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!

Liked the place. Menu didn't have a lot of things I was interested in. Our server wasn't at all interested in waiting on us. Had to come back and re-confirm every item we ordered. Did have a couple really nice beers, so that was nice.

On a recent trip to Burlington this was hands down the best place we went to! We were told to wait downstairs in the parlor since the wait for a table was 45 minutes. However, we liked it so much that we decided to stay. Amazing vibe! Comfy, homey and chill. There was a good mixture of adults eating and drinking and families hanging out with their kids. Great selection of drafts and bottles. I had my first ever Sip of Sunshine (wow!!!!!) and Susan from Farmstead which was also very good. The food was good; I had a nice bacon burger. The servers, hosts and bartenders were really nice albeit a little slow and laid back. I would definitely go back!

This place is legit. Great food and quality tap list. Not cheap but not outrageous either. Check it out when in town.

Wait, I need more characters....done!

Favorite place to drink in Burlington. Best quality tap-list in town, food especially the burgers are excellent although pricey. Beer Garden and the Parlor are fantastic for the different seasons up here!
