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.

Stopped in for a couple beers shortly after they opened on a Saturday. Excellent taplist, decent bottle list. They were tapping a double dry hopped cask of Lawson’s Double Sunshine. Could have spent hours and lots of money here.

When I visited: Late May 2013. What I had: Sixpoint Apollo Wheat, Ballast Point Yellowtail Pale Ale, Dieu du Ciel! Pénombre 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, didn’t blow me away. Would I go back? Yes. Despite its shortcomings this is still a great beer bar and resto. Overall Rating: 82

This is perhaps the best beer joint I have ever been to though I should probably say "gastropub". Excellent selection of local brews and and food (VT cheese!) make this a must visit if in the area.

This place was hopping when we arrived. Local focused draft list, light on the HF but had double sunshine and lots of other beers I’d 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 I’m used to and like, I’d be back for sure. The food menu looked great, wish I had eaten there.
