Smoky beers are a must try
Aug 2021 • Couples
This was our favorite stop on our self-guided brewery tour. The smoky flavors are strong and tasty! Seating both indoors and out was nice to have the choice, and inside has a great view of the brewing process. Staff was friendly and helpful, too.

We visited and tried to make reservations for our party of six, only to be told they don’t take them. When we arrived, they asked if we had a reservation?? It was frustrating and they wouldn’t take us. They then he assists you gave us one for later in the day which they honored.

Compared to other breweries and tastings it was meh. I wouldn’t bother with this brewery. Also, when we did the Flynn Smoke & Fire experience the staff weren’t helpful in how to taste.

We came up to Burlington for the day, and always make the rounds at the local breweries. Switchback is definitely one place we always come back to. No flights, but drafts were plentiful.

Dogs, dogs, dogs....and beer

We brought our dog, who was excited to meet the other pups. We also ordered chili dogs to accompany our beers. I mean- if that doesn't do it for you, why are you going to a Vermont brewery?

We had a great time at our visit to Switchback. It was one of the more enjoyable stops as we visited 4-5 other breweries during our trip

Brew Tour Stop Well Worth It
Jun 2019 • Couples
Stopped at Switchback 3rd on a 4 stop tour. By this time we were past playing games in the heat like corn hole but we thoroughly enjoyed the beer tasting. Had never experienced a Flynn on Fire “smoked” beer and must say I’m not crazy about drinking my sausage. The other varieties like the ales and ipa’s were good and refreshing. The Connector IPA hit the spot. The Berliner Weiss was light and tasty; the Karston Lager a bit heavier but still tasty.

Awesome place!!
Apr 2019 • Couples
We were heading back to Connecticut and decided to try one more spot. We went in and loved the layout. You can see where they make them. I really enjoyed the Blackstrap ale and the Roasted Red ale. The couple that we met the night before came down and met us. Great people!! Great beer!! Great time!’
