I have a severe bias to this brewery since I was once employed here as the "filter guy". Its really some great beer, and the people who run it are great too. I just hope they didnt screw up one of my all-time favorites, the Alpine Ale, by making it "dark" : )

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 donít offer tours.

I liked this brewery. I didnít take a tour, but, had fun talking to the people in the tasting room, which included one of the brewers. They had most of there beers available to try or buy while I was there, except for a few seasonals, which is expected.

Small brewery that also brews Wolaverís organic beers... the tour gets you in amongst tanks and machinery. If youíre 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 Wolaverís Oatmeal Stout for breakfast.

Last week they let me in to shop an hour early when I stopped by. I hadnít been there for years and they just said, "if you wanted to buy somethign I can let you in," as I was walking through the parking lot. Great beer, great people.

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.

Small tasting room with a nice wall map where you can put pins in for where you are from...always fun. My wife and I enjoyed a 6 beer sampler tray and some of the free popcorn. The bartender was quite knowledgeable. Apparently they recently started offering food as well, but we didnít try it. They also have a small merch, bottle and growler shop. Itís definitely worth a stop if you are in the area.

The folks at Otter Creek couldnít 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.

beer tour 09/21/08 stopped by on our way to Burlington Vt. Almost missed brewery but for the alert eyes of my wife! Tasting room was typical, cases of beer and signs promoting various beers, cold cooler on one end. Circular bar held 6 taps featuring both Otter Creek and Wolavers brand brews. Bartender had a good knowledge of beer and styles as well as company history and was very helpful in directing us towards other Vermont breweries. Beer was pretty good, Wolavers Oatmeal Stout and IPA being my favorite from the available brews, and the Otter Creek pale ale (which is distributed in my home area) was already a known quantity. Recommend a stop.
