I'm an IPA guy - and they had 4 of their own on tap. Liked them all and loved Samson! Nice small homey atmosphere. Go bag a brewery!

Great place to drink hand crafted beer. The locals are some of the friendliest people in the world. My wife and I had a heat time and bought a bunch of O'Neill's beer to take home. Hope to get back there soon.

Two friends and I stopped in on the recommendation of a local store clerk. The place had lots of Vermont cheerfulness and hospitality but warm flat beer. Each of us tried something different but none of them were any good.

I liked it in here as there was a really good feel to the place. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable, food was good and the ale was plentiful. What more can a man ask for? Well worth a visit.

Stopped in on a warm September day. the bar had no air conditioning. windows and doors were opened. There were tons of flies and Fruit flies. The beers tasted great, but you had to swat the bugs away to keep them out of you drink....More

First off, this is really a brewery, and more a typical brewery not something made as a tourist spot. That being said the beer is stellar, and soooo affordable. You can get $3 half pints of almost everything they have on tap. Most pints are...More
