stopped by this place and enjoyed it quite a bit. the vibe is very relaxed with a strong focus on vermont. the menus are newspapers with cool write ups ranging from ethan allen to beer history, quotes, and facts. the food was very reasonably priced, and typical pub food with a stronger empahsis than usual (i thought) on vegetarian type meals. my buddy and i both got stouts which were okay, nothing special but at the same time enjoyable. they had some really intersting beer selections i would have liked to try if i had been there longer. nonetheless it was nice stop.

I used to go to this place all of the time when I lived in burlington.

Its a BOP, they only sell their own beer and most of the time its pretty good. However I did have their idea of a flanders red and it was undrinnkable.
The food here is very good and very cheap, I think you can still get a burger for under $6, and they serve pretty late
They usualy have a really raspberry that is worth trying, their house pale ale is good too

Its usually a mixed crowd of college kids and older people, like all of burlington its non smoking which is nice.

The service for the most part is good, everyonce in awhile you get an obnoxious waitress who thinks she knows everything about beer...just because she reads exactly how the menu describes the beer

worth checking out, both the food and the beer is very reasonable

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!

Went here because Flatbread was closed until five and we were only going to be in Burlington for another hour or so. Food was so-so. We shouldn't have ordered onion rings and fish and chips because it was too much fried. Even so, the taste was kind of bland.

Had the Pale Ale. Tasted ok at first, but the hops profile didn't seem as fresh as I would have expected. Then, we got a flight of six samples which included: Forbidden Fruit, Blue Lotus, Burly, Dogbite, Mick's Stout, and Spuyten Duyvil. They all had a thin, watery quality to them, as if they were a fun house mirror image of the style. Not really, BAD persay, just off. I was looking forward to the Blue Lotus because I've been meaning to try more Gruits, and the Spuyten Duyvil seemed interesting. The flowery notes on the Lotus were there, but again, too watered down. The Forbidden Fruit was too simple. Very strong rasberry flavor but little else. The Stout's smokey flavor was interesting, but that's about it. The Burly and the Dogbite I don't really remember which doesn't speak well. Lastly, the Duyvil. It had an interesting tartness and some body to it which made it the only one I really liked.

All in all, it was ok, but I would have preferred Flatbread.

Went here because American Flatbread was wrapped up and there was no getting in. Came in and they were pretty busy, but we got a table on the patio easily because everyone feared rain.

They had 8 beers on tap and a couple on cask. I tried their Beetlejuice Weizen, and Spuyten Duyvil Red Ale and my girlfriend and Ihad the Forbidden Fruit. All the beers were good, but I feel they had a really thin feel to them.

Our service was great. We had an awesome guy who was real attentive but never pushy. He was totally ok with us just having a few beers and not eating. You would have thought this to be a cardinal sin by the way the host looked at me when I asked for a table.

All in all, a good experience but I was blown away by the beer.

I came with three others around 3ish on Sunday. There was about a 20 minute wait. I will say though, while we waited outside I counted about 80 seats so if it hadn't been raining and the outside closed down, they should have had adequate seating. We were seated on an enclosed porch, so it wasn't loud or busy there. There was a full menu of food to choose from, all reasonably priced. I ordered a Rueben which turned out to be on just regular toast, a fair size. I didn't leave hungry and it wasn't expensive, you just might not want to come just for the food- there are better restaurants and for cheaper in Burlington (e.g. a rib house a block away). My sister got a lasagne or something and she liked it, so the food is OK. I ordered and smoked stout (handsome Mick's). It was too smoky for my personal taste but it was very good beer. My friend got another stout. Both were above average and for $4, I thought were wothwhile. It's a nice place, but a bit too "commercial" for me and not as nice as American Flatbread- which is like 3 buildings away. Worth visiting certainly, but not my favorite in Burlington.

Sat inside in the slightly cramped quarters of the dining room....not a bad thing; kind of Euro-close. The dining area was a bit dark , but nothing negative....probably would have liked the patio better , but they allow smoking out there, which sucks. Flatbread doesn't, so we were spoiled.
The waitress was very cool and knew her beers, but that's about all I have to say that's positive about our visit.
The food was ...eh. I had tasteless Mahi-Mahi.
The beers were kind of disappointing across the board...and we actually got charged for the two samples we requested. That sucked.
There was a bizarre rhubarb beer on cask...I hate that plant !
The smoked stout, which I had such high hopes for, was pretty thin and had no smoke flavor that I could detect.
We finished quickly and headed to Flatbread !
We'll give them another try in the future...but we were not impressed by this visit.

