Rock Art Brewery, in my humble opinion, may be the most under-rated Vermont brewery. To those who believe Vermont is just Heady Topper, Lawson's, and Hill Farmstead that is understandable. But Rock Art brewery has been in Morrisville for so long because it is the brewery for the common people, the crunchies if you will. Rock Art may not make their way onto the critic's top beer list, but what they do make are damn fine beers. Not even to mention how much more affordable their brews are compared to the big 3($9 for a growler of DIPA). The atmosphere of the brewery is excellent, you can smell the malt before you even walk in the door. Upon entering you will notice an excellent gift shop, plenty of beer, and a smiley tasting room staff who really takes the time to talk to customers and shoot the shit.
Now for the beer: Rock Art has traditionally been a more malt-forward brewery in my book, but they even grow their own hops. There hasn't been a beer from Rock Art that I haven't liked. Now that they're playing with barrel aging and experimenting with new varieties, I am very excited to see what Rock Art continues to produce in the future.

Following lunch at the spectacular Prohibition Pig, down Route 100 in Waterbury, followed by some tasting at Lost Nation, located in Rock Art's former location, a friend and I swung by for some samples and some shopping. Several styles were to be had - and quaffed. The tasting room is really a well-stocked store with a bar in it. That said, we did not leave empty handed: my friend purchased a case of Scotch Ale; yours truly, some Russian Imperial Stout. (And I don't care about Putin's land grab; I lovw the stuff.)
When in the Waterbury-Stowe Area, this makes for one leg of a great Vermont crawl.
