This place has been a Burlington regular, must visit spot for ever and on my last visit it seemed a bit dated, compared to some of the young upstarts that have been sprouting up in town over the past few years. On the dark side inside, crowded with folks enjoying a comforting meal and a few pints on a winter's eve.

The beer selections I sampled were sort of just OK in a middle of the road sort of way. British style pale ale is decent, but they def. are not pushing any envelopes or doing anything all that interesting here beer wise in my humble opinion. Of course, thats ok and they are free to keep it up year after year, and make some decent coin, just sayin' that its not the kind of place that gets me real excited to go back to.

The out door deck during the warm weather months is a pleasant place to hang out, drink a pint and watch the crowd go by

We have been going here for a few years annually, Vermont Brewers Fest weekends.

A - Inside a little dark, sunroom can get hot in summer, outside patio is super. The inside is loaded with information about the history of the place and its founders the Noonan's.
We had live music this weekend outdoors, a very nice treat.

Q - The beer offerings are broad, there are 2 casks, this past trip had an IPA on cask with Grapefruit to punch up the citrus. The Flanders style Tulach Lies was excellent. We shared a VT cheese platter, saw plenty of burgers, fish and chips etc. going by for the hungrier folks The quality was very good.

S - Lots of activity, sometimes seemed a little long for a re visit from servers, this is often more perceived that timed. They were hustling so no complaints. Our beers were always correct and they keep the water full. Everyone was pleasant.

S - The menu had lots to offer, the beer selection was broad. These two things keep us coming back.

F - As mentioned we had a great cheese plate, and in years past have enjoyed some specials.
The food is pub format and solid.

V - You cannot go wrong here, affordable and consistent. Even the band made note that VPB may be the last place in Burlington where 2 burgers don't cost $30. We all got the meaning.

Seek out this steady solid brew pub.

Cheers
