The Parlor was created as an oasis for beer enthusiasts. Designed with a speakeasy format in mind, the Parlor is warm, inviting, and begs you to cozy up to the fireplace. The Parlor is available for private event bookings at certain times of the year.

  • Completely private space, separate from the main dining area
  • Brick-lined fireplace warms the room during the cooler months
  • Accommodates up to 70 guests for a cocktail party
  • Sound system can be controlled separately to cater to guests’ musical preferences
  • The Parlor is a below ground, basement space, and is accessible only from the staircase in the restaurant’s main entrance area.

Although often requested, our outdoor Beer Garden space is not available for private events. Mother nature makes it far too difficult for our staff to plan for outdoor private events that are booked in advance.

The Farmhouse Tap & Grill offers an ever-rotating selection of 30 taps featuring many Vermont breweries such as Hill Farmstead, Lawson’s Finest Liquids, Lost Nation, Trapp and more. Or choose selections from our 150+ bottle program. We offer classic cocktails such as the Old Fashioned Whiskey Cocktail and Manhattans, plus house originals like Mayfly and Elder Law. And an excellent by-the-glass wine program. You may choose to have a hosted bar in which all beverages are added to the host’s check, a cash bar in which guests pay for their own beverages individually, a combination, or ticketed bar set up. We are happy to customize a bar program that works for your individual needs.
