Update for July 15 and 16 (Vermont Brewer's Festival Weekend)

It's Vermont Brewers Festival​ Weekend!

• Our retail shop and tasting rooms are open normal hours Friday and Saturday.

• We'll be pouring all four sessions during the festival in Burlington in tent #7, right on the water.

--Two events--


• Juniper Bar & Restaurant​ at Hotel Vermont​ will host a huge tap event in the afternoon and all evening.

Bottle Release for the Week of June 15, 2016

On Weds., June 15, we are proud to release three beers!

  • Damon

Each hand-waxed 500ml bottle is $22 with a limit of 1 per person (see bottle release policy).

Damon (1993-2004) The time spent with loved ones, now lost, seems to affect our mind and body perpetually: memories happen upon us, unsuspectingly, and bring about tears of fond remembrance. Damon was our brother—devout and patient in an age of busyness and distraction. In his honor, we crafted and conditioned this imperial stout in bourbon barrels from our favorite distilleries. We still reflect, daily, upon our Damon and his scruffy chin of grey—of his loyalty and his love. 

  • Leaves of Grass: May 2, 2016

This iteration is a dry-hopped dark Farmstead ale fermented entirely in oak. $8 each, 2 bottles per person. 375ml.

  • Florence

A fresh batch of our Farmstead wheat ale.

$10 per bottle. 750ml.

Please note the above special releases: We will ONLY accept a credit card/debit card accompanied by a valid, legal picture ID that matches the name on the credit card (this excludes generic Visa/Mastercard gift cards). Remember, this change does not apply to our ongoing releases—Anna, Florence, Dorothy, Arthur, Everett, Earl, George, etc.—with normal bottle limits, nor does it apply to growlers of draft beer, tastings and merchandise (for these, we accept cash, credit cards and gift cards). 

We will also debut in our tasting room for samples and growlers the first in a new series:

  • Self-Reliance #1 

An American pale ale generously hopped with Nelson and Motueka for a bright, citrusy and lively aroma and flavor. 


Bottle Releases for the Week of May 25, 2016

On Weds., May 25, we'll release new batches of Anna and Earl! Also in the shop: Dorothy; Works of Love: Anchorage Brewing; Convivial Suarez; and Casita Cerveceria Super Sorpresa.

Anna - 750ml, $10, 12 bottle limit per person

Our interpretation of a classic Bière de Miel, this lightly tart, elegant farmstead ale is brewed with raw Vermont wildflower honey and aged in our foudres.

Earl - 500ml, $8, 12 bottle limit per person

This stout is crafted from American malted barley, flaked oats, English roasted malts, American hops, hand-roasted coffee from our friends at Carrier Roasting, our ale yeast, and water from our well. It is unfiltered and naturally carbonated. A silhouette of coffee and malt—an embodiment of complexity and drinkability.

Updated Bottle Release Policy


Bottle Release for the Week of May 18, 2016

On Weds., May 18, we will release Works of Love: Anchorage Brewing

Each 750ml bottles is $30 with a limit of 2 bottles per person. 

When our dear friend Gabe Fletcher from Anchorage Brewing visited us last September, we brewed two beers; this is the result of the second brewday.

Brewed with malted barley, organic oats, wheat and organic buckwheat, this beer was fermented in oak foudres, aged in wine barrels and dry-hopped with Mandarina Bavaria hops.
