we arrived about 10 mins for the last tour but that didnt matter because they let us run and catch up with the group anyways! Nick was great, really knowledgeable and just overall a lot of fun! We made sure that we let everyone know how much of an amazing time we had during our visit. Thanks a lot :)

My husband and I love Magic Hat beers so the brewery was a must during our time in Burlington! Nick was our tour guide and he did a great job! Cannot remember the guy that gave us our samples but he was informative and fun! Thanks Magic Hat - we'll be back!

If you're in the area Magic Hat Brewery is definitely worth an hour of your time. That's all you need though an hour, it's a free guided or self-guided tour, and then you get to sample 4 of their beers (again it's free), and there's the obligatory gift shop. I'd presumed that it would also be a beer hall, i.e.... More

I found it almost by accident as I was leaving the place I was working at. They have some very neat art in the factory. It is not a large place and they only make a few craft beers. And they make them tasty. They also have growlers to let you take home a nice fresh beer and you can... More

This brewery has a really cool tour and gift shop, 4 free tastes which was really great, the art all around is excellent, bring your camera. The gift shop has alot of cool things too especially if you are a fan of magic hat.

Although the brewery is small, it is still fascinating to learn about the Magic Hat brand, see how it all happens, and have some great samples. It's all FREE which is great. If you're a fan of Magic Hat, the souvenir shoppe is also worthwhile.

We didn't do the tour, but we did do some samples. We aren't really educated in all of the different aspects of beer, but we do know that we love beer. And we know what good beer tastes like. You get 4 free samples. My favorites were #9 and Dream Machine. All were very tasty though. Great gift shop also.... More

For going on a lot of different beer tours this was one of my first self-guided tours and one of the most interesting. Filled with unique pieces and exhibits you really get to learn the history of Magic Hat and making beer. At the end you get back to where you started at with the gift shop and bar. Variety... More

Love the beer!!! Awesome little stop in Burlington, the tour is fast but gives you what you are there for. Nice shop too, they do a really good job with their merchandising. Would recommend to anyone who is into craft brews.

All around I thought this was a fun (and free!) tour. It also came with complimentary tastings at the bar!
