Swung by the bierhall for lunch while in VT for a few days. In so many ways it's the cure for the hop-saturated visitor. Beautiful location that's a fork-in-the-road away from The Alchemist. Long winding dirt and gravel road through the trees brings you to a lager-oasis. Sparkling new beer hall that's clean and spacious. Nice large benches and tables with a view of the brewing equipment. Merch out front if you fancy.

Half dozen of their beers on tap; we enjoyed the pilsner, Vienna and Oktoberfest. All crisp, clean, fresh and delicious. No guest beers for sale so the selection is limited to their own beer; bottles/cans available to go. The food was awesome - super tasty and runs the gamut from light (sliced and salted radish) to heavy (freshly cooked brats). We had the radish, salad sampler, chicken schnitzel and pretzels. So good. Sauerkraut-mash is heavenly.

Great vibe, cool scene and fresh beer abound. Like I mentioned - it was the break I was looking for, and the kids had a great time as well. Worth a visit.

i love this place, nestled way up in the hills in stowe, and part of a much larger compound that includes a hotel and events center and a whole bunch of other fun stuff, sound of music related i think. you take a winding wooded dirt road up to the brewery, which actually is just a taproom now, there is a new brewery being built on the property, but there remains a bar in the bakery where the small old brewery used to occupy the basement. this is a wonderful place to have a beer, thats for sure. they had only four beers pouring while i was there, mostly their traditional german and austrian styles, but also a fantastic india pale lager. if you arent familiar with their beers, they are extremely high quality lagers, often very classic styles. the minimal selection is not a turn off, all four of these are summer session beers, and i was happy with the narrow selection. there is a great patio with astonishing panoramic views of the green mountains, and there is a large grassy area beneath it with lots of space and picnic tables to relax and sip. so mellow up here, hours go by like minutes. they had some nice looking food coming out too, but we only grabbed a chocolate chip cookie, which was awesome. overall this is one of the coolest spots in vermont, well worth the drive to get up there. we had an absolute blast here and will definitely be back!
