Vermont has an incredible, trail-blazing craft cider movement. Citizen Cider has been leading the American cider revolution since 2011 and their tasting room in Burlington is the best hang. Eat cheese, drink cider and explore Burlington's Pine Street on this trail.
Located in Burlington, Vermont, Switchback Brewing Company was founded in 2002 by a formally trained master brewer and his friend. The vision was to concentrate limited resources into making just a few beers to achieve the highest quality possible.
The success of Switchback Ale beer has driven constant expansion for over 10 years and made the release of three Rotating Specials possible; Roasted Red Ale, Porter, and Slow-Fermented Brown Ale.
Visit our new tasting room located at the brewery to try a sample of our latests offerings and purchase merchandise.
In 2012 we began distributing Zero Gravity for off-premise sales, and two years later we had maxed out the production at the Flatbread Brewpub. Needing more space we found a beautiful location in Burlington’s South End Arts District, and in the spring of 2015, the Pine Street brewery came to be.
A 30-barrel brew house, full canning line, tasting room, retail shop and a sun-drenched beer garden make this spot a premier destination for beer travelers and regulars alike. This location will also house our barrel aging program and will allow us to make styles that we previously did not have the space to attempt.
