This is a really old school place. Dark and dated interior, definitely a local pub feel to it. Kind of a neat oval shaped bar, though.
Probably hasnít been much updating to the beer menu or recipes here in a long time, and you can kind of tell. Theyíre making the same old school brewpub beers that have been around forever, and theyíre not really even that great. The IPA, for instance, was undrinkable. They do at least have a special beer or two on at a time, it seems. Otherwise youíre drinking Hefeweizen, amber ale, dry stout, pale ale, etc.
Service was fine and friendly. And unlike Juniper, which we had just had a drink at, this place is cheap. Flights are $1.25 each and pints are $6. I donít think Iíd really try to come back here.
Large restaurant/brewpub in central Burlington. Their house brews are fairly basic, if not boring. Beer flight available. Pub-style food is decently priced but quality is pretty average. Service was a bit rude and not very helpful.Average place in many ways, unimpressed.
Stopped in for a couple beers and dinner while in Burlington. The bar had a darker, older feel, and was pretty nice and cozy on a cold night, along with sports on TV and plenty of tables to eat. The service was perfectly efficient and effective, and handled all of our requests smoothly. They had a pretty good selection of house beers, with a fairly wide range of types and styles. We ordered fairly standard bar food and it was good, but nothing exceptional. The prices were good, and it was a very positive experience overall with decent beer.
Visited 7-14. Was pretty dark inside and not too busy. Seems quite outdated and in need of some TLC and cleaning. Service was pretty good, but it did take about 10 to 15 minutes to get beers at the bar. There was something wrong with their tap system and the beer was very warm. It kept foaming and foaming, which is why it took so long. It was a watermelon wheat, so luckily it being luke warm wasnít terrible. Ok selection, but not the greatest. I didnít eat there, but a few people around us had food. Fish fry looked decent. Value was pretty good, the beers were reasonably priced. Donít think Iíd go back without some updating to the place though.
Great location right in the middle of town and across the street from Zero Gravity Flatbread. They were out of a few beers on my visit and I only had time to try a couple of them. Neither was exciting, but both were decent. Feels this place could use a little updating. Theyíve been around for 25ish years, and Iím sure even 10 years ago I would have been a lot more excited by this place, but with the way craft beer has developed in that time and the number of new places that have opened in the Burlington area, it seems like they havenít quite been able to keep up.
Nice low key place, I was a little surprised for a Friday night that it wasnít as "happening" as I had thought it was going to be. Styles seem to range from English to American. I wasnít that hungry so all I had was some buffalo chicken fingers which were petty good. Iíll go back.
Thereís much history surrounding this pub and brewery so in that regards itís a must visit when in Burlington. Centrally located with outside patio seating in what appears to look like an office block from the outside. It was a warm day out and outside was full so grabbed a seat at the bar. The beers were pretty average across the range. The bartender was friendly enough. I didnít hang around here long as it was a little too dark and gloomy in here.
Depending on time of day, you can easily find a seat at the bar. Great drink specials and weekly "experimental" small batch brews. Growlers, pints, 12oz, and 8oz pours available. Food is American-pub fare with excellent burgers (same meat used by Farmhouse Tap & Grill, but a few $$ less). Iíve always had good bar service. Food is served somewhat fast.
