Tomorrow, April 30, 2011 from 3pm to 10pm Montpelier will be host to it’s second annual Montbeerlier Beer Festival. Unfortunately I will have to be in class. To make matters worse, the group of windows in the restaurant will overlook the parking lot that the event will take place, so while everyone is out there drinking amazing beers and eating awesome in house made sausages hot off the grill, I will be peering out the window like a little kid grounded watching all of his friends play.

Anyway, Three Penny Taproom will be putting this even on in the Onion River Sports parking lot on Langdon St in downtown Montpelier. They will have 23 casks, in house made sausage, and plenty of nice kegs. Here is a list of some the casks to be enjoyed.

Three Penny Taproom

There is a small gem cozilly nestled in the heart of Montpelier Vermont.  It is probably one of my favorite places in town. Three Penny Taproom currently has 24 different craft beers on tap and 68 craft beers in bottles. They usually tap a cask every Thursday. Yea sure they have liquor and wine but with all those lovely beers who really gives a shit!? Three Penny is a small little joint that is a perfect spot for a soccer game, you couldn’t even move when America got beat last year by Ghana. With great charcuterie and awesome sandwiches (and sometimes oysters!!) this place is a craft beer lover and foodie paradise. In fact the Boston Globe coined it “A craft beer mecca”. Look for them in Draft Magazine’s top 100 beer bars in America.

Walking into Three Penny there is a long bar to your right and a long table coming out of the wall with stools to your right.  Behind the bar you see 3 chalk boards with whats on tap.

There is always a good time to be had at Three Penny,  and good brew to be had as well.
