Upon entering the former McDonalds, one feels the bar is slightly sterile. Small 10 seat bar upon the rear along the entry wall and a large expansive room of tables elsewhere. Nice rustic market feel with a small portion of the kitchen exposed, lots of wood and stone.

Bar has 16 or so taps, many very good local and many national craft brews including at least one from Hill Farmstead, Rock Art. Bottle list has equal parts local, including some limited options from Lawson's and Hill Farmstead and voltage bottles.

Food menu has lots of local sourced meats, cheeses and veggies. All options well constructed and full flavored. Service was friendly and attentive although slightly distracted as many employees socialized on the slow day.

A nice vibe unique to this town. Good options on draft and bottle are the star, though the bar area is a bit small for long term hanging out. Food was good but pricey.

Very good selection of premium craft brews. The food is great too. Go in the summer when you can enjoy the beer garden, or downstairs in the winter in front of the fireplace!

Stopped here for lunch, a flight and a pint. It was delicious and would definitely go back. Little pricey from a food perspective but totally worth it.

The place gets packed quickly. Fortunately there's a great hang downstairs - you can get finger foods and find an awesome beer from a very good taplist while you wait for your table upstairs. The food upstairs is great farm to table items, and the same taplist from downstairs applies. Overall, great place - and is a must-go if in the area.

Awesome bar and really good food. If your time in Burlington is limited, and you are both hungry and in search of some hard to find local brews, this place is a perfect one stop shop. It's a little expensive, but worth it.

(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.
