Recently made a pilgrimage here for three nights with my wife... we told ourselves that we were also going to Vermont for the skiing, but let's be honest here... it was for the beer.
The Three Penny is small, as other reviews have stated, but in a nice, welcoming, cozy way. It can get crowded at times, but I never felt at all claustrophobic or bounced around.
The tap list is fantastic... a perfect balance of locals (discovering Hill Farmstead on this trip was definitely one of the highlights), other Americans, plus imports from Belgium, Germany, and beyond.
The food menu changes daily. It could be several cheeses, a couple of sandwiches, and pistachios one day, and then tacos and the like another. Great, local ingredients make for some extremely tasty food that doesn't overfill.
But, the one area where this place really stands out is the service. I have never been to a bar where every single person I made contact with that worked there was so GENUINELY nice. Scott, Kevin, Matt and Wes are fantastic guys who are extremely passionate about what they do. You really couldn't ask for a nicer set of people.
It was depressing to leave after that third night. I wish this was my neighborhood bar! Well worth the 7.5+ hour drive... we will definitely be back.
