X IPA. They also offer about 30 or so bottles with some desirable speciality imports.

Food was really good and we're talking super fresh food, which simply tastes so much better. I would say one of the best features of this place is the emphasis on quality. The beer I had was fresh and served in appropriate glassware.

This place is solid and certainly worth checking out of the in area.

I had, hands down, the best veggie burger I've ever had here. Wow, it was so good. They have an amazing beer selection. They had Lawson's Sunshine IPA on tap! Unreal. That beer seriously competes with Heady Topper. This place is heaven on earth. So good.
