This was a lot of fun to visit and tour. The atmosphere was great and very hipster. The sampling/tasting,however, is where they lost me. Had to push my way to a spot at the bar, only to be ignored by an understaffed, less than caring team of bartenders. They did their job and nothing more. No personalities, no interaction. But...

Was in town for the weekend and decided to check out Magic Hat. Great time, cool free tour, and a wild taproom to top it off. You get 4 free beer tastings at the end which was nice. Great time.

This place is one of the coolest places I have ever visited. The staff was awesome and very talkative. Free beer samples and an awesome facility to tour! Definitely check this out!

My husband and I are big beer drinkers and we actually plan trips around brewery visits. When we stopped into Magic Hat, we were really disappointed. Most other breweries have a tour that interactive. Magic Hat just plops you in front of a screen and has you watch a video from the 80's. There were samples but it was in... More

Great short film, brief viewing of facilities, and tasting in their very cool store area. Quirky. It puts a smile on your face.

A feast for the eyes and taste buds! Free sampling and a self guided tour and photo booth. A lot of things to look at and purchase. One of the most interesting breweries I've been to!

Magic Hat is always a must do when in Burlington. They are very generous with the tastings and we always leave with at least a growler or 2. Staff is super friendly and it is really fun to go up and watch how the beer is made. Thanks Magic Hat!

I really loved the atmosphere and the theme in the brewery. It is so much fun. Take the walk around the ramp, even if you just do it self-guided. Lots of fun stuff to check out and the décor in this place is over the top (in a good way!) The bartenders were fun and helpful. The beers were also... More

We went to a lot of breweries in VT this week and this was definitely the best. The bartenders knew about every beer in detail. It was a cool vibe with a laid back feel. The tour was quirky and interesting. We will definitely be back again!

Thank taraannp
