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... :-)

Visited 7-11. Located in a pretty busy area, metered parking, but luckily it was the weekend so no coins were needed. I parked down the street a bit and walked since there weren’t any close spots. Really nice place when you walk in. We were there to eat and have beers so we sat on the left side. Not busy inside, so not much of a wait. Service was solid, but we had a server who is one that doesn’t write orders down (big turn-off for me). Got my burger medium-rare, instead of medium-well, however, I never send food back so I dealt with it. Just wished they would have writeen down the order. Fries were awesome and thin and crispy. Friends had pizzas and both liked them. Selection of beers was insane. Tons of local top tier brews on tap, so I was happy. Was able to get Society and Solitude #5 and Grassroots Legitimacy! For beer selection, this place is one of the best. Value was pretty good too, and from what I noticed most places were pretty much on the same line for drafts, bottles, cans. No complaints, I thought it was fair. Overall, pretty solid. They gave us some sticker swag when we left, which I thought was cool. Most places you have to buy the decals, but they jusy handed it out for free. For beer, I think this is the place to go if you’re staying close.

Excellent taproom. Spent a lovely Saturday afternoon here after strolling around Montpelier. Interesting and new beers I hadn’t tried from Lawson’s, Hill Farmstead and Lost Nation. It was a great tap selection for sure. The bartender was friendly with everyone and I overhead him happily giving suggestions of other places to check out to a couple of beer tourists. There’s a dining room next door if looking for a meal in a relaxed environment. A must visit.

Stopped here for lunch and some beers along my journey. Friendly bartender made me feel like a regular even though it was my first time in. Nice tap list full of what you would expect for a place this highly rated. Menu was limited but what was on it looked great as it came by to others. My flat bread was tasty. Prices were a little on the high side, but you get what you pay for. I will be back.

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!
