I'm still a big fan of Vermont.  I'll take Alchemist and Hill Farmstead all day and the country is beautiful.

I've been a fan since I went up in first in 95 just to otter creek and Vermont Pub and Brewery.

If I could retire in Burlington I would more likely Traverse City but VT is number 2 if I can make it happen.

Looking forward to VT trip in 2/12

They're very decent - the Copper Ale is a basic session beer that somehow finds its way into my house on a regular basis and the Wolaver's Oatmeal Stout is damn solid.  None of their brews are "ZOMG!" but none of them are bad, either.  Just a solid little brewery.

Wolaver's Alta Gracia Coffee Porter is easily my favorite coffee porter.  I buy quite a bit of it each winter.

Forgot about that one - only had it once and enjoyed it a lot; seriously good balance.
