Looked like an old dinner, with micra paneling, swivle chairs at the bar, and checkered pattern on floor. 16 taps availble, and around 20 bottles, a bit on the pricey side. Limited tapa menu (cheese platters, salami, olives). A very nice and homey place, needed in Vermonts capital.

This place was hopping when we arrived. Local focused draft list, light on the HF but had double sunshine and lots of other beers Iíd never even heard of. They all were great, plus a superb reasonably prices bottle list. Has the beer bar feel, more so than any other place in Vermont. A place Iím used to and like, Iíd be back for sure. The food menu looked great, wish I had eaten there.

Stopped in here during a recent vacation. Really enjoyed the atmosphere, the selection, and the service. Friendly bartender poured me some tastes and was quick, even though it was busy and he was the only one on staff. I thought the tap selection was thoughtful. Didnít have any food but it looked really good. Would love to come back and do a good session here sometime. I thought the prices were a nip high, but otherwise pretty cool.

2013-04-26. Nice little spot in a quaint little strip of the city. We managed to get street parking a short walk away despite it being quite busy at the time. We walked into a VERY busy bar side around 5:30 on a Friday night and were happy to find seats in the quieter dining area. Beer selection was pretty good with a selection of styles and breweries. I was driving so I opted for a root beer and stole some of Mabelís flight, which were a bit disappointing but still stuff we were glad to try. I got the burger which seemed a bit small when it arrived but after one bite I had no complaints. Delicious! Mabelís stew was also excellent. Finished dinner with some Old Rasputin brownies which were delicious. A serving of three brownies is a bit much though!

July 29, 2011. I visited this place earlier this afternoon, having known it was open at noon, I would have had lunch there. The food menu is small but nice, next time Iíll eat there. The beers, alot of good stuff on tap, I hade two of the three Hill Farmstead on tap and they were realy good. No bottle at this time because they had a problem with their basement, but thatís OK, there is to many goos stuff on tap. And the two bartenders where great and knowledgeable. Montpelier is a nice town to viste, this place makeís it even better!

When I visited: Late May 2013.
What I had: Sixpoint Apollo Wheat, Ballast Point Yellowtail Pale Ale, Dieu du Ciel! Pťnombre IPA Noire, and Grassroots / Three Penny Song of Spring on tap, sample of Founders Doom Imperial IPA, Gueuze-Braised Rabbit and Spaetzle, Spring Chicken Stew and Pastry and white wine for the wife, Old Rasputin Brownies to split.
What I liked: Exceptional food, beautiful dining room, first-rate table service from our waiter, solid and clearly visible draught list, good music, lively atmosphere on the bar side.
What I disliked: We had a group of seniors staring at us the entire time that we ate, which made things a little uncomfortable. Unlike our waiter the bartender was surly and seemed bothered when I asked for samples. He also took forever to bring the check. The tap lineup, while very good, didnít blow me away.
Would I go back? Yes. Despite its shortcomings this is still a great beer bar and resto.
Overall Rating: 82

We had 4 beers and a kielbasa with kraut for $33. Not bad for a Friday night in Montpelier trying beers that Iíve never had before. They have Delirium on tap which is a plus.
Beers here rotate often so come back every 2-3 months and youíre guaranteed to find something new.The staff was super awesome and friendly and attentive no matter how busy the place got. Seating was hard to find and most people were younger and very very loud but itís fine because the beers were great. I donít go out much anymore so noisy bars just donít do it for me.
Easy to find, to park and get in. We still found a seat after 20 minutes of waiting on a Friday night. Iím really surprised that the average beer price was $7. Not bad at all. I canít wait to go back!

Visited 2/12/14 with Linh, Minh and Angela. Normal bar area with additional booth seating in a side room. Solid bottle list and an even better draft list. Expect hill farm, heady topper, zero gravity and other fresh pale ales. This would be the dream hometown bar. Good service.

Stopped after a Hill Farmstead beer release for a couple quick glasses of draft. Superb taplist, all the beers we had were in great shape. The food menu was narrow but tasty, value on the beer was pretty good and selection was good as I already mentionned. Lots of Vermont stuff but some other good out of state stuff. Service was really good. Just a great time.
