I took my beer nerd boyfriend here and we had such a great time - very informative, fun prizes for questions answered correctly, and lots o' samples! Great for a group outing and varied beer experience levels.

We had been wanting to visit this brewery for awhile as a bunch of people we know have done and enjoyed. We had a great time, although we didn't take the tour. They have a nice little "tasting" bar - you are allowed to taste up to four of their brews. All of the flavors were great! The gift shop... More

Stopped here on a tour of some of the breweries in the Burlington area. Had some great tastings and talked with the friendly staff. Browsed the gift shop area and went to take the self-guided tour but nothing was going on. Bought a growler of Steven Sour (only sold in VT) to bring home.

I came to Burlington specifically to visit Magic Hat and it didn't disappoint. Friendly staff and loads of cool merchandise. Even the #9 tastes better here! Got myself 2 Genie Bottle growlers and a handful of fun merchandise and enjoyed every minute of it. A must do if your anywhere near here!

This small brewery has a self guided tour which is really neat. After the tour you can taste all the brews that they have on tap. Then browse through the give shop. If in the area a nice place to give a look.

Magic Hat is a fun, friendly brewery. Tasting room is large and dimly lit. You can sample 4 beers for free. Growlers filled, large merchandise section, tours of the brewery. A great time!

Got to try four samples of beer and take photos in the booth to send to your email. The gift shop is colorful and large! They have a lot of different souvenirs that you can purchase. We tried to go on the last tour and it was a group of 8 of us and they guy told us it would... More

Perhaps I'm wrong, but I believe all beer drinkers love Magic Hat beer, and their brewery is a real nice stop while in scenic Burlington. The building doesn't look like much from the road, but the blue-collar vibe of the place suits them well. Do be careful driving if it's busy there, as people let their pets out to pee... More

The tour was honestly pretty lame and we didn't see or learn too much. In fact, our tour guide didn't seem to really want to give it; probably because she knows there is not too much to see. Obviously the tasting is where it is at, and its nice to go in and taste a few beers. We did the... More
