    Hey Steve,
    Some locals were kind enough to bring me bostons of your 3 year round beers and man are they a breath of fresh air. Nuanced, balanced, and creative. The 90/- is one of the better beers I have tried and I absolutely loved the yeast character. True works of art to be sure. All clean, none bland or boring. Excellent work. Hope I get to try more of the beers sooner rather than later.
    Cheers,
    Jeff

    This is the beer that got me drinking beer again. Looking forward to my next trek through Middlebury to pick up some more. Thank you!

    With a vacation home and summer rentals on Lake Dunmore, I knew about the brewery, but could never read your sign from the road. I finally stopped in on the Friday of Columbus day weekend after a meeting in Middlebury. After a bit of tasting, I decided treat to my mens ice hockey team in NJ to 2 growlers of Heart of Lothian. We have one home brewer and a my brother – a beer snob who gets his fill of German brews during once a month European trips. This went over BIG. I have not been back up since, but will be up this holiday week to get the growlers refilled – and another for a co – worker from Philly who is always on the search for new micro brews. Great addition to the tradition of great VT breweries.

    Hello Steve and Fellow Brewers
    I was lucky to try a pint of your Heart of Lothian this past weekend at The Eatery here in S. Vermont and quickly followed it with a second. I don’t consider myself a connoisseur but let’s just say I’ve sampled a few. Without a doubt this was one of the finest ales I’ve ever had. Keep up the great work and we’ll be sure to drop in on our next trip North.

      Thanks John! Heart of Lothian was one of our original beers and still continues to be a fan favorite. We’re glad you love it so much, it is always available to our accounts and always on tap here at the brewery so you can pick up a growler. Cheers.

      Bob,
      Thanks for your interest in Drop-In, as of now we are a draft only brewery so this means you can only find us on tap at bars and restaurants for pints, of course there are starting to be many “growler bars” now in Vermont where you can find us on tap for growler fills. We have a distributor who sells our beer for us so at any given point its hard for us here to know where its exactly on tap, certain places in Burlington area try to keep a line open for us such as Farmhouse or the Vermont Tap House. We are releasing a barley wine in bottles this weekend, so that’s a packaged product you could pick up. There are plans to put Sunshine and Hoppiness and then Heart of Lothian in 6 pack cans possibly this summer so then we will be available to retail locations and we would have a better idea of where those would be. Other than that, it will be a drive to come here and get growlers sorry. We do have 6-7 beers on tap for growler fills all the time and we’re open 7 days a week.
      Cheers
