Visited twice in 2014 and 2019. A small little brewery producing some amazing beer. It is crazy how much they have grown. For my first visit had three on tap when I was there, a Dunkelweisse, an IPA and an all brett apa. All three were really well made and they had free samples. For the first visit they only were doing growlers but by the second one they had cans as well. I also love how you can buy beer from here and drink it in the pizza place next door. This is probably my favourite brewery in Vermont.

Visited with my wife in the fall of 2019. The vibe was ok, not much more then a tasting room. Service was average. They are not pet Friendly. Their selection was excellent. Had excellent beers on tap you can't get outside the brewery.

The choice spot for some drinks before the Tubledown Festival at the waterfront in Burlington, VT. The band Twiddle has a beer brewed with one of it's lyrics "relax and dream" a wonderful pale ale Fiddlehead created for them and the fans.
There's lots to love about this open space, picnic table style beer hall area. Selection is numerous with top quality selection possibilities. The vibe overall is good but the direct service from behind the counter was blah at best, snooty and uppity at worst. But that didn't affect our time there!! Love the brews and the support of my boys Twiddle!

Stopped at end of Vermont Beer Safari. Large building ... Half Fiddlehead and half Pizzeria. FH side had large space with plenty of bar and table space. Large retail area as well. Good beer selection; beers to go. Pizza ordered by tablet and then delivered from the pizzeria. Tasty pizza to go with tasty beers. I had a prochiutto Parma pizza to go with a Second Fiddle. Yum!
Very friendly staff, and had a great time speaking with Tasting room /Events Mgr, Brad. Definitely a mire than worthwhile stop.

Small room off a pizza shop. The most I've seen on at one time in the few times I've been is 3 beers. Looking forward to expansion, but I've also been turned off by their beers recently. Hodad used to be one of my favorites, now it's a thin, barley coconuty mess

This is a review from when I visited years ago, but somehow missed putting in a review. smallish taproom, adjacent to a pizza place. they were selling swag and to-go beer, but you could try the beer and get growlers. At the time they only had 3 beers available - the flagship IPA, a Hef, and a Blonde Ale.

I am used to taprooms where you can drink so this is a bit odd. You can have free samples of their beers but your beer and swag and get out. If they do not serve food you can’t just get a pint. They were renovating their tasting room while I was there so the space was very small. They only had I think three beers to taste and 4 beers in cans to purchase. The beers were excellent though and the service was fantastic. The pizza place next door you could buy your beer and drink it there with your food. The pizza place was excellent.

Visited the brewpub in September of 2017. Small place outside of Burlington. They had 1 beer on-tap (bring a growler, or 'rent' one... which you can return for a deposit... or just keep to take home) and 3 other brews available canned. Very cool staff.... and a nice gift shop. The best part is... it's located next to an amazing pizzeria (opens right into it) where you can grab your beer and go order some amazing pies. Really cool vibe... great food... outstanding beer.. all around A++ experience. Next time I'm in Vermont I'll definitely be going back.

I dropped in for some Mastermind as it's just down the road from our Winter Softball location. Next time maybe I'll hang around a bit and have some pizza too.

This was my second visit to Fiddlehead. The first time they only had tasters in the tap room. Second time they had a mountain of Second Fiddle. Like an idiot I only bought (1) 4-pack of Second Fiddle ..... it's an awesome beer and I should have bought more. Small tap room, get in and get out. If you are in Burlington you gotta go.
