breweries, wineries & spirits

According to Ben Franklin, "Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." According to the 2010 U.S. census, there were 625,797 residents of Vermont. At that same time, there were 21 breweries in operation in Vermont, making Vermont the state with the highest # of breweries per capita. With brew-pubs, microbreweries, craft brewers specializing in one beer at a time, and  larger regional breweries, there is a lot of beer being produced and consumed in Vermont. 

Not a beer fan? The Vermont Grape and Wine Council has compiled a Passport Map and Directory outlining the participating wineries in their Tasting Room Passport Program. There are 21 participating wineries with 25 locations. On this map you will find mead (honey wine), fruit & grape wines, and ice ciders! 

Vermont Distillery Tours will take you all over the state. Vermont distillery tours, craft distillery tours and farm distillery tours are guaranteed to entertain and educate. Vermont Distillery tours usually include the tour, distillery tastings and opportunities to purchase the spirits you just tasted.


hill farmstead brewery

Hill Farmstead Brewery is the culmination of many years of travel and insight—of experience and education—of friendships and explorations. The brewery is the revival and continuation of 220 years of Hill heritage and hand crafted history in North Greensboro, Vermont. Its logo is retrieved from a sign that once hung in Aaron Hill's (our great(x3) grandfather) tavern, just up the hill, in the early 1800s.

Otter creek brewing co.

Vermont's Otter Creek Brewing Company has been hitting, hopping and dosing brews with creativity since acid-wash jeans were hip. Following the addition of a state-of-the-art brew house and more canning capacity, the OCB Crew is continuing down the path of innovation, throwing a bit of kind into the kettle whenever possible. OCB's hop-soaked ales and lagers are available throughout the Northeast and mid-Atlantic regions.


lost nation brewing

After years honing our skills in the brewing and process industry, we set forth to create a brewery with a simple mission; to produce honest beer. The result is a 7,000bbl brewery located in Northern Vermont that is capable of brewing any style of ales and lagers. The brewery takes inspiration from lesser known European beer styles, along with local Vermont life to guide our brews. The attention to detail, modern equipment, and love for beer help produce truly authentic, unique beers.

switchback brewing co.

Switchback Ale was developed as a flavor concept, not adhering to any style guidelines. Using only traditional ingredients, Switchback Ale is an unfiltered, reddish-amber ale which is particularly well-balanced, allowing for complexity of flavor coupled with an unusually smooth and refreshing character. Five different malts, select hop varieties, and our own specially cultivated yeast create an ale which leads with hop fl¬avors and a subtle impression of fruit (our yeast’s contribution), followed by a palate pleasing malty finish.

All Switchback beers are brewed in Burlington, Vermont and are carbonated during fermentation by the yeast itself resulting in a 100% naturally conditioned beer. After aging, we simply move the beer to the keg or bottle, leaving it unfiltered for the freshest, fullest, most natural flavor possible.

Switchback Brewing Co. is 100% employee owned.
