I had visited once before, 15 years ago, so it was time to visit again. If you like beer, or even just hearing about the history of small companies, then you should pay a visit to Magic Hat brewery. The tours are free and our tour guide was very animated and informative. We were there on a weekend, so there... More

My wife and father-in-law love stopping by and getting a growler - but most of all they love getting some free samples.

So much fun. Great informative tour with free samples at the end. There are quite a few beers on tap, so you can sample some ones you haven't had before. They have a nice selection of Magic Hat souvenirs too.

We came to try and go on the free tour of the brewery however as it was a Monday they don't run tours. They do however offer 4 free beer tastings per person. There were 9 or so beers to taste, some of which are exclusive to this bar. It's a pretty unique brewery. Very quirky and fun.

Magic Hat is a hip brewery with a lot of local art, cool bar accessories and plenty of beer on tap. I liked every beer at the tasting bar.

We stopped because we saw the brochure on our way and thought it was a funny place. Cute video explains the brew process in simple but funny terms. Gift shop was fever and the beer tasting was fun. We each got to taste 4 beers. Worth the stop.

We popped in and were underwhelmed. Lots of hoopla, free samples (limit 4), tours, and lots of merchandise for sale. Still, to us, it was all a little contrived. I can't say there was anything wrong with Magic Hat; still it was far from our favorite 2-day Vermont brewery tour stop. Worth a look, just don't plan on staying too... More

This place is amazing! The colours and lights are fantastic and the tour is fascinating. The beer samples at the end are a nice touch! The tour is free. The samples are free and the t-shirts are a great price. I'd go back.

Stopped in for a tour of the place and a tasting. Tour was free, as was the tasting - pretty cool. Ended up getting some beer to bring home in growlers for both ourselves and our friends. The place itself embraces the concept of being a 'different' brewery, and the decor matches that. You get to sample four beers, but... More
