Hill Farmstead / Grassroots at The Farmhouse Tap & Grill


Just wanted to send a huge shoutout to the folks at Farmhouse Tap and Grill for putting together such a great Hill Farmstead/Grassroots event last week. The crowds were well managed, the tap list was amazing (I’m always looking for an excuse to drink vintage Hill Farmstead, especially on draft, without dipping into my cellar) and the food selection was top notch as always (that lamb burger!!!).

Guild Fine Meats | Burlington, VT


Got the chance to grab lunch up at Guild Fine Meats on one of my monthly trips up to Vermont. I’ve been very impressed with The Farmhouse Tap & Grill in the past so I was excited to check out another one of The Farmhouse Group’s restaurants.

Lunch at Lost Nation Brewery | Morristown, VT


After one of my last beer runs up to Hill Farmstead I was looking for someplace new to hit for eats. Lost Nation is located just about halfway in between Greensboro and Waterbury, and after having their Gose several times on tap at many of the local Vermont bars and eateries it was a no brainer to make this one of my stops.

Vermont Camping: July 2013 Edition

Vermont Balloon and Craft Festival

Just a short couple of days in Vermont on our last trip but we made the most of it while we could. We stayed at Elise’s favorite state park, Mount Philo, again and lucked out with the weather the whole weekend.

Vermont Beer and Food Day Trip

My buddy Richard (of Fourteen Stone fame) has never really done Vermont before so with Elaborative One and Prolegomena still on shelves and the lottery for the Festival of Farmhouse Ales live at Hill Farmstead I figured it was a great opportunity to give him the grand tour (or as much as we could cover in the day) of the Green Mountain State. Follow us along, won’t you?

Lunch at Worthy Burger

Worthy Burger
The Worthy Burger topped with egg, caramelized onions, bacon and bleu cheese.

Worthy Burger, located in a old freight house alongside the railroad tracks in South Royalton, VT has been on my radar for awhile now. The premise behind owners Dave Brodrick of Blind Tiger fame (which has a cult-like following in the craft beer community) Jason Merrill and Kurt Lessard’s business is simple: pair wood fire grilled grass fed burgers with locally source Vermont ingredients and homemade condiments, with a side of beef tallow fries all for a reasonable price. Top that off with a great selection of craft beer from Lawson’s Finest Liquids, Hill Farmstead and other Vermont and New England breweries and you have a sure winner on your hands.
