Have you had the pleasure of visiting Goodwater Brewery? If not, do yourself a favor, rally your friends and check this place out! Located at 740 Marshall Ave in Williston, Vermont, this brewery has everything you need: Amazing locally crafted beer, friendly staff, a cozy atmosphere, snacks, and air conditioning! What more could you possibly want?
We had the pleasure of chatting with co-owner Chris Capetz (pictured below), one Friday afternoon, to take photos of their amazing new space, and tour the brewery. Upon greeting us, we were immediately handed a beer, now that’s service!
Chris handed Topher, Goodwater’s “InspiRED” (Irish Red Ale), a slightly malty, balanced beer, that’s clean, smooth and has moderate carbonation. I opted for the sampler which includes their four beers: The Proper Mild – a classic English style ale, Sweet Winter Brown – a medium bodied brown ale, InspiRED – the easy drinking Irish style red ale & the Hoppy Side of Pale – a smooth drinking full bodied pale ale.
All of Goodwater’s beers are fantastic! It was really hard to choose a favorite. But there was just something so fresh and delicious about that Proper Mild, I couldn’t resist getting a pint for myself. Just look at that beer…!
I paired my Proper Mild with a Goodwater housemade pretzel that also happens to have their logo incorporated into the design. How cool is that?
After we enjoyed our beers, Chris took us on a tour of the brewery.
We love how you can see inside of the brewery from the bar.
Just look at those beauties…
Where the magic happens…
The tools to help produce the sweet nectar…
