From notes 11/13.
Through the sleet and snow to the warm and inviting Mule Bar my girlfriend and I traveled with great anticipation.
The Mule Bar has a pretty basic setup which fits in perfectly with their keep it simple approach. Some good music played in the background at just the right volume. There were a couple of groups at tables enjoying themselves and a few individuals at the bar discussing the finer points of their favorite brews. I must note that during this trip it was quite evident that Vermonters are sophisticated beer drinkers, more-so than anywhere else I've traveled thus far.
Their very respectable, albeit smallish, tap list favored regionals and locals (Long Trail, Jack's Abby, Oxbow, Hill Farmstead). It's hard to beat a well curated tap list such as this one, and proof positive size doesn't always matter. When it comes to beer, freshness and attention to detail is king.
The bartender wasn't intrusive, but was always on hand when you needed him. We had the charcuterie and calamari which were both quite tasty and reasonably priced. Parking was a bit troublesome, but that doesn't lessen the taste of the beer at this unique beer destination. Highly recommended.

I had a very nice evening here recently. Great service, a very nice meal and they had a very nice tap list going. I drank Edward and Lawson’s Sip of Sunshine all night though they had other nice choices on tap and of course Heady by the can. I was there on Memorial Day weekend so it was a great place to go to avoid the Burlington crowd downtown.
