Foam Brewers

Head down to the lake to sip some of the Queen City’s best suds.

By Molly McDonough

Burlington is blessed with a beautiful waterfront. The high peaks of the Adirondack Mountains tower over Lake Champlain, turning blue and purple as the sun sets behind them. And after strolling along those lakeside paths—a must during your Burlington visit—there’s no better spot to step into than Foam Brewers. With an open, airy setting in a historic brick building (and a terrace out front with its own smaller summertime bar), this brewery has the essentials: beer, coffee, and cheese-and-charcuterie plates. Expect hazy IPAs and funky sours, with curious ingredients like lychee, coconut cream, and lactose—plus tasting notes like SweeTART and dank. Check the website for a calendar of events and food trucks, plus upcoming can releases to plan your haul back home.
