I stopped by here for lunch on the way back from visiting Hill Farmstead thanks to the excellent recommendation of a few BA's.
12 or so taps, a few of which are hidden in a back room that isn't open at lunch. If you're not local you probably want Hill Farmstead, so ask - they had (the incredibly awe inspiring) Edward on tap in back. A few locals, a few non-locals, but all top notch stuff. I didn't dive into bottles, but they had a small but solidly crafted list.
I was told to get the "Green Mountain Special" pizza, and it was as delicious as advertised. I could be back here 10 times, and I'd probably order the same thing every time. Fairly large pizza menu and the sandwiches I saw others eating looked big/tasty.
The atmosphere is very "Vermont" - party country store, part funky hodge podge of a bar, part tables/decor that time forgot, and an interesting outdoor area with a bunch of picnic tables on the grass.
Service was pleasant - one guy was running the shop for everybody and was more than happy to leg pints back and forth outside.
Good value - lunch for two with 4 beers came out to $40-ish.
Bottom line - this is an oasis in the middle of an extremely rural area.

Nine beers on tap - eight of which were from Vermont, and including Double Dose - which was just as fantastic as advertised - and Hill Farmstead. The only non-local brew on tap was Founders. Looked like a decent bottle selection, too.
They obviously specialize in pizzas, but I enjoyed an excellent hot Italian sausage sub.
There isn't much to say about the atmosphere. It's a relatively small place, with a couple bar areas, an attached shop, and an outside deck area (probably more useful in the Summer).
Definitely a good spot to stop if you're visiting.

Been wanting to check out Parkers Pie since my first trip to VT but it has just never worked out, that was going to change this past trip for the HF Festival. Stopped in with a whole mess of people from all over the world.
We decided to pack up a few cars worth of people and head up for dinner after the Festival, that was a bit of a mistake, but more on that later. Atmosphere was pretty awesome. Inside was a little packed so we moved outside and grabbed the only available picnic table. It was so nice out so I had no problem at all spending some time outside with friends, new and old. Quality seemed pretty high. Top notch pizza ingredients make for some amazing pies. Draft beer selection was good but painfully slow at the front bar while the back bar was much faster it didn't have as good of a selection. Bottle list was awesome, we picked up two of the last Lou Pepe's they had for a more than reasonable price. Now for a bit of the bad. The service was painfully slow and we had to wait almost three hours for our food. I know it was the saturday dinner rush but come on, they said one and a half hours for a pie not three hours. We heard a couple different excuses as to why, seemed to change with each person we asked. Once our food did come it was excellent. Their crust is amazing and the wide range of toppings makes is really easy to find something you like. Also got the maple wings and they were excellent as well. Prices were on the borderline of pricey but the quality made up for a bit of it.
Overall, service aside, an awesome little pizza shop in the middle of nowhere. I will definitely return in the future, I will just make sure it is an "off" time.

A- Perfectly quaint piece of paradise off an intersection of dirt roads, across the road from a cow barn. Inside is a sort of old barn renovated with all new wooden interior and a concert stage upstairs. You're bound to find lots of beards and flannel here.
Q- They serve the best pizza around paired with some of the finest beer selection I've found in such a secluded location.
S- The staff is always on top of their game to make sure that your food is great and your beer glass is full.
S- They're mostly a pizza place, but they have some other things too. But just go with the pizza.
F- Like I said, best pizza around. Bills can get to be a bit pricey, but come with some friends and split some pizzas and you're golden.
