    55555 by Theodore


  • Ranu R.Incredible food. Don't miss the specials like chicken and waffles or the pulled pork sandwich. Poutine was to die for and I could have drank the bottle rocket hot sauce (instead I took home a bottle!)

    55555 by Ranu R.


  • Amy J.Stop out front for the BBQ or at the cannery in the back for tacos but enjoy the beer either way.

    55555 by Amy J.

  • Steve JReally good food and a great beer menu

    55555 by Steve J


  • Hideki K.Fluffy Clouds pale ale was delicious, as were the Juan's Steak Salad & Chicharrons (pork rind). Definitely pick up the "Games to Play with your Pussy" book for some nice light reading while dining.

    55555 by Earl B.


  • Jay S.Very small portions, you better order 2 sandwiches if you want to fill up.

    33333 by Jay S.


  • Jake S.The pulled pork was juicy, the sauce selection (BACON BBQ?!) was great, but the real key to this sandwich was the buttered, toasted bun, which provided great crunch and flavor.

    55555 by Jake S.

  • Michael ABrisket sandwich with duck fried fries!

    55555 by Michael A


  • FoodiesprGreat local Vermont beers. Go for the Heady Topper and Hill Farmstead just voted #1 brewery in the world. For food try the Habanero Wings and the Hosier Daddy (fried pork loin sandwich).

    55555 by Foodiespr


  • Greg GAmazing beers on tap and fantastic food. I don't think you can go wrong with anything. Brisket sandwich with duckfat fries was fantastic.

    55555 by Greg G


  • Rebecca M.Go early, sit at the bar and dream of the thirty cocktails you'd like to order and order duck fat fries instead because there's no "legal limit" for those.

    55555 by Rebecca M.


  • Jason AWorth the wait, great atmosphere and food

    55555 by Jason A

    55555 by Nate B.

    55555 by Ashley

    55555 by Nathan G.

  • Luc ChouinardAwesome food with excellent beers !!!

    55555 by Luc Chouinard


  • Scott B.Got the brisket with baked breaks and brussel sprouts. Brisket was fatty, BBQ sauce was great, as we're the sides. I would get the burger instead if I had a do-over

    33333 by Scott B.

    55555 by Brian S.

    22222 by Nancy W.


  • Bill M.A small gem with good food and a nice beer selection.

    55555 by Bill M.


  • JourdanI highly recommend the Craft Mac 'n Cheese. Maybe the best I've ever had. The hush puppies were also delicious, and OH, the roasted Brussels sprouts. Probably anything here would be great, I imagine.

    55555 by Jourdan


  • Eric D L.The Bavarian pretzel knots are worth it for the Heady Topper mustard alone!

    55555 by Eric D L.


  • Ted B.One of only two places in VT (besides the brewery itself) that has Heady Topper on tap. They also offer half-pours of all of their draft beers.

    55555 by Ted B.

  • Allen RGet the G-L-T. Done.

    22222 by Allen R


  • Nicholas S.Excellent service! On a menu dominated by delicious pork, don't overlook the grass fed beef burger on a buttery, lightly toasted bun. Also, I love the half pints - great for variety (or moderation).

    55555 by Nicholas S.


  • Kelly S.Service is friendly and the food is delicious. Don't overlook the bottle list, it's a well curated trip around the world.

    55555 by Kelly S.

    55555 by Lars L.
