Came here for Montbeerlier for the first time. I have to say I was really blown away by the event & the bar itself. The taplist was 3 chalkboards full of beer, from Southern Tier Backburner to a 2008 Gravitation and a 2007 Old Guardian the list was exceptional. I came in with UA8 and checked it out and chatted with the bar tender and he was really knowledgeable and friendly.

The actual event had about 10 different casks outback with some super limited stuff (Otter Creek RIS aged with Port and double dry hopped ruination) and some solid standards (Lawson's Weiss-K, Stoudt's APA) on cask as well. The event price was a very good deal ($4 for a cup of limited cask beer, can't beat that). But their prices inside seemed a bit pricey to me, but being the only beer bar in the area it's justified. I really wish that they were a bit closer to Burlington so I could go more often! (882 characters)

We visited Three Penny Taproom on our most recent visit to VT. The food was delicious, and the tap list was amazing. I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the area. (177 characters)

The food there is great, especially their weekend breakfast menu.

The taplist is some of the most impressive in the state.

The people who work there are not very friendly. The service is slow because the staff is often too busy socializing amongst themselves.

A Barca-friendly bar. (287 characters)
