Visited while in burlington last weekend. Made a point to check it out before i left town. Glad i did.

Very cool space. I was told it used to be a mcdonalds restaurant and you can tell after being in there. The bar is what used to be the register, so not a ton of seats there. However, great use of the outdoor space and very well decorated. Nice vibe for drinking some beers.

Multiple taps for Hill Farmstead, one for a Lawson's brew, and plenty of Heady Topper cans. That alone should warrant a visit while in Burlington. Other standouts for me was SN Foam and Stillwaters Premium.

A bit pricey for Burlington, but if you want to source some hard to find local brews definitely worth stopping by.

(Really thought I reviewed this when I was here in 2013)

One of my favorite bars! The downstairs is a cozy cold winter dream to me, with fantastic beer to boot. The food menu is unique, and tasty at that. Service is great, and the staff if VERY knowledgeable.

Sat at the bar on a cold November night. Packed house at 7:00 on a Friday night. Tacked into a Lawsons Sip of Sunshine....delicious. Has a cheese plate, a meat plate, bread and oysters. And more beer. Left extremely happy. If you only have time for one meal in Vermont this is the place.

Very nice place. Good atmosphere. Nice, knowledgeable staff. Lots of different beers on tap. Wide selection that seems to be almost exclusively local foods. You can't go wrong.
This place is worth it during any visit to Burlington. They have a great selection of beers on tap from all over the place (including all the 'big' ones from VT). The food is excellent and well-suited to a beer place. The Cheddar Ale soup is excellent. The burgers are very good and everything else looked outstanding.
The menu is not insanely varied. Burgers, a few entrees, some apps and cheeses. The desserts are very good as well. It is perhaps a touch expensive compared to some places, but there is no question in my mind that it is worth it (and I'm a cheap bastard...).
Looking at the menu it feels like there should be another page, but beer's the reason to be there anyway, and as far as that goes, the hardest part is picking!
Always worth a stop. Fabulous!

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.
