Stopped in for lunch the other day while visiting VT. The place has a nice feel to it, lots of wood. The beer list was quite impressive. They had about 6 or 7 brews on tap and 2 casks. They had a great food menu as well. I had their Flemish Sour Red and my wife got a tasting of their stout on tap and on cask to compare. All the beer we had was quite excellent. I was very impressed. The waitress knew her stuff and was very helpful. I ordered their Ploughman's Lunch for lunch. It was a loaf of bread, some VT cheese, and some spreads. It was extremely tasty.
This place was recommended to me by a couple BA's and I recommend it to anyone else spending time in Burlington. It was well worth the trip.

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.
