I won't waste your time or mine telling you what the place is like inside, although the fireplace was nice on a night like tonight. Basically, this place combines a kickass brewpub with great pizza...end of story.

They had quite a few of their own beers on tap, I had the Old Ale, the IPA and Alt and all were fantastic. Along with their own beers they had some Allagash, some Rogue, Stone Double Bastard and 4 or 5 others. The bottle list is quite impressive as well.

Great locale right in downtown Burlingtown, always busy, great bar, great restaurant, great beer and great pizzas. Worth a stop for sure and its right across from Vermont Pub & Brewery no less.

I had the opportunity to spend several days in Burlington and found this and the Alchemist to be the best beer hangouts in the state.

The thing that stood out to me, more so than any other place, was the service. It was the best service I have ever experienced at any bar or store. This was one of the reasons I came back here multiple times during my stay. Every beer was not only served in the proper glass, but several of the beers were served in the proper glasses bearing the breweries name. Furthermore, every time the bar tender pulled out the glass, he held it up to the light to make sure it was clean. The bartender, who I believe was either a manager or owner, also seemed to have a very advanced knowledge of beer. He was more than willing to give advice or recommendations when asked, even when the bar seemed to get crowded. I truly felt at home at this bar. (as a side note, sit at the bar if you want to get great beer service, sitting at a table may lead to a completely different experience).

If the beer aspect was given primary consideration, I would rate the atmosphere a 5. However, the primary focus is the sit down area of the restaurant. While the place is very warm, cozy, and homey (with wood burning fire places and great decor) it is slightly ruined by the droves of people coming to eat food. This led to many children and families taking up bar space when they weren't even drinking. At one point there was six children sitting at the bar, when there was only around 12-15 seats available.

The selection is pretty decent in size, with some of their own brews available. The bottles list was pretty extensive as well. The only thing I wished for was more vintage or rarer beers to be available. They did have 2004 Rochefort 6 (freakin' amazing) and Allagash Interlude, but other than that most of the beers I could find anywhere.

As stated before, food is the primary focus here. That being said, their food is amazing, especially the pizza. Made by hand in a open fire, these pizzas are simply amazing. Definitely a must try!

Overall, this place has awesome food and service that is second to none. Even though beer might not be the primary focus, they take seriously the proper presentation of the beers and have great knowledge of beer. The only recommendation I can make is to somehow only reserve the bar area for those who are actually going to drink beer at the bar. Too many families and children dampen the experience.

Burlington's answer to the Publick House, right down to the lightbulbs. Except they also brew their own, quite good beer. In addition, their beer menu was by the most impressive I've seen in any city nearly so small. I think it was a bit pricey, but not so much that I can remember for sure. This place is definitely set up as a restaurant first and a bar second, though I question the logic (just like the Publick House), and while I didn't try the food it smelled great. I'd loved to have spent the night here, had we been able to get a seat, and had I more than one night to explore Burlington's many fine beer bars. Still, this is the one bar I kept thinking of returning to later in the evening.

I have been here in the past but went for the first time in a few years on "Black Friday" and it was PACKED! A few too many children in the bar area for my taste but the bartenders did a wonderful job of keeping up with the massive crowd. I started off with a Zero Gravity Munich Helles then tried the Bock Obama and finished up with an Otter Creek Otter's Dubbel. I've had the food in the past and remember it as being quite good but it was a while ago. I was pretty impressed with the Zero Gravity beers and they had a decent selection of guest beers. Will try to make it a regular stop on my Burlington visits.

This is a nice pizzeria located in what seems like an old warehouse. We sat on the small patio which was nice considering the weather. Service is good and staffs were aware of the beers availability. I didn't stay for too long considering this was a family visit with the kids but the food was really good and the beers were also very interesting and veering toward Belgian style. Definitely a place I would recommend for anyone visiting Burlington even more so thta the location is central and parking is not too hard too find.

