Quaint and small micro brew in Bennington. Nice find! The owner is very nice and welcoming. The beer was good. The only thing missing is a bigger space and food. But the owner told us that is coming in the near future. Overall, pleasant surprise!

The pear-spiced beer was unique and delicious - the equinox pilsner and blood orange beer also were very good. Try the $5 tasting!

We stopped at Northshire as part of a brewery bus tour. Karen was very accommodating and flexible with our plans. With 21 it was a tight fit but it made the visit that much more enjoyable. The beers were very good - especially the Equinox...More
