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

Has an odd entry. Once inside, it was great. Nice bar crowd watching football. Service was attentive. Food was very good and the menu has a lot of enticing options. Beer selection is really nice. Lots of different styles. A couple casks. The original black IPA. The beers I had were true to style.

This establishment has quite a happening vibe to it. Every time I've been there, its been teeming with people. Still, the staff keeps the place pretty well kept. Some of the bartenders can be knowledgeable about the beers, but some of the bartenders don't always pay attention to the board and can't keep it updated with what they actually have on tap. Though almost always busy, they do keep up with the people. I've rarely had any problems with getting my beers and food in a good amount of time. Also, its a bit of an old school sort of vibe so don't expect explosive hop bombs, new dry saisons and fully robust American stouts. Think English styled beers.

if your going to Burlington there are a ton of better places to go. Food is average, beer is average, and the vibe is average. It looks like an old Irish Bar attempting to be a brew pub. The only positive I can say is the staff was nice and friendly when I went with a group of four. We each had a few 3oz beers and weren't impressed with any.

This is where you go when you have nowhere else to go. There are ten other places I would pick over VPB in the same neighborhood.
