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."

5.5% ABV   77 IBU    6 SRM


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


A light-bodied American pale ale dry-hopped with ALL Vermont Nugget hops. This was the brainchild of Greg Noonan. He had said, privately, that he felt that he had nailed the style for what he had planned and hoped for. Enjoy this light, summer ale while watching your favorite team play. It's a homerun!

4.4% ABV 25 IBU 11SRM


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


Celebrate Autumn with our classic Marzen style amber lager!  Using authentic German pilsener and Munich malts, this smooth and crisp lager has a sweet malt finish complemented with German Mittelfrüh hops. Prosit!

5.6% ABV   17 IBU   11 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.

6.0%ABV  18 IBU  6 SRM

Raise one to Greg...


A light IPA, hopped exclusively with a blend of Vermont grown hops from the Vermont Hops Project, a UVM NW Crops & Soils program.  Light bodied and crisp with a slight bitter hop finish.
