SEVEN DAYS

P.O. Box 1164 Burlington, VT 05402 T 802.864.5684 F 802.865.1015 E info@sevendaysvt.com W sevendaysvt.com DISCLAIMER: Though it aims to be accurate and comprehensive, 7 Nights may be missing some restaurants, bars or nightclubs because they declined to participate or did not meet the requirements for inclusion. Don’t look for McDonald’s or Burger King in these pages; 7 Nights is a celebration of indigenous eating and entertainment — not venti-sized chains. If we left out your favorite local place or made a mistake in a listing, email us at sevennights@sevendaysvt.com.

T

en years ago, we rolled out the very first 7 Nights with a festive cover and a nod to the “organic farmers, vintners, artisan bakers, cheese makers and specialty-food producers” who have made Vermont a food-lover’s mecca. 7 Nights was our way of recognizing and celebrating Vermont’s farm-to-fork ethos, an annotated guide to navigating the burgeoning scene. My, how it’s grown. A decade on, our burgs are attracting more talented chefs than ever, and a healthy crop of farmers supply them with fresh veggies, cheeses and meats. An expanding immigrant population is giving Vermonters a taste of the world, from Middle Eastern shish taouk and shirin polo to Korean bibimbap and bulgogi. Each year, we check in with hundreds of restaurant and bar owners across the state as we compile the most up-to-date, comprehensive guide to restaurants and bars in Vermont. A few trends always emerge. This year, one seems to be a proliferation of pizza — high-end pies, that is. In Burlington, we didn’t think it could get any better than American Flatbread. Then Pizzeria Verità came along with delicious Neapolitan pies. New wood-fired pizzerias — some featuring farm-fresh toppings — have also popped up in Waterbury, Woodstock and Bellows Falls. Another trend? Vermont is saucier than ever. There are so many new craft breweries, cider makers, wineries and microdistilleries, we’ve doubled the size of that section — it begins on page 132 with a spotlight on Citizen Cider, the entrepreneurial Essex company that is helping revive New England’s long-dormant hard-cider tradition. Hot spots come and go — and we’re not just talking restaurants. After bouncing back from Tropical Storm Irene, Waterbury is getting national ink as a watering hole for hard-core craft-beer drinkers; hard-to-find Heady Topper and beers from Hill Farmstead Brewery can be found around town. Tucked up in the Northeast Kingdom, Newport is becoming a culinary destination thanks to Jay Peak Resort’s expansion. Seven Days readers get a steady diet of such food news, but they may not realize that a lot of the intel comes from users of 7 Nights online, a virtual space where diners post reviews of their eating experiences at any time of day or night. Check it out online at www.7nvt.com. A decade ago, 500 establishments had annotated listings in 7 Nights; this edition offers more than 900 places to choose from. Now more than ever, Vermont is an unparalleled place to nibble, sip and explore. Dig in.

Don’t forget: More than 100 eateries are participating in the fourth annual VERMONT REsTaURaNT WEEk from April 26 to May 5, 2013. It’s the perfect opportunity to check out that place you’ve been meaning to try — from Burlington to Rutland, Newport to the Upper Valley. With multicourse, prix-fixe menus priced at $15, $25 and $35, there’s something for every taste and budget — so hit the road and raise a glass to spring, Vermont’s bounty and a new edition of 7 Nights.

crop bistro & brewery 1859 Mountain Rd., Stowe, 253-4765

AAA Four Diamond Distinction “Best of New England” – Boston Magazine “Solstice offers a true feast for all the senses” – Where to Eat Magazine

Brewing has long been a tradition at 1859 Mountain Road; an après-ski pub called the Shed began making ale here in the 1960s. Rather than leave that legacy behind, the crew at Crop Bistro & Brewery built on it: Using an innovative copper-clad brewing system from Bavaria, head brewer Will Gilson turns out flavorful and crisp German-style beers that perfectly accompany this eatery’s upscale, locally sourced pub food. A flagstone fireplace and dramatic circular bar lend elegance to the dining room, where it’s more about the wildly original cocktails. The “Mr. Figgy,” for example, is bourbon, house fig reduction and rosemary needles garnished with a glistening piece of maple-cured bacon — served in a martini glass. Photos: jeb wallace-brodeur

Dining in the midst of nature... and the height of luxury. Imagine a place where the food is both refined and casual; where it becomes not just a meal, but an experience. Where the ingredients come from the surrounding area, exceptionally fresh, natural, and in many cases, organic. Where each course is crafted for your benefit. There is such a place at Solstice, Chef Josh Berry’s intriguing artisaninspired restaurant at Stowe Mountain Lodge, located in the heart of the Stowe Mountain Resort community. Make your reservations today!

