“Awesome food that goes great with their beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Have been here several times for the beer and more recently have tried their food. Seems like I'm never disappointed. The most recent time I tried the chili which was awesome. The staff is friendly and helpful and the beer they have is a perfect pairing with the food. Good menu with plenty of beer influenced options.

“Great beer and friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We only had the beer sampler but want to go back for food one day. It sounded delicious and we heard rave reviews of their food from someone else. The beer sampler is six 4oz pours of your choice for $6.50 (a little more if you choose the Russian imperial). We don't know much about beer so the bartender chose for us. The beer was great and it helped us narrow down our preferences. Well worth a stop if you are in the area.

“Great beer and even awesome cheese soup-what more could you have…”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Otter Creek Brewing Company is a must stop whenever I am in Middlebury or passing through it to other places in Vermont. I have loved their beers throughout the years and they have since added in addition to their Otter Creek and Wolaver beers the Shed beers. The Shed Restaurant and Brewery was an icon and mainstay in Stowe, Vermont for many years and recently closed its doors. Fortunately Otter Creek was able to obtain the recipes of its beers and so we can continue to enjoy the Shed beers for many years to come. Try its Mountain Ale. Another plus at the brewery besides enjoying their great beers is the addition of a lunch menu. Recently when my wife and I had lunch there, we enjoyed an awesome bowl of its beer cheese soup. We have not had any cheese soup as delicious as that in several years. Wow! So if you want to have great beers and food in the company of a great management and serving staff, then Otter Creek Brewing Company is a must stop in your travels to the Green Mountain State.

Went to the brewery to fulfill the requirements for the Vermont Brewery Passport. The Barkeep was very knowlegeable about all things having to do with their house beers as well as those in the passport. Had the open tuna melt for a snack,Done well and well done.highly recomend the trip if in the area. Check the Vermont brewery.com website for hours and menu selections.
