I've been enjoying the beers from Switchback for a while as I've been visiting Vermont fairly often over the past few years. I'm glad I finally was able to make it to the taproom. Pretty crowded with a good selection of beers I've only been able to get in cans (I do wish they were available near me) plus a nice limited release. Staff was friendly and have me plenty of info on the special beer. Pretty crowded on a chilly Saturday afternoon. If you are in Burlington, definitely give it a visit.

Visited on the last couple legs of Burlington Brewtours. Taproom's not huge, but the tasters were a fare, good size.

Nice, spacious taproom which often features live music. Usually 3-4 offerings on tap with bottles available to-go. Saturday tours offered.

Nice little spot, had some interesting beers on like a gose and sour. beers were above average, better than Queens, but not as good as Zero Gravity of Foam. Worth checking out but third of the four we visited.

There's something about Vermont that's just cool, and I can't really describe that without writing far more than is needed here, but Switchback fits the bill. You have the brewery itself, and then the tasting room, and then the people and it's just "chill"... if I'm not too old to use that word. It's just relaxed. You've got a nice friendly brewery dog (or maybe he's an office dog, I don't know) running around, and everyone's just having a good time, even the employees - and you don't see that too often.

There's limited food (I think just it's just hot dogs), but you can bring something it in or have it delivered, and there are eight beers on tap as well as the option to buy and drink their seasonals there. The eight taps cover the regulars and a fair amount of specialties. And it's a good looking place. It's nicely polished, and comfortable; and they have live music on Fridays and an open mic night on Wednesdays.

There can't possibly be anything that I've said here that hasn't been said before so I'll just wrap it up: worth a stop.
