The Farmhouse Tap & Grill — You'd never guess this hot-spot gastropub used to be a McDonald's. Farm-to-table comforts and rare brews from Vermont and beyond draw daily crowds.

Three Penny Taproom — When praising Three Penny Taproom’s draft list, we could start with the fact that it numbers two dozen beers — that’s respectable by any standard. Then we could mention how it includes rare brews you won’t find nearly anywhere else. Taps here pretty much always flow with at least one beer from Greensboro’s renowned Hill Farmstead Brewery and White River Junction’s tiny River Roost Brewery — as well as with suds from out-of-state brewers who distribute precious few kegs to Vermont, such as Maine’s Oxbow Brewing and Michigan’s Bell’s Brewery. The selections are ever changing yet always on point, and as delicious as they are uncommon. What more could a beer nerd want?
