I always visit this establishment when I make my way into Burlington. Take a wonderful walk around town and then come here for dinner. The food is exceptional, and the craft beer is wonderful.

The only downfall is the popularity of the place, last time I went the way was fairly long for a table. Nice ambiance with well place lights and extremely cozy tables.

As with anywhere in Vermont there are a bunch of nice people to chat with while waiting.

The beer selection is extensive and usually your server is knowledgeable about the beer they are serving.

In the end, this place will always hold a place in my heart; A+

Very good beer and nice selection. Burlington is a great beer city, so its hard to go wrong anywhere here. American Flatbread/Zero Gravity is in an old brick building which gives the place great atmosphere. What really sets this place apart is the huge, freestanding, wood-fired brick oven in the corner of the dining area. The pizza chefs are right out there creating and baking pizzas in the oven. Besides a salad and specials, pizza is all they serve. But they are very good and made from local or organic ingredients when possible. For beer, they serve an excellent variety of their own Zero Gravity beer along with a great selection of American craft and imported beer both on tap and in bottles.

American Flatbread is awesome. My wife and I frequent this place fairly often. We have never had a bad experience. The bartenders have a great knowledge of the beers that they offer. The selection is wide and varied. My wife is more of a wine person and they also have a great selection of wines and have always been knowledgeable about what they offer. The food is very, very good and the New Vermont Sausage pizza is to die for.
I highly recommend this restaurant with the best beers on tap in Burlington.

Definitely the place I wanted to eat at while I was in Burlington. Right off Church Street, a view of the city hall. The place was fantastic awesome vibe to the place my Pentecostal Preacher Mom even complemented on the feel of the place in a good way.

The flatbread was outstanding fresh and yummy ingredients. The waitress was friendly, and suggested some of brews for me to try even brought me some free samples. You really got to love that. The tap selection and bottle list were large and the house brews were tasty.

A great place all in all I wish there was one in my home town. The prices were great considering the location they are in. I will return to this place when I am in town the next time.

This is one fine establishment! Let's start with the beers. They had 5 house beers on tap(an IPA, English Pale, Blueberry Dubbel, a stout and another belgian), and a cask poured from a beer engine. The cask was IPA dryhopped with warrior, and was outstanding. They also had a sizeable guest tap list, with some rare offerings from Stone, DFH, Allagash, and Smutty. The flatbread food quality was amazing(all organic and local), and you can have a field day with different pizza/beer pairings. The staff was freindly and knowledgable. If you're visitng Burlington, definitely make this a must-stop.

What can I say, I LOVE THIS PLACE. I have been to many brew pubs and have had amazing beers at most of them but it is rare that I have had a beer here that at worst I can rank very good. The balance of beers styles and as well they show other great beers from local breweries and from around the world. The atmosphere and food is outstanding as well, there's nothing like having great beer and being able to have food that is equally as good. As the last person said, if your within an hour distance you should make it a point to get there. This place is a must visit.

Been to the Burlington facility a few times, and always really enjoy it. The bar is an impressive structure, and it fits the overall atmosphere very well. The bartenders are, by-and-large, very knowledgeable and passionate. As busy as this place gets, the service is always pretty good.

The beer list is a good combination of home-made beers (like 14 of them, and another 6 or so high quality guest beers and ciders. 3 beer engines.

The menu is all pizza - everything made on-site, and very good quality, fresh organic ingredients, etc. You just better want pizza

Inexcusable not to come here if you are within an hour or so of Burlington

My wife and I did a quick, one-day visit to Burlington in mid June which included visits to all three brewpubs in the downtown Burlington area - Vermont Pub, American Flatbread, and Three Needs (listed in rank order from best to very good). They're all within walking distance to each other and a block off the main pedestrian shopping area. These three visits put me at 195 breweries/brewpubs visited.

It happened to be the week of the Burlington Jazz festival and our stop at American Flatbread for dinner included a really nice electronic funk jazz band laying down a solid groove just off the bar near the entry. For some, this would have been too loud and too crowded. For me it was great.

We sat at the bar and I enjoyed three house beers - IPA, Grisette, and what I believe was an India Pale Lager. All three were well done, but I'm giving a lower score to selection because there weren't that many house beers on draft. The flip side to this is they did have a fine guest draft list including Allagash Confluence wild ale and some Dogfish offerings. You really can't go wrong with their quality beers and great pizza.

Visited Flatbread for lunch on 5.5.09 during their REAL Ale Regalia. Inside has a decently sized bar with several hightops, booths and tables. Lots of wood and some large flat screens. Outside has a nice sitting area (looks like a converted alley) with several tables which was where we sat. Couldn't beat people watching on St. Paul St., sunny and 70's. The wife and I had a large flatbread pepperoni pizza which was pretty reasonable at $13 and was absolutely fantastic. Extensive bottle list; however, somewhat pricey. The real draw was the cask list. Had the opportunity to sample Rock Art Belvidere, Zero Gravity London Calling, Magic Hat Belgian Blonde on cask and the Zero Gravity Grissette on tap. Awesome place. Beer prices were reasonable at $4-$5 a pint and a nice range of Zero Gravity offerings; however, I thought the bottle mark-ups were a little steep. A must visit if you are in Burlington.

Thank you American Flatbread/Zero Gravity Brewery! I have tasted some of the best beers from around the world because of this place and their extensive beer menu. It is like being a kid in a candy shop every time i sit down at the bar. Most of the bar staff really know what they are talking about and take the time to explain what you are drinking and why it is the way it is. The food is very well paired with the beers and the atmosphere is great. Sitting outside on the patio in the summer is an ideal place to socialize and drink tasty beers.
The in house selections are just as good as the "Beers from Beyond, which are changing weekly to offer a good mix. The best times to go are early evening or late night. The event nights are always a full house and a great time had by all. Hopefully beers togo/growlers will be coming soon so i can enjoy these beers all the time!
