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.

Went on a Sunday for Brunch, I came here for the beer actually. Two things on my mind were Double Sunshine and Abner. Mission Accomplished. It was good because it was pretty quiet after what seemed to be a loud crowd the night before. The main reason you come here is food and the great selection on local VT beers. Perfect selection for tourists. The housemade Chili was awesome, the waitresses were friendly and insightful. The burrito I had was humongous and delicious. I'd have to come back here again when in town. I suggest anyone to do the same.

We visited 3 times in 2 days... Day 1 in the afternoon we stopped in at all 3 of the "tri-fecta" and split a beer in each to see where we might go for dinner later that evening. We enjoyed a HF Citra on tap. We went back later that Sat night around 8:30. We were told there'd be a short wait to get a table, so we headed to the bar in back. My wife ordered HF Edward and before I got a chance to order anything, our table was ready. I settled up at the bar and we got a table in the back near the pool table. I was already giddy at the tap selection with Hill, Lawson's and Heady Topper on draft that I really didn't see past that. Our server, Chelsea, got us some HF Citra and I was already happy as a clam. Then we ordered the food. I got the fish tacos and my wife got the flank steak. My tacos were very good, but Christine was just in love with the flank steak. It was cooked perfect and she told Chelsea to march into the kitchen and tell the line, "This steak is f***ing incredible", which she promptly did. They jokingly replied back that they didn't appreciate such vulgarity in their establishment ;)

We both got another beer with dinner - Lawson's for me. We struck up a conversation with Chelsea as she was a beer person too, and we relayed our brewery adventures in Burlington to her and she relayed stories of Hill Farmstead(Chelsea is the "phone girl" that had Sean and his mother looking for her lost phone in the snow at HF.)

We could not have been happier with our dinner and beers.

We went back the next day to visit Chelsea again and get some baked mac & cheese to go. I enjoyed what I'd say was one of the best beer flights I'll ever have in my life - HF Edward, HF Citra, Lawson's Sip of Sunshine and Heady Topper.

This place was our kind of spot with a SUPER high quality beer list and high quality bar food at reasonable prices. Besides the heavy hitters of HF, Lawson's and Alchemist on tap, they also had Fiddlehead, Zero Gravity, Switchback, Lagunitas, Allagash, The Bruery(Humulas Lager), Brasserie Dieu du Ciel(Peche Mortel) and Jack's Abbey. I believe they had something like 38 taps online.

This will be our dinner stop(and probably more) for sure next time we are in town.
