Hmmmm.....well...I parked down at Shaw’s and walked. Once there, pretty clean, and great service - fair amount of people there for a Tuesday lunch. Taps were mainly New England speckled with a nice dosing of Vermont breweries. And Rodenbach showed up on tap. My cheeseburger was really good. Value seemed somewhat reasonable for Montpelier area. But my only rhetorical question: how is this the best rated venue in Vermont? I guess the hype train has died on this place, IOW, a bit over rated. Please check out Blackback in Waterbury or Farm Tap & Grill in Burlington if any of you want top tier beer bars, just saying. Too many out of staters not knowing the rest of the VT vibe. Yes, this place this is over rated.

Visited around 1 pm on a Thursday afternoon. Street parking in downtown Montpellier. Not really an issue. We found a free apot maybe a block from the place, but would have walked further if we didn’t luck into this one. Inside is an old timy bar feel. Kind of Euro-centric. They had about 20 beers on tap with a few Hill Farmsteads and Rodenbach Alexander as the standouts. Also a focus on local VT beer. I didn’t see or ask for a bottle list, bit I assume there was one. The bartender was super friendly and knew all about the beer he had. Prices were reasonable. The only thing I didn’t like was not being able to do a flight. A half pour is as close as you can get. Regardless, the place is awesome, and definitely worth visiting when near the city.

This bar was a lot of fun, happy to finally make it here, felt like a mix of the cool vermont bars with a nyc craft bar, mix of local and not so local beers.

Separated into a bar and a restaurant. Restaurant has window a counter that faces the outside with backed stools. Dining area is mostly wooden booths without any padding. Light rock mostly playing the background. A rotating tap list of Hill Farmstead and other VT brews with one or two very rare Belgians. Rodenbacher Alexander was on tap when I went. Food is a bit pricey as is most Vermont. Small portion burgers for about $12. Pints run about $6 dollars or so some beers available in half pints.

Came in here for lunch (and sure, a couple beers) after leaving Hill Farmstead. Was not disappointed. Two areas here--more of a dining room and then the bar area. We took a couple seats at the bar. Nice old wooden bar and plenty of beer paraphernalia all over the walls.

Great service from the bartender--really friendly and personable guy, too. Good taplist with some stuff from Bissell Brothers, Hill Farmstead, Burial, and plenty of local Vermont beer and cider options. Really a nice draft menu.

The food menu was solid as well. The girlfriend got the fish and chips, which were very good. I went for the fried chicken sandwich--awesome choice. Protip: get some of their house hot sauce.

Good prices, good service, good beer, good food. Come here.

Had to swing in for some Lawson imp stout. Nice place I didn’t get any food. The prices were quite high in my opinion. I mean we are in montpellier not new York city. You would think the prices would be pretty good nope. The selection was nice but pretty much the same as other places in the area.

Stopped in for lunch and a couple of beers while in VT for a weekend. Was fairly empty after open, attentive staff, great burger at a reasonable price and the other food looked yummy too. Had a few HF beers, a Lawson, a couple nice ciders and other local stuff. Definitely worth a stop if you are anywhere in the area.

Semi busy stop. Paid parking right outside on street. Its look is a bit dated. Typical pub in center of town. Service was pleasant enough. Noting outstanding. What makes this pub special is their beer line up. As mentioned before. Frequent offerings of HF etc.

4 HF rews on tap. Lawson’s, all kinds of great stuff. Ordered a burger, seems legit. Prices are tame. This was an awesome stop and totally empty at 2pm on a Wednesday afternoon.