Second stop on our Burlington brewpub tour last weekend, and it was time for dinner too. There looked to be a huge wait for tables since it was beerfest weekend, so we ordered some beers from the bar. Quick service despite the crowd. Went with the Forbidden Fruit, which was awesome. Two sips into the beer, we got a table. Our waitress was great, she brought us our food, beers, and check very promptly. The beer selection was very good, they have quite a variety of all styles of beer. I like brewpubs that just don't make the generic types you find everywhere else, make something different instead. During dinner, I had the Helles Alt, which was nice too. But the thing that got me about this place was the price: cheap! We had one app, two sandwiches, and two beers, for $33. Not bad. For the great service, and the excellent beers, and the cheap but good food, you can't go wrong with this place. We were glad we stopped here for dinner.

Had not been in years. Was happy to revisit and have dinner with a few local freinds.

Nice decor with lots of wood and such. Dark old looking bar with a very comfy dining area.

Service was attentive and polite. I dont recall being out of a beer for long and our food arrived in due time despite it being during the dinner rush.

Eight beers on draft and 2 casks....nice. I always have a soft spot in my heart for any place that has cask.

Our dinners were all very nice. I had the Fish n' Chips n' Oysters....for $9.99! It was done very nicely and was most tasty.

A place I had fond memories of....drinking smoked porter with friends while a snow storm and -10F temps ruled the outdoors....nice to see the place hadn't changed! A solid, must visit location when in Burlington.

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.

Everyone who enjoys great beer in Vermont owes a little something to the people at Vermont Pub and Brewery. They lobbied the Vermont legislature for three years to make pub brewing legal for the first time since prohibition. This is the oldest brewpub in Vermont and the 3rd oldest on the east coast.

There are nine house beers on tap including one cask & a VT hard cider which they use for blends. Pints-$4, 12oz-$3, 8oz-$2. They don't offer outside beers on tap or in bottle but do have a full bar including an impressive list of single malts. The beers are less carbonated and served slightly warmer than most pubs. This is the only one of the three downtown pubs that sell growlers, allowing you to take some brews home.

The bar has two parts, inside the darker dining room area and a sun room. When the weather is nice you can also enjoy a pint on the large deck under an umbrella, a Burlington must. There is a large appetizer/sandwich/pub menu available all day which is reasonably priced. The chili and Vt cheese sampler are fantastic with a pint.

The bar is filled with regulars which is always a good sign. Service is laid back and friendly, the bartenders are very beer knowledgable, the wait staff not so much. I definitely recommend stopping in for a pint.

Had a quick beer at the bar here on my trip to Burlington. Lots of people outside on the patio drinking, there also seemed to be a wait to get in to eat. We snuck on the bar area and sat facing the outside window and had a beer. I had the smoked porter and thought it was great. The inside was dark and mellow with a good crowd. I would go back to try a bite to eat sometime. It think it is really cool that when you go to Vermont every place that you walk into brews their own beer. This state really must have a passion for brewing.

Alewife and I spent a good chunk of time here last Saturday (19APR08), on what was a simply fantastic Spring day. Temps were hitting the upper 70s, and there was nary a cloud in the sky.

I found a parking spot down the street easily, and we walked up to the Pub, at the corner of College and St Paul (I believe). The Pub is in a big brick building, with an outdoor patio. There's a large sign on the side of the building with the company logo, and another sign at ground level showing the "state bird", the "geezum crow", with a chalkboard listing the daily specials. Up a set of steps and under a wrought-iron archway with the pub name, and you're on the patio. There are about 15-20 tables set up there, overlooking the street. Each seats at least 4, and has an umbrella to shade you. Adjacent to the patio is the pub itself. A glassed-in sunroom houses one part of the bar. Enter to the bar itself. It is in 2 parts, one being under the glass canopy, and another half parallel to it in the inner part of the building. The place is generally on the dark side, with lots of dark wood making up the walls, bar and furniture, and some brass fixtures here and there. The place is decorated with beer bottles, old bier pics and other various bits of bier paraphernalia... Place has the feel of a roaring 20s saloon. The brewing equipment was visible near the entrance, a small foyer with a fridge housing some growlers to go. On tap we found 10 of their own brews, plus some assorted bottles of this and that from near and far. Their IPA, Dunkelweizen and Wee Heavy were all quite tasty. The service was quite good, both at the inside bar, where we had a round while waiting for a patio table, and later outside. A burger for the Lady and a bowl of chili for me really hit the spot. Tasty stuff, and fairly priced, too. Being such a kick-ass day, we lingered outside for quite some time, with a few Wee Heavys under our belts. Oh yeah!!

Prosit!!

Stumbled in here because we were hungry and didn't know where to go. Pleasantly surprised! Caught it at an off-peak time and were seated in somewhat tight confines that must feel a lot tighter when there are a flood of folks. Foodwise they were great: I got the toad-in-the-hole, which came out piping hot in a very soft and tasty pastry crust.

