The revamped taproom is attractive with lots of seats and much improved food. (Trust me, the food was awful before.) The beer selection is standard OC fare which is found everywhere, but it's clean and tasty from the source. Often there's a pilot brew on tap and sometimes it's for sale in cans. The merch here is great and I think could be expanded even further, considering the strength of their design branding. Service is friendly and excellent- it's easy to leave here happy.

Worth the trip to Middlebury! Wasn't expecting too much but was pleasantly surprised. A nice shop, a great bar area with really good small bites for lunch/dinner. Good selection on tap and best of all the staff was phenomenal. We dealt with three different staff members and all were some of the best we've had in any brewery visit. The acoustics are a bit overwhelming and it tends to get loud quit quickly. Other than that, top notch place.

In a small town off the beaten path of Burlington. Has a modest taproom/pub that is fun and simple looking into the brewery through windows. Food is snack to light lunch or dinner and very tasty. Staff are attentive and very helpful. Glad I stopped in on my way through.

The sandwich I had was amazing, thanks in large part to the Jamtastic Jam they used. I decided to go with Shed IPA instead of Otter Creek, as I had never had Shed prior to that. It was definitely worth the stop on the way home from skiing.
