Pretty cool little place right next to an amazing pizza place. We ate lunch at the pizza place but they are a different business so no food rate for them. Bummer they only had 3 beers on tap all was solid. The coolest thing is you can buy a growler to go and take it to the pizza place, drink the beer and then return the empty growler for a refund.
Visited shortly after they opened on a Saturday. Dedicated parking lot that they share with a small restaurant. On my visit they had three beers on tap. All were IPAs. You could buy growlers only. If you want to try a beer, you can do that at no charge. The beers I tried were decent. I wish they had something other than pale ales, but maybe that’s just what they had on my visit. Either way, service was great, prices were good, don’t have anything else to complain about.
Basically a warehouse with a pizza restaurant attached. The brewery has a front office that serves as a cashier’s desk, tasting bar, storefront, with a restroom on the side. Clean with sounds of brewery throughout. Only issue was that it was quite warm as there was no A/C. Possibly due to being connected to the brewery.
Staff is helpful and most beer did not have limits at the time.
Stopped here after hitting the Shelburne Museum which is basically a couple blocks away on the same street.
This is kind of an interesting setup. There is the brewery and tasting room and a pizza place in the same building. The racket here is to buy some cans or a growler from Fiddlehead to drink with your pizza--they don’t sell any beer in the pizza place itself. We just grabbed some lunch first as we were quite hungry and then tried some beers afterward. Pizza is solid, by the way.
There is a small tasting bar where you can do a tasting, which is free. They had three draft beers on when I visited and cans of Mastermind were also available. Kind of expensive at $13 for a four pack of 12 oz cans, since that’s pretty much the going rate for the pint cans. The Mastermind and their normal IPA were pretty good and the other two beers weren’t as good. Cheap prices on the growler fills as well.
Seeing as you can’t really do much here other than sample a couple beers and then get beers to go, I can’t really recommend making a big effort to get here. But, the beers are decent and you may already be in the area.
Three or four visits from 2013-15. I moved away from Vermont just as this place was getting going, and lots of others in the area were a-borning; luckily I moved to a place with a brewing industry just as happening, so I don’t feel too sorry for myself. Still, this laid-back, simple place is something I’d wish to see more of anyplace. First time I went they only had their (very nice and eminently drinkable) IPA; later I tried a Rye, a Belgian Wit, and a IIPA. Very cool employees, GREAT pizza next door; the only real suggestion I’d make to really improve the experience (apart from the obvious: more beers available at any given time) is for them to put some more effort into their outdoor seating area - enlarge it and maybe screen it off somewhat from the (very close) highway. I look forward to another visit this fall (hopefully).
This was a little disappointing. The ambiance is pretty awesome. You can see the guys working on the brewing, and it’s attached to a pizza joint. The girl behind the bar was awesome. Very knowledgable and you could tell she had a passion for the beer. We didn’t eat, though the pizza smelled pretty awesome. The beers we got to try were free samples which was pretty great. Only samples and to-go growlers and howlers. The pricing was very reasonable for both of those, but we opted not to buy. Overall this place is pretty good. I was hoping that we’d be able to have a few beers and get some cans, but it wasn’t in the cards. I hope they expand out to their own brew pub soon!
Very small friendly setup attached to a wood fire pizza restaurant and across the street from a winery. Free samples of their flagship ipa and two other beers that change often, usually one-offs, I believe. Growlers are only $3 to purchase and $6 to fill. Excellent service. If you are in the area Fiddlehead is a must for any beer enthusiast. Great brews and and an easy quick stop.
Visited on a particularly busy Thursday night (there was a Decemberists concert in Shelburne). Visited the growler filling room only but not hte restaurant. They have this deal where the restaurant is actually BYOB so you get a growler from the brewery and then just walk across to enjoy it with a meal. I got some growlers, the girls working at the bar were very enthusiastic, kind and helpful, they give out samples of everything (in my case only 2 beers on draft). The growlers are amongst the cheapest I’ve seen and their IPAs here are bomb. They have some cool merch as well that’s worth checking out. Recommended stop.
