Great beer with great servers and great food! I love their nachos -- they're the best in town. See if you can get Sarah, Ben or Justin to serve you! They're all so much fun and they'll be able to answer any question you have about the beer or the Middlebury area.

I stopped even though I don't drink beer! You can see brewing and packaging process through large windows which was great. Small area to eat with tables, small bar area. The bar does close about 7pm every day. Very friendly staff. The bartender didn't charge me for my beer samples I saw later. He asked my opinion on a new... More

We weren't necessarily planning on eating while visiting Otter Creek Brewing but were just overcome with the aromas when we entered the pub/dining area. We selected a nice flight of Otter Creek brews and enjoyed some avocado hummus and a cheese plate with local cheese. All was very tasty and quite inexpensive. Presentation was very nice and service was exemplary.... More

It isn't a very large place. They do have tables inside and outside. There always seemed to be people enjoying the tables outside. They have a large selection on craft beers on tap. You can also purchase t-shirts, sweatshirts and beer to take home. I did not eat there but enjoyed a selection of beer samples. Everyone was pleasant and... More

2nd time eating at Otter Creek. Brought friends from Nicaragua who were visiting. Food fare is not over priced, healthy, but not overly flavorful. I drink the oat stout beer at home, but the majority of the other beers are too hoppy for my taste. The same reaction from the others at my table. You can create your own sampler... More

We had to stop here because its my boyfriends favorite beer. This was my first time in Vermont so we had to try "the best brewery in town." We were enthusiastically greeted by the host with a British accent. There was a 15 minute line for a table which was fine until the owner/manager reprimanded us to sit down. He... More

We stopped by the Otter Creek Brewery for craft beer. The outside patio was a comfortable place to chill and relax. Even though it is not on the menu, I was able to customize my sampler to IBA type beers. One can also purchase merchandise and a mixed pack of beers or a growler here as well as draft beer.

Stopped by to have a beer. Really nice outside deck, waiter was hysterical. Really funny guy. I'm not a big beer drinker, but my boyfriend is, and he loved the beer. We had just eaten lunch, so didn't have any food, but they had a nice menu as well.

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.
