This is a must go place if you are in Vermont. Especially if you are on a road trip to buy Heady Topper at the Montpelier Co-Op store, or just passing thru Montpelier on your way to Hill Farmstead. They have a great Vermont beer selection, including Hill's and Lawson's beers on tap. And the food is awesome. Three Penny Taproom is in a great Montpelier (capital city) downtown location. Montpelier is the only State Capital without a McDonald's.

Spent the last two plus years in Montpelier; this is one of the few things that I'll miss about being there. Scott, Kenna, departed Flan, and especially Ryan made us feel welcome and they created a great atmosphere. The taps were almost always more appealing than one visit could do justice to, and we loved their burgers.

Such a finely crafted place.
I have had several lunches, dinners and 1 event at Three Penny.
The staff is well versed in the offerings, food, craft beer, cocktails.
Locals and travelers blend seamlessly, the vibe is welcoming.
The craft list rotates frequently, the food is pitch perfect, yesterday was a short
plate of fried oysters, and an Arugula salad, each spectacular in there simple complexity.
The price point could take some pause, that said one of the finest places for craft beer and fine food
in central New England.

Cheers all

My brother and I stopped by here on a Tuesday afternoon around 2pm. We were on our way to Hunger Mtn Coop to buy some Lawson's Sip of Sunshine.
The place was pretty dead, maybe 4-5 people at the bar. The bartender and patrons were friendly and nice. The draft selection was great. They had about 25 taps with mostly NE brewed beers and a cider. I wish we could have stayed longer, but I had to drive to our hotel in Waterbury.
It is definitely worth stopping by if you are within 30 minutes of Montpellier.
