Atmosphere is nice and clean in here. They do a nice job of making the place look new. Nice Oerbier posters on the wall, along with paintings and a natural, low lit lighting, home style feel.
The quality of everything in here is nice, from the tables, to the clean pint glasses, to the great food and beer.
The service is pretty good. My party sat at a table the one night and the service was good. I was left hanging for a few minutes at one point but overall, it was nice. We sat at the bar another day and we're treated with much respect by the bartender. Very attentive and eager to talk.
The selection is great. Along with 5 house beers, they had several other Vermont beers in here, including Magic Hat, Otter Creek, Long Trail, Rock Art & Switchback. They even had a few other out of state brews on draft. Very impressive.
The food was excellent. We got 3 pizzas at our table. I had the goat cheese one, which was great. They'll pretty much throw anything on a pie that's on the menu. Really cool brick oven that cooks the pies in a timely fashion and gets things going in the right direction.
I'll definitley be back.

Traffic at the border was light, so we arrived early enough in Burlington to have lunch at American Flatbread, a brewpub highly recommended by locals and tourists alike.

This location is split in two sections, a bar section as you walk in and a restaurant setting to the left, where we were seated. Huge brick/clay oven, thank goodness the AC was blasting at full force because we would have melted.

Very impressive Beer list, 4-5 brewed on premises and plenty of guest taps, including McNeil’s Imperial Stout, Adnams Barleywine on cask, Saison Dupont and a few others. Excellent bottle list that was perhaps a little pricey but with a few gems that would have been worth the price. I stuck with the pub’s own offerings, the IPA and the Pilsner which were very nice, fresh and well made.

We ordered a few pizzas that were excellent, and in perspective weren’t too expensive, considering the amount we ate. A few Quebec buddies went the same day we did, and ordered one pizza each without knowing that you can feed between 2-3 people with those monsters. They gladly do substitutions for free, and you can get half/half pizzas to be able to try more varieties. The veggie daily special and sausage pizzas were our favorites.

Service was quite friendly, everything was clean, and I agree that this spot is the best I’ve seen in town, beating the pub & brewery down the street easily. I will be back.

A good place to hang out with the family. Lots of kid-friendly booths and coloring books. Perhaps a bit hot by the wood fire on a balmy Saturday night in Vermont.

But onto the food . . . the flatbread was excellent, enormous, and there were many choices ranging from scallops and shrimp to gouda and goat cheese. That's good because that's all they serve - flatbread and salad. Organic produce and farm fresh ingredients make this a great place to take your vegan or vegetarian friends.

There were five "Zero Gravity" beers on tap plus a wide array of draft and bottled beers. I had pints of the house IPA and the Stout and both were good although it was hard to turn down Saison Dupont on draft. A definite stop to hit next time I'm in Burlington.

Another nice brewpub/beer bar/pizza joint place in Burlington. This one has the best beer selection in town, methinks. The brews crafted here are excellent. Pauls Pils is insanely good and reminded me of moonlights, no seriously. The other brews seemed solid as well. The guest draft selection is nice with a good selection of locals and imports (a lot of rarer German tap handles are here...). Quality of the brews and my Salad was good, as was the service, but the pizzas here are insanely expensive. One size only, and no slices, and like $20 for a pie! They looked so good, but I had to stick with more frugal pizza options like Manhattan and Mr. Mikes! Still, very recommended when you are in B-town!

New to Burlington is American Flatbread a Vermont pizza company which most locals in the Burlington area already know about through their presance at local events and their frozen pizza selection in local grocers. The new Burlington location is due to be a brewpub also very soon but on my first visit has yet to offer any of their own brews crafted by Paul Sayler. The brew gear is in place however. Their beer selection is fantastic for the area and gives Manhatten Pizza a run for their money for the best tap lineup in town. With the addition of Paul's beers American Flatbread is sure to top all other local beer bars. Food is great, but only if you like flatbread pizza. They only serve salid and flatbread pizza. That's it! Hit the place and look for my future reviews when they become a brewpub.

update, 4.7.05: they finally have house beers. good stuff.
