Pizza place that also serves a ton of Zero Gravity beers. Serves as the brewpub location, it seems.
Cool place. Brick building with a nice big wooden bar and plenty of dining room seating as well. Decently crowded on a Friday night, but we were able to find a couple of seats at the bar for dinner and some beers. Theyíre known for their pizzas here, so we ordered one of those. They will do half and half of two different kinds, which is nice since the better half and I often want to get different things.
Like a few other places in town, they donít do flights--just half and full pours. I find this annoying, but whatever. The two of us shared a few things. Beer quality was, in general, pretty good. Conehead was probably my favorite of the beers that I tried.
Service was friendly enough, but things kind of took awhile here, particularly as it pertains to the kitchen/getting the food out. The server admitted to forgetting to putting in the salad that we ordered, which was kind of annoying and just the first of a few times that happened to us on the trip...maybe people in northern New England donít get salad with their pizzas?
Anyway, pretty cool spot. Decent food, decent beers. Worth a stop, particularly with its central location.
Definitely worthy of a few visits. I was impressed with the overall beer quality across a solid range of styles with the Belgians particularly fun and tasty brews. Keep in mind they have about 20 house brews. Thereís also one cask offering. As mentioned, the flatbreads are delicious. The bartenders are friendly and chatty. Thereís outside seating for the warmer days. A great spot.
Dinner stop after the beer tour of Vermont. Standard brewpub atmosphere, kind of pretentious service - they would not seat us until everyone in our party was there AND we all promised to order food. Pizza was indeed good, but I was not overwhelmed with the two beers I tried.
This is a cozy, packed (even on Thursday) and authentic wood-fired pizza place (pizza was A+) that also boasts a sturdy list of quality in-house beers. Burlingtonís #1 beer destination in my book. (Brewery #674).
The beer is not bad, decent on the zero gravity house brand. The attrction tonight was a special Magic Hat night, yet only one special Magic Hat was on, the Chaotic Chemistry. Taps are good and so that alone attracts a more mature portion of the crowd. Large bar area and good sized restaurant. Good it was open, as it was closed for reno or whatever on my previous trip here two years ago. Good experienced waitstaff who even knew a bit about the beers.
Popular lunch (or dinner for that matter, but it has a midday feeling) spot. Delicious pizza specialties, the ingredients smell a lot, so you may want to have a table not as close to the brick and wood pizza oven as we did. Interesting lager styles, I expected more, but itís mostly a question of personal preferences, I tend to prefer more attenuated stuff. Fun outsider beers selection by Vermontís standards (dupont on tap for instance)
We visited on a Sunday afternoon in Autumn. We were just here for drinks, so sat in the small bar area on the right hand side as you enter. They had about 12ish house-brewed beers on offer during our visit. I thought the quality of the beers were above average in general, with the IPAs being the best of the bunch. Saying that they didnít blow me away and there are much better beers in Burlington to be drinking. Service was fine and prices seemed all right. A decent place overall, but not the most exciting beer available in town.
Literally stumbled across this place while walking around the farmerís market (to those not from Burlington...they have one really large and great farmerís market here). I went in and on the bartenderís recommendation had the house specialty...flatbread pizza. It was very good but not as good as the "Flatbread Company" (no "American" in the name) in eastern New England. The Zero Gravity beers were very good. I would not say great...but very good with a couple of standouts. For me this place is a little overated on RateBeer. I think The Farmhouse Tap & Grill is much better...but any craftbeer trip to Burlington should include a visit to both so you can decide for yourself. I do recommend this place in spite of my rating the other a bit higher.
Stopped in for dinner and drinks during the Burlington Jazz festival. A large wooden interior and nice large bar that stayed surprisingly quiet despite how busy it was. Beers were surprisingly good with a number of guest taps and bottles. Food was good but not out of this world and the prices were fine.
In all seriousness, one of, if not the only restaurant and brewery Vermont I do not like. The ambiance feels very chain like, just doesnít fit. Service is ok, but to busy to be personable. The pizza sounds and looks amazing, but falls short. The crust is super crispy but lacks flavor. There is very little sauce, and the whole thing is super dry. Their fennel sausage is mouthwatering. The drinks focus on Zero Gravity, which throws back to older styles of beer like a vienna lager, gose, gruit etc. They are ok, and true to style but just so boring. I get how some may find this refreshing in a hop overload in Vermont, but the beers just arenít that good.
This is a miss for me.
