During a visit to Brattleboro Vermont we stopped into Hermit Thrush to check it out. The spot is located right on High St off Main St. Parking can be tricky depending on time of day and time of year. We did notice a parking lot on the side but not sure this is public or private. However, we found it best to park near the train station and walk Main st, because why not. The streets are lined with hustling little shops and people from near and far.
Once you enter Hermit Thrush you will notice a large archway in front of you that you can see some of the brewing process. To the left you will notice more of the brewery and to the right is the bar/taps. Please note this brewery is solely focused on sours. But this sours are hands down some of the best in the business. The tap list is pretty extensive with flavors changing from season to season. On this day we sampled four different sours. The staff was very informative and knew historical questions about the brewery, not just the beer.
The taproom offers the opportunity to purchase cans of beer, get growler fills, and buy merchandise. If you have your own growler they will fill it but they also offer glass for sale in case you forgot one. Mark this brewery on the GPS for the next time you visit Vermont.
