Vermont Pub and Brewery in Burlington Vermont, known to locals as “VPB” or the “the pub” is great place for pub food and good pints of beer. It’s also a fun place to watch Red Sox games despite the smallish TV. Also when they aren’t Sox games on you can pick the game, I was enjoying watching the Eurocup while eating my lunch.
First off, this is an Angus burger, second it’s from local Shelburne Laplatte River Angus farm. Thirdly the burger is grilled, and cooks nail the temp you ask for 9/10 times (I like mine medium-rare). Finally the bun is toasted, and I like lettuce / tomato onion that comes on the side. It’s a 1/3 pound burger so you still have some room for beer, home made onion rings, sweet potato fries, or salad.
Whats so special about their mustard? Well it’s blended in house, it tastes like a mix of ground Dijon and whole grain Dijon, it’s got nice texture and kick.
I love this salad, pumpernickel and white croûtons, mesclun greens, carrot juliennes that are complimented by the great house dressing. The honey-chili vinaigrette shouldn’t be missed, perfect mix of sweet, acid and spice, just awesome.
The burger is an amazing $4.95 or $5.70 with cheese, the salad is $3.50, this is one of the better deals in town (pre-tax).
