The brewery is nicely located, with easy parking. The atmosphere is very pub like with high tables in the section next to the bar. There is also a patio area that I remember enjoying during the summer months when I was here earlier. The food was pretty good. I had the salmon caesar salad. I've been here before and remember not having anything that I didn't like. It is pretty much pub food, but it hits the spot. The wait staff was very good, the service and efficiency get high marks. The beer is another story, but I'll review that separately. The prices are reasonable and there is really nothing not to like about this place in terms of atmospherics, price, food. The beer is another story.

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.
