BURLINGTON + WATERBURY | VERMONT

Burlington + Waterbury, VT | Sevengrams

This weekend's escape was just what we needed -- a quick trip out of town to focus on us, combined with good food, fantastic beer and fresh country air. I was last in Burlington about 15 years ago, at an age when shopping at Old Navy and Abercrombie - in America - was revolutionary (oh how times have changed). This trip was a little different. After hearing about Vermont's incredible craft beer scene, we headed down primarily for the beer. We were wow-ed by the beer, equally impressed with the food, and fell madly in love with Vermont's charm.

DRINK //
all the beer. seriously, allll of it. if you have to choose, these were our favourites:
the alchemist's heady topper
anything from hill farmstead, especially their citra + conduct of life
citizen cider's full nelson
anything from lawson's finest liquid's, especially sip of sunshine and super session #2
foley brothers' prospect
apple cider from cold hollow cider mill

EAT //
lunch (and a pint) at the farmhouse tap & grill, burlington