Went here on Friday for lunch. I had heard a lot about these flatbreads and even more about the brew. The place is in a nice little building, with a very inviting bar and a patio area in the alley. That said, inside can get a bit cramped at times especially at night. The previous evening we tried to get a few drinks there and the line was out the door.

Service was ok. They were a bit busy due to a street festival and our server was going a bit crazy with very little help. Still, whenever we asked for anything, she was right on it.

The beer was great. I didn't review any of the house brews but those that I tried were great but came after I hit a few heavy beers that took care of my palate. I had Smuttynose Farmhouse and Oaked Arrogant Bastard on tap. We also had a bottle of Ephemere and Three Philos. Their beer list was very impressive with beers from all over the country represented well. Very, very pleased when I saw the beer list.

The food doesn't take second seat to this beer selection. The pizzas are all fresh with fresh, home grown, organic, homemade ingredients. We had three pizzas between the 5 of us and they were all amazing. This is a quality restaurant and bar in all categories. This will absolutely be a stop on my agenda everytime I am in Burlington visiting family.

The wait was "10 min.s" when I went with my sister and brother-in-law at lunch time. The wait really was 10 min.s and although there was no room really to wait, the time went by quickly and we didn't feel in the way. The waitress seated us at a nice table by the window, sort of out of the way and not too noisy. The table was a beautiful lemon shape and the seats were comfortable at the booth to me. I promply got the pint of extra stout I ordered. It was $4. It had a very pleasing, not too strong taste, no smokyness that I tasted and was as smooth as rootbeer. There was no bitter taste. To me, it was perfect. When I was done with the pint, I was satisfied but could have another. The food is pizza but done with a peculiar flatbread, crispy, thin crust in a brick oven in the restaurant. I got the large and only ate half. So for $18 I got two meals worth of food, which was unusual and good (note, no sauce on the one I ordered). Too me, the atmosphere was very pleasant, busy but not too busy or noisy or uncomfortable. I certainly plan to go back the next time I'm visiting.

My girlfriend and I were staying in Burlington and were so impressed with our visit to Flatbread that we came back three nights in a row...twice for dinner and the third time just for drinks.
We spent most of our time in the very cool brick courtyard where , even though it is outdoors, doesn't allow smoking....we liked that a lot.
The pizzas were awesome...made with locally produced ingredients, like suasages, bacon , and veggies. The wait staff and bartenders were freindly and knowledgable and were generous and patient with samples. We liked that too.
The beers, from the Helles lager to the IPAs and Belgians were fantastic ! We both thought that the Belgian Dubbel was unbelievable. I loved the Saison. And for guest taps...BBC Lost Sailor on cask ! Ommegang Rouse Sour.... Not bad.
We both agreed that this is THE place for great food and beer in VT.

Update 8/09
Spent a week in Burlington and hit Flatbread 4 nights...should have gone more often....I blame that on the Alchemist. Once again, or , four more times again and again, we are SO impressed with the food,beer, atmosphere and staff.

This was the last stop on our Burlington brewpub tour last weekend. We stopped in here for a drink after dinner at VT Pub & Brewery, which is practically right across the street. Walked in, and you gotta love that smell of freshly baking pizza. It's fun to watch the guy in the back operate the hearth. The bar has a very modern and cool look to it. Not a whole lot of standing room though. Service was good. They had about 10 house beers on tap, with 7 or so guest taps also. I tried the Belgian Pail Ale (ok) and my wife had the Belgian Dubbel (very good). It started to get a bit crowded as it was a Saturday night and the evening beer fest session was just getting out, so we decided to stay just for one. After staring at the pizza for a while as we savored those tasty beers, we decided that this was one place that we should have dinner at sometime in the future.

Visited with a couple of local friends. Hit the place up for the start of the 5 day long cask festival around Mondial time.

Cool place with a nice bar and a wide open seating area. Lots of wooden decor and of course the wood fired oven begging for another pie to be placed in.

