  • Stopped by on a trek toward upstate and were thrilled that we did. One of us enjoyed the whiskey tasting while the other tried their mead selection - both were exceptionally tasty. We left with maple bourbon, maple rye, and traditional mead (multiple bottles of each). The room was comfortable, assistance very helpful, and the shuffleboard table was a hit! Well worth a stop!
  • My partner and I stopped here during an overnight in Brattleboro. It's a minimalistically repurposed warehouse with a nice bar and some games. The bartenders were very friendly and knowledgeable. I liked the relaxed, quiet atmosphere -- we did go when it was close to closing for the night, so I'm not sure if it's always like that. We tried a flight of liquors (coffee liquor, maple liquor, maple bourbon, and gin). The coffee liquor and maple liquors were so nice we ended up buying a 375mL bottle of each. I also had a can of their Stowe Cider, which was less impressive. They do give you free pretzels, but that's the only food they serve. Still, we weren't planning on staying long, so I was happy to at least have something to snack on while drinking.
