Really great bar in Montpelier. Felt a bit hipster but Iíll let it slide. Taps are always great with tons of VT and import taps. Im not going to rate the food because Ive never had it. Bartenders were attentive and quick. The place just expanded to a dining room space next door. Great spot.

Stopped in after my NECI tour had finished up at the Chefís Table. Perhaps one of the chillest barroom experiences Iíve yet encountered. The bar was large and there was only one man behind it doing tap maintenance but he was fast and prompt when I gave him requests for beers I wanted to try. He was also a big help in finding Hunger Mountain as was the server at the door of whom actually went onto Googlemaps on his iPhone for my cause. Rotating taps; wonderful beer.

Decided to stop in here for lunch before heading up to Hill Farmstead for the night. Atmosphere was very laid back, a few people at the bar watching TV and talking amongst themselves about all things beer. Quality seemed to be pretty high across the board. My beers were all served in the correct glasses and my burger was made with top notch ingredients. My bartender was awesome. We talked about beer and my impending trip to Hill Farmstead and he even gave me some stickers when I was getting ready to leave.

The selection was great. All kinds of local beers to go along with a few national offerings. Plenty of Hill Farmstead and Lawsonís on which is always welcome in my book. Since I went here for lunch I decided to go with the single burger, which I added bacon to. While my burger tasted great and was cooked to perfection I was a little dissapointed in its size. For $9 + $3! for bacon I was expecting to get my moneys worth. I can get a half pound bacon cheese burger that tastes just as good for $7 around here...Overall a really awesome beer bar that I will definitely return to when I am in the area.

Very nice place in the middle of one of the quaintest cities in america, this place is a sure stop on any beer goes travels. A nice selection of some hard to find brews. Good ambiance and a nice staff, recommend a visit. Not a huge menu of food but its worth it for the beer

What an awesome place. Stopped in with my family on the way through Vermont. I could have spent a week in this place! Lovely, albeit small, menu of great tasting food. Roughly a dozen or so beer on tap, all of them top notch beers from Vermont and beyond. Service was friendly and quick. Fed everyone plus beers for less than $60. Nothing at all bad to say about this great spot. A must visit.

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.

Great place for us beer nerds. Great selection of local VT beers that are top notch. I had some Hill Farmstead and Lawsonís Finest. The place is small with a laid back vibe. Staff is super friendly. Small food menu but what they have is good. I had a killer grilled cheese with some tasty onion soup. Three Penny is at the top of my lists of places to visit when Iím in VT.

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!