Got a flight of six beers. I thought their Forbidden Fruit, an oak-aged framboise, was eh, but that disappointment was more than made up by their Wee Heavy and their smoked stout. Their ESB and IPA were A-OK!

Can't wait to head back to Burlington to visit this brewpub again.

I made the unfortunate choice of visiting this place on a Friday night. If you don't want to have to part the red sea to get to the bar or wait a good hour for a table then this place may not be a good choice on a weekend night.

When you walk in you can go to the right to a front bar or walk an extra ten feet and there is a bar directly behind it. There is seating all around with tables and some booths.

I ordered a sample so I could gauge all the beers. I was not all that impressed. There were a few decent beers but most were missing any kind of mouth feel. They just seemed to be lacking and distinct flavor.

The food was nothing more than normal pub grub and it didn't seem to do that well either.

This is not a place I will be going back to when I am in Burlington but if you have some extra time its worth trying at least once. Just remember not to go during a busy weekend day.

My wife and I got approximately 12 hours to spend in Vermont. We'd never been there, knew next to nothing about the place, and were just passing through. We happened upon the Vermont Pub & Brewery, and just kind of said "Let's do it".

We waited about 20 minutes as it was very busy on this Monday night. The hostess led us to a smallish table and plopped a couple of menus down in front of us and was very pleasant. We opened up the menus and were amazed at the options that lay before us and especially how much they cost. We're used to Minneapolis prices, that is to say, you can assume $12-15 a plate, and at least $4 for a beer. Almost everything on this menu was under $10, and the beers were like $2.50 a pint or something ridiculous like that!

I won't give an official review of the beers I had, since it would be from memory, but I can tell you they were both excellent. I had a Burly Irish Ale and their IPA as well. I give the selection an "average" only because they only offered their own beers and a guest cask, but their beers are good enough to run with any regional or national brew.

For food, I ordered a shepherd's pie and gravy fries, my wife ordered the honey-teriyaki chicken breast with a salad. I have not had better food in a higher-priced establishment. The greens in my wife's salad looked as though they'd walked out back, picked them from a garden, and prepared them fresh. Her chicken breast was very well-marinated and glazed in a wonderful-tasting teriyaki sauce and had a perfect smoky grilled taste. And my sheperd's pie was to die for. Piping hot and very meaty, I could taste fresh herbs and a winey tang in the gravy. And oh, the gravy fries. If nothing else, I'd go here for a pint and an order of gravy fries. Lightly crisp and battered, a French onion gravy with little slivers of fresh sliced onion spread over the top... perfectly sweet and salty. Goodness. It's almost worth another 1500 mile drive!

The service was average, but only because it appeared as though they were understaffed and rushed. It was unusually busy for a Monday night, and working in the service industry myself, I can understand the conundrum. The wait staff was very nice, and there was lots of good energy coursing through the place.

Amazing food, great beer, and genuinely nice people. If this is how Vermont rolls, I'm of half a mind to move there myself!

Stopped here on the way back from Montreal last Thursday, 8/30/07. Have been there before, but I have not reviewed until now.

Nice pub atmosphere, although a little bit dark in the dining area. Running last Thursday were:

Forbidden Fruit -- Raspberry (GIBF 2006 Silver, Fruit Beer)
Ethan Alien Vermont Lager
Curacao Wit--orange a corriander
Grandslam Baseball Beer--dry hopped with Fuggles
Burly Irish Ale - (2006 GIBF Gold, Red Ale)
Dogbite Bitter
Bombay Grab IPA--Cascade, Chinook & Magnum hops, 90 IBUs
Mick's Smoked Stout --apple, maple & hickory smoked malt

Cask: Mick's Smoked Stout

I had a few, Ethan Alien, Baseball, Irish Ale and the Dogbite. The Dogbite was my fave of the bunch (see separate review). Prices were reasonable & they poured half pints, 12 oz. and pints on most offerings.

I also had an OK chix sandwich.

Will be back again.

Stopped in Friday night prior to the Vermont Beer Festival. The place was packed but managed to get a seat at the bar. Tried a flight of the beers in addition to the Dubyil. The beers were goodbut the place was too packed to actually enjoy them because we kepy getting bumped into. Because of the packedness of the place, the service was spotty at best. You couldn't really ask questions because they were too busy and just gave short answers.

I will have to give this another try when it is less busy.

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

Every year I go to the Vermont Brewers fest I make it a point to have dinner at the Vermont Pub & Brewery. The pub is conveniently located in the heart of downtown. It has a large bar and plenty of seating, inside and out, plus a very friendly and casual atmosphere.

The food menu is extensive and very reasonable. It's mainly your typical pub fare, burgers, fish & chips, pasta, with a few specials thrown in for good measure. Everything I've ever ordered here has been terrific. Beer wise, they offer all the standard styles; IPA, stout, pale ale, amber, etc. Again, the prices are good and the beers are quite tasty.

