Love every opportunity I get to enjoy a brew here. Awesome atmosphere, indoor and out. Seated right by beautiful Lake Champlain. Delicious food next door at Deep City. Their IPAs can be dangerously delicious! Good thing Burlington is a great walking city! Always something new brewing, surprise your taste buds. Cheers!

Very nice brewery on the Burlington waterfront with views of Lake Champlain. Staff is super nice, and this is a good venue to take kids to as well. Great outdoor socially distanced space as well for COVID times.

Cool little spot. Saturday in November and it was jammed the whole time- would like a deeper tap list and more indoor space but would definitely stop there again.

Visited this with outstanding brewery my wife in the fall of 2019. If you are anywhere near Burlington, you have to come. You can sit on the patio with your pup's with the view of lake. The beers are a outstanding. Service is equal. They have food but we did not eat.

Beautiful location basically right on the lake close to down town Burlington. 2 outdoor seating areas, one in the back and one in the front (lake side) with seating options inside. The lay out of the place has a both 'old school' feel to while also showcasing more modern artwork and decorations. The outdoor seating on the lake side is plentiful and very scenic especially in the summer. Service was pretty straight forward, you go up to the bar and order your drinks and food if you want. Nothing fancy there. Selection was predominantly New England style IPAs with a couple of sours and a stout in there (there was probably 10-15 beers on draft available). The bar for the outdoor patio does serve some different beers than the bar inside so you want to check availability of beer at both. I didn't get any food while there so no comment on that.

Overall, this is one of the nicest locations for a brewery with beautiful outdoor scenery (with plenty of seating) and very good offerings in the NE IPA style. I will definitely look to come back here again.

A fairly small, nicely decorated taproom/package shop in a nice location close to the lake. They have their beers on tap and in cans, etc. as well as some outdoor seating, shirts and what have you and all the other accoutrements one would expect from a newer taproom on a place like Burlington making good beer. Everything is just so and despite the fact that I was there on a day when they were having an event that made it much less comfortable/welcoming than it ordinarily would be, I liked it and hope to come back in the future.

I like the atmosphere more than their beer. Inside or out, hanging out in Burlington is always a nice experience. The beer is good but it doesn't stand out for me. I've been a a handful of times as it's a nice place to hang out.

First stop on Vermont Beer Safari. Easy to find ad park... looking out at Lake Champlain. Really cool modern interior. Big beautiful bar; plenty of tables; live music/DJ set up. Nice little swag area. Good lively local / college crowd. But also everyone seemed beer knowledgeable. Place felt young; vibrant and very friendly. Servers (Jackson in particular) were great; helpful and had great beer advice. Good ops to try multiple beers side by side to guide choices. Was even able to split a 16oz can of Bonus Track 10 (not available that night on draft) with others at bar so all could each try a good 3oz pour. Lot of fun; and made our part of the bar a blast. Everything and everyone seemed proud of the beers but also that all had fun while trying many beers. Just a great place.

Foam is tucked back in the opposite corner of where the Skinny Pancake is in Burlington. The building is really nice on the inside and out. The had a good assortment of beers on tap. The service was very good. They had some live musical entertainment that wasn't deafeningly loud but sounded just right for the size of their taproom. It's a cool spot though and I would gladly go back in the future.
