Very unassuming from outside and the bar extends very far. Place was packed while we were there. Just there for drinks but the selection was incredible.

This was the first stop on my VT trip back in Dec 2014. Everything was pretty decent with the exception of the service. I was too damn excited to get my hands on my first Lawson's beer (SoS) to care much. Overall, the experience was good.

Always great when you walk in and they have Heady Topper and Fiddlehead on draft. Food and prices were also great!

My brother and I ate there on Tuesday, Oct 28, 2014. We were promptly seated. The service was a little slow all night. We didn't mind it except for when were waiting on beer refills. I ordered the burrito with chicken. It tasted good, but the chicken was fried. I am unsure if the menu said it was fried, but where I am from, that is not normal.
The beer selection was excellent. We did the VT beers flight. Lots to choose from. Just check their website for their tap list if you are looking for something specific.

The poutine was killer!!! Such a huge portion we couldn't finish. Had a Fiddlehead IPA to go wtih it, and my husband had Lawson's Sip of Sunshine. One of the biggest and best OT lineups I've seen anywhere. Staff is friendly and it's a place where I feel right at home, not pretentious and not over-the-top. My favorite place for a meal and a few brews in the area, hands down!

Oh, my. What can I say? They offer a flight of four 5-oz VT samplers. I picked Heady Topper, Lawson's Sip of Sunshine, Hill's Edward, and Zero Gravity Conehead. I wanted to spend the rest of my life there.

I don't even remember the food, but it musta been good too.
