See, I’ve never seen this stretch of 100, as we always run straight at that light back there out to 15A or some shit towards G Bend. Damn, it got dark quick. The snow sure didn’t help, and the road we turned onto didn’t actually connect to where we needed to be, so we had to criss across cross to right ourselves. But we found ourselves Lost just the same...

Far corner of the building in a set of buildings that are an industrial park behind a residential neighborhood. It’s a small tasting room proper on the end of a brewery. ‘L’ shaped tree slab bar with a plank wood vertical base on the inside wall, seating 10 on hightop wood chairs. No barback to speak of but the wall there holds an 18 tap row inlayed within phat post framings. ‘Genesis project’ growler filler to the left, stereoings to the right, and a large square board further down listing house & guest taps.

Wide wood plank floorings, and drop ceiling with a pair of spinnys & exposed ducts. Red walls all around with mounted cone lamps and light lanternings. Decor, well there’s a painting of a farmhouse that this place is not, a Pilsner Urquell print, a small Orval tin on one wall, and a large long one on the opposite wall over the door to the brewroom, an Arabier print to the rear and I can see an Oerbier print in the big window above the bar, I guess the office. Surely you don’t think you can keep it safe from me. Shirt, um, tree in the rear corner of the bar, and slight kitchenings beyond.

A pair of shorty 4 seat tables just inside the door, and 3 lengths of tree slab bar counter running adjacent to the bar at different heights; lower on the ends on windows offering views of Vermont nighttime mischief and higher in the middle.

12 taps in all. 6 house (a sampler of all dealt in 3oz taster glasses for $5, went there); Gose, 4.5%, excellent, a bit, and I mean just a bit of sweetness there; Vermont Pilsner, 4.8%, really nice, sharp, good bitterness, I do dig it; Petit Ardennes, 4.2%, light, easy drinking, spicy and a bit fruity, total WIN; Saison Lamoille, 5.9%, funky & oddball, I don’t know what or why; Rustic Ale, 5.4%, herby, earthy, pleasant enough; Pitch Black, 5.4%, smoky phenolic, not over the top or full on, but enough, so that, no. Gose, Vermont Pilsner, & Petit Ardennes were the best of ‘em. And 6 guest taps; beer local (Lawson’s Big HAPI India Black Ale), and import (McChouffe), and non beer local heroes; cider (Citizen Cider brose), a Kombucha drink thing (Organic Strawberry Joy Kombucha), and sodas (Rookies Root Beer & Ginger Beer).

Food menu board on the rear wall; cheese & charcuterie, soup of the day (sweet & sour squash butternut), a handful of sandwiches (grilled chee, tempeh & veggie panini, chipotle bacon patty melt, cubano), and a single entrée, that being a NY strip steak. It we hadn’t gone all Worthy, I’d be a grilled cheesin’ as we speak.

The sampler was pretty inexpensive as is everything else ($4 pints, $5 imperial pints, & $10 growlers). All of their house beers are under 6%, actually the 3 of them I liked the most under 5%. Nice sessionable stuff here. Light foodings, I definitely good have ‘etten here. Good crowd, and the music; well, it’s the blues, baby, the blues. Yep, we’ll do this again.

Can't believe I forgot to rate this place after visiting with judkinst on a motorcycle trip through Smuggler's Notch! Fantastic food, as expected, with the grilling and preparing being outside on the patio as it was a beautiful summer day. Top notch, fresh beers, as is also to be expected. Had the Gose and Mosaic IPA, both incredible and pair well with almost any menu option. Great vibe and location. Service on the patio was better than inside, where the dude was pretty sketch.

Funky location and, if you are a first timer, kinda interesting to get to but perserverance pays off. Glad I did and got this stamp for my beer trail. Food is wonderful and interesting menu. Just Vermont friendly and busy in a good way with lot's of folks who I could tell really enjoyed getting some good beers with friends. I will go back next time I am in the area this spring. look forward to it and so should you. Go!

The Wind is awesome, the other beers are good, the food is delicious, the music is great. What's not to love?

Great burger! Beer tasting is a good way to start and the paddles and write up helps beginners and also those who cant track 8 beers on a board. Outdoor seating ia great when the weather is nice especially while enjoyimg their Gose or the wind.

Come enjoy the lovely smell of smoked meats and have the most impressive beer sampler this side of Russian River. 8 beers for $8 lets you run down nearly every beer on tap. The range of styles isn't particularly wide, but each offers a different flavor profile. The Wind is a standout beer worth the trip itself. Staff is very personable and knowledgeable.
