Tourist favorite! Beer & tavern food located on the banks of the Ottauquechee River. The brewery and brew pub offers a seasonally rotating menu featuring locally-sourced ingredients and beer fresh from the source. They have more than a dozen beers on tap including our year-round staples, seasonal selections and limited releases. They feature super-limited, small batch brews from their Farmhouse Ales series exclusively available in the pub. Note: Bustling place, depending on the season there can be a long wait for a table. They serve dinner but only if you are in the door prior to 7:00 pm. Doesn’t make my favorite list because of the limited wine options! (Can be gotten to via snowmobile if you are in the know)
