This place was a chore to find, but well worth the effort. It is set up in a country/rustic type building. Once inside your faced with the bar which is shaped like a horseshoe. The place is done up with wood all inside with a few dining tables and a small takeout/giftshop area.

The atmosphere is typical of a country restaurant. It's nice and quiet and offers a friendly feel. The food is good, but nothing much more than typical bar food and sandwiches. The locals seemed to enjoy it. The place was full of people from all walks of life. The service was good. The bartender took the orders and was very friendly and courteous. I got the feeling his family owned the place.

The selection of beers was simple. There were about six available. I tried the sampler. The beers we of a good quality, but nothing exceptional. Their blackberry wheat and IPA were my fav. .

Overall, this was a nice stop on my Vermont brewery trip. If you plan on coming to check this place out, ask them how to get to Harpoon. It's just over the hill via an old dirt road.

This place gets better every year. The food is really pretty good and the staff is so friendly that you feel like don't want to leave. The beer may not rate as well as some of the new northern VT breweries, but these brewmasters are always offering some real treats that are only availabe at the brewery, sometimes not even available for growler fills. Overall a really great experience. Beware of the food portions. they're HUGE!

If you are driving anywhere near by and you don't stop by you are doing yourself a serious dis-service. Good food, the beer is awesome, staff is friendly and will help you plan the rest of your trip to various VT breweries. Outdoor patio area with adirondack chairs overlook the river that flows directly behind the brewery make for the perfect beer sipping experience.

Went here with my wife after a bad trip riding up through Vermont (long story!). Was glad to finally stop at a place for drinks and food. The brewery space had quite a large dining area with outdoor seating and a bar area centrally located. The space had a cabin-like feel with its wood interior. Stairs lead up to the brewery itself which you can see the action happen. There did not seem to be structured tours, but you still get to peek into their operations.

The place was quite busy, which gave the dining area a festive and social atmosphere. Judging from the location of the brewery, the place probably gets a lot of tourists year-round and a lot of skiers during the skiing months. The wait staff was very friendly and relaxed, much like the atmosphere of the place.

Food menu was decent with general pub items. I had the steak and cheese sub and two beers from the tap. The beer was great, but my sandwich was ok. We ate inside, but near the windows where you can see a nice view of a river. Very idyllic view of Vermont nature from the brewery location.

With a good location and good interior atmosphere, this facility was a great place to visit, relax, and have some beer.

The location is nice, great deck that you can enjoy. It sits right over a river with nice scenery. The service is a little slow and they don't seem to be able to handle the après ski crowd to well. Their beer is fine, I think Limbo is great, other options are drinkable but nothing else is particularly memorable. The food is pub style stuff and is middle of the line at best. Sitting on the deck for a beer or two is fun after spring skiing, but I would not make a special trip.
