ok, so the place is tiny. There's a little bar and a merchandise area. I dont think more than a dozen people can fit comfortably inside. though they try to. Often the line extends out into the hallway or outside the facility. The last couple times i was there were both this past month...getting xmas gifts for out of state... More

Place is small with only really 2 beers on tap. The day I stopped in they had Fiddlehead IPA and Overstable Double IPA on tap. Both are good beers. I got a taster of each and checked out the souvenirs they have available. Place is their production line so most people stopping in were getting their growlers filled. There is... More

If your lucky enough to be there when Second Fiddle is on tap or in cans it's well worth the visit. Take your beer next door for some great pizza.

The beer was good but this isn't like a place you can sit and enjoy trying their beers . The woman working was knowledgeable. We had gone to many other breweries that had a more inviting atmosphere to enjoy their beers . This is more like a beer store.

A fun stop on our road trip, and a highly recommended place from locals. The beer was great, the guy at the counter was very friendly and helpful. Would recommend stopping in, doing some tastings, and grabbing some beer to take home and enjoy!

Just be aware: When you visit this place, you will probably stand around waiting in line behind a bunch of people with growlers to refill. When you finally get to the bar, there will only be two beers to try, and the person behind the bar will be more interested in filling those growlers than giving you any attention. That's... More

My girlfriend and I stopped in after visiting Shelburne Vineyards and the place was packed before noon. The bartender didn't even acknowledge us and ask people to make some room, which was probably a good thing since they only had IPAs on tap. As non-IPA fans, we decided to go elsewhere for Vermont beers.

This is most likely the best place to get a pizza or a salad, the food is excellent, the atmosphere great , the beer high quality and the service great.

Tiny tasting area, where they let you taste whatever two brews are posted on the board. They will refill any growler that you have on hand with their beer and price is reasonable. It's conveniently located across the street from Shelburne Vineyards!
