A house favorite! Our 92 IBU Dark IPA. Roasty and bitter. Made with British malts.

Bombay Grab IPA
A big, bitter 77 IBU India Pale Ale, spiced with a blend of fragrant Magnum, Simcoe, and Cascade hops. An American IPA receipe designed by our late Brewmaster, Greg Noonan. He said that he wanted this to represent the American style IPAs being brewed by the creative brewers using todays malt and hop varieties. One of the original "East Coast IPA's."

Burly Irish Ale
A slightly caramel, medium bodied smooth Irish Red Ale. Rich, creamy and mellow. A VPB favorite for 27 years! Designed to be a session ale at 4.2% ABV. Very lightly hopped to enhance the appeal for the masses. A true crowd pleaser. We have proudly served over a half million pints of this popular ale to our loyal customers!
4.2% ABV 17 IBU 12 SRM
A classic, well balanced ESB brewed with traditional East Kent Golding and Fuggles hops. There is a big, fierce, earthy hop bite complemeted by a well rounded, flavorful and malty body. A very bright beer with a rich, deep amber appearance. Try it. You'll like it. A Pub favorite for over 20 years!
5.4%ABV 40 IBU 8.5 SRM
A light, refreshing fruit beer fremented with over 500 pounds of real raspberries! At 6.2% ABV it is in the early reaches of the strong biére category! This ruby red, sour mashed and oak aged weiss beer is for everyone. Maybe some oak, cherry and vanilla come through? Try mixing it with our currently offered stout, on tap. It is real, it is right and it works. The freshest framboise on tap in town, no question!
6.2% ABV 15 IBU 8 SRM
Handsome Micks Irish Stout
Another classic from the cellars of the Vermont Pub & Brewery. Brewmaster Russ FitzPatrick has tweaked this Irish style dry stout to take on a character of its own! A rich, roasty, smooth and creamy Export Stout with a session 4.5% ABV reminiscent of a popular and well renowned stout that comes from Ireland. Sit back and enjoy this one no matter what the season! Mixes well with our very own Forbidden Fruit for a perfect "Raspberry Stout." Yum.
4.5% ABV 10 IBU 40 SRM
An American style lager. Light and clean. Low hop bitterness and hop flavors with subtle toasted malt finish. This is the beer you want to try if you are new to the craft beer market and would like to begin breaking away from the mass produced versions that dominate the beer world.
4.0% ABV 12 IBU 2 SRM
A Flemish Style Vermont Sour Red Ale fermented with brettanomyces yeast providing slight tartness with barnyard aromas and flavors. This recipe was the result of the collaborative efforts of VPB brewers both past and present in honor of their mentor and Master Brewer, Greg Noonan. The name (Toolah - Leez) comes from county Cork in Ireland where the Noonan clan originated. 6.1% ABV. Hits the style.
