Just opened... been there twice... small store front right in downtown... not much room for much else but a 20’ bar, a few small tables and a shelf that runs along the wall opposite the bar. They have 16 taps plus a couple of dozen bottled beers. Good selection of beer, some not seen in this area and a few are real quality selections... a little expensive for some of the offerings. Not much for food... a few "tapas" offered, but the focus is definitely the beer. Staff is (owners are) very friendly and knowledgeable about the beer being served. The combination of a decent selection of drafts and the friendly atmosphere will bring me back time and again... :-)

Great place. Sat at bar, ordered s meal along with a couple drinks. A bit hard to find parking, but not fault of taproom. Great bar service.

People are extremely nice, selection is fantastic, food is really tasty. Has more of a dive bar feel than places like reservoir or pro pig, which I like. I’d never leave if this was my local bar.

Overall a really great bar. Nice selection with really good service. We were able to talk with owner/bartender who was going hundred miles an hour to service his customers. Knowledgeable about beer and the local market. Made some recommendations on places to eat. Great list of locals and selection of beers from other markets. Definitely a place to visit when in Vermont.

A small venue in Downtown Montpelier, the smallest capital city in the United States. A place where one can get Lawson’s Finest Liquids, Hill Farmstead, Lost Nation, Zero Gravity, and other locally brewed beers on tap in a pint glass or a half pint. Not a ton of seating so get there early because a lot of people like to visit this place. I did not try the food but it looked good and many people seemed to be enjoying it. Kids are welcome.

Downtown Montpelier makes parking an adventure. Once inside, the bar area is nice and long with lots of patrons to boot. Dining area is considerably more plain. Lots of natural wood, floor, table, chairs. Service is very good and the tap list is full of local favorites. Food was outstanding and the prices are extremely reasonable. One of the best places in Montpelier.

Stopped at the Three Penny for lunch on a Friday. Really relaxing atmosphere. Great taplist including Hill Farmstead, Heady and Lawson’s. Half pours available. Fast and friendly service. Flatbreads and the trout sandwich were really tasty. My favorite place in our Vermont trip!

An outstanding bar and restaurant. The beer range is fantastic, with a strong emphasis on local breweries; Hill Farmstead, Lawson’s Finest Liquids, The Alchemist, Lost Nation, et al are commonly found on tap. There is also a small but well-chosen bottle list. The food options are quite good as well, all tasty and nicely prepared. Good service. The value here is decent. Given the quality of beer, food and service, it is absolutely going out of your way to visit.

Stopped in on the way back from the HF excursion. Nice little space with a fairly large bar separated from a smallish dining area by a wall. Pretty standard bar ambiance. Large removable chalk boards list the available taps. Another board at the back of the bar lists available bottles, which are not many in number, but carefully selected for impact. A more geographically distributed taplist than many places here, but they still had the obligatory vermont beers, including HF Everett and Edward. Staff was friendly and helpful. Did not try the food.

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.
