Vermont Pub & Brewery is a must stop for anyone going to the Burlington area. They've been brewing since 1988 and have an awesome variety of different styles they brew there. They also have quite selection of caske aged beers as well which is great if you've never had them before so make sure to ask what they've got.

As far as food and service go, it's one of the best pubs around. A lot of the bar tenders and waiters/waitresses have been working there for years and you can really tell they know their stuff. They have quite a selection of standard pub fare as well as some more diner-esque food like meatloaf and such. It's pretty cheap and you can be in-and-out with dinner and a beer for under $15. I'm a big fan of their chili as well it's only $3, but it's not the best if you're going to be sampling beer as it'll kill your pallet real quick.

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.

The Vermont Pub & Brewery is showing it's age. It's a little worn, and it's a little dated, but I guess to a certain extent that's comfortable. When I first stepped in I didn't think I'd stay, but halfway through my visit I'd thought I might stay all day!

The beers are always changing, and the food is reasonably priced, solid pub fare. If you're in the area and you've got time I'd certainly recommend it.

Dark-wooded bar in the heart of Burlington. One of the original brewpubs still operating in the US. Vibe is more bar-like and old school than what you see nowadays for brewpubs. A bit dated and dingy, lots of TVs. Nice bar on the patio side was nice when it got cooler out.

Service was normal and friendly, beers seemed fresh and reasonably priced. They focus more on the English Ale side of things, so lots of malty treats for those looking to escape the hop overload of the current VT beer scene. All in all a cool bar, maybe stop in if you have the time.

Went here on vacation with the family. The pub is nicely located in downtown Burlington with plenty of street parking if you can find it. There is an outdoor deck area to eat, but we ate inside. A two sided bar is to the right of you when you enter with dining tables in the bar area, next to it, and in a small sun-room. General pub atmosphere that is both family friendly but also a nice place to hang out.

Service was quite good and knowledgeable. Our waitress was very attentive and knew details to the beers I wanted to try. Our food came promptly, which was surprising since it was lunch time. Nevertheless, both of our meals were very good (I had the Reuben sandwich). Beer selection seemed limited to just what they brew. What I tried on my sampler was a wide range of styles and qualities. I am not too certain if they served any other beers at the place, so if you want to try the pub, be cognizant on their beer focus.

Overall, a nice atmosphere, good service and food, with unique craft beers at the place.