For reservations, please call 802-760-4735 or visit us on Opentable.com. Complimentary valet parking available. Stowe Mountain Lodge - 7412 Mountain Road - Stowe, Vermont 05672 A distinctive experience provided by Destination Hotels & Resorts.

The libations don’t outshine the food at Crop, though. A backyard garden yields tomatoes and other veggies for buoyant salads. When he’s not using the restaurant’s own produce, chef Tom Bivins — former longtime executive chef at the New England Culinary Institute — taps nearby farms to create dishes such as sumptuous egg-and-pork-belly cracklins over mustardy frisée. Local lamb and duck find a home in his New England bean pot, and wildcrafter friends bring the kitchen woodsgathered Jerusalem artichokes for a bisque. The local, grass-fed burger is a juicy masterpiece. Not all of the food is Vermont-grown, and that’s a good thing: Broiled Massachusetts oysters topped with lemon butter are delicate, silky pieces of heaven. corin hirsch

“Two years ago I was working as a waitress at Buffalo Wild Wings and was I-Spied by my now husband. At the time he didn’t have the courage to ask for my number, so he wrote an I-Spy and one of my co-workers told me about it. We met at Vermont Pub & Brewery for our first date and the rest is history. If it wasn’t for this website, I may have never met him!” — Andrea Haas

Live Consciously. Eat Deliciously.

When Panera began, we decided to get up every day and bake fresh bread from fresh dough in every bakery cafÊ. That decision made us wonder‌What else could we do the right way? So we talked to our farmers and our chefs and asked how we could make food that lives up to our bread. And could it be food you can trust, with ingredients like antibiotic-free chicken? Then each night, when we close our doors, could we come come together as a community and help feed people in need? And could we start this all with a humble loaf of bread? We already have. And every morning we start again. Burlington 37 Church St

SMALL LOCAL FAMILY FARMS PRODUCING BIG FRESH TASTY GOODNESS

brown’s market bistro 1261 Scott Hwy., Groton, 584-4124

At first glance, not much appears to be going on in sleepy Groton, population 1022. There’s a church, a green, a few houses and a creemee window. Slow down, though, and you’ll notice that the creemee window is connected to a “meadery,” and across the street, there’s an eatery called Brown’s Market Bistro. People may associate Groton with its pristine forests, but this village quietly harbors a rich coterie of food professionals — among them, Brown’s chef, Zachary Reid, a native Hawaiian who migrated here to learn about Vermont’s famed farmto-table fare. With so few potential customers in the area, Reid needs to be versatile. While he presides over a blazing oven that turns out cheesy, thin-crust pizzas to go, the chef also creates eclectic, big-flavor dishes for the bistro, a cozy dining room adorned with lace curtains and flower-topped tables.

SMART SUSTAINABLE TRADITIONS FRESH WEEKLY SELECTIONS INSPIRED DAILY SPECIALS

3/13/13 4:02 PM

Crisp risotto “beignets” are slathered in a sweet, roasted-red-pepper marinara sauce, then drizzled with a balsamic reduction that brings them to life. French fries are amped up with truffle oil. Confit duck tacos, almost too large and intense to eat in one sitting, are three crispy shells stuffed with sriracha-spiked meat, gingerand-balsamic-laced slaw and Grafton Village Cheese Company smoked cheddar. No rural Vermont restaurant can survive without a burger on the menu. At Brown’s, it’s not “Zachary’s” burger but “Vinny’s”: PT Farm beef piled high with crispy bacon, a roasted portobello mushroom cap, fig-balsamic caramelized onions and the cheese of your choice. Don’t be shy about asking for a doggie bag. The request just might precipitate a tableside visit from the gregarious Reid, bearing complimentary crème brûlée. corin hirsch

