VT Brew Pubs & Breweries
VT Micro Brewery Tours – Beer Making – Ale House & Stout
Take a Vermont Brewery Tour. Brewing Beer and making wine are New England traditions. Early Vermont settlers typically stored several barrels of cider or brandy in their cellars to help take the chill off of the long, cold winter. By 1810, Vermont had 125 distillers producing more than 173,000 gallons of apple brandy annually. By the late 1800’s temperance movements, changes in liquor traffic, and Prohibition led to the virtual elimination of Vermont’s commercial beer and wine industries. Today, Vermont is home to dozens of brew pubs (micro-breweries) and wineries, and the number is on the rise. Explore our favorites below. Ask us about Vermont brew pubs or share comments.

Vermont Breweries – Microbrews & Brew Pubs
The Norwich Inn, 325 Main Street, Norwich, VT 05055
Vermont brewery tradition was revived at the Norwich Inn in 1993 when Jasper Murdock's Alehouse began producing traditional English-style ales in 5-gallon glass jugs. By 1995, an historic livery building was renovated and outfitted with a new four-barrel brew house, enabling 125-gallon batches. The vessels are now larger, but the Jasper Murdock Alehouse remains one of the smallest breweries in America. These hand crafted beers are sold only at the Inn. Call ahead and place your an order to pick up when you come to the Inn. The Norwich Inn offers an extensive, diverse and moderately priced menu incorporating traditional pub favorites with elegant dinner options. We have nightly dinner and wine specials that can be enjoyed in our pub or dining room 7 nights a week. An Inn has been on the site since 1797; the current Victorian Structure since 1890. We offer 38 guestrooms, Pub, Dining Room, and Microbrewery.
