Burlington, Vt is a qauint little town, with a pretty decent beer scene. We have 3 brewpubs worth visiting in the immediate area.

The first being the VT Pub and Brewery, on St. Paul & College St., owned and operated by Greg Noonan, of various brewing fame. Great beer, great atmosphere, great pub grub (best french dip I've ever had!) And if greg's around, he's genreally more than willing to show off his brewhouse...

The Three Needs, on College St., is a nice little hippie/townie pub that ties for my regular. No food, but great beer, including their signature Chocolate Thunder Porter. They've gone through 3 brewers since I've been going there. JT went on to brew for Shipyard, Glen still owns the place, and Jeremy if the current. He's been on a great Belgien kick lately, makes for nice drinking...

Last, but certainly not least, there's American Flatbread's Burlington Hearth.
In addition to having a great food menu, this is the beer-lover's bar. With over 50 bottled selections from all over the world, plus over 20 taps, including their own, house brewed, zero-gravity beer, and 3 hand pulled casks, this is where I go to geek out about beer. Paul is also a hell of a brewer, coming up with new selections every week or so.

Don't forget to mention The Alchemist about 30 minutes away. They have the best beer I've ever had in VT. I could seriously eat American Flatbread every single day. I love the Burlington area!

My apologies for forgetting the Alchemist (what was I thinking????), and since we're mentioning other areas, I'll include the Shed in Waterbury, right outside of Stowe, which is an awesome place with great food and great beer, and the Bobcat Cafe in Bristol, which, unfortunately, not many people know is a brewpub. They've got an altbier there that is some of the best I've had.

I'm in Shelburne right now! I'm just up here for a few days taking the Burlington FD test, but I'm planning on moving to Burlington by the end of this year. I've been to VT Pub and Brewery, but I think I'll go there again today. I'm also going to check out the Vermont Homebrew Store. Sounds like a cool place!

BeerNutz on the mojo channel went there...it seemed like a cool town. BeerNutz is a good show, but the hosts are pretty lame...
