I donít go here that often as it is usually quite crowded. A combination of decent food along with a good selection of quality brewed beers makes this a popular spot in busy downtown Burlington

Found this place reasonably crowded for dinner on a Thursday. Sat at the murky, kinda creepy-feeling bar. They didnít have the Vermont cheese plate we wanted (itís Vermont!), and the beers and service was less than we expected ... so we went over to Zero Gravity for a much better experience.

This place proudly and prominently letís you know its Vermontís oldest craft brewery. Thatís great, but dudes you need to come into this decade or youíre going to get shut down. This place is old, its as dirty as if it hasnít been cleaned since it opened. The menuís were sticky and gross. They had quite a few tickets but of the 6 beers I tried, 1 was passable the rest were not worth drinking. Maybe they want to cater to the college crowd? This is skip, donít bother.

It looks like an office building on the outside, but itís a nice oldschool style pub on the inside. Actually, itís a bit too dark, but otherwise itís very nice on the eyes.
Pretty large tap selection of their own beers. We got a flight of them all. Large enough pours so that we could each have some and really taste it. The collab Scotch ale they did with Dieu Du Ciel was fantastice. Everything else was somewhere between "solid" and very good. Of the dozen samples I think there was only one I didnít like.
Food was nice. Though my burger was advertised as 1/3 pound looked way smaller than that. Prices were fine.
Iíve really no complaints at all. Definitely a good place to stop for dinner or lunch if youíre in town.

Had dinner here with two families of 4 kids. Service was iffy, so was the food. Beer flights were alright. According to wife, no way in hell we are going back.

When I visited: Late May 2013.
What I had: Grand Slam Baseball Ale, Karlswalde Russian Imperial Stout, and Bombay Grab IPA on tap, several glasses of Caí del Sarto Pinot Grigio for my girl.
What I liked: Intimate pub atmosphere, super friendly bartender, solid range of styles on offer, beers are average to good in quality, cheap prices ($3.50-$4.50 pints), had a nice chat with one of the patrons.
What I disliked: None of the beers blew me away, no bottles or guest taps from what I could tell, server was pleasant but didnít seem to know much about the beers.
Would I go back? Yes. This place is too much fun to pass up. Itís not a beer geek haven, per se, but itís certainly worth a visit if you find yourself in Burlington.
Overall Rating: 80

Stopped in for lunch and some beer. Was overly crowded. Had a six beer flight. Was not impressed. Most of the beers I tried were way under carbonated and average. Was expecting way more from the hype. I'm sure this place was great in its prime, but was one of my least favorite stops on my trip. Service was good, food ok, and beer was eh.

Greg Noonan est líun des pŤres de la biŤre de micro-brasserie. Ici cíest son temple, plus prŤs díun sports bar par contre. Les biŤres sont bonnes mais pas excellente et la bouffe est grasse. Un endroit ŗ ne pas manquer, un classique.

Stopped in late afternoon on a Thursday, place was pretty quiet. I like the old pub look and feel. Staff was attentive and nice enough. Decent selection of their beers on tap. None of the beer we had was outstanding, but none of it was bad either. Wouldnít have to twist my arm to go back, but there a lots of better beer options in the area.

Stopped in for lunch before heading to the airport; sat in the bar. Not very busy on a Friday afternoon. Had about a dozen beers on tap, including 2 "experimental" brews. Great prices ranging from full pours for $5, to 3 oz tasters for $1. Great service as well - very friendly, helpful, and somewhat knowledgeable. Food was so so. Beers, unfortunately, were also so so, but all in all an interesting place.