Exquisite Rooms FineDining

cloudland farm

1101 Cloudland Rd., North Pomfret, 457-2599 The experience of eating at Cloudland Farm starts 10 minutes before you get there; that’s about how long it takes to negotiate the dirt road from nearby Woodstock as it wends past pine woods and cow-dotted fields to a pastoral farm that serves amazing dinners twice a week. What you see is what you eat: Black Angus cattle, Berkshire pigs, and chickens and turkeys roam freely on the 1000-acre farm, “where they can scratch and peck about in the green grass to their heart’s content,” according to owners Bill and Cathy Emmons. Almost everything that emerges from chef Nick Mahood’s kitchen was raised there — squashes, pork, lettuces — or made from scratch. Dinner is served inside a modern post-and-beam barn harvested from the farm’s own pine forests. Soaring ceilings and a fieldstone fireplace create the perfect ambience, whether it’s for Thursday’s family-style evening meal or the three-course, prix-fixe menu on Saturday night.

Summer, winter, it doesn’t matter; Cloudland’s chef manages to “cook local” regardless of the season. In late fall, razor-thin beets are topped with crumbles of tangy local chèvre and a drizzle of sticky balsamic reduction for an exquisite beet carpaccio. Over seared strip steak, the chef spoons garlicky melted butter, a moody red-wine sauce and foamy celeriac purée. Compelling as the savory courses are, you must leave room for dessert. If you think warm chocolate cake is simple, think again: In chef Mahood’s hands, it’s an oozing symphony of ganache, dark-chocolate crumbles, bourbon-tinged caramel and a featherlight cocoa-nib tuile so delicately rendered you won’t want to destroy it with your fork. There’s one thing the farm doesn’t make (or serve) on the premises: alcoholic beverages. That means BYOB — you can buy it in Woodstock on the way. Nothing worse than getting all the way to Cloudland — it sounds as far as it feels — only to discover you’ve forgotten the wine. CORIN HIRSCH

WOOD FIRED PIZZA

Tomatoes#2.indd 1

62 Country Club Rd., Brandon, 465-4071

Americans welcomed the British Invasion with full-throated enthusiasm, but they’ve been a little more standoffish about English food. The two come together harmoniously in an unlikely venue — a Brandon barn once owned by artist Warren Kimble and now operating as a performance space, tearoom and restaurant. Classical and jazz concerts are held regularly at the world headquarters of the Divine Art Recordings Group, under the direction of co-owner Stephen Sutton. Even when no one is playing live, music from the label’s artists fills the room. At lunchtime, you might hear composer Paul Mealor’s Now Sleeps the Crimson Petal, of royal wedding fame: It played at the nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Or the The Finck Album, named for Herman Finck, a composer of English music-hall hits in the 1910s and ’20s. PHOtOS: vytO StarinSkaS

FRESH LOCAL SPECIALS ITALIAN INSPIRED CREATIONS

brandon music café

3/13/13 4:05 PM

Whatever the accompaniment, chef Donna Towle’s food takes center stage. Edna Sutton, who owns the café with husband Stephen, carefully trained the American chef to prepare her native English fare. While some customers order Towle’s award-winning chili, those in the know sip potato-leek soup. Or they may prefer to start their meal with a walnut-and-blue-cheese tartlet. A light custard packs a fermented wallop of Stilton amid creamy, eggy delights housed in a flaky piecrust. Savory pies are a specialty here, too. A steak-and-ale version is richly flavored with Guinness and topped with buttery puff pastry. A banger pie is stuffed with lightly spiced sausage meat and served with creamy mashed potatoes and red-wine gravy. Contrary to American expectations for British fare, each of the pies comes with a fresh salad, served with a trio of homemade dressings. The raspberry vinaigrette pops with unbroken chunks of pulp, while the balsamic vinaigrette is flecked with fresh herbs. Add a pot of bracing Assam tea and the sound of bow strokes, and it’s the next-best thing to supper at “Downton Abbey.” alice levitt

221 Main St., Vergennes, 877-2772

Innovative American Cuisine Seasonal Outdoor Dining On the Banks of The Otter Creek

