Yeah, I'm not sure I'd want to stay somewhere new each night, but every couple nights moving to a new hotel would be fine. That's crazy. At least VT is smaller so you can do a bunch of day trips. On our honeymoon, we stayed in Stowe and did trips to Cabot, Burlington, and Long Trail (we hit that for lunch on our way up). If you wanna good place to stay to be central to most of the breweries, I think Montpelier is a good bet. It's also a great little city (Three Penny Taproom is awesome, too).

Is the Norwich Inn okay to bring a toddler to for lunch? I'm looking on the website and it seems to be more of a fine dining place. I was hoping to stop there on the way to Burlington tomorrow.

I don't see why not. There's a bar area in the back that's more casual.

The front dining room is a bit "stiff", but the pub area is very laid back and you can look out the window at the brewery next door. Definitely visit the brewery......

Wow guys, Heady Topper really takes the cake. We stopped by the cannery today and that is some beer, easily the best IIPA I have ever had. It blows Pliny out of the water!

So Terrill st beverage in Rutland now carries Lawsons. Had a chinooker'd IPA and it was excellent. They carry the Alchemist Heady Topper too. The beer thing in Rutland is looking up! And it's not a Vermont beer but they had Porkslap Farmhouse Ale from NY. Love the name!

Would have loved a couple of Lawson's Double Sunshines today (Friday is my beer day), but considering I need two bombers, I wasn't about to spend $23.

The Berkshire bombers at $3.98 are the biggest bargain in beer these days
