I've been meaning to review this place for a long time. The beers are always decent. The selection is kind of limited though at times and sometimes, they may not have certain beers available in growlers. Other than that, the service is decent and the bartender recognizes me by face sometimes so that does make it easier. The food is good as I've had the angus burger before. The pricing is reasonable and I would say that it's safe to say that you won't spend more than $25 for a meal and at least 2 pints, depending on your tastes. A decent place to go to that could use some work on the selection over time.

What I had: Grand Slam Baseball Ale, Karlswalde Russian Imperial Stout, and Bombay Grab IPA on tap, several glasses of Ca’ del Sarto Pinot Grigio for my girl.
What I liked: Intimate pub atmosphere, super friendly bartender, solid range of styles on offer, beers are average to good in quality, cheap prices ($3.50-$4.50 pints), had a nice chat with one of the patrons.
What I disliked: None of the beers blew me away, no bottles or guest taps from what I could tell, server was pleasant but didn’t seem to know much about the beers.
Would I go back? Yes. This place is too much fun to pass up. It’s not a beer geek haven, per se, but it’s certainly worth a visit if you find yourself in Burlington.

A really nice restaurant. He food was excellent and the service was the same. Their beers are ok, maybe this rating is unfair do to all the word class breweries in the area.

I believe this to be the very first (modern era) brewery in Vermont. It's just an old style pub and brewery. Good pub food, excellent outdoor seating spot. Inside is vast and historic feeling. My kinda vibe!!

Another old school styled pub, lots of TV's all around the place. Lighting is a bit lower than expected but that didn't bother me too much. What makes this place nice to go back to when I can is being able always have stellar conversations with the bartenders. Yes, all of them - I've never had one complaint about any of them. Fantastic brewpub, maybe their beer style isn't exactly "modernized" for a lot of people, but give them a chance. Their food is quite good too.
