They only had 2 beers on tap to sample. They do growlers, but nothing in bottles or cans. Staff was great and there is a pizza place connected to it. Apparently they brew a new beer every 2 weeks, so it’s always changing.

Tiny little tasting room, three taps, free samples, very reasonable growler fills. They are also canning now and had a couple of four packs. Staff was very friendly. immediately adjacent to a wood fired pizza place that is quite good. The beers were all solid.

Nice brewery with a few if their beers on tap. Free tasting in a smallish but nice tasting room. Had 3 on tap when I was there. Solid beers for sure!! There is an attached pizza place that is separate, but does not serve beer. Supposedly you can just buy a growler at fiddlehead and drink it at the pizza place. Pretty cool. Worthy beers. Worth the stop.

So they only have 3 beers on tap, so one of those beers may have been a Kolsch that I am not super jacked about. They also had the 2nd Fiddle double IPA which was amazing!

Small brewpub with a wood-fire pizzeria attached. The taproom itself is small and includes several of their usual beers along with the usual t-shirt and other gear store. Folino’s - the attached pizzeria was great. The pizza was reasonably priced and the staff was fantastic. Certainly low-key and friendly. I’d visit often if I lived in the area. They also had gluten-free crust for the allergy folks and were very accommodating for my girl-friend who has a couple food allergies. They made her a really nice salad.

Stopped in for some samples. Tasting room was nice. Small, but inviting and nice view of the brewery. 4 free samples of the beers on tap, which were all great. Definitely a cool little place.

2013-04-29. Only two beers on tap when we were there (Helles Lager and IPA). The brewery is open more often than the pizza place next door which sucked since we were planning to have lunch there. Oops, my bad. They should probably put up clearer signage actually - We almost drove away thinking it was closed too. The girl behind the taps was super friendly, gave us a good spiel about the brewery and some tips about places in Burlington. I thought it was a brewpub so I was hoping to try more beers while there, but the two they had were quite good. Got a small growler to bring home. Beers are great, but you may see them around in town as well. We stopped at Shelburne Farms on the way here and did a nice short hike with a great view. I suspect they would strongly discourage it but a growler from Fiddlehead would go nicely with some cheese at the farm. Just sayin... :)

This place was a nice surprise. Just three taps: their IPA and whatever else they’re brewing at the moment. The head apparently was long time at Magic Hat and wanted to get back to the smaller microbrewery atmosphere and experimentation. Staff was really friendly and passionate. The IPA itself is fine, and the other two beers during my visit were quite good. It’s 5 minutes down the road from Magic Hat, and if I could go back to one, it’d definitely be Fiddlehead.

Nice little taproom right on Rt7. There are usually 2 beers on tap, the flagship IPA & a sesonal availalbe in full size and 1/2 growlwers. Folino’s Flatbread in the same building is a must do adn it’s BYOB, how conviiiienentt.

Heading out to Hill Farmstead for their Harvest Fest with Max via Waterbury for lunch we were driving on 7 when “Hey Max, was that a brewery we just passed?”
”Yeah, I think so”
“Want to go back?”
And go back we did. Fairly new place, opened in January 2012 from what they said. Only two taps running for growler fills and samples, though they have three taps up (sounded like the run doubles of a beer if it’s going well). Tried both beers and took a small 32oz medicine bottle style growler as well as a jar of pickled fiddleheads (which are delicious and I’m having to pace myself to not finish the jar too fast, and will certainly be pickling my own come spring). While I wouldn’t say this is somewhere I’d plan a vacation around, I would (and will) certainly stop in while passing by.