Mom makes a mean French toast and some tasty sandwiches. But what if a top-flight chef were cooking the same homey classics? Matt Birong turns that rhetorical question into a delicious reality at 3 Squares Café. The New England Culinary Institute-trained Essex native honed his skills at New York’s Rainbow Room and Boston’s Aquitaine before he found himself in the kitchen at Burlington’s greatly missed Waiting Room. In 2007, Birong left “fine dining” to open his own cozy café in the “smallest city in the USA” Since then, Vergennes has been lucky enough to have a chef cooking its breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The spoils for the small town include ideally executed, whimsical takes on standard American fare. Imagine a crusty French dip sandwich, complete with sweet caramelized onions and Gruyère. Then add shaved elk and elk jus. Birong says that his wife, Danelle, who carries the title of “cheerleader and taster,” is a big fan of his occasional special, Italian-inflected eggs Benedict. It starts with a chewy homemade English muffin that serves as a perfect pedestal for salty prosciutto di Parma, a poached egg and pesto-speckled hollandaise, all drizzled with a balsamic reduction. Oven-roasted tomatoes, topped with a shower of roughly chopped garlic, lend an acidic sweetness that illuminates the creamy, yolky proceedings like a klieg light. Each spring during Vermont Restaurant Week, Birong pulls out all the stops with special dishes that hark back to the celebrated kitchens whence he came. Last year, a Parisian bistro dinner featured luscious cassoulet and a braised short rib that would have made French chef Auguste Escoffier proud. Another year, a lightly spiced Mexican-chocolate torte was a satisfying end to a meal that included ancho-rubbed pork tenderloin with plantain cakes and jicama-pepper slaw. Bring Mom. She’ll love it. alice levitt

The Common man ResTauRanT

3209 German Flats Rd., Warren, 583-2800 There’s a rustic elegance about the 1850s barn that houses the Common Man Restaurant in Warren, less than a mile from the slopes of Sugarbush Resort. Crystal chandeliers adorn the dining room, casting flecks of light on the dark wood ceiling beams like stars in the winter sky. Chef Adam Longworth’s upscale après-ski cuisine likewise plays on visually arresting contrasts. Salad, served in a wooden bowl, is a thick strip of cracked wheat and local goat feta atop a festive mix of green beans, thin red radish slices and herbs. phoTos: jEb wALLACE-brodEur

A fairy-tale forest of pink-and-green vegetation is actually fluke crudo. In a citrus bath, the fresh catch from Vermont’s Wood Mountain Fish comes with orange segments, dollops of puréed avocado and tart grapefruit pearls. Everything tastes as good as it looks. Credit for the stellar fare goes to the pair behind Common Man — and their pedigrees. When Longworth and his life and business partner, Lorien Wroten, purchased the Common Man at the end of 2011, both worked at renowned New York City restaurants. Celebrity chef Alfred Portale made Longworth his chef de cuisine at Gotham Bar and Grill when the Vermonter was just 24. Wroten developed her scrupulous attention to detail as general manager at Barbuto, under the direction of famed chef and owner Jonathan Waxman. Longworth’s cerebral cuisine is a far cry from the cassoulet-and-boeuf bourguignon fare that once weighed down the Common Man’s menu. But the current chef is not afraid of hearty dishes, either. Take the rack of lamb, served over a central-Asian-style pilaf with yogurt sauce and golden-raisin chutney in a curried jus. It’s as comforting as Longworth’s housemade orecchiette with duck sausage and meatballs. A long day on the mountain justifies dessert: Straight from the oven, chocolate cake is warm, moist and rich in the energy every skier needs to hit the slopes the next day. ALICE LEVITT

salt

207 Barre St., Montpelier, 229-6678 You don’t have to be a fan of J.R.R. Tolkien to love the hamachi tartare at Salt. But restaurant owner Suzanne Podhaizer hoped savvy diners would be hip to to the reference on her Middle Earth menu to his Gollum character, who lives for raw fish. In this case, it was flavored with mustard and capers on a crispy nest of fried potato and topped with a single quail egg. All that might have made the tartare too gourmet for Gollum, but it was perfect for human diners settling in for a cozy, literary meal. Dominated by a shelf full of cookbooks, the 16-seat dining room at Salt may feel like a hobbit hole, but the Tolkien-themed menu was a rare affair, offered for just three weeks. Podhaizer changes up the food offerings for maximum seasonality and to keep regular diners — who might tire of the same menu — coming back. phoTos: jEb wALLACE-brodEur

BURLINGTON: (802) 540-0188 | MONTPELIER (802) 262-CAKE BURLINGTON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

