Right off the interstate so it is an easy lets stop in and check it out type of place.
Interesting interior with the typical bar TV's, a nice bar area and then suits of armor and other antique knick-knacks? Interesting but certainly odd.
Hostess and waitress were both prompt and friendly. So, at least there was little room to complain.
Good beer selection that ran across a nice line of styles. Even a cask choice, always a +0.5 in my book. All of the beers were at least decent....nothing really blew me away but nothing was bad, even the "Canadian" Ale.
A decent place worth the short detour off the highway. Next time maybe we will have an appetite and try the food.

Headed from Boston to Stowe on 12/5... we were on the road, hungry, stopped at a rest stop and grabbed one of those "breweries of New Hampshire" brochures. Who knew our luck (by the time we read it) put us 15 minutes away from Seven Barrel!
Walked in around 2pm on a Monday. Just missed the lunch crowd so it was kind of dead. Our server couldn't have been happier to see us.
Set up is a long hallway down to the dining area, ample bar space to the right (on the way down to the dining area). Lots of wood fixtures, slightly rustic feel to the place. Kitschy decor.
It wasn't until a trip to Maine that my partner finally learned the beauty that is poutine. She originally thumbed her nose at it, but had it once in Maine and once she saw it on the menu here? Yea, that was a no brainer! We got the poutine and the Cheese plate which featured Grafton Village Cheddar, Garfield Smoked Gruyere, and Vermont Chevre Goat cheese. Yea - the food was pretty awesome.
Our waiter was AWESOME. Yea, perhaps it was because we were the only people to sit in his section. However, we could totally joke with him and that's a person that I want waiting on me.
Food selection was awesome, beer selection was pretty good too. There were about 7 beers on draft from Seven Barrells. I had the RIP Stou (which we left with a growler of and stopped in on the way home for a second growler), and the gf got the winter. Additionally they had an Imperial Pale as a part of their Conan the Destroyer Series.
This is a definite stop over for all other trips out to Stowe. It's a diamond in the rough. Good food, I can attest to the stout...but it's a great local gem worthy of hitting up if you're in the area.

I used to live in the Upper Valley and would enjoy stopping by 7 Barrel after work on occasion. Sad to say that was about 14 years ago. Not much has changed at 7 Barrel in all those years, except for the staff. Well, there is one guy that works during the afternoon that has been there all along. The quality of the beer is ok, not overly great or creative, but ok. They usually have a selection of IPA, Red, Brown, or Stout, plus a couple of others to choose from. The food has a British flair and is also ok for Pub food. It is worth stopping in for a beer or two.