Our tender was quick and pleasant. We had obtained prime seats at the bar som beers we not empty for long before a fill was produced.

With multiple taps...from both house and guest breweries AND 5 gravity beers pouring how could I be longing?

I know that this is THE PLACE for pizza but we were here to drink and grab food elsewhere.

A really nice locale that will most certianly be revisited!

Had dinner here a couple days ago visiting VT. They only serve pizza and a salad, but it's all excellent. The food all comes from local sources, which I loved. Our salad was nice and fresh and the pizza was just awesome. We had a couple beers. I tried their Gruit, their Bock, and their IPA. They were all very good. The atmosphere was great and it was pretty busy. The brick oven was part of the dining room, which was neat.

Recommended to me by BA's and I highly recommend this place if you're in Burlington.

The beer is not bad, decent on the zero gravity house brand. The attrction tonight was a special Magic Hat night, yet only one special Magic Hat was on, the Chaotic Chemistry. Taps are good and so that alone attracts a more mature portion of the crowd. Large bar area and good sized restaurant. Good it was open, as it was closed for reno or whatever on my previous trip here two years ago. Good experienced waitstaff who even knew a bit about the beers, but you needed to be around the bar to get it. Not much selection in food but it was very good. Reasonable friendly to meet other patrons.

After a relaxed (and lengthy) lunch at the Vermont Pub & Brewery (on 19APR08), Alewife and I trekked the long 75 or so yards across the street to the Burlington Hearth of American Flatbread.

The brewpub is in the first floor of a non-descript multi-story building, with the Hearth portion being a drab, brown color, with two sets of tall, narrow windows on each side of the central entrance. Once inside, after a short hallway, you find the bar on the right, rear side of the bright place, about 1/2 of the length of the building. It is long and J-shaped, made of solid, light wood, with intricately carved pillars behind the bar set astride shelves of bier glasses and dozens of bier taps. To the front right of this room are a half dozen or so tables near the window. In the rear of the right side of the building are 2 long, Oktoberfest-style tables seating about 16-18 each. The entire place is brick, top-to-bottom, with wooden ceilings having ductwork hanging from it. A large brick archway leads you from right side to left of the business, where there's a brick hearth in the far left, rear corner for pizzas. This side of the building has about 2 dozen 4-seater tables with red and white checkerboard tablecloths, plus 4-6 booths along the inner wall. A great looking place, with an extremely comfy feel. A hallway in the rear of the right side leads to restrooms and the brewing coppers.

Sitting at the bar, we had solid, friendly service from our 'tender. On tap were 8 house-brewed biers, topped by 2 super, very tasty IPAs (Sim City and Capt Rons). In addition, AFB had a bottle list which looked to be 100-plus strong.

We got there in mid-afternoon, before food came on line, so it was not too crowded. Shortly thereafter, the throngs arrived for food. We didn't partake, but the menu looked enticing. General thoughts of the Hearth? Highly recommended. Highly.

Prosit!!

Flatbread is my favorite of the three brewpubs in downtown Burlington. The quality of the beers and food is exceptional. They believe in the concept of "keep it simple stupid." There menu consists of one salad with one dressing that you can add local blue cheese or local goat cheese to. Besides that, they offer flatbread pizzas emphasizing local and organic ingredients.

The "Zero Gravity" house beers are well balanced and good examples of the style being represented. The selections are constantly changing allowing for many different tastings.
The non-house draft beer selection also has a good rotation including internationl selections and domestic specialty beers that are a treat to try on draft. The bottle selection is varied in styles, countries, and price ranges.

They do a great job keeping the place interesting for the beer fan. The events they put on are worth checking out. I've been to a beer and cheese pairing which was excellent. April was IPA month with 3 house IPAs as well as a number of other ones.

The atmosphere and service depend on the time of day. The bar staff is generally friendly and knowledgeable. There is almost always a wait for table service in the restaurant, so the bar area catches the overflow of waiting customers, including their children. For me, children don't help the atmosphere in a bar area.

