“Fun and free samples”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Easy to find. One of the bartenders seemed to have a chip on his sholder, but everyone else was friendly....free samples always help!!!!!

“Fun Mardi Gras Themed Brewery”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

My husband loves #9, so we decided to visit the brewery while on a Killington trip. The decor in the brewery is funky and Mardi-Gras themed. The tour is short, and is given every hour; you are also given a sample card to try 4 of their beers. Best part, the tour and samples are free! We had a great time here and enjoyed the fun atmosphere.

“Mardi Gras like, beer just ok”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The place is very Mardi Gras like. The brewery/shop/tasting area is filled with beads and giant colorful heads, skulls, balloons, a photo booth .... I can't name them all as there was just too much stuff to see. Sensory overload!

I guess they're best known for their #9 beer which I tried and can say, was not very impressed. The Maple Chocolate Stout and Feast of Fools Raspberry Stout weren't so bad and we purchased 1 bottle of the Wheat wine but we later had buyers remorse.

Overall, we don't plan on revisiting but hey, we got one stamp on our VT Brewers Association Passport.

“Very dark but good beer”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Very dark inside, poorly lit. Cashiers lack friendliness and both time there was treated poorly. Very little thanks. The tap people however very nice and friendly.

“A decent experience”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

The corporate vibe has definitely taken over at Magic Hat. 95% of the experience is sitting in their giant gift shop. The beer is great as always, but the service and passion of a small brewery is gone.
Trade slips of papers for beers and no insight on the brewing process from the bartender. For a better experience, go check out Fiddleheads.