Since she opened the intimate restaurant in 2010, the former Seven Days food editor has cooked up dozens of themed dinner dishes, such as an all-red menu to coincide with Valentine’s Day — chilled lettuce soup and Madeira-braised pork shoulder graced a meal that might have been served at Monticello. Another, inspired by Alice in Wonderland, included a white-rabbit confit with apricot chutney. But the restaurateur behind the whimsical dishes is grounded by her firm commitment to local agriculture. Last year, Podhaizer began cultivating her own small farm in Marshfield to supply the restaurant, growing herbs, veggies and some rarely seen ingredients. Epazote was featured on a South-of-the-Border menu, shiso on a Japanese one. For the latter meal, Podhaizer tried a touch of culinary alchemy, flavoring kale to stand in for seaweed in a miso soup. International techniques inform even the most homegrown of Salt’s dishes. The American Comfort Food menu, for instance, included Shanghai-style soup dumplings filled not with the classic pork and scallions, but with chicken noodle soup.

“Some of the best fusion sushi you are

going to find anywhere on the planet. Try the T-2 maki or Tango maki or the alligator maki or the spicy scallop hand roll or the... oh my gosh I have a serious case of Pavlov’s dog. This is our Friday night haunt and I dream about their perfect martinis, edamame and sushi. Transport this gem to any major city and it will compete with the best. If your travels take you to Burlington, and you love Sushi, go here!!!!” —Dave Demers Asiana House regular for nine years.

firebird café

163 Pearl St., Essex Junction, 316-4265 Vermont feels a long way from California — except at Essex Junction’s Firebird Café. There, owner Jake Tran ensures that even on the gloomiest days, customers can get a taste of his sunny home state. Firebird is a casual spot where diners order at the counter from one of a multiethnic crew of young staffers. Finding a table may require some patience, but it’s worth waiting for a seat in the bright, airy dining room adorned with avian sculptures and antique bird cages. Tran says he “learned his flavor profiles” at mom-and-pop Mexican joints back in Santa Cruz, and there is nothing Green Mountain about his salsa verde. The seed-filled concoction PHOTOS: MATTHEW THORSEN

explodes with a punch of tangy, salty, umami splendor. It’s best over the tender, citrus-spiked carnitas burrito. Or try the beef or chicken in a tomato-based sauce with smoky chipotle peppers. The slow burn builds throughout the meal, intensifying with each bite. For those looking for a taste more Vermont than Santa Cruz, there are panini and wraps with fresh, homemade chutneys. Breakfast is available all day at this laid-back eatery — Tran doesn’t put away the eggs at noon. French toast made with multigrain or sourdough bread comes with grilled bananas. For those unafraid of a caloric splurge, the croissant version is a must. Two croissants are split into four halves, dipped in cinnamony custard and cooked on a griddle. The outside of the flaky pastry retains its crispness, while the custard filling each nook and cranny tastes like a cross between breakfast and dessert. The only thing that can make the dish more indulgent is a cup of Firebird’s hot chocolate, made with foamy steamed milk and semisweet chocolate chips. It’s hot stuff, this “fusion” food bridging East and West coasts. ALICE LEVITT

Proud member of...

147 N. Winooski Ave., Burlington, 540-3093 You don’t have to be able to pronounce “kashk bademjan” to appreciate the bold flavors and exotic aromas of the garlic-laden eggplant appetizer from Iran. Farah Oberlender prepares it and many other Persian specialties at her namesake restaurant in the heart of Burlington’s Old North End. Fans of other Middle Eastern cuisines — and even Indian food — will find more familiar choices at Farah’s Place: hummus, falafel and long-marinated kebabs. Still, the preparations are not only distinctly Persian, they’re uniquely Oberlender’s. PHOtOS: MattHeW tHORSeN

Working with over 30 local farmers & food producers.

farah’s place

BURLINGTON: (802) 540-0188 | MONTPELIER (802) 262-CAKE BURLINGTON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

That hummus crackles with spicy garlic and is showered with tart, purple sumac. The falafel, molded into flat pucks rather than balls, is sweet and herbaceous. The range of kabobs includes a ground-meat variety called koobideh, as well as spicy chicken thighs and yogurt-marinated breasts. They’re all served over basmati rice; for $1.50 extra, you can get the shirin polo with barberries and candied orange peels for a sweet and tangy flavor explosion. Then there are the dishes that defy translation. A stew called fesenjan features lamb or chicken slowly braised in a sauce of pomegranate and ground walnuts. From the first bite of tahchin, the ultimate Iranian comfort food, diners will feel as if they were weaned on the rice casserole. With the exception of butter-poached barberries, there’s nothing in the recipe that might shock the American palate: Oberlender needs little more than chicken, yogurt, eggs and rice to create the magical dish. Despite the far-flung origins of both the chef and her recipes, Farah’s food is anything but foreign. Many of the ingredients come from local farms, including tender lamb from Morrisville’s Winding Brook Farm; the beef in her comforting kofta meatballs comes from Bill Hill Farm in East Hardwick. The fare is fit for a shah, but the casual surroundings are more like home. Nearly every table has plates with a different pattern, and, more likely than not, Oberlender or her husband, Jeffrey, is filling your water glass. After all, it is Farah’s place. alice levitt