Overall, there always seems to be something new to try. That's what keeps me coming back for more.

Wen to this place Friday night for dinner while visiting a friend. This was my first time in VT and my initial thought was that it was a pretty cool state. Burlington is a fun little town and the people are all friendly. I will be going back this summer to camp and to check out Magic Hat (which was shut down for the month for upgrades).

The bar area here was crowded (and always is from what I hear). They have about 10 taps and 2 cask ales at a time. The bottle list is extensive and has great thing on it like Saison DuPont, Orval, Dogfish Head (quite a few), Jolly Pumpkin, Unibroue, Samual Smiths, Ayinger, Stone, etc. I had two of their own beers, Dwayne's Dunkel and thought it was pretty good. I also had a cask IPA called Captain Ron that was well balanced.

The menu was simple, yet it had something for everyone. One of my guests was vegan and it was simple for her to find exactly what she wanted off of the extremely descriptive menu full of organic, locally supplied menu items. All of the food is cooked in a huge clay hearth in the back corner. I had a sausage, onion, swiss, and herb flatbread and it was awesome.

The service was friendly, quick, and painless and it wasn't too expensive (especially for being right in the heart of "downtown".

I would definietly go back.

This place was a real treat on a bitterly cold Friday night in March. While it was very crowded (1hr wait), we were able to get a couple of bar seats during the wait. Atmosphere is nice with dim lighting around two good sized rooms (a bar and a dining room). There is a fireplace at the end of the bar and the dining room has an open "kitchen" which mainly consists of a large wood-fire fueled stove to cook the flatbread pizzas.
The beer menu had a good variety of styles of which roughly half were house-brewed "zero-gravity" beers. I had the TLA IPA and the Wheat IPA, and while the wheat was good, the TLA was one of the best fresh IPA's I've had. Clean grassy hop flavor in a medium bodied beer that went down waaay too easy. Prices were very reasonable on these as well. The flatbread pizza went well with these beers and there are plenty of them to choose from. Overall this was a very enjoyable experience and if I'm up in the area again I will definitely be returning. Highly recommended.

This place was cozy. They had dim burning old fashioned lightbulbs. I have had the pizza there a few times and it is awesome. The pizza is thin crust and we always end up eating way too much, it's just that good. I hear the Brewer is Muncih trained and it shows, his German beers are tip top notch and I have lived in Germany and I am a German beer snob. Service could use a little giddyup though, other than that this place rocks. Best beer and pizza in Vermont by far. Well best non English beer the Norwich Inn makes the best English beer. The rest of the beer selection is really good too, probably the best in the state. This place beats out the three needs which was my old and long time number one place for beer in Burlington. Still love ya Needs but Flatbread is cranking out some crazy beer.

I visited this place last year on a trip to Burlington, VT for the weekend. Our friends who are living in Burlington took me here for dinner one night and I have nothing bad to say about it except for the fact that there were so many people. As we first walked in, there were delicious Vermont beers waiting on tap at the bar. When we finaly sat down, ordered, had some more beer, and the food came, this is when it won me over. The food here is phenomenal with all organic ingredients on the flatbread. The beer selection is vast and the food is delicious. If you go to Burlington, please try and go here. Not a bad price for anything either. Well worth the money and time.

Stopped here during my trip up to Burlington for the Vermont beer festival. The place is small on the outside but takes up two parts of the building. The right is the bar which seats about 10. The left is the restuarant.

We got there about 6:30 on a Friday and holy crap was this place packed. We put our names on the list for a table and were told a 2 hour wait. I lied to the people we were with that it was only 45 minutes because I really wanted to eat/drink here.

We hovered around the bar and got some drinks. The offered about 10 of their house beers which were all great (yep - i drank all 10.) They also offered 10 guest taps which, because of the Vermont beer fest weekend were all Vermont breweries. The nice part is that you can get half a pint of beer. This was nice and allowed me to sample.

