  • Good beer. had a pleasant meal which was uninterrupted and uneventful. If you wish to have an intimate conversation, ask the waiter/ress which is a quiet place. There are a number of different 'rooms'...  more »
  • Their Maple Bourbon is very good. This distillery is well worth the stop. Close to 91, with plenty of parking. Cool bar, large space, warm, knowledgeable and inviting staff. Good selection and quality  more »

  • 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.
