I always make a point of stopping in here when in Burlington, even if it's just for dessert and a stout.

Modern and lofty inside the main floor with a fairly large outdoor patio adjacent to the sidewalk. Downstairs it's more of a traditional and cozy pub feel with lots of wood and a plethora of boardgames to play- Great place in the winter.

Have about 25 tap offerings of mostly good, local, Vermont beer with usually a Californian, Belgian, German, and some other quality regional New England offerings. From Vermont you can usually count on Trapp, Hill Farmstead, Lawsons, and Otter Creek on-tap, however, I always find Hill Farmstead and especially Lawsons to be out whenever I'm here (not surprisingly I guess). Never ventured to their beer menu but it looks solid with some vintaged offerings.

Service never seems to be an issue here, with prompt service and staff always eager to recommend something for the style you're into.

The food is quite good, with unique and local ingredients always incorporated into the menu. Can't go wrong with any of their cheese boards, salads, or burgers. It seems I always end up here for dessert which never disappoints.

Prices for food are likely on the higher side for Burlington even though it is quality food, but their on-tap offerings are decently priced.

If you're in Burlington for a night or two this place is a definite must-visit. There's bound to be something in their on-tap or menu list that'll satisfy you along with good food to boot.

One of the better places in Burlington, beer and food indexed together, and best place for beer alone. Outstanding tap list, very good service, very solid locally sourced food- but also very pricey- it''s easy to spend $20 on a burger here. Also, the place sorta has the vibe of an upscale fern bar- definitely either sit in the beer garden or at the bar. Good selection of local Vermont beers combined with a judicious selection of out of state brews.

Pretty happening little place located on Bank Street. Their taplist is exceptional as they keep a fantastic lineup of Vermont ales and lagers and then their New England list is just as good. I was here late Summer of 2016 when they had a Maine tap take over so seeing Foundation, Austin Street, Bissell Brothers, and Oxbow in larger amounts was a super nice surprise. Exceptional service, always clean and stellar food. Please give this place a shot.

Easiest the best beer offering I have ever come across. Featuring the finest of Vermont, this place is to craft beer what the Vatican is to Catholicism. A must stop wh4n traveling anywhere near Burlington, VT.

The Farmhouse was one of the main reasons for me going to Burlington, and rightly so.

Busy place, even pretty early on a Wednesday night. Nice mix of longer tables and small, two-person deals.

The taplist was, as expected, crazy. A bunch of Hill Farmstead, which I believe they always have, and a good mix of styles and places. I was very happy to see two Frost beers, Junior and Lush, up there, so I had them both.

Service was quick and friendly, despite the amount of people dining. The food was also terrific, had the burger, and the beef was incredible You can tell it's local.

It's obvious why this place is rated so highly, not only mong beer people. If I lived in Burlington, I would be here all the time!

Cool restaurant in downtown Burlington, right near the Church Street Marketplace. Expansive draft list of many different beers, great menu, and a neat outdoor patio with a small bar. This place pretty much has it all.

Beers are great and the food is just as awesome. Service was intermittent, but overall good. Was a bit pricey, but what do you expect for the location and fare.

I got some Hill Farmstead beers, Shelburne vineyard wine, raw oysters, and this grilled bratwurst that was great. I would recommend this place any day.
