Welcome to Burlington

Perched on the shore of Lake Champlain, Vermont's largest city would be considered tiny in most other states, but its relatively diminutive size is one of Burlington's charms. With the University of Vermont (UVM) swelling the city by 13,400 students, and a vibrant cultural and social life, Burlington has a spirited, youthful character. And when it comes to nightlife, this is Vermont's epicenter.Due south of... Read More

Small-Group Burlington Beer and Culinary Tour

This Burlington tour is jam-packed with tasty treats and delicious libations, and all of it against the backdrop of cool public art, murals, and installations.         We’ll begin downtown in City Hall Park and make our way to our first distillery stop. Along the way, your guide will point out the numerous shops and restaurants located around the grounds, helping you to get your bearings so you’ll know where to go during the rest of your time in town.It’s tasting time! At the distillery, you’ll indulge in a tasting of spirits and one-of-a-kind handcrafted cocktails. We’ll then head down Main Street and stop at the Vermont Comedy Club, located in the old Armory building, to find out what they have to offer for the upcoming evening should you want to take in a show after the tour. We’ll journey south down Pine Street and into the heart of Burlington’s thriving Arts District.  Check out the stunning murals and art the street has to offer before heading to our second stop at one of Vermont’s premiere hard cider breweries. Because we’re sure you’ll be thirsty, there will be a sample there waiting for you.  You will also have the option to try some of their other seasonal ciders on tap before we get a good look at the brewing floor.  Our next stop is across the street at a famous bagel shop, beloved for its Montreal-style bagels that are boiled in honey and finished in a wood-fired brick oven. You’ll get to taste the Montreal Spice bagel —which is not only delicious but truly unique compared to any other bagel in town! We will then explore more of Pine Street and the unique shops, pieces of public art, murals, cafés, small parks, and pubs that line the route before stopping at one of Burlington’s newest breweries, where you’ll get another taste and a peek at the brewery floor.   Just next door is one of Vermont’s best-kept secrets: a local chocolate factory!  Put your palate to the test with a blind taste-test and watch the chocolates being made right out on the factory floor.  They also offer some of the country’s best small-batch ice cream, which, of course we’ll get to taste. And we certainly can’t miss the factory’s “seconds” section, where delicious chocolate can be purchased for a fraction of the cost! From there, your Burlington tour will take you to our final stop: another local brewery! This one specializes in traditional European-style beers, and you’ll have the opportunity to bring some of those delicious chocolates with you for a beer and chocolate pairing.   Our tour ends here.  Your guide will provide you with some recommendations should you wish to continue on to other nearby breweries, or go to  Oakledge Park to catch the sunset, or jump on the bus (ticket included if used immediately after the tour!) back to downtown Burlington.
