Cool off at the Best Breweries in Vermont near our B&B

Our beautiful state attracts an eclectic mix of artists, makers, and culinary talents and due to this melting pot of personalities and skillsets, you’ll find some of the best breweries in Vermont tucked away within the Mad River Valley and the nearby villages. Craft beers lovers can create quite an exciting itinerary during their stay for tasting and dining at these nearby Vermont brew pubs.

One of our favorite breweries is also the closest stop to our Vermont Bed and Breakfast. Lawson’s Finest Liquids was founded in 1990 by Sean Lawson with a home batch of a Maple Wheat Ale—now you’ll find 15 brews on the tap list at the brewery. As one of the best breweries in Vermont, the list of awards and accolades Lawson’s has accumulated over the years is impressive. We always recommend that our guests head to this German-style beer hall for pints, pretzel bites, and patio seating.

Before you start planning your beer tasting tour in Vermont, you’ll want to get your lodging on the books, and our Warren Bed and Breakfast is an ideal place to make your home base. West Hill House B&B is the perfect place to unwind and relax on a getaway for two, a couple’s vacation, or even a solo retreat to reset. Our guest rooms and suites are unique and feature high-end amenities to make your stay memorable and comfortable. Head over to our booking calendar and reserve today!

Join us for a Single Malt Tasting:

Something unique to a stay at our Vermont Bed and Breakfast is our Quaich single malt scotch bar. Our Innkeeper Peter is from Scotland and loves to share his knowledge with his guests. We feature a variety of malts from the islands and Speyside with a tasting of four to five pours. Our guests who come as a couple will often share this experience, and it’s best to be enjoyed in the evening when you’re in for the night! You’ll also appreciate our handpicked selection of other fine liquors, wine, and beer to be imbibed during your stay.
