Popular bar and restaurant with a great tap selection of mostly VT breweries. I came by a few times during the week and due to the general busy vibe here service was OK but on the slower end. It’s worth trying the food as it’s decent fare such as burgers, soups and cheese boards. The tap selection is excellent with a couple of Hill Farmstead, Lawson’s and Lost Nation to choose from amongst other interesting offerings. There’s also a fun bottle list to peruse and like most bars in the area there’s fresh cans of Heady Topper in the fridge too. On a nice day, enjoy the outside patio.
Stopped in for a couple of beers during the afternoon. Quite good selection of taps including some Hill Farmstead, and some fresh cans of Heady Topper. Not as good a taplist as the bars in Waterbury, but probably the best option in Burlington.
Very popular stuff, limited booking possibilities and otherwise, just get a buzzer and wait for your turn. An old McDonals improved for the best with the best beer selection in Burlington, especially now that Flatbread has abandonned the guest stuff. Centrally located, featuring lots of rarer bottles for those who are not satisfied with the already very good tap list. Attentive staff. The food is very good, but not quite as killer as some people make it and not particularly cheap. I mean, I’m always satisfied, but never really impressed considering the popularity and general goodness of Vermont local ingrédients - including the cheeses of which they always have a nice array here. Always one or two Hill Farmstead beers on tap which is always nice.
nice-looking place, very crowded when we went. Amazing tap list, mostly local, plus a very interesting bottle list that we didn’t even get to. Four from HF on tap. Our young server knew his beers and even suggested pairings. Great food too. One of the best places I’ve been to.

We visited The Farmhouse Tap & Grill on a Sunday evening for dinner and drinks. I was impressed how busy the place was even quite late on. They have 26 taps packed full of grade A malted beverages. Lots of fresh Hill Farmstead, Lawson’s, Lost Nation and some other rare offerings. (Including a tasty malt liquor!?). The food was really rather delicious and concentrated on local produce. I had some of best cheese I have ever had in the USA. We ended up spending all evening. A world class beer & eating venue for sure.
Arrived here fairly late on a Friday evening after a week’s vacation driving thru the Canadian Maritimes & Quebec sampling beer. This place was high on my list of places to visit but when we were told the wait for a table to eat was 1 1/2 hr my family almost bailed. That was when they explained we could eat in the courtyard if we could find a table (we did) and didn’t mind doing our own ordering at the outside bar.(we didn’t). First thing I did was order a can of Heady Topper,,,stupid move...should’ve ordered two...by the time I went back for a second their stock had run out...LOL! Of course there were plenty of great beers to choose from and I made a serious dent in a number of local beers (Hill Farmstead, etc.). The family and I thoroughly enjoyed the food (I had an excellent burger) and atmosphere. We met and talked to some great people...lot’s of beer conversations of course. The service was very good even with the crowd. Family had a great time...I loved the selections...I will be back next chance I get. I highly recommend this place...worth going out of your way for.

Arrived at 130, which was bad timing on a Thursday, super crowded with a 30+ minute wait. Plan accordingly, clears out around 230. The decor had a generic diner feel, just didn’t get it, a locals hang out for sure. Local tap list of roughly 20 beers including Edward and Double Sunshine, plus newer hyped beers like Mango Magnifico. Beer selection great, the rest was ok. Service was nice and into beer, but so busy, it was slow and disjointed. The food was fresh, go with a meat plate. This is a most stop due to the beer, time it right and only be prepared for a snack not a full meal.
Gorgeous beer board with intelligent selections from New England and abroad (only quality). Food I had for lunch was good, but nothing special (squash sandwich) and the menu essentially made up of burgers wasn’t especially appealing to me. However, the cheese display (and beer selection) made up for it pretty quickly. This and American Flatbread are now my 2 must-visit spots in Burlington since they are so far ahead of other in-town establishments.
A nice gastropub in dowtown Burlington, on 2 levels. First floor is the restaurant, nice and chic, upscale and the basement lodges the pub, with a nice British country atmosphere. The menu is upscale. But I only managed to get a spot in the pub, with a more limited, if interesting, menu. Had the crispy pig head (headcheese square deep fried, served with a side of wonderful baby kale in lemon). 24 taps, a lot of which are rare and delicious world class beers (Stillwater, Mikkeller, etc...). A great place. Arrive early, the place packs up quick!
