In 2015 we broke ground on a brand new, 120-barrel brew house. This state-of-the-art facility will expand our capacity and allow us to deliver more of our deliciously dank beers to bottles cans and kegs everywhere. Phase one of this project included a complete renovation of our pub and restaurant space. On the heels of upgrades to our packaging and production facilities, our brand new, mid-century inspired digs reflect the commitment we've made to our brand and the collective creative juices the keep our brewery running. We invite you to hop on the bus and join us on our cosmic journey of craft. Pub and Restaurant open daily from 11am - 6pm serving a locally-sourced selection of tasty treats with a healthy dose of delicious brews served straight from our stash to your glass.

I am used to the old style tours which required a lot of walking. Of course now the breweries are smaller operations and the tours consist of looking through a few windows to observe the equipment. Not it matters, I expect that through the years the purpose of going on a Brewery Tour has always been focussed on the end... More

My husband and I stopped here as part of our Vermont vacation centered around beer. The tasting is bright with a lot of interesting touches to the decor. The staff here was great, we were greeted immediately by the host and there were tables available but we chose to grab seats at the bar. We had one of each of... More

We stopped by to sample some of their beers, as we were driving by. We did not order any food, but something did smell good while we were there and it looked like they had some things that were probably tasty. Anyway, nice space, love the hop shaped lights over the bar. It's not overly big inside, so I'm sure... More

Otter Creek was an awesome stop on the trail; small wait for a table which is needed for tasting or dining. Once seated a server tends to you for your tasting and delivers a food menu. The food is to die for ! Fire Pit Mac & Cheese (Shells, Jalapeño Pesto, and Pulled pork) and Pulled Pork Nachos ! The... More

I got a variety of India Pale Ales. The middle one was the refreshingest. A friendly place in a land of wonderfulness . No matter what the size of your bicycle is, your favorite thing to do should be right there

I took visiting family to visit Middlebury's local beer scene and we were not disappointed. The dining room has huge windows on one side - overlooking the bottling operation and brewery and on the other side is a terrific bar serving beers from OCB as well as any other Vermont breweries! Great lunch food as well - the chili was... More

This was my first brewery stop in Vermont and I was not disappointed. The taproom is a little small, but the beer was great as well as the food.

Spent the weekend in Burlington and decided to make a quick pit stop here on our way home. My boyfriend and I loved the atmosphere here. Food was delicious; I'm not a huge beer drinking but my boyfriend loves Otter Creek beer and said it was great here. Probably one of the cleanest and well kept breweries we've been to!... More
