Good local brew house near Middlebury. We had a taster flight and some pretzel bites - we really enjoyed all the beers and the tasting notes provided are really helpful. Staff were warm and welcoming, only downside is that it's outside of the town centre so someone had to drive!

My wife and I stopped in to Otter Creek Brewing in November of 2013. This place 'Rocks'! Great food, great beverages, and great service! If you are a 'Lover of Libations' you must stop here for at least an hour or two. Yummy!!!

Enjoyed a wonderful lunch there October 13. Excellent beer selections, made better by THE BEST wings I have ever had! Nicely done - thanks!

We stopped in to try all the beer and had a few items to eat as well. The local panini and the pulled pork sandwich were great. Cheddar soup was a bit watery and lacked in taste. Our favorite out of all of the beer selections was the pumpkin ale!

This is a great place to visit since it is right on the route of 5 other breweries / wineries to try. Price was $7 I think to sample but you got to choose from a bunch of different beers from Wolavers, The Shed, Otter Creek so that added some variety.

We stopped at Otter Creek over the weekend during a trip to Vermont. We immediately ordered two beer flights and some smoked buffalo wings. The beer was really good and the wings were fantastic (if you like smoked buffalo wings). Staff were friendly and professional. It is not your typical tasting room, and this is not necessarily a bad thing.... More

Even though the beer is very good, not really worth the trip unless you are near town. The main reason for our visit was tour and tasting. They had neither. We should have gone elsewhere.

Otter Creek actually bottles three brands – Otter Creek, Shed and Wolaver’s organic beer. I love the way this place is designed – you can watch the whole bottling process while you sit at the bar a sip a beer. Lots of locals come here for lunch – they have good sandwiches. Otter Creek is now owned by Long Trail.... More

Unfortunately, during my last visit to Otter Creek Brewery I was informed that they only fill their own branded growlers. I was told by the woman behind the counter that this is due to the fact that Otter Creek wants to make sure the growlers are clean before filling them. I assured the staff that my double walled stainless steel... More

Hi Jessica, we’re sorry to read this and can understand your frustration. While we wish we were able to fill all types of growlers, we are mandated by Vermont state law and the Department of Liquor Control from doing so. In order to meet state sanitation guidelines, we're required to only fill our own, cleaned and sanitized growlers. Otter Creek... More

We have had their beer before so we decided to visit the brewery. The atmosphere was bright and cheery. The beer was very good and reasonably priced. We also ordered their beer pretzels which were served warm and fresh with mustard. My husband also ordered their chili which was served with toasted sourdough bread and was perfect in taste and...
