    Very cool artwork and funky carnival atmosphere. I generally like Magic Hat but wasn't crazy about the samples on tap when I visited :/

    Magic Hat #9 it's one of those Pale Ale's that leaves you wondering about the ingredients, great beer

    Four free beer samples per person and free brewery tours every day! As far as the beer itself goes, though, I like the other breweries in Burlington better.

    A cool brewery store/taproom with excellent beers on tap. Tasting flights are also offered. One of the best Vermont brewery experiences!

    I don't really like beer but enjoyed touring the factory and samples. Fun place!

    Erin Murphy · February 21
  • Monika K.

    The bulk of the tour is just a video about the beer-making process, not much of the actual facilities, but it's free! You also get four free beer samples at the bar.

    Free self-guided tour with a SUPER cute movie. Free beer sampling. Can grab a growler of fresh beer cheap! Kids & parents loved this stop!

  • Kerry C.

    Great beer, 8 of their own on tap. No seating at the bar, 4 free samples allowed. No pints sold, only growlers. They will fill other brewery's growlers and growelettes!

    Kerry Clark · October 25, 2014
  • Duane B.

    4 taster limit wish you could have more.

    Duane Boucher · October 12, 2014

    The tour is ok. The free samples worthwhile

    Free fun beer tour. 4 free samples. Great merchandise shop.

  • Eric L.

    Best beer tour in VT. Place is super creative. They limit the amount of samples you can have, but they're still free. Keep an eye out for Big Hundro if you like hops!

    Eh. Not as good as before, number 9 is still their best beer. The 4 shots of beer rule is lame. I would rather pay and at least get to try each of the beers.

    Amesicle · June 28, 2014
  • Lisa M.

    Funky and awesome, success hasn't changed them. Just one reason to love them. The other is the beer! #9 & Circus Boy are old faves and Pistil is a new one!!

    Lisa Moss · March 29, 2014
  • Jake S.

    Choose your favorite beer from the sampling bar, and then buy the pint glass that matches that beer!

    Make sure to get samples of the Maple Chocolate Stout and the Graupel if they're there.

    Awesome free beer, and a free can you possibly beat that?!!

    George L · October 12, 2013
  • Lisa S.

    Great customer service here!

    Lisa Sullivan · August 10, 2013
  • Frank

    Pick up a growler of the Honey Wheat IPA. Delicious and exclusive to Vermont!

    Frank · August 4, 2013
  • jane m.

    If you visit you can take the free self guided tour and then get four free samples of their beers. Crafty rather than craft its an ok visit if you are in the vicinity.

    jane mcconnell · July 22, 2013
  • Ryan S.

    Everyone is super nice, but the tour goes on for a very long time. We went in the summer, and I bet the beer samples are a lot better in the fall or winter.

    Ryan Snyder · July 16, 2013

    Free Magic Hat sticker with check in. Take a photo of something at the Artifactory

    Be one of the firsts to grab our new, Liberty Bottle. Its a new 32oz bottle that can be filled with our tasty beer to quench your thirst as the days get warmer. $24 includes the bottle and the fill.

    Don't go with you wife. Especially when she's hungry and rushing you out the door. Reason enough to come back soon.

    A.G. Pitsilos · March 12, 2013
  • Erik H.

    Spring Beer is now on tap: Pistil, Ticket to Rye, Rousing Root, and Belgo Sutra. Grab a growler or two... Or ten.

    Loved the vibe!! I know its just sampling and a tour but I really wish the place was a full fledged bar. I would go there all the time. Definitely stop by if you are in the area.