As far as the staff goes they are terrific. Very friendly and easy to talk to. When I arrived after the fest the first thing the waitress did was to bring a pitcher of ice water which was much appreciated.

When in Burlington a visit to the Vermont Pub & Brewery should be on everybody's list.

On a recent trip to Vermont, friends and I stopped in Burlington for lunch at the Vermont Pub & Brewery (VPB). It is a popular place for locals, tourists, beer aficionados and families – i.e., plenty of screaming children (no criticism, just an observation).

VPB has a strategically downtown corner location; across the street is a large park, where a carnival or something was in progress; a few convenient steps down the front steps, and down the street, leads you to American Flatbread, which was our next stop (see review).

It was certainly busy the day we visited; in any case, VPB consists of an outdoor terrace overlooking the street, several dining areas amid a dark interior with brick-wood décor, a dimly lit indoor bar and another “greenhouse” bar that is right off the terrace – and offers a nice view of the aforementioned park – and was endowed with plenty of natural light. We parked ourselves here.

VPB’s menu, available on newspaper print, is a rather eclectic one that runs the gamut from burgers, fish & chips, bangers & mash to ploughman’s lunch, the latter being my choice. (Americans just don’t know how to serve a decent ploughman’s lunch.)

According to this menu, VPB is the third oldest brewpub in Vermont. In any case, the beer selection (9 taps) was diverse, covering the major styles – I enjoyed their Dogbite Bitter and Bombay Grab IPA. If you wish to take beer home, growlers are also available. And despite the fact of their being short-staffed during our stay, the service was efficient and the staff was knowledgeable.

All in all, the Vermont Pub & Brewery makes for an enjoyable repast for anyone traveling through the Green Mountain state in search of beer.

Rolled into the VPB on a bright sunny Sunday afternoon for a few pints with a bunch of beer loving friends. As you walk up the step a massive outdoor patio section lies in front of you with about 15-20 tables shaded by umbrellas and some trees. Enter into the brewpub and either sit in the greenhouse, where we ended up, or inside at the bar. The inside section is dimly lit with wood walls and knick-knacks here and there. The greenhouse sat about 12 people at the bar, glassware hanging down from the ceiling and in a rack behind the bar.

The bartender, Hannah, was very talkative and attentive; although we did keep her busy the entire time. Ask her to tell you some jokes. On tap included a nice list of 10 brews, 8 of which were their own house brews. Included were a Red ale, IPA, Flemish sour, smoked porter, pils, rye lager, esb, and a weisse beer.

I sampled a few of the mentioned brews and all tasted quite good and fresh. The smoked stout was nice and creamy with a hint of smokeyness and roasted malt. I had never experienced a rye lager before and this one didn’t disappoint. Big rye body with a nice crisp lager finish. $3.50 for a pint is unbeatable, but so is $9 for a growler.

Unfortunately we didn’t try any of the food, but the bartender did say there were some delicious offerings on the menu. Also from looking at th menu I got the impression that you get what you pay for as many of the offerings were priced on the cheap side. A good place with a good vibe that was pretty packed on a Sunday early afternoon. I can see this brewpub being quite packed throughout the week. Another must hit if your in Burlington.

I've been meaning to review this place for a long time. The beers are always decent. The selection is kind of limited though at times and sometimes, they may not have certain beers available in growlers. Other than that, the service is decent and the bartender recognizes me by face sometimes so that does make it easier. The food is good as I've had the angus burger before. The pricing is reasonable and I would say that it's safe to say that you won't spend more than $25 for a meal and at least 2 pints, depending on your tastes. A decent place to go to that could use some work on the selection over time.

I have been to the Vermont Pub and Brewery at least 5 times now, most recently a month ago while visiting friends at UVM. Both the beer and the food fit within a college budget and are above average. I personally recommend the Irish Ale and the Smoked Porter, both of which are always on tap. Lines can be in excess of an hour long, but they offer a nice bar/waiting room to start moistening your pallet before you are seated. Service was average, with nothing sticking out as poor or excellent, a few of the bartenders could afford to learn a bit more about the individual beers. Of all the brewpubs I have been to in Vermont, this is second only to the Alchemist. Certainly worth a visit if you are in the area.

this was my girlfriend and my first stop on our short burlington daytrip excursion. i was really impressed with the atmosphere. it gave off that euro beer cafe vibe, and the staff was really friendly. the beer selection is decent, the cask stout was awesome and the music was perfectly complementing. as i finished my sampler a bob dylan tune came on and flooded me with the common man vibe that is burlington. there's just something about good beer in a good town with good friends. the prices were more than reasonable. this is a must see, even just for it's proximity to american flatbread (easily the best brewpub in town).
