I had the pleasure of visiting this quiet place during my visit to Vermont. Other than the town of Waterburythis was my favorite place in Vermont. Its out in the middle of nowhere down a series of dirt roads. They say they open at 11 but iff you arrive a bit earlier they will most likely let you in. The Vibe was like much like a comfy barn set up for people to enjoy drinks together. The service line was quick and there were about 8 bottles to choose from as well as growler fills on anything that was on tap. My favorites that I tried while I was there were Dorothy and Arthur. I met Sean briefly and gave him some SD beers and he quickly vanished without saying much. Great place and I would definitely return some day.

Beautiful brewery with amazing beer. Way out in the middle of nowhere and a major hike to get to but so worth it. Beers were all amazing. Lines weren't too long either.

Place is pretty much perfect.

I'll start of by saying that this is very remote but in a beautiful area. If you end up finding yourself on a mud and dirt road, do not be concerned because you are on the right path still. A few turns on dirt roads and you'll be there. The place is set on a rolling hill surrounded by trees. Great setting.

Vibe was great. Everyone there was there because they are a hardcore lover of craft beer. No one will make the effort to come here that doesn't know about the quality already.

Building is well set-up with the shop, the glass looking into brewing area and the tap room with the big porch deck. Very clean and spacey. No complaints at all.

Service was prompt, organized and very friendly. They will chat you up, give you sampler of anything they have and be very open in general about operation.

Selection was huge. Tons of PA/IPA/DIPAs on draft, among others and plenty of sours and saisons in bottles for both consumption on-site and to-go. Also available were vintages from years ago at an appropriate price for something so rare and tasty.

They don't offer food directly except for a selection of fine cheeses but they do have a food truck right outside if you're looking for meal. When I was there, a tasty BBQ place was on premises and the pulled pork sandwich was solid.

Again, the place is pretty much perfect. If you are anywhere within 2hr radius of HF, a stop is a must. The state and the drive are very scenic so it wasn't an issue for me at all (and I drove from
Boston).
