This place embodies the eccentric, psychedelic, unconventional spirit of Vermont and beer brewing at its' curious and fantastic finest. Take a tour of the brewery or sample excellent beer under the dim kaleidoscope lights of the bar. And by the way....dogs are welcome in the Artifactory. The gift shop has a wide variety of items for purchase and don't forget... More

We had been looking forward to our visit for a long time. We love Magic Hat #9, we should probably own stock :). The free tour is great. They were not producing the day we were there, but it was still great to see. We were able to sample 4 beers. There is a lot of great merchandise as well.... More

Free tour, self guided. There's a short, fun video and lots of weird things to see along the way. The factory part is basically just a big window overlooking the action with some signs hanging above certain things to tell you what they are. You also get tickets to sample any four beers they have on tap at the time... More

Beer is good, seemed like we were being rushed out. We got to taste four beers for free. A lot of great merchandise.

Took my first VT Micro Brewery Tour this past week at Magic Hat. Have been drinking their beer forever, thought it would be time to visit the brewery. Great free tour that starts and ends in same place. It's like going in to a night club, they have a Mardi Gras theme going on right now. Tour lasts 30 minutes.... More

Make sure to get your free beer samples and go on their tour. The tour is great and informative. Their gift shop is unique but their selection is not skimpy!

Don't get me wrong, Magic Hat brews delicious beer, but our visit to this brewery was a bit lackluster. The atmosphere of the gift shop is really unique, and their selection of branded merchandise is great. The tour was much shorter than others I have been on in the past, and they don't actually bring you into the brewery itself,... More
