Great little micro brewery. Nice sample and you could see and watch the whole production line. They are very proud of their uber hoppy beer :)

They always have plenty of Heady Topper to taste but not always any to buy. Visit on Friday, sit in there front yard and enjoy this exquisite beer.

My wife and I did a little brewery tour around the state of Vermont. We stopped here for a quick taste and a look at the brewery. We weren't big fans of the beer, but apparently a lot of people think it's amazing. The brewery...More
