With an inviting little taproom and pub and friendly staff, this was a perfect little rest stop on the drive thru Vermont. They didn’t have too many things on tap that we can’t get at home, but we still found a couple new ones and enjoyed the company. Recommended! (Brewery #670)

Small brewery that also brews Wolaver’s organic beers... the tour gets you in amongst tanks and machinery. If you’re unclear on the beermaking process, this is a good place to go, otherwise the only benefit is to see the organic vs. convential processes. 6 beers to try in the tasting room, decent selection of merchandise (the t-shirt I bought is quite a conversation piece here in Charlottesville, VA). Decent daily specials. Operation seems very tight... some top notch beers. I could drink the Wolaver’s Oatmeal Stout for breakfast.

Établissement visité le 13 août lors d’un séjour au Bomoseen Lake State Park. Ambiance: Boutique sans artifice. Je n’ai pas fait la visite guidée par contre. Service: On a nous offert gratuitement une dégustation des produits. La personne à commencé à parler avec nous car nous parlions français et voulait savoir d’où on venait. Sélection: À mon souvenir tout leur produit était disponible mais malheureusement pas en bouteille individuelle sauf les 22 oz. Nourriture: Rien de disponible à part leur 2 excellentes moutardes. (25e rating d’établissement)

I’ve not taken the tour, though I’ve heard it’s OK. The main reason to visit is for the occasional tap-only beers that are available here in growlers and in a very very select number of local outlets (i.e., I’ve never found any place that has them though I haven’t looked really hard). Barrel-aged specials, fruit-accented versions of standards, and a smoked beer are recent offerings. Worth the trip to Middlebury just for this? Probably not, though it’s a nice little town.

Visité le 8 juillet 2005, avec LadySusan. La boutique est assez intéressant, pas mal tout leur bières en bouteilles étaient disponibles, ce que je ne peux pas dire pour Magic Hat, et il y avait des verres, t-shirt et un paquet de souvenir. J’ai faite la visite guidé (gratuit), c’était bien. À noté, si tu achetes ou déguste de leur bière et tu as l’air d’avoir moins de 30 ans, tu vas te faire carter!

The folks at Otter Creek couldn’t be nicer. There is always a beer on tap that you probably have not had anywhere else. Worth a visit. Make a day of it and get lunch at Two Brothers just down the road.

A must stop for any beer lover while in Vermont. Free tasting, growler fills, Otter creek merchandise and the majority of their beer available for purchase. All of this - and you can watch the beer being brewed at the same time.

Would have liked to spend more time here, but I have since had bottled selections and enjoy some of the beers. Nice people.

Good sized bar that make you feel inside the bottling plant. Good selection of all you normal Otter Creek and Wolavers beers. Two of the taps had The Shed brews from Stowe. They also had a light hoppy session ale on as a test batch that was very good. The Staff was very friendly and chatted us up about beers. Some people from long trail were also there bottling and having lunch at the same time. Turkey sandwich was great but I here the cheddar soup was excellent. Great brewery to visit even though they don’t offer tours.
