Long Trail, and Shed!!! Also a few US and Canadian macros. It is always great to see Shed on tap. Food is solid and inexpensive. This place has been around for quite a while because of the solid food. Great location on lower church street. Good place to have dinner in Burlington if you're on a budget.

Very clean and cozy atmosphere. Nice lighting. Never had bad service even on the busy days, management seems to understand the need to keep some extra staff on standby when necessary. Most of the taps are rotating Vermont taps, with some Unibroue, Allagash, Mayflower, and Two Roads. Though more of a restauarant, they can give you a good meal with some great beers. Check it out if you’re in the area.

This place means a lot to me because it is where I tried Heady Topper! A nice restaurant with quality and relatively inexpensive food. The hostess and waitress were very nice. Great location in hip downtown Burlington. As for the beer, they had quality craft brews, including many local Vermont offerings. If I'm in burlington again, i will definitely come back.

Stopped in for dinner on a super hot summer evening in Burlington.... way too warm to sit outside, so we opted to sit by a window and people watch Church St. without the heat.
The draft list was mostly VT beers but there were some other US crafts. The bottle list was pretty good.
I would highly recommend this place for the food and reasonable prices. I had a filet mignon with a really tasty whiskey sauce with potato and vegetable for about $20 ..and a MacNeil's IPA.
My girlfriend had a very good lasange and an Allagash White.
We were both very happy with our meals. Service was good.

Stopped in for a warm-up before the VT Brewers Festival. It's worth a stop while you're in Burlington. The place is either under new management or ownership. The new folks in charge are focusing on better quality beer and food.

The place looked recently remodeled. I sat in the small cozy bar area, restaurant seating was also available.

Service was attentive with some craft beer knowledge.

Bottle selection was thin, but the 18 draft selections included VT craft beer favorites, as well as Stone and Unibroue products.

I didn't try the food, but the menu (and prices) looked upscale. I would have had dinner here if I wasn't on my way to the fest.
