Definitely a very nice dining room and pub area. A decent menu and nice beer selection. On occasion a menu pairing is offered with beer or wine. Service was good but the food selection and quality was a let down. The appetizers were phenomenal but the main courses were a let down.

Crop has come a long way in the last year. While I'm not in love with their in house brew list, the Idletyme IPA is legit. Great beer and very reasonably priced. They sell 22s to go or growler fills. They typically have one tap of Hill Farmstead (usually Edward) and a good offering of bottles/cans too (including Heady Topper). The new outdoor bar is a slice of heaven under some shady trees, right off the Stowe recreation path and the westbranch river. A little lawn with cornhole and ladder balls makes it like your backyard with a bartender and some good food. Chef Steve has really brought some great changes to the menu. We met the baker who makes the pretzels and they were excellent and the baker was very nice and gracious. The beer cheese sauce is drinkably good. Short rib poutine...need I say more?

Indoors there are two bars. The old Shed bar is a no frills good space and the brewing setup is in that space too. When they expanded a couple of years ago they built another huge upscale bar also. Something for everyone here. Check it out if you haven't already.

Bonus points, they are across the street from the Liquor store which sells crop 22s so if they are out of your choice at the brewery itself, check across the street.
