Solid vibe in this large warehouse esque place. Good high ceiling and open doors and large selection of beers as well as food. Enjoyed sitting inside.

Garage style area with tables. I may be in the minority but I wasn't remotely impressed with any of their beer. There are so many better places to go around there so I won't return.

I really like this place. Didn't stayed long, only for a few cans and a t-shirt.

The place is not so far from the highway so it's easy get there. The place is really nice, industrial like. You order at the counter and sit after you get your beers. There are a few tables inside and outside. A few board games are available.

The beer selection is good but almost limited to IPAs and sours. They have a few other styles but they rely on their specialities and that's ok.

Overall a really nice place, and from what I tasted, good beers too! I will definitely stop on another trip to Burlington.

A bit of an out of the way for the Burlington area. Basically houses within a metal shed with a serious lack of space. Tons of space outside with nowhere to sit! We had to stand and drink our beer next to the brew tanks until a table cleared up which took about 30 min. A single file line to get your beer. The staff was very nice and the patrons inside were all very nice to converse with. The merch, cloths, glasses and artwork on the available cans is high grade. Excellent quality brews. Go on a weekday if you can.

I come to Burlington 3-4 times a year for work and I always make sure I stop and have a beer or two and pickup a couple of 4 packs. My last trip I was two coworkers and we visited 5-6 other breweries and we all agreed that BBCO is our favorite. Keep it up guys! Wiah I could get your beer in PA.

stopped in right before NYE 2018

vibe was chill and not many folks in the place(always a plus)

selection was decent mix of IPA's/Stouts/Sours

service was fine
and the beers themselves were good (not great) as nothing really blew my lid off

Visited on a Monday for lunch. Food menu was excellent in range of choices and we loved the tacos we ordered (one was lamb and one pulled pork). 16 beers were on tap and 23 were available in 16oz cans. High quality all around.

This brewery is around the corner from my companies office in Williston, so I had to stop here after training right? Small taproom on the backside end of an industrial building. Maybe 12 tables with a bar on the left wall. 5 taps and a couple more for samples out of the can. Cans and growlers to go. 5 bucks a flight, tasty beer, friendly guy behind the bar, dog friendly, I don't think you can go wrong with a visit here.

these guys are pretty quickly starting to make a name for themselves. despite being open a few years, it seems only recently their work has come into vogue, and they are really taking off. their space is a little off the beaten burlington path which is nice, its quiet out here once you find it tucked away in a warehouse. they are apparently expanding next door, but for now, its a small taproom with only a few seats at the bar and some small tables set up around it. big garage doors let in the late summer sun, and the equipment and barrels line the rest of the space, pretty minimalist and blue collar. the dudes behind the bar were not super busy, but did little more than serve the beers, and werent much interested in small talk, but they were prompt and attentive, and took care to make sure the glassware as all clean before serving each pour. the beers are what its all about here, before coming in i had loved a couple of their barrel aged offerings, but none of them were on during our visit. instead, a somewhat homogenous menu of hazy new england style pales and ipas was all they had, which as first was a let down, but once i dug in a little deeper actually was awesome. the honey one (beekeeper) and the peach one (peach on earth) were both outstanding, incredibly new school and on trend, and very unique at the same time. they are making some killer beer here no doubt about it, and its well worth stopping in to have them fresh and try the latest. we didnt have time to try them all, so i am looking forward to making it back here before too long! dont skip this place if you are hitting the local breweries around burlington, its well worth the short drive out of town!

One of my favorite closest brewers to my house. Always friendly quick service, always an exceptionally clean place. Prices are reasonable for flights, cans, and bottles. Trevor is who I normally see as the beertender. I forget the other guy's name who works earlier in the week. Check it out if you're in the Williston area.

Very chill vibe, great brews on offer with friendly, knowledgeable staff. Definitely a nice place to stop and have a couple of pints, they even have some Nintendo's to pass the time!

I visited this place for the first time about a week ago. It was near closing time, so there were only a few patrons in the brewery. The bartender was very helpful and knowledgable. I have only had a few offerings from BBCo, but everything has been great. I left with a 4pk of Orbital Elevator and Wizard.

As a graphic designer, I really appreciate the design on the cans and all of the icons they create for their beer. They set up of the space is really well done.

Have to say this one of my favorite places, maybe my favorite place to grab a beer.
The variety of beers is always incredible. The music is always solid.
Really love Trevor and Nick serving up beers and up for a good talk when possible.
I like it better in warmer months as it can feel chilly and damp in winter.
Overall, love this place.

Pros: video games! Games, vibe, art, selection, merch offering

Cons: wish the beer was better, small environment that was pretty packed on a Saturday night, long line for beer

If this was in Burlington, it'd be a regular stop. But seeing it's outside the city and the beer is just average, I don't know if I'll ever make it back there.

Cool spot to stop in. It's a large warehouse, with a small bar, and ample table space, TVs & video games. Friendly service, and cranking out some consistently solid brews.

This place does not disappoint. Always a beer for everyone. Can even bring the kiddos. They have Jenga, Connect Four and ping pong at the brewery. Staff knows their beers and great with selections. Love them!

Love this brewery. Almost reluctant to tell you how much because I selfishly don't want it to blow up, because I want it all to myself... Seriously though, BBCO serves up fantastic beer and their space is a fun place to hang out in. See you there.

Visited the other day while making a tap run to local breweries in the Burlington area. I had not yet tried any of their offerings. By far the best of the breweries we went to, and we visited some of the more established ones in the Pine Street area. While the vibe at the others was polished in an attempt to be hip, Burlington Beer was just hip. The tasting area is in the corner of the warehouse, from the bar you can see all that happens in the process. Will definitely go back and try more...

Burlington Beer is located in a fairly expansive and open warehouse where about 20% of the space is sectioned off as a taproom with small bar and a half dozen or so tables. When I was there they had 6 beers on tap and 3 others available in 4-pack cans. The staff was very friendly and efficient...the place was packed and the beer quite tasty. Look forward to going back and watching this company grow.
