A very cool restaurant and a must-stop for anyone visiting Burlington.

The tap list was ridiculously good, likely a little better than usual due it being the weekend of the Vermont brewers festival. There were multiple offerings from Hill Farmstead and Lawsons among others and two casks.

The food was outstanding as well. Had a cheese plate and burgers. Both excellent. All food is sourced locally, just like the beer.

Atmosphere is very laid back. Service was very friendly and informative, although a bit slow.

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.

Incredible beer selection, both draft and in bottles/cans. This place is Burlington's beer bar, hands down. The upstairs bar is a bit small, but the downstairs lounge is more than accommodating for grabbing some awesome brews. A constant stream of special events keeps this place right on top of exciting beers, from both near and far. The food definitely caters to the onslaught of tourists they receive, and is reflected in the over-priced and uninspired fare. But hey, they're always full, and the machine keeps churning along! In the summer, if you can snag a table, the outdoor beer garden around back is an amazing place to tip a few back!
