This brewpub is located right downtown in Bennington. Cant miss it on the main drag. Walking in there is a small foyer and then the bar is directly in front of you. 8-11 stools on a diagonal bar. there are a few arcade games to the right of the bar. Classic Ms. Pacman, Galaga and something else.
Walking past the bar there are several table chair setups. There is a riser in the middle back of the room and maybe bands set up there I dont know. A flight of stairs leads to more dining seating area.
The brewing equipment is behind the bar.
A large mural covers one wall which shows the brewing process in picture form but no descriptors. Was cool to have crows flying in bags of grain from the UK.
The beers were 6 house regulars and a rotating seasonal. I had the scottish ale which was fairly mild, the seasonal was an IPA and I bought a growler of the old 76. $10 new, $8 refill, $25 new swingtop. The food was quite yummy. Typical pub grub although pulled pork and reubens were missing, which are two staples for a brewpub IMO.
I had a bison burger which was pretty tasty and my wife went with a veggie burger that she liked except for the tabouli which was not very balanced and was slathered on covering all other flavors. She scraped most of it off and enjoyed her sandwich much more. The service was very friendly, but never asked if I wanted a 2nd beer, and didnt take away our appetizer plate/bowl very promptly. Overall a good place to hit up, just dont expect mind blowing beers.
