The best thing by far about this brewery is the service. Everyone serving tasters (and now pints) has been friendly and personable, enriching the experience. I don't ever have the heart to tell them that the beer is consistently disappointing. It used to be riddled with off-flavors, now those are gone but so is any flavor but water. Such a shame that this represents a brewing school in Vermont.

The shelves are filled with empty bottles and cans from other, much better, local brewers. It's kind of a shrine to VT brewing. Unfortunately, it just reminds me that I could be drinking something I'd enjoy a lot more.

Fair but not great beer

I have enjoyed every single one of my half dozen visits to Drop In Brewery in Middlebury, VT. Every time I stop in, I'm greeted by warm and welcoming staff that somehow remembers the smallest details I shared on my precious visit. Their Heart of Lothian was the first brew to steal my heart, and since then their 'Dude, Are You Okay?' IPA has become my favorite. They demonstrate a true love for the art of craft brewing, and I look forward to haunting their entry on a regular basis. Worth the 40 mile drive, every time.

only thing to change.. make it a tasting room.. where people can actually sit down and enjoy a pint.. currently one must stand or walk around the small retail shop with the drink of choice. make it comfortable more people will come in and stay a while. Great IPA and IIPA
