Drink and Dine
Beloved Vermont gastropub Prohibition Pig opened its own brewpub next door in December. Food-wise, you’ll find a taco-centric menu, plus pork ramen and pretzels. Ten draft lines, meanwhile, dispense pale ales and IPAs of all stripes, heftier stouts, and creative brews like the Brass Monkey, an orange-zested malt liquor. prohibitionpig.com
Willimantic Brewing Co.
Long before New England brewers jumped on the hoppy-beer bandwagon, Willimantic brewer and owner Dave Wollner was producing more than 20 kinds of IPAs each year. Wollner also has a passion for spicy food: His “Oy Vey” chicken wings, for example, are made with locally grown habanero peppers. willimanticbrewingcompany.com
Zero Gravity Craft Brewery
Inside American Flatbread’s Burlington Hearth outpost, Zero Gravity brewer-owner Paul Sayler, along with brewmaster Destiny Saxon, crafts Belgian ales, German lagers, and hoppy American styles that happen to pair quite well with crisp-crusted pies. zerogravitybeer.com
