Can't beat a place where you walk in Friday night after the VT Brewers Festival and they have 13 HF beers on tap.

Great food, good brews. Smaller selection, though usually some gems available.

Great little stop while in town for a visit. Nice atmosphere, very clean and a great tap/bottle list. We didn't try any food but the bar tender was great and the beers were all solid. Had a few cans of Heady Topper and hit the road. I would definitely recommend checking it out.

This is probably the bar I go to most often in the Burlington/Winooski area. Great tap list, cozy seating, outdoor seating in the summer, friendly knowledgable staff. Not really a college hang out either, at least not on the nights I go, so I can always grab a drink and a seat and actually talk with the people I'm out drinking with. Highly recommend it.

From notes 11/13.

Through the sleet and snow to the warm and inviting Mule Bar my girlfriend and I traveled with great anticipation.

The Mule Bar has a pretty basic setup which fits in perfectly with their keep it simple approach. Some good music played in the background at just the right volume. There were a couple of groups at tables enjoying themselves and a few individuals at the bar discussing the finer points of their favorite brews. I must note that during this trip it was quite evident that Vermonters are sophisticated beer drinkers, more-so than anywhere else I've traveled thus far.

Their very respectable, albeit smallish, tap list favored regionals and locals (Long Trail, Jack's Abby, Oxbow, Hill Farmstead). It's hard to beat a well curated tap list such as this one, and proof positive size doesn't always matter. When it comes to beer, freshness and attention to detail is king.

The bartender wasn't intrusive, but was always on hand when you needed him. We had the charcuterie and calamari which were both quite tasty and reasonably priced. Parking was a bit troublesome, but that doesn't lessen the taste of the beer at this unique beer destination. Highly recommended.

I had a very nice evening here recently. Great service, a very nice meal and they had a very nice tap list going. I drank Edward and Lawson’s Sip of Sunshine all night though they had other nice choices on tap and of course Heady by the can. I was there on Memorial Day weekend so it was a great place to go to avoid the Burlington crowd downtown.

I frequent this place and love it. Multiple Hill Farmsteads, Heady and Focal Banger, Real Lawson's beers that are brewed in VT, etc..Great bottle list as well. Cocktails are on point. The food here is great too!
