Re: “2016: The Year in Beer

Upper Pass is a great new nano brewery; however the beer you included is First Drop, not One Drop.

Re: “2016: The Year in Beer

Simple Roots opened a tasting room in the NNE this summer. As a new resident of the neighborhood I'm pretty stoked about that.

Nice to see the bottle of Junior in the shot. I'm guessing it was enjoyed. Cheers.

Re: “2016: The Year in Beer

No mention of 1st Republic opening in Essex. Making great beers and a home brew shop too.

Re: “New Location, Same Great Vibe at the Burlington Winter Farmers Market

Just the name Farmers Market makes me cringe anymore. It's a misnomer. What farmers ? Theses have become craft and specialty food fairs and over priced at that. Even in summer there are few farmers to be found. Give me a good farm stand any day in a country road. These things belong un a mall or school gym.

Re: “New Location, Same Great Vibe at the Burlington Winter Farmers Market

I'm not sure what "Same Great Vibe" means, but the new location is a huge fail in my book. We went to the first Winter Farmer's Market a few weeks ago and doubt we will return. The ground floor of the Davis Center is not a big open space as needed for a market; instead, it's an irregular-shaped area with just a lot of clutter -- the normal stuff you'd expect to see in a student center that's not set up to host a farmer's market (duh!). And so the vendors have to squeeze themselves into whatever space they can, and on down a hallway that's not nearly wide enough for vendors and patrons, and everyone has to push by eachother this way and that, with the traffic flow not working at all.

Add to that, the parking was a challenge when we went, being unfamiliar with UVM parking rules. The Jeffords lot that we were directed to by signs was full, with a lot of cars just circling around, but we finally did find plenty of open parking just further away.

The University Mall would be a perfect place for an indoor farmer's market. Tons of parking, big wide open spaces for vendors to set up, and lots of stores that would love the extra foot traffic.

Re: “New Location, Same Great Vibe at the Burlington Winter Farmers Market

Thank God. Same great vibe. I don't know what I would have done if the vibe hadn't been great or hadn't been the same.

Re: “My Seven Favorite Vermont Beers of 2016

Thanks, sounds like some great beer to try when I can get to Vermont next. Switchback is what I miss the most. Maybe it is because my husband and I fell in love drinking it on Thursday nights with a delivery pizza and Marnie bartending at TRuggs. Since we moved to Nashville our favorite beer getaway is Asheville, NC. If you go, make sure you check out Burial Beer.

Re: “Dining on a Dime: Costello's Market

I love Costello's Market and have been going there for years however It's a stretch to write about them for "Dining on a Dime" being that I never leave there without spending at least 15-25$ and that is for just one person's lunch without dessert. I'm not a heaver eater BTW it's just the price point that does this. The food is really good but there are much better options around Middlebury for the conscience eater. Thanks

Re: “Dining on a Dime: Boustan

The pink pickle is almost certainly turnip. Turnips pickled with a beet in each jar is a staple of regional cuisine.

Re: “Food and Chaucer at the Isole Dinner Club

Disclosures never precede an article, whether it's Seven Days or other publication. This also wasn't much of a disclosure - volunteering? Normally one would only need to disclose for a paid situation so this author went above and beyond. As for the oatcakes, the author provided only a description, not praise, for them.

Re: “Drink Up: Scout & Company in Winooski

This article is surely satire. Nothing could possibly be this pretentious otherwise.

Re: “Food and Chaucer at the Isole Dinner Club

I feel that disclosures should appear at the start of an article, rather than the end.

Re: “Farmers Market Kitchen: Wild Grape Jam

Made your wild grape jelly (jam) recipe last month . It is wonderful , fragrant and has a brilliant color . Won't make it again though unless I have a food mill . It was too thick for a sieve and the colander allowed solids through . Kinda neat to make something out of all those wild grape vines . Thank you .

Re: “Monarch & the Milkweed Opens in Burlington

This was, hands down, the WORST restaurant experience I have ever had in Burlington.
I really wanted to like this restaurant. When you walk in, this very modern, clean establishment looks fantastic. The service was warm and friendly, but every single aspect of the food and drink we received fell a mile short of any expectations.
The biscuits and gravy were awful, a soup bowl of floury gravy with two very small, hockey puck biscuits. It was so peppery it was inedible and not worth the $10 price tag.
The quiche was actually disgusting. The size of a small coffee cup and tasting like it was an egg cooked with a cup of sugar, I couldn't eat more than a single, very small bite. It was served with a salad 3x larger than the quiche itself that was WAY over dressed with lemon juice, to the point where it was not enjoyable to eat and tasted like a low quality sour candy. Most certainly not worth $9.
The $4 hash brown was barely a 2 inch cube, and tasted like a chinese food chicken finger.
On top of it all the coffee was watery and disappointing, with the only espresso options were Nespresso disposable coffee cups instead of real espresso.
When we addressed the issues with the owner, over our plates of clearly uneaten food, we were told they "weren't comfortable" giving us any refund for our $40 meal but were told to "send an email" when we wanted to come back to get something free, even after we insisted that we would never be coming back.

Like to see your evaluation of the orange food truck just north of downtown Windsor.

Re: “Dining on a Dime: Pho Taó Vietnamese Restaurant

Cheap food is good, I guess, but what about its sources, al a last week's article on sustainability and food ethics highlighted?
