Magic Hat has a great facility to visit. There is a large retail store and tasting bar where you can try four free samples. The free tour was informative and not too long, which was nice. You watched a short movie and then were able to see where it is made. The vibe there was just as you would expect... More

I really liked visiting Magic Hat. Their tasting room and bar is large and is combined nicely with the retail store. There are a ton of cool Magic Hat items to check out and buy. You get to try four different beers for free as well as partake in a free guided or self guided tour. It is easy to... More

My boyfriend and I stopped here on our drive back from Stowe, VT. It is a very fun place to stop in for a quick tasting. They give you 4 free tasters of their fresh beer. We tried 8 different beers between the two of us. Unfortunately, my favorite beer is still the #9, but the others were fun to... More

We took the tour on a snowy evening and really had fun learning about the magic hat story. Our guide, Patrick, talk to us about how the brewery was started and how the beer is made. The short film on the process of beer making was fun and very consistent with the magic hat brand. The production facility and is... More

We visited the Magic Hat Brewing Company on a Sunday so the brewing factory was closed but we had a wonderful tour anyway. We loved the fact that you can sample 4 beers at no charge so that you can then make a purchase of your favorite beer. You can buy cute stocking stuffer type items plus tee shirts, sweatshirts...

Our 3rd visit, we love that we can sample at no charge 4 shooter sized beers, this gives us a chance to try them out. We always end up buying a few to go. There is a guided tour of the place and also a truly nice gift shop, it is a charming place...
