Great flat breads with plenty of toppings, nice and fresh. Zero Gravity Conehead Wheat IPA was very good. I will definitely drink again it was very drinkable. The restaurant has a great feel to it. Good atmosphere and wait staff. We have been there often and always have a good time.

Ate lunch here and had a few beers. We sat in the outdoor seating since it was nice, although the ground wasn't very level and I was worried my beers were going to slide off the table.
Good selection of beer styles available, I had a glass of the Black IPA and the Export Stout. Both very tasty. The food menu is made up of flatbread pizzas which feature a lot of local ingredients. We had ours half red onion and buffalo chicken and half Sun dried tomato and sausage, and it was excellent.
The only downside was that the service was below average. Our waitress disapeared for long stretches when we actually needed refills, and both the plates and my wife's coffee cup had not been washed well at all.

Went there on a Thursday night. Waited 25 minutes for my table. Was able to order a beer at the bar in the meantime, so the waiting was really no big deal.
The place is amazing. Old brick walls, wooden furniture, homey feeling, and this huge wood fire oven in the corner, with the pizzas cooking inside. From my table, we could literally feel the oven's heat. Made for a great atmosphere.
The service was ridiculously excellent. Our waitress was johnny-on-the-spot with everything we needed. She was never invasive, but always there within a few seconds after we expressed our need for something between ourselves. We never had to wave for her, she just seemed to pop out of thin air before we even had a chance to express anything explicitly. It was almost disconcerting and it ended up with a running joke that she must have been a psychic.
The food was amazing. Great selection of pizzas. The three of us shared slices among ourselves for the sake of variety and the three we had were very different but consistently excellent. The only thing they'd need to work on would be a wider variety of entrées - most of what they have now is salads.
The beer was brewed by Zero Gravity - which is only the name for the home brewery. I had two and they were excellent. I expect the others to be just as well made.
Overall, great value. I've had pizzas that were far from being as tasty while being in the same range, or even more expensive. Considering the food + the beer + the atmosphere, this place is well worth the price they charge. Very, very nice experience. Next time I hit Burlington, it's the first place I'm heading for.

Stopped by for lunch on a day trip out of Burlington. The atmosphere was casual, but in a fun and exciting way. The service was very good, our waitress was attentive and helpful in both beer and food selection. The beer selection was solid, offering many beers brewed on site with a large variety. The flatbreads were delicious and full of flavor. They complemented the beer nicely! Overall lunch was delicious and relaxed, quite enjoyable.

It's been a year since I've been here, but I wrote this review shortly after coming here.
Wood-fire pizza, aka flatbread... wow! Some of the best I've had. Not only that, but Zero-gravity brewing which is attached to the restaurant had an excellent selection of beers. They had a biere de garde, a style I'd never tried before that, and it was undoubtedly one of the best beers I've ever had (I've probably tried close to 500 different beers). The atmosphere was almost a little bit medieval, what with all the bricks and wood oven, tall ceilings and big open room, and it was nice to see all the food being made fresh out in the open. We were seated at the table closest the oven, and it was hot, but we could stand it. The servers were helpful and we didn't have to wait long, even though the place was full. Burlington is a fascinating city to me, and this place cemented it as a real gem. One of the best meals/beers I've had all year.

I had a perfect lunch here with my friends. This was part of our VT brewery tour and is one of our favorite memories. We waited about 10 min to get a table outside. Perfect 75 degrees with a table in the shade. We ordered two flatbreads to share. One being the special for the day. We LOVED them and ate every last bit. The beer was also delicious. I guess my one complaint would be that they do not offer a sampler. I had the Burl N'Wol since I usually love all sour beers, unfortunately this one just wasn't my cup of tea. Something just wasn't matching with my tastebuds. I stole some of my friends Citizen cider which was awesome. My other friend ordered the Afternooner and could not smiling about the perfection of the moment. We had a great time and the servers were very friendly and hepful.

When I made it to Burlington it was really rainy and I was getting tired fast so I decided to head down to American Flatbread, have a few beers, and get some flatbread to go. I had a devil of a time trying to find this place in the rain but I finally found it and scored a seat at the bar. Very nice space with tons of people milling around waiting for their tables to be ready. I got served quickly and my servers were nice and kept my glass full. Quality was very high all around. My beers were good and my flatbread was great and made with high quality ingredients.
The selection was pretty good. Tons of different beers plus their IPA on cask with some extra hops added. Most tasted pretty good, I liked the stout best. I got a half and half flatbread to go, half New Vermont Sausage and half Dancing Heart. I loved the Sausage half, I could not stop eating it, the other half was good but I wish I would have went with one of the other toppings, like the pepperoni and peppers, as they smelled amazing. Overall a really nice place to stop and have some beers and a pie. I will definitely return next time I am in Burlington.

A really interesting place. Stopped by for some late night food after the VBF. One of the best pizzas I have ever had. As is typical for Burlington attention was paid to the ingredients to ensure the best quality.
The beer list was very extensive, almost too extensive. There was very little in terms of interesting beer styles form my point of view, which was odd given the vast number of offerings. I had a saison that was definitely above average.
Service was friendly and prompt on a fairly busy Friday night. Would return for the pizza alone.

The last stop in a mini beer tour of Burlington.... Zero Gravity/American Flatbread is the quintessential Vermont joint. Lots of wood and brick, a nice cozy interior (I bet it is great in the winter while the snow falls outside), an exposed brick oven and lists of local purveyors and farms around the wall. They take the local thing serious in this state!
We sat at the bar, which was surprisingly busy at this time at night (almost 11:30pm, kinda late for Vermont). 13 house beers plus a cask listed on the chalkboard, with a bit of everything and lots of creativity.
I loved the Gruit and Ale Communication DIPA but did not enjoy the Belgian-style dubbel. The Peated IPA would have been nice but it had just kicked. Also a saison, pilsner, Helles bock, Gruit on cask... they are not your average brewpub!
They don't offer beer flights or sizable samples but they do give small free samples. Prices are reasonable at $5.00 per glass and $3.00 per half-glass, and service is friendly and efficient.
We chatted with a local couple and also with the bartender, who happened to work at Prohibition Pig in Waterbury too. I can't wait to visit again and try the famous flatbreads! Oh- don't miss the beautiful artistic tap handles...

this is one of my favorite places to eat and drink anywhere. cool inside and bar area with huge wood fired over right in the middle and an farmhouse sort of decor around the bar. outside seating between two brick buildings with lots of plants, beautiful in the summer. the beers are all great, different every time i go in, creative and well crafted. they do some cool stuff with the casks too. food is unreal. some of the best pizza ever, i love the new vermont maple fennel sausage pizza. its to die for. all the food is outstanding. service is okay, its always really busy so they do the best they can, but you might be waiting a bit for your items, especially at peak times. its priced fairly for what it is, but its out of my everyday budget. i try and go a few times each summer, this place really is incredible if you are a foodie/beer person. i love the emphasis on local and sustainable ingredients. a must visit.
