The beer is nothing short of excellent! This is a pub/brewery. Hand crafted beer at its best! Go and enjoy something different, something fresh and something extremely tasteful!!

I'm not a beer fan but they are open a lot of hours and offer a wide array of simple, tasty, bar food; nachos, wraps, burritos, etc. I enjoyed just sitting and having a drink but was disappointed that the only big sunny window was filthy with pesty flies enjoying the sun too. Good clean bathrooms, bar games and tables... More

My wife and I love small breweries, and tend to scour the country for them. This was one of the worst we've seen - beer was not good, but that tends to be more of a matter of opinion than anything else. However, for us both difficult to overlook was how dark and dirty the establishment was; like walking into... More

We were the first patrons of the day, and felt like we were intruding on the BT and her "guest". Beer was average.

My friend and I are big beer fans and love a good brewery or dive bar. It takes a lot to make us feel uncomfortable in one of these establishments, but McNeill's definitely was the first. We walked in to local patrons glaring at us like we invaded their territory. The bartender didn't acknowledge or existence so we just grabbed... More

This is the best pub in Brattleboro. It has a really homey feel to it, and the people who work there are so friendly. The beer is excellent, and brewed right there! I could have stayed for hours, I was having so much fun!

Not impressed. We left before we finished our beers, which is saying something as we all enjoy a good pint. Skip this place there are plenty of better options in town.

I want to preface this by saying I actually did not sample ANY of the beers or food. There was really no opportunity. We found this place and it just seemed like it was going to be quite neat (and seemingly, many of the reviews/reviewers claim that it is) + the beer list looked extensive, so we were excited to...

Brattleboro isn't exactly the type of place you'd expect to have a hopping late-night party scene. But if it's after "normal" dinner times, and you're looking for a drink and a bite to eat, I'd recommend McNeill's. My wife and I were here on our honeymoon, and we'd been enjoying some local Vermont brews at our B&B (Forty Putney Road,... More
