Stopped in for a quick beer on a recent trip to Burlington. Definitely a classy looking place... it was comfortable at the bar, and the tables looked nice too, but it wasn't your classic-looking bar... it really looked more like a fancy restaurant.
Lots of beers on tap, mostly Vermont selections. Several Trapp Family beers (I think they had recently had a TF night there), 2-3 Hill Farmstead beers (!), plus a lot of others. I had the HF Foster... like all of their beers I tried on this trip, it was excellent.
We tried a couple of the cheeses... I wasn't a big fan of the Oma cheese, which our server recommended, but I'm sure the quality was great... it just wasn't for me. I saw a sandwich go by that looked fantastic. I'd love to try some more food there.
Our server was fine... she smiled and served us, but she was just a bit snippy and wasn't especially friendly. Just served us and got the job done.
Worth stopping at, if only for their excellent selection.

A great place for food and beer in Burlington. A narrow, canopied entry with the bar upn ahead on the right. One large room. The place is busy, so it's noisy, but still possible to have a conversation.
A phenomenal tap list. Over twenty beers on tap, all of them beers I would like to drink (which made the selection process quite difficult). I finally chose Hill Farmstead Edward, and was more than happy.
My family is vegan. There were vegan foods on the menu, as well as vegetarian foods that can be made vegan. I had Hoppin Joe with black-eyed peas and kale. Excellent. My wife had a black bean burger which she enjoyed. Our son had hummus and a quinoa appetizer, and they were quickly eaten.
We were there early, but the restaurant was packed. Despite this our service was excellent.
Will definitely return.

I visited The Farmhouse October 2013 on a family vacation. Of course my motivation to visit was for the beer. They had Heady Topper, Abner, George, Edward, and a Lawson's beer all on tap/can when I visited. These beers are non existent where I live (Florida). I tried them all and was in heaven. However, in addition to the beer the food was terrific (Had the burger and meatloaf). Way beyond what I expected. It was so good that we ate there twice in 3 days.
The atmosphere was comfortable with an average wait time. The great thing about waiting is that you can visit the beer garden out back before dinner.
I highly recommend this place if you are in Burlington.