solo farm & table

95 Middletown Rd., South Londonderry, 824-6327 SoLo is a place for both bow ties and beer drinkin’. That’s the eclectic mix Chloe and Wesley Genovart had in mind when they came to Vermont from New York City to renovate a rambling colonial house into the restaurant of their dreams. By then, both had formidable kitchen credentials — he as a chef; she as a maître d’ — that also happened to be perfectly complementary. So the couple painted bright colors inside and out, planted raised beds full of herbs and veggies, and put together an imaginative, seasonal menu that pairs local food with chef Wesley Genovart’s exacting technique. Just about a year after SoLo Farm & Table opened in the summer of 2011, Bon Appètit magazine selected it as one of the 50 best new restaurants in America — the only Vermont eatery to make the list. PHoTos: saraH PriesTaP

When the dishes arrive, it’s clear why: Genovart’s global approach to gastronomy. Though the chef is a native of Spain, his food exudes a crisp, almost Asian sensibility. A soy-lime mignonette accompanies the fresh Maine oysters. A bowl of gazpacho is delicately presented with paper-thin radishes, dill fronds, tiny pink flowers and crumbled, crispy jamón — the result is sort of like a liquified August farm. For a summer salad, Genovart scatters spicy greens around tempura zucchini and half of a poached quail egg, drizzles it all with grape reduction and smears housemade ricotta cheese across the plate. The same original approach enlivens his bigger dishes: The ricotta appears with shards of pink rabbit confit, henof-the-woods mushrooms and edamame atop floppy, fresh pappardelle. A server pours warm, briny fish fumet over seared sturgeon filet. And a duo of seared, herb-crusted quail oozes its juices onto a bed of bright-green, herbladen quinoa. It’s a feast for the eyes as well as the tongue, served in a setting so cheerful you won’t want to leave. And you don’t have to. Have one last drink at the bar, where a dizzying variety of wines, craft beers and American hard ciders awaits. Corin HirsCH

Citizen Cider

6D Laurette Dr., Essex, 448-3278

Next steps?

For years, hard cider was the awkward little sister of craft beer — especially in Vermont, a state with more breweries per capita than any other. No longer: A handful of farms and companies are reviving Vermont’s centuries-old cidermaking tradition, turning out sparkling, hard and ice ciders that run the gamut from slightly sweet to bone dry. Citizen Cider has the goods — and an underground party every Friday night that feels like something out of the Prohibition era. It’s not easy to locate the place in the maze of Fort Ethan Allen. But those in the know push open a heavy wooden door at the back of the building to find an aromatic room that hosts plastic tanks full of fermenting apple juice and shoulder-to-shoulder people holding tulip-shaped glasses of cider.

Eat off local plates, drink from local mugs, bake with local pans! W E

The shindig goes down in the very same converted grain warehouse where three friends 3:48 PM — a wine retailer, a farmer and a chemist — began making cider two years ago, using a salvaged 1950s apple press and fruit from Middlebury’s Happy Valley Orchard. Their original aim was to create a drink that fused the best qualities of Champagne and slightly effervescent Vinho Verde. The result was the inaugural 5000-gallon batch of fizzy, golden Unified Press, Citizen’s signature cider. Kris Nelson, Bryan Holmes and Justin Heilenbach have all quit their day jobs to tend to the business of shipping Unified Press to meet the growing demand all over Vermont. They’ve added a cider fermented with blueberries, another with cranberries and still another, dry-hopped. All of the varieties are at the Friday night parties, where cider flows freely behind a long wooden bar, and broadcasters from nearby Vermont Public Radio mingle with St. Michael’s College students. Those 21 and over, that is. This stuff isn’t apple juice. Corin HirsCH
