Tips from the community

Another sweet find in Burlington's South End, Switchback's Flynn Ave brewery is a super safe bet for tourists who are looking to dip a toe in the Vermont Brewery scene. Their world-famous tap-list may be less experimental than some of the other spots on this list, but what they lack in crazy flavor profiles, they more than make up for in consistency and top-notch quality. Look for their classic amber bottle 6-packs at most grocery stores across the East Coast.

Well-behaved dogs are allowed both inside and outside of Switchback's Tap Room as long as they are leashed and don't disrupt other customers and dogs.
