  1. So looking forward to the operation. I live/work from home nearby in the Five Sisters neighborhood. PLEASE tell me you’ll have WiFi!!! Certainly believe a tasty pint inspires my creativity. 🙂

  2. Congratulations Phil! If I ever make it back to Vermont, I’ll be sure to drop in.

  3. I’m bringing my family to see you (and your beer) on Sunday Dec. 28 (2014) and want to check to be sure you’ll be open that Sunday after Christmas this year? Thanks, from Susan Craig (Nashua, NH)

  4. I just had your Queen City Porter last night at a a bar in Cambridge, it was so good I went looking for it in my package store. Can’t find it, do you sell through any stores in Massachusetts.

    Thank you!

    • Hi Ron –

      We do sell it in MA through our distributor Craft Collective (getcraft.co). Their phone number is 617-936-0308, or you can contact them at info@getcraft.co. They should be able to tell you which stores carry it. Please visit us if you are ever up in Burlington, VT!

      • I too am a fan of the porter. I’ve gone over to the Dark Side. Everyone and anyone can make a very hoppy ale, but beer is a malt beverage not to be overpowered by the bitters. Where can I buy QCPorter in Burlington? Thanks from Samuel Press shpress@burlingtontelecom.net 40 Booth Street Burlington VT 05401 802.862.1548


      • Our porter is often on tap at restaurants in Burlington, but craft beers rotate in and out so quickly it’s hard to say if a specific place has it on right now. Leunig’s often has it. You can usually get our 22 oz. bottles at Pearl St. Beverage and Beverage Warehouse. And of course, you can always come to the brewery!
