Another solid bar in the heart of Burlington. Nice selection of brews. Always good to see Humble Patience on the nitro. Always better to see Jay Peak Tram Ale available in Burlington! Service is usually on. Great pours on the nitro, a sign of a top notch bar staff. Good place to stop and grab a pint or two when in Burlington. Sometimes they squeeze in live music too with a very small stage in the center of the place. Overall, a canned irish pub feel though. Go to Nectar's around the corner instead.

Ri Ra is hit or miss and it really depends what you are looking for. It's a reasonably busy restaurant during the day. The food is good, if a little pricey, but they have half price burgers on Wednesday. The ambiance is exactly what you'd expect for a fake Irish pub, but I mean that in a good way. At night, it turns into a college bar, which is a bit odd given that there are much cheaper bars in Burlington. However, they have a DJ on Friday night and there's no cover. The beer list is alright, but pales in comparison to some neighboring bars. You can order whiskey from the menu of The Whiskey Room which is next door.

A pretty decent Irish-style pub in the outdoor shopping mall on Church Street. There are much better places for beer enthusiasts extremely close by, but RiRa is still worth a stop on your pub crawl. Nice atmosphere overall, tidy decor. Crowd can get rambunctious, but what do you expect? Service is decent. Beer selection is okay, with your general British & Irish staples and a few micros. Food menu isn't extensive, but everything they have is tasty and well-made; typical Irish pub fare, as would be imagined. I particularly like the Kilcooly sandwich.

Again, there are much better places to explore when you're in town, and there are a few places I've yet to check out. But RiRa is still a good stop, perhaps for a quick lunch.

On the main tourist/pedestrain drag in downtown Burlington. Just a short walk from the much more interesting Amer.FlatBread and Farmhouse B & G..Go here for a burger and a pint of something mainstream. Dont ever expect anything too interesting on tap. Irish themed in a near Disney sort of way. A mess of flatscreans with the game on..Dull tap list, sole highlight was a selection from switchback...yawn...decent place for me to take my college student daughter to, cuz she likes the burgers, but not much else going on here, especially beer wise...you can see American Flatbread across the square from the rear of this joint....
