This past weekend was my second visit to VPB. The first was quite a few years ago, and I honestly don't remember much from it unfortunately.

I was in town for the Vermont Brewers Festival, so I obviously had to stop off again and have lunch and sample the brews.

They have a really nice menu and just had to ask for a side of the brown onion gravy to go along with the fries ( and if you've ever read any of my other reviews, you'll know I most likely ordered a burger, and you'd be right).

The beer .... did the flight tasting on 6 beers of my choice. They were all good and nothing stood out as being out of the genre for the style in which they described as.

This place can get quite busy by the locals

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.

Cheers

The east coast brew pub that launched it all (IMO).
VPB has really good local beer crafted on site (of course), it has good pub food like shephreds pie, meatloaf, etc.. and a really nice atmosphere. In the summer sit outside on the deck.
Service is ok, nothing notable.
As a brewpub it ranks among the best.
