Stopped by very early in the morning for Lawson’s tickets. They were offering free breakfast and a new Lawson’s release. Draft menu is solid, chill bros working, but not the best atmosphere.

Great place to grab some cheap eats and great selection of craft brews. On my first visit had a couple of HF What is Enlightenment, and instantly fell in love.

Could it be the less charming place on ratebeer? Most beer places in Vermont are charming, everything is charming in Vermont. Not this Mad Taco. Awkwardly located on the ground floor of some kind of commercial & apartment building. View on the parking. A terrace in front looking at the parking but you cannot bring your beer outside!!!?!!! Ugly place to say the least. However the tap-list is well selected. They are physically close to Lawsons seem to be friends with mr Lawson so you are pretty much guaranteed to have one or two Lawsons on tap. For a special limited Lawsons release this place is one of your best bet. I went there because I knew they had Collaboration Time I on tap while it was gone from everywhere in VT. You are also pretty much guaranteed one or two Hill Farmstead and a few other quality beers. Focus on Vermont beer. Food is excellent, I love Mad Taco, I would make a detour for this Mad Taco but they now have a concession at Backblack in Waterbury so I can get my Mad Taco fix without getting out of my way. Service is typical small VT place, ultra-friendly stoner dudes with the mandatory grunge look, this is VT how I like it. I love everything about this place except the physical place itself.

An awesome little place. I came here at 9:30am and had the huevos rancheros with an HF Abner; it’s nice to know there is a place where I can go to drink HF beer with my breakfast. (I gather you could even get beer right when the place opens at 8am.) The eggs were great, very well made and tasty. The prices here are decent - but you do get great food and world-class beer. The staff are friendly and enhance this place’s laid-back vibe. If you like Mexican food and/or beer, this is a must-visit. (Also, there is a supermarket that carries good beer right next door - Mehuron’s.)

The best tacos in Vermont period. They always have Heady Topper, some Lawson’s DIPA and something tasty from Hill Farmstead. I a small strip mall right in the middleof downtown Waitsfield. Thier homemade smoker for the meat is right out front. This ain’t no fine dining establishment, Just great comfort food.

This was a wonderful find. Happened on this place based on a stray comment someone made about Hill Farmstead and where they like to stop on the way up. So I did the same and stopped on the way to the saison fest at Hill. Ended up getting a burrito that was enough food for two meals, and since I knew I’d be stopping again for more food (and I actually saved half of it and had a second meal out of it). The food was excellent (have had stuff from them again as they catered the VIP event for another Hill event), and the big selection of house made hot sauces is not to be trifled with. The beer list is great too. Nice selection on tap featuring a couple of beers from Hill Farmstead, and a few from Lawsons, and I think Heady Topper was on tap as well.