The food was great. Only thing they offer is Pizza & salad. I had both and they were awesome.

I really reccomend this place.

Went here the day after attending the Vermont Brewers Festival. Very clean, well-lit establishment. Upon entering, there is a bar area on the right and a dining area, including a fireplace on the left. There is an outdoor area as well. This place is all about variety/accomodation to different styles...a variety of music was playing.

There is also a large variety of beers. Ten of their beers were on-tap with a large variety of styles. Also, a handful or so of guest taps extended the selection. There's an extensive list of bottles of craft and imports. You're sure to find a style that fits you here.
No standard sampler is offered, but the bartender freely and enthusiastically offered samples in wine glasses. Very friendly, efficient service. The bartenders were knowledgeable about the beers.

The beers were very true-to-style and varied. Most were very tasty beers. This is certainly worth checking out and would be a regular place to go if I lived in the area. Excellent!

American Flatbread/Zero Gravity is centrally located in Burlington, across the street from the Vermont Pub & Brewery. The restaurant is very open, with plenty of seating at the long bar and in the dining room. The brick walls and dark woodwork add to the charm.

All they offer for food is pizza and salad, however it's fantastic pizza. Freshly baked in their brick oven and topped with all fresh ingredients. I wish they had a few more items on the menu though. The beers brewed on premise are spot on for style and served in the proper glassware. I tried the IPA, gruit, and Belgian dubbel. All very tasty.

I arrived with my friends after the Vermont Brewers fest and the bar was hopping. The bartenders were very busy, but attentive to your needs when you could grab their attention. We ate at the bar, so I can't comment on the restaurant wait staff.

This is a great restaurant and pub which should definitely be on your must visit list when in Burlington, VT.

If you read my review for Vermont Pub & Brewery, then you already know that American Flatbread is the obvious next stop. Just a few steps brings you to the front door of this very nice establishment, in reality a pizzeria that serves eight house beers and ten guest beers, many being Vermont craft brews. They also have an impressive selection of international beers in bottles.

Once inside this interesting looking building is a small bar on the right, beyond which is an old-fashioned wood stove (the smell of burning wood permeates the place), and dining room to the left; pass through the brick archway to another dining room.

Having recently lunched at Vermont Pub & Brewery, I missed the chance to sample the very tempting and tantalizing (Is there a difference?) pizza; however, I was tempted and tantalized by the excellent beers served efficiently for $3.75 a pint. My choices were the T.L.A. American IPA and an incredible Farmhouse Ale Saisson.

American Flatbread should be part of any Burlington (or Vermont) pubcrawl. There is another location in Middlebury, but the hours are weird so check ahead.

Updated 11/17/09: Just returned from a vacation in Vermont where I had another opportunity (or opportunities - I went twice) to stop by; nothing has changed; it is a great place to visit, drink great beer and dine on delicious flatbread pizza. If one had to choose one place in Burlington, this is it.

Wow, I was going over my beerfly reviews, and couldn't believe I have yet to review flatbread!

I love this place. They do it right. Atmosphere is awesome... with the huge beehive brick oven right there in the main restaurant. Everything down to the restrooms is well thought out and clean. A nice little peak into the brew room in the back, is very tantalizing.

Service is very good at the table. I'm a younger guy though, so at the bar... sometimes I get passed over a bit, until the bartender realizes I am really appreciating the beer. Most of the time, if I ask questions about their new 'zero gravity' offerings, the bartender is decently to well informed. (mind you, there are many offerings that I've seen in flatbread that have not been rated here.... I have at least two to add, that look like rare seasonal offerings of theirs... will add soon, once I review 20+ beers)

The glassware is almost always appropriate, for style of beer, which I love to see in brewpubs. The other tap offerings (besides the 'Zero Gravitys' are extensive and impressive collection. I have yet to get away from the beer that is brewed on site there.

