Finally made the two hour trek up to Montpelier on a separate beer mission and after it's successful completion we took the short ride to Three Penny and it was well worth it (by far the highlight of our trip). After easily finding parking in a nice, safe downtown, I was expecting to walk into a hippie beer nazi, snob joint and was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by some nice people (I think they can tell when a rookie walks in, because that was who was letting door slam all afternoon). I Was almost knocked dead by seeing several different Hill Farmsteads, Lawsons and Alchemists on tap- beers that are never seen, but always talked about in my part of VT and the bartender complied by pouring us a sample whenever we asked. Food is traditional pub food, but just different enough to keep it interesting. Will be back ASAP and will be careful not to let the door slam.

Stopped here on the way home from me and my roommate's Waterbury trip. A beer and food lover's paradise. The beer selection is outstanding- it's no wonder the place is frequently mentioned as one of the best beer bars in the Northeast, and the country too. About 25 taps or so, lots of good Vermont stuff from Hill Farmstead, Lost Nation, Zero Gravity, Lawson's and others, plus other great stuff from around the country and world. HF Harlan, S&S#1 and Allagash Curieux tasted really good that day. The food was your typical fancy beer bar small plate fare- the pickle plate was very tasty, as were the sandwiches. Staff is incredibly knowledgeable, bartenders and waitresses alike. Place was crowded, as it probably always is, but the service was still very attentive. One of the best beer bars I've ever been to, hands down. Highly suggested.

Copied from my TripAdvisor review

After touring the capitol building we hit this place up for lunch. Located in the downtown area it's easy to walk around, that is if the construction doesn't block you every move. We were seated in a booth with plenty of room for the 1 year old in a high chair. For beers we ordered the abner and the George, both very nice. My grinder was different than back home. In Des Moines we actually have Italians, and if your lucky the guy preparing you food remembers the boat ride over. Instead of loose meat this was a patty. The spice and bread brought out the flavors so much it was just amazing. My wife's grilled cheese was very nice. If in Montpelier definitely stop here.
