This place is located just a few minutes north of Burlington in Winooski, VT, whose greatest beer attraction is the quality bottle shop in town. At this bar, you will find a moderate selection of the widely available quality Vermont options and a smattering of other, none too exciting craft options. Relaxed athmosphere, just a few steps from some decent and better then decent eating options (the thai place is pretty good and its BYOB) makes this bar a worthwhile destination for a fresh pint before getting a bite to eat in Winooski

This is my kind of place. As a avid beer drinker in Vermont, it's sometimes nice to get away from all of the Beer Tourists that flood our favorite beer bars. This is just that. A local hangout, live music, and a wide array of local brews. I had some Maine Beer Co - Mean Ol Tom on nitro, in a pint, for 7 bucks. Thank you. Lawsons Sip on draft, more MBC on draft (Peeper, Zoe, Mo) and some Ballast Point Pineapple Sculpin. Looking down the bar, you'll see Heady's, Focal's, Miller Hi-Lifes, Narragansett's, and all sorts of in-betweens. Great little bar, cheap prices, and a wide selection.

If you haven't been to the Monkey House in a while, you should absolutely stop by!

The tap selection has grown by quite a bit, and the bartenders are very attentive. Lines are clean, glass is not always proper, but clean and not chilled.

If you're into cocktails, these guys do a nice job too. Pool table and old school arcade games also available.

Prices are fair to cheap compared to other local "beer bars." Often then have live music, which might mean a cover charge. A great place to have a quality beer in Winooski and a true saving grace to the "bar scene" for the town.
