Foam Brewers is a very popular place. We dropped in on a Saturday afternoon. DJ Sam was spinning, the line up for beer was long, babies were playing and the crowd were enjoying themselves. The setting for Foam is quite idyllic. Set facing the lake...More

The beer we tried was ok....just ok, but the service was just a notch away from being full-out rude. Mediocre beer is not worth enduring the surly servers at Foam. Too many other choices in the area.

We loved our visit to Foam Brewers! We were there around 8pm on a Tuesday just for beer. There was a pretty good crowd there and an awesome DJ playing. The beers were tasty, and the bartender kindly allowed us try a few before we...More

I'm not a huge fan of fruit or sour beers but Foam's offerings were all very good and not overly sweet. I consider it an artisan beer place with a slightly higher price per glass than some of the other Burlington breweries charge. The spot...More

Burlington is known for its craft breweries, so it’s hard to choose which is the best. Foam is definitely near the top of the list. The tap menu is always changing and the variety of beers offered is great. I also enjoy how you can...More

I’m pretty sure they do have tours but they are limited. I want to say it was in their website but could be wrong.
