‘Where Fermentation Meets Imagination’
We brew with local and international malts, hops, yeast, fruit, vegetables, spices, and herbs while we explore new ways to put our stamp on classic beer styles. We strive to find balance between going too far and staying rooted in tradition. You can find our beer in cans and 750ml bottles. Burlington Beer Co. is located in Williston, Vermont. Est. 2014
