Stopped in here for a quick drink and a bite to eat. Atmosphere was nice. There are two sections: a pleasantly dark bar up front, and the kitchen area in the back where you can get take-out. Quality was good all over. There was a pretty decent tap list, including the likes of Edward and Sculpin, and if that's not good enough for you, there are several bottles to choose from, including some macros...just in case. I got a specialty pizza, which was definitely tasty and made with some good ingredients. Was it worth $19 for a small thin crust? I don't think so. So yeah, prices were pretty hefty, especially on the food. Beer prices were ok, maybe a little marked up. No complaints about the service. Everyone was friendly and on the ball, though it was Sunday night and not at all busy.

Overall, it's a solid place, and will probably be my go-to venue in Montpelier from now on, as it's a heck of a lot better than the Three Penny (overall...not taplist).

Stopped in here while I was in town for the HF Festival, never been here before and once I heard about all of the HF beers on I knew where I was stopping for dinner.

Atmosphere was pretty good. Nice modern space filled with people enjoying themselves. Quality was pretty high. Our pizza was made with top notch ingredients and our beers were served in the correct glassware. Service was a little spotty at times. They were having their anniversary party so I think a bit of leeway needs to be applied but all in all I had no complaints about it. Selection was pretty crazy on our visit, in fact it is the entire reason for out visit. 5 limited HF beers and another limited Grassroots beer plus all of the others. You obviously wont see that every day, or ever again for that matter, so take it with a grain of salt. They appear to keep their tap list updated on the website so I suggest checking that for a better idea. Food was the highlight for me. We got a half bacon half cheese pizza and it was delicious. Prices on the beers were a touch high but the pizza was more than reasonable.

Overall another great option for beer / pizza in downtown Montpelier. I will definitely return next time I am in the area.
