Another Burlington coffeehouse which serves solid beer. Not too much selection, but what they do have makes up for it. Rock Art and Allagash were both on tap on my last visit. You won't find any non-craft beers here, only quality brews. Beer quality is always solid. Atmosphere is very artsy; nicest bathroom ever. Live music most nights. My last visit featured a solo double bass followed by some jazz with a drumkit, two keyboardists, and a poet. Certainly a wonderful spot to just hang out when downtown.

Update: They have Nailbiter on tap from Magic Hat, this alone is why I've change selection to 5.0! Update: special beer not as cool lately, so I've lowering back to a four.

Coffee shop and a bar in one, why yes it is. And being that I love coffee just as much as beer, this fun little joint gets some good beer too ie Allagash (ME), Maine Beer Co. (ME), 14th Star (VT), Mayflower(MA), Banded Horn (ME), Queen City (VT), and Foolproof (RI) are some of the ones I’ve seen here. Since OC retired the Wolaver’s lineup, this place used to do a blend called a Five Dollar Shake using their oatmeal stout beer, but now they use 14th Star’s Maple Breakfast Stout which isn’t as good as when they did it with the Wolaver’s but still worth a try. Other liquors here too. Give it a try if you’re in the area.

Not a big selection of brews but they are mostly local, craft and quality. I had my first Fiddlehead here. This is a nice place for live music. I saw a kick ass bluegrass band. Cool festive but laid back vibe.

A hipster joint with live music. Poor acoustics and layout.
