Separated into a bar and a restaurant. Restaurant has window a counter that faces the outside with backed stools. Dining area is mostly wooden booths without any padding. Light rock mostly playing the background.
A rotating tap list of Hill Farmstead and other VT brews with one or two very rare Belgians. Rodenbacher Alexander was on tap when I went.
Food is a bit pricey as is most Vermont. Small portion burgers for about $12. Pints run about $6 dollars or so some beers available in half pints.
Came in here for lunch (and sure, a couple beers) after leaving Hill Farmstead. Was not disappointed. Two areas here--more of a dining room and then the bar area. We took a couple seats at the bar. Nice old wooden bar and plenty of beer paraphernalia all over the walls.
Great service from the bartender--really friendly and personable guy, too. Good taplist with some stuff from Bissell Brothers, Hill Farmstead, Burial, and plenty of local Vermont beer and cider options. Really a nice draft menu.
The food menu was solid as well. The girlfriend got the fish and chips, which were very good. I went for the fried chicken sandwich--awesome choice. Protip: get some of their house hot sauce.
Good prices, good service, good beer, good food. Come here.
Had to swing in for some Lawson imp stout. Nice place I didn’t get any food. The prices were quite high in my opinion. I mean we are in montpellier not new York city. You would think the prices would be pretty good nope. The selection was nice but pretty much the same as other places in the area.
Stopped in for lunch and a couple of beers while in VT for a weekend. Was fairly empty after open, attentive staff, great burger at a reasonable price and the other food looked yummy too. Had a few HF beers, a Lawson, a couple nice ciders and other local stuff. Definitely worth a stop if you are anywhere in the area.
Semi busy stop. Paid parking right outside on street. Its look is a bit dated. Typical pub in center of town. Service was pleasant enough. Noting outstanding. What makes this pub special is their beer line up. As mentioned before. Frequent offerings of HF etc.
We visited Three Penny Taproom multiple times on our visit to Montpelier. It feels like quality beer can be found in pretty much every café/restaurant/bar in town, but this is the main beer destination and a must-visit. We frequented during the day and in the evening on a Monday and even then they have a steady stream of drinkers. We sat at the bar area with a mix of locals and beer tourists. They have 24 taps of some of the best beer in the world – Hill Farmstead, Lawson’s, Grassroots, Allagash etc on offer. Couple that with a plentiful supply of Alchemist cans and you have a selection that is hard to beat. We were only too happy to sit here and sip back HF… Do yourself a favour and go visit.
Visited around dinnertime on a Friday night in Apr-2013. Extremely busy bar, but the waiter found us a table in the restaurant near the back (which eventually filled up). No music playing, lovely wooden tables and benches. Ate the Chicken Stew and Pastry, and the burger, and both were tasty. We tried a flight of three (excellent) brews, but it looks like they have about 24 beers on tap, including: Allagash, Smuttynose, North Coast, Southern Tier, Hill Farmstead, Ballast Point, and others. Not a bad a little spot, I quite enjoyed our experience. Also, Old Rasputin brownies. Yum!! (4/9/13/10/9/16) 84
Visited here twice in mid November, just for the beer. Easily the busiest of all the bars we tried. Service was still good. Tap list was top notch and seemed to rotate continually. Highlights were Abner and Hermit Thrush Rakau. Lots were drinking cans of Focal Banger. Missus found it too bustling, and the prices seemed higher than average, but I’d definitely return.
