I always make a point of stopping in here when in Burlington, even if it's just for dessert and a stout.

Modern and lofty inside the main floor with a fairly large outdoor patio adjacent to the sidewalk. Downstairs it's more of a traditional and cozy pub feel with lots of wood and a plethora of boardgames to play- Great place in the winter.

Have about 25 tap offerings of mostly good, local, Vermont beer with usually a Californian, Belgian, German, and some other quality regional New England offerings. From Vermont you can usually count on Trapp, Hill Farmstead, Lawsons, and Otter Creek on-tap, however, I always find Hill Farmstead and especially Lawsons to be out whenever I'm here (not surprisingly I guess). Never ventured to their beer menu but it looks solid with some vintaged offerings.

Service never seems to be an issue here, with prompt service and staff always eager to recommend something for the style you're into.

The food is quite good, with unique and local ingredients always incorporated into the menu. Can't go wrong with any of their cheese boards, salads, or burgers. It seems I always end up here for dessert which never disappoints.

Prices for food are likely on the higher side for Burlington even though it is quality food, but their on-tap offerings are decently priced.

If you're in Burlington for a night or two this place is a definite must-visit. There's bound to be something in their on-tap or menu list that'll satisfy you along with good food to boot.

Great beer selection and great food! My brother and I went there on a Monday night for drinks and then Tuesday for lunch. They had a great bottle and draft selection. I love places that do 1/2 pours of their drafts because I got to try more!!

We sat at the bar both times. The daytime bartender remembered us from the night before. Probably because not too many people wear Redskins jerseys in Burlington. The bartenders were very nice and provided great service.

For lunch, I got a salad with chicken and cranberries. It was AWESOME!!

If you are in Burlington, eat here. Great tap list, with flights available. The food is excellent. The mussels were as good as any I've had, and the onion rings are just as good as one previous reviewer said. The food is pricey, but I didn't experience the small portions someone was complaining about. Excellent, knowledgeable service as well. I'd definitely go again if I come back to Burlington.

Stopped in for a quick drink on our way out of Vermont.

It's a nice place, service was good, doesn't look like a whole lot on the inside, though.

They had Sip of Sunshine, so that's a big plus. About 25-30 taps, all very interesting stuff, including some unknown (to me) stuff from Canada. That's cool! The food looked amazing, but I didn't sample.

The prices were a bit of a drag, very expensive, but a place like this almost always has prices like that.

They do let you know on the menu what the upcoming taps are for each line- that's something I wish more bars did.

Stopped in for a few beers while in town for the weekend. We sat at the smaller inside bar, about 10 stool's. Apparently they also have a Beer Garden outside with more bar seating. The restaurant was busy and everyone was raving about their food. Beer selection was outstanding and they listed the next beer up in their menu because they frequently run through kegs on the weekend. I had a few pints of Hill's Farmstead and Lost Nation and they were fantastic. I would definitely recommend checking this place out. Great staff and service.
