Fairly quick stop on the drive back from the Hill. Doing a brisk business on a Thursday afternoon. Small place with a bar and a few tables around the outside. They had about 8 taps running while we were there. Everything available in small pours (3oz) for $1 each, which pretty much rocks for the tickers. Server was friendly, helpful, and happy to talk beer and beer trading. Lively atmosphere. Beers by and large pretty dialed in and enjoyable. Recommended.

Cool little brewery with various offering style speaking. Pretty much all brews are great the exception would be their Pitch black. Being that close to Rock Art and not far from the Waterbury/Stowe area makes it an interesting spot to an already vibrant area. Food selection is not super vast but everything is fresh an tasty. We had the open face roastbeef sandwich the meat was incredible. The cheese platter had a super nice apple sauce, the soup was excellent but perhaps a little too spicy. Growler filing is available. Flight are served in little tulip glass which is really nice. Personal favourite would be the Petit Ardennes, the Gose and Lost galaxy.

Food, beer, service and ambiance, this place is the full package. And right on the recreation path to boot.

Visited 7-11. One of the places I really looked forward to going turned out to be a dud. Pulling up, it looked cool with an outdoor area with people talking, eating, and drinking. It was pretty packed, so we decided to head inside to check stuff out. Super hot in there, but we wanted to have drinks so were prepared to make do. I asked who looked like the head bartender for some flights and was very rudely told that if I wanted that to go outside and ask a server. Guy had a hat on, but looked like he has long darker/grayish hair. If you see him, he is a dick. That right there pretty much put me off, but we still wanted beer. One server who greeted us when first entering saw us come back out and asked if the guy inside was rude to us, so I figure itís a common occurrence. Really sucks heís still employed there for how he treats people, and workers (more on that later). Who knows, maybe he owns it and can do what he wants. Anyway, we got the last table outside and a very friendly server helped us from there so it was much better service. Selection was ok, but some drafts they were out of, and even some cans, so it was slim picking. I didnít really like anything I got besides the Gose. That was good. The IPA tasted like a hefe, and the pitch black was horrible too. Food looked amazing, however, we had already eaten so we skipped that. The price on each flight was very good, so no issues there. Towards the end when we were leaving the same dick bartender was outside and asked to see one of the female servers. We heard her say what did I do now? Looking over he was bitching about something in her face and then left. I will say I wouldnít go back here ever again. I know most people have rated this well and will probably get on this bad one saying give it another chance, but first impressions go a long way. I know Iím the minority here because a couple times we were out and talking to each other about going to Roack Art again and both times locals overheard us and said we should just go down the road to Lost Nation instead. We said we didnít care for it and people were shocked each time, so this might be rare. Who knows, maybe it was an off night for them. Iím just rating based on my experience.

A nice little brewery taproom. They typically have a solid range of beers on offer, which tend to be of very good quality. The food here, too, is very good. The ambiance inside is fairly charming, even though it doesnít look like much from the outside. The service was friendly and efficient.

Definitely worth a stop if you are driving around this part of Vermont.

This is an excellent place. The food is outrageously good I think though only served during summer months. Excellent tap list with growlers / bottles to go..sometimes cans. Itís small in the winter time with limited seating but lost nation just has this excellent vibe.

Another brewery that wasnít on my radar. The best part was running into the same people at the third stop in a row, as well as their awesome dog. Long, narrow place, darkly lit, upscale rustic vibe. 6 beers on tap, along with several guest taps. 2 bottles available. Small food menu, tasty food. Samples are cheap but bottles and food were pretty pricy. Beer quality was overall very good, but there was a lot of similarity between different beers. Customer service was excellent. Nice place.

Whether youíre a Vermont local or just visiting, there are a lot of microbreweries & pubs to choose from and this place is definitely worthy of being a high priority on that list. Takes a little doing to find it as the roads and the maps donít quite agree and the place where they are looks like a public works dept. & a lumber yard from the street, but they are back there, in the rear of the red building. The staff, both waitresses and bartender were super friendly, helpful and all surprisingly very knowledgeable about the beer, food and even the guest brews. They had six of their own on tap this day with three other guest brews as well. We took the sampler to start and some food, despite not being very hungry at the time. I liked that they had several of the less common, everybodyís got em, beer styles (Gose, Saison, Pilsner, Blonde Belgian) but felt they were lacking of a Stout, Porter or Barley Wine, something on the bolder, malty end of the spectrum. Being a Stout fan, I was surprised when I didnít find their Pitch Black brew to be worth the anticipation, when I finally got to that end of the sampler board, but I was very happy with others as I worked through, particularly the Petit Ardennes & Saison Lamoille and went back for more of that after properly emptying all the sampler glasses. Inquired about the guest brews and was promptly given a generous taste of each and in a decent glass, not a plastic thimble... The food, largely composed of locally sourced ingredients, was really outstanding and I quickly went from "Iím not so hungry, Iíll just pick" to ravenous and wanting more. In fact the memory is making me hungry as I write this. Overall, one of my favorite places so far. Very respectable brew, great menu and food in an enjoyable atmosphere with nice people. Looking forward to returning regularly and will be looking for their beer on the taps of other establishments.

Nice little brewery tucked behind a old mill looking warehouse in Vermont. Great outdoor patio with wafts of delicious meat being grilled. We choose to cozy up next to the bar inside and had a nice tasty cheese plate and went through the gamut of brews being offered. The gose was the standout with all the other offerings having some appeal but nothing too memorable. Staff was friendly and atmosphere was relaxed and unpretentious. Nice place to stop on the route from Greensboro to Waterbury !
