See, I’ve never seen this stretch of 100, as we always run straight at that light back there out to 15A or some shit towards G Bend. Damn, it got dark quick. The snow sure didn’t help, and the road we turned onto didn’t actually connect to where we needed to be, so we had to criss across cross to right ourselves. But we found ourselves Lost just the same...

Far corner of the building in a set of buildings that are an industrial park behind a residential neighborhood. It’s a small tasting room proper on the end of a brewery. ‘L’ shaped tree slab bar with a plank wood vertical base on the inside wall, seating 10 on hightop wood chairs. No barback to speak of but the wall there holds an 18 tap row inlayed within phat post framings. ‘Genesis project’ growler filler to the left, stereoings to the right, and a large square board further down listing house & guest taps.

Wide wood plank floorings, and drop ceiling with a pair of spinnys & exposed ducts. Red walls all around with mounted cone lamps and light lanternings. Decor, well there’s a painting of a farmhouse that this place is not, a Pilsner Urquell print, a small Orval tin on one wall, and a large long one on the opposite wall over the door to the brewroom, an Arabier print to the rear and I can see an Oerbier print in the big window above the bar, I guess the office. Surely you don’t think you can keep it safe from me. Shirt, um, tree in the rear corner of the bar, and slight kitchenings beyond.

A pair of shorty 4 seat tables just inside the door, and 3 lengths of tree slab bar counter running adjacent to the bar at different heights; lower on the ends on windows offering views of Vermont nighttime mischief and higher in the middle.

12 taps in all. 6 house (a sampler of all dealt in 3oz taster glasses for $5, went there); Gose, 4.5%, excellent, a bit, and I mean just a bit of sweetness there; Vermont Pilsner, 4.8%, really nice, sharp, good bitterness, I do dig it; Petit Ardennes, 4.2%, light, easy drinking, spicy and a bit fruity, total WIN; Saison Lamoille, 5.9%, funky & oddball, I don’t know what or why; Rustic Ale, 5.4%, herby, earthy, pleasant enough; Pitch Black, 5.4%, smoky phenolic, not over the top or full on, but enough, so that, no. Gose, Vermont Pilsner, & Petit Ardennes were the best of ‘em. And 6 guest taps; beer local (Lawson’s Big HAPI India Black Ale), and import (McChouffe), and non beer local heroes; cider (Citizen Cider brose), a Kombucha drink thing (Organic Strawberry Joy Kombucha), and sodas (Rookies Root Beer & Ginger Beer).

Food menu board on the rear wall; cheese & charcuterie, soup of the day (sweet & sour squash butternut), a handful of sandwiches (grilled chee, tempeh & veggie panini, chipotle bacon patty melt, cubano), and a single entrée, that being a NY strip steak. It we hadn’t gone all Worthy, I’d be a grilled cheesin’ as we speak.

The sampler was pretty inexpensive as is everything else ($4 pints, $5 imperial pints, & $10 growlers). All of their house beers are under 6%, actually the 3 of them I liked the most under 5%. Nice sessionable stuff here. Light foodings, I definitely good have ‘etten here. Good crowd, and the music; well, it’s the blues, baby, the blues. Yep, we’ll do this again.

Seriously, now that they have their own exit off Rte 100 you have no excuse not to go here.

The tap list always has at least 6 of their own, awesome guest taps, their own bottle for sale from time to time.

Food is killer, great soups, sandwiches, slow cooked and grilled meats. Dayum, my mouth is watering just writing this review.

This one is a must visit, what are you waiting for? get yor ass over there.

Trip there was 10/29/2014 after our trip to Hill Farmstead. It was a little difficult to get to, but the new road is opening this weekend and it should help a lot. We went there for tastings and food. The outdoor area was closed for the season, so we went and sat at the bar.
We ordered a flight and a sandwich. The flight included 5 of their current beers. We got the 6th one too. The pork shoulder was very good. Our bartender was very nice and informative. No tour was available. I would go back, but would want to hit the other local brewpubs in the area 1st.

Stopped here on my latest Vermont trip for my birthday.

It's set way out in this weird industrial area of Morrisville. Big red building, with a large beer garden. Sat outside, despite the cold, because the bar seemed crowded.

About 10 beers on tap. 2-3 guest selections, the rest are brewed in-house. The Gose is as good as advertised- the rest of the beers were tasty, while not knocking my socks off. I went the day of a bottle release for Bretta Lamoille, picked up 4 bottles of that.

The food is expensive, but quite tasty. They cook it outside, mostly- big grill, lots of BBQ type options, makes the beer garden smell quite tasty. The beer on the other hand, is very reasonably priced. 64 oz growlers are $10, pints are $4 dollars. Are you kidding me?

Definitely worth a stop.

Friendly folks, solid beer, excellent food. Very relaxed and casual setting, service was hospitable but slow. Glad to see they are doing flights now. Also glad to see them slow smoking that BBQ. Really tasty.

Fair prices, not cheap but not exorbitant. Left quite full. 7-8 beers on tap. Rustic, unpretentious. Alleged kimchi was more like vinegar slaw but that's okay. Moderately full on a Thursday afternoon, one server outside in their fenced off "beer garden," one outside. Seemed like they were a little slammed. I appreciate the fact they were chatting up each customer very generously, but that delayed everyone else in their quest for beer and food. Can sympathize because I tend to do the same thing on the customer service end; love talking to the people!

Good beer and fantastic ribs. Is there any better combo? Get a flight, half-rack, and enjoy the experience.
