When it comes to both food and drink, especially beer, you can always sense a difference when something is made with passion. When attention to detail, persistence to create newer and better products, and an unwillingness to quit come together, you can get a pretty awesome outcome. This is definitely the case with the dedicated people behind the scenes at Otter Creek Brewing Co. in Middlebury, VT.
Whether you are out for an evening with your friends, a special night with a loved one or on happy hour after work, this local brew house is a top-notch place to kick back and relax. It is just a little outside of town center and this place is comfortable, quaint and full of fun. There is a spectacular selection of beers and the staff is extremely helpful with giving you all the information you need to choose from the options they offer. They have been making award-winning craft beers for over 20 years and now distribute their handcrafted brews to 15 states throughout the East Coast – that is a big deal! Their menu is full of fantastic choices all made with fresh Vermont ingredients and they also have a great focus on sustainability and donate their spent hops and yeast to local farmers for use as an alternative fertilizer.
You will also want to check out their Pilot Brew Series, where they made limited small batches and allow their creativity to soar. Stop in every Tuesday at 11am to sample these limited brews.