The food is done right. organic salads and pizza's.... and that is it. And they are delicious. I put my pricing as reasonable.. because the quality is very high. It might be considered pricey, but like anything else, you get what you pay for... so I consider it reasonable.

There is much more to say of these excellent place, but there are many high quality reviews... and I would rather leave you wanting more (or at least enough) so that you do check this place out!

Located on St. Paul Street across the street from a small green with shaded trees sits this very tasty pizza joint that just so happens to double as Zero Gravity Brewery. Stopped in for lunch this past Saturday with a bunch of fellow beer/pizza lovers. As you first walk in the bar greets you to the right with a bunch of tables to the left. Down a step into a restaurant area there are more tables for pizza eating and beer drinking. We elected to sit outside as the sun was shining and there was a faint warm breeze in the air. The outside, which is in an alley next the building, gets a fair amount of light and shade. There were probably had 10 or so tables in this area.

Beers on tap included a good selection of guest offerings as well as a good number of Zero’s own. From memory there was a saison, black lager, bock, fruhfest, and a pils. I sampled the saison and the fruhfest, both of which were quite fresh and tasty. Guest taps included locals as well as others from across the pond. Smutty robust porter, Allagash, Spaten, Leffe, etc. AFB also boasts a nice selection of bottled beer, but I was in the mood for a freshly brewed beer, and who wouldn’t be right?

We ordered 3 pizzas, but one was not one that we had ordered. Before the waitress and our group had realized the mistake, half of the pie was already gone. No matter as she brought us the one missing pie without any extra charge! That’s service. All four pizzas we sampled were very tasty---sausage, cheese and herb, pepperoni and peppers, and punctuated equilibrium. The saison, the first in the Belgian series, went very well with the food.

The waitress was attentive and friendly. The food and beer was of high quality and very fresh. This is a place that you want to hit for lunch of dinner if you’re looking for something casual. Cheap pint and food prices. Worth a visit if you can.

I had heard so much about this place, but had never been there before on my numerous auto treks to Montreal. I made sure that I made it there on my driving to/from Montreal last week. There was also a bonus as a cask fest began on Weds. night and I was able to pop in for same.

The place is deceptively big, as there are 2 large rooms, with the bar being on the right side of the room you enter. They also have some outdoor seating in their alley way. High ceilings and the bar looks very Irish Pubby. A clean look. The brew house is in the rear, which you pass on the way to the restrooms.

On my Monday night visit, Kirstin (sp??), was the bartender and she was a real plus to the overall experience. She gave me many sample offerings and provided answers to all of the questions I had pertaining to their own brews. A very nice young woman who is obviously a beer maven herself.

On to the beers, the draughts running that night were:

Their own "Zero Gravity Beers"

Christina Pils--a light crisp German lager
Mr. Black--schwarzbier
FruhFest-- a warm weather marzen
D'Kinna Bock--strong, malty lager
T.L.A. India Pale Ale--hoppy, bitter amber ale

Guest taps:

Allagash White
Celebrator
DFH 60 Minutes
Gritty"s Pub Ale, Leffe Blonde
Magic Hat Belgian Wit
Murphy's Stout
Pabst Blue Ribbon
Rock Art America Red
Rodenbach Red
Sierra Nevada Porter
Smuttynose IPA

On cask was their own Villier's ESB and Rock Art IPA on Monday. On Wedsnesday they also had Otter Creek Otter Kilter Scotch Ale.

They also have an impressive bottle list with lotsa Belgian's represented.

I tried most of the Zero Gravity stuff and some of the other guest taps. My favorite ZG beers were their FruhFest, which was indeed a lighter bodied marzen, the Villier's ESB and D'Kinna Bock, all very nice. See separate reviews.

This is one of the best beer places I have been to in North America. I will be sure to get back here when I am driving through in July and August.

If you have not yet been there, get there.
