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.

Excellent taproom. Spent a lovely Saturday afternoon here after strolling around Montpelier. Interesting and new beers I hadn’t tried from Lawson’s, Hill Farmstead and Lost Nation. It was a great tap selection for sure. The bartender was friendly with everyone and I overhead him happily giving suggestions of other places to check out to a couple of beer tourists. There’s a dining room next door if looking for a meal in a relaxed environment. A must visit.

An outstanding bar and restaurant. The beer range is fantastic, with a strong emphasis on local breweries; Hill Farmstead, Lawson’s Finest Liquids, The Alchemist, Lost Nation, et al are commonly found on tap. There is also a small but well-chosen bottle list. The food options are quite good as well, all tasty and nicely prepared. Good service. The value here is decent. Given the quality of beer, food and service, it is absolutely going out of your way to visit.

Stopped in on the way back from the HF excursion. Nice little space with a fairly large bar separated from a smallish dining area by a wall. Pretty standard bar ambiance. Large removable chalk boards list the available taps. Another board at the back of the bar lists available bottles, which are not many in number, but carefully selected for impact. A more geographically distributed taplist than many places here, but they still had the obligatory vermont beers, including HF Everett and Edward. Staff was friendly and helpful. Did not try the food.

We visited Three Penny Taproom multiple times on our visit to Montpelier. It feels like quality beer can be found in pretty much every café/restaurant/bar in town, but this is the main beer destination and a must-visit. We frequented during the day and in the evening on a Monday and even then they have a steady stream of drinkers. We sat at the bar area with a mix of locals and beer tourists. They have 24 taps of some of the best beer in the world – Hill Farmstead, Lawson’s, Grassroots, Allagash etc on offer. Couple that with a plentiful supply of Alchemist cans and you have a selection that is hard to beat. We were only too happy to sit here and sip back HF… Do yourself a favour and go visit.

This place was hopping when we arrived. Local focused draft list, light on the HF but had double sunshine and lots of other beers I’d never even heard of. They all were great, plus a superb reasonably prices bottle list. Has the beer bar feel, more so than any other place in Vermont. A place I’m used to and like, I’d be back for sure. The food menu looked great, wish I had eaten there.

Looked like an old dinner, with micra paneling, swivle chairs at the bar, and checkered pattern on floor. 16 taps availble, and around 20 bottles, a bit on the pricey side. Limited tapa menu (cheese platters, salami, olives). A very nice and homey place, needed in Vermonts capital.

2013-04-26. Nice little spot in a quaint little strip of the city. We managed to get street parking a short walk away despite it being quite busy at the time. We walked into a VERY busy bar side around 5:30 on a Friday night and were happy to find seats in the quieter dining area. Beer selection was pretty good with a selection of styles and breweries. I was driving so I opted for a root beer and stole some of Mabel’s flight, which were a bit disappointing but still stuff we were glad to try. I got the burger which seemed a bit small when it arrived but after one bite I had no complaints. Delicious! Mabel’s stew was also excellent. Finished dinner with some Old Rasputin brownies which were delicious. A serving of three brownies is a bit much though!

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.
