**Recent visits have proven better than in the past. The food menu has greatly improved with more options yet remains high quality. Bumping it up .25**
Decided to stop in here for lunch before heading up to Hill Farmstead for the night. Atmosphere was very laid back, a few people at the bar watching TV and talking amongst themselves about all things beer. Quality seemed to be pretty high across the board. My beers were all served in the correct glasses and my burger was made with top notch ingredients. My bartender was awesome. We talked about beer and my impending trip to Hill Farmstead and he even gave me some stickers when I was getting ready to leave.
The selection was great. All kinds of local beers to go along with a few national offerings. Plenty of Hill Farmstead and Lawson's on which is always welcome in my book. Since I went here for lunch I decided to go with the single burger, which I added bacon to. While my burger tasted great and was cooked to perfection I was a little dissapointed in its size. For $9 + $3! for bacon I was expecting to get my moneys worth. I can get a half pound bacon cheese burger that tastes just as good for $7 around here, a capital city just like Montpelier...Overall a really awesome beer bar that I will definitely return to when I am in the area.

Great experience at Three Penny Taproom!
Beers on tap from Lawson's and Hill Farmstead are reason enough to go. But they go further. The food is very tasty. My girlfriend and I shared the cheese plate, which had a great selection of local VT cheeses. She had an egg salad sandwich, and I had the meat flatbread. Neither of us were disappointed with our choices.
Service is great, but not perfect. The bartenders can be a little slow at realizing you're there, but no big deal.
Overall, if you're in Montpelier or close to Montpelier...this should be your spot. I vacationed in VT and went there three times. Mainly for the beers :)
