Day five of my beer-venture brings me to Burlington to visit with some friends. My friend had recomended Vermont Pub & Brewery, and we decided to give it a try.
We entered into a small area with the growler cooler directly in front of us. The bar to the right, went through a doorway to find the brewing equipment to the left and the other side of bar to our right. We were seated in the front "sun" room. The only thing I found odd was the wall of glass seperating the sun room from the bar, but I figured it was there because they wanted to be family friendly.
I opted for the flight of six samples to start. My samples included Micks Stout, ESB, IPA, Rocktoberfest, Blue nile #2 and the hefe. They were very pleasent to drink. I ordered a pint of Blue nile #2, it is rye beer brewed with blue lotus flowers, very tasty indeed.
I oredered the angus burger with swiss and pub fries. I thought it was good. The waitress was very nice and offered suggestions. She answered any questions that we had about the beer, and even told us that the Seven Barrel (which we are more familiar with) was the sister berwery. I realy thought the newspaper menu was a cool idea.
Overall; a pleasent experience, and I would say this deserves a visit!

Always worth a visit if you are spending the afternoon in Burlington. They have a very dynamic tap list and lots if creative new beers to try out on every visit. Only complaint is that you pretty much have to stay here for lunch to hang out and order a flight to try out the beers. There is a bar area but it is always too sunny and crowded to hang out in.

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.
