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

Their own ales are really great. The are not commonly available in liquor stores so it's a good idea to visit.

I have brought guests to McNeill's many times throughout the years. We always enjoyed the beer, the service, and the bar. My guest were always white. Memorial Weekend, Saturday night, brought a friend from PR. The young lady behind the bar was courteous to me. However she refused to serve my friend and told him "you can't hang out here".... More

Not for the food, though what's there is good. Go for the one of a kind exceptional, front of the pack, BEER. I'm lucky enough to live close by and embarrassed that, despite drinking McNeill's when I can, I haven't been to the 'source' recently. Remedied that last Friday. Fun, family atmosphere (in a bar?) and great beer. Try it... More

Don't expect any frills--just great beer. Unlike the plenitude of local breweries popping up everywhere, McNeill's has consistently offered some of the Northeast’s finest beers since its opening back in 1992. Brewmaster Ray McNeill has won accolades far and wide, including thirteen national and international awards. It's a friendly joint--dartboard and all--and despite the fact that it is a brewery,...
