This brewpub is small and well-lit. Fairly small bar on the right with some tables on the left. Pool table in the back. No food offered. Atmosphere more like a run-of-the-mill bar rather than a brewpub. No printed menus of the beers, though they are listed on a board. Five of their beers with seven guest beers. Their offerings were standard offerings, nothing unusual. No sampler was included, though the enthusiastic, friendly bartender let us have some small samples when we could get her attention (though it wasn't too crowded.) One unisex bathroom means you're waiting awhile if you have to go. The beers sampled were okay/decent, the stout being the best, IMO.
Worth checking out, but don't expect to be amazed.

They have moved to a new location and they are not currently brewing their own beer, which was a surprise to me. They don't expect to be brewing again for another year or so.
For what it is, a beer bar, this place is not worth visiting. The selection is pretty basic and boring. The most interesting beer I could find to drink was Allagash White. Nothing against that beer (it is great) but you can find that at basically every bar in VT.
The place is dark and very unfriendly feeling. Service was good enough but I had my quick pint and left. Prices weren't all that reasonable for what this place is.
