Former Crop Brewing...very nice outdoor bar dining area...with cornhole. Eight beers on tap... mostly solid. Friendly service. Cheddar fritters were exceptional.

Walked up to the outside patio seating area on a busy Thursday evening. Asked for a table for two. Hostess says: "it's going to be 15 or 20 minutes. You can get a drink at the bar". We went over the large outdoor bar and every single seat was taken. I walked back up to the host and told him it was full. I said, where should we go to wait...
He says: "oh, I actually just had a cancellation... Come this way". You gotta love it.
Good and service was excellent. Expensive. Quality taps. I took home a four pack of their most excellent Zog's APA.

Multi room larger restaurant and bar along the main area of Stowe...just a few minutes down the road from the ski lifts. Respectable beer options and food that I was told was "hit or miss" and "nothing special" (It can be hard to find steady and quality cooks in a ski town)

The highlight here is the outstading outdoor space on the back side...if you are lucky to be in town during spring, summer or fall...this back yard with a large bar area, tables to eat at, chairs to relax in and enough green grass to play a lawn game upon is truly a delightful oasis.

Worth checking out, especially when its outdoor drinking and dining season in the green mountains.

On the grounds of where "The Shed" brewpub originally stood, Crop Bistro Rose from its ashes. Name change occurred with new ownership and now it is "Idletyme Brewing Company."

After a cold snowflaked morning spent in Stowe, a buddy was running in the Heady Trotter race, he and I stopped in this nice and cozy brewpub. I had two beers, that were quite good, though I probably would have wanted them in warmer weather. A cherry session ale and their new version of a hefeweizen sitting at 4.9%. My smoked trout dip was phenomenal! My Reuben sandwich kicked ass! They put jalapeno peppers in it which enthralled me more. While the prices seemed the norm for the Stowe area, it's definitely not a place I could hit up all of the time. As much as I liked experience here, I wish I could have seen the place when it was The Shed or even Crop Bistro.

Let me say first off, I really like Doubletyme, their Imperial IPA. I was staying at a hotel a block away, and I went here for food and drink at the end of a long day of beer hunting. The food was good and I was enjoying the Doubletyme's. Perfect for my needs. Came back a year later around noon on a beautiful August day and everyone was out back around the outdoor bar. I really wanted to just sit down and enjoy a few beers, but I had other tasks ahead of me. If you are in Stowe, check this place out.

What a great spot! Outstanding outside deck area and outside bar. Beautiful setting, solid beer and good food. Definitely worth checking out when in town for Heady.

Crowded restaurant bar and crowd, service was ok. Food was very good for a brewpub; about 12 beers on tpa with 2 of the IPA's being pretty solid. Worth a stop in when visiting the Alchemist.
