Happened to be in Brattleboro for a one day seminar. Great location overlooking the CT River and into NH. Friendly and knowledgeable staff great section on locals on tap and bottle. Looks like they have an outdoor seating area on the roof in good weather. They will be ready in about a month to brew and sell their beers. Hope to be back. They are not far from I-91 for anyone traveling north or south.
They refereed me to the co-op up the street for a great selection of VT and NH beers. Sorry, but no Hillside Farmstead, which is another 3-4 hours to the north.

If you can afford the time and money to stop here, it is worth it. Tap list is a good mix of VT and other beers, but around 12$ for 4 samples, which is a bit pricey. Ive never had trouble picking my choices out of their draft list but it is not quite as good as other places like prohibition pig. Their nanobrew brews are not extraordinary but ive always enjoyed them. Food at this place is excellent and is very creative. Many breweries have a very generic assortment of pub food but this place has a menu that deserves to be a standalone restaurant. I wish they had a little bit better VT draft list, but overall this place is an excellent combination of craft beer and excellent food. My wife and i usually always stop here for dinner on our way back from VT to CT.

I had dinner here last night with family members and then we returned today to enjoy another beer on the rooftop beer garden. The view of the river and the mountain are a nice 'plus' for this brewpub, and the weather was nice to be able to enjoy the rooftop setting.
This is a nano brewery so they have only three of their own beers on tap, but they make up for that by having a selection of guest taps as well as bottled and canned beers from a great selection of breweries, including a few from Cantillon and Drie Fonteinen among others.
The Whetstone Station's beers that were available were an Imperial IPA, an Imperial Stout, and a Roggenbier. All were brewed correctly to style, and the IPA and Stout were graded above style in my taste judgment.
Our food selections were very tasty, and the menu has enough of a variety that there is something there for everyone. This is definitely a place that I will come back to if I'm ever in the area again.

Stopped in for dinner on our way out of Vermont. A very cool spot right on the river. No one was sitting outside in mid November but the huge windows are still great. The outside deck appears to wrap around the water-side of the building. Multilevel restaurant also includes a rooftop beer garden, which obviously was also closed in November.
Traveling with our 14 month old, we were pleasantly surprised to find a ton of other kids/babies in the place, but maybe that's expected at 4pm on a Sunday. Plenty of other non-families there as well, and this place has a "all are welcome" vibe without losing sight of the fact that it's a bar.
It is technically a brewery, but they have only one house beer at a time. I had the black IPA which was fantastic. Other selections included several from VT, including HF, Lost Nation, and Drop In. Pretty much all choices were great- Lagunitas, Old Rasputin, and Victory Red Thunder. Grilled chicken sandwich was very good and the menu had plenty of other options. Nice to see more reasonable prices compared to where we'd been in Woodstock.
Definitely will stop here again when passing through.
