I have always liked this place, one of the more funky little spots ive been to. a weird looking place from the outside, and dim lit gift shop on the inside, where a self guided tour starts whenever you want. it sort of begins in a funky hallway with all sorts of mardi gras stuff, just trippy from the outset. a cool video history of craft beer is played, and the path warps around the brewery from above. takes as few as a couple minutes to walk through, but the facility is impressive, and its obvious that creativity is paramount here. its got a great feel, and when you walk out of the brewery, there is a tasting bar where some hotties will run you through their tap offerings. you cant buy a pint, which has always been my real critique, but they fill growlers up cheap and have some cool blends only available there, like blind9, which is blind faith ipa and number 9 blended together. friendly place with a lot of cool merch. I always stop when I take the Essex/charlotte ferry over and drive into Burlington. definitely worth visiting, its not like other places you have been...

I went to school in Burlington so Magic Hat is incredibly popular wherever you go. The brewery is one of the larger ones I've been to. It's a trippy, cozy atmosphere with one of the longest tap room bars I've been to. They have a ton of merchandise for sale. You are allowed to taste up to four beers for free and there are a lot to choose from. However, I went on a busy day and the brewtender didn't seem to care if I had 1 tasting or 6. Definitely worth the visit if you find yourself in Vermont.
