Lunch recs between Burlington airport and Stowe, VT

Chow-hound from Florida landing mid-day and want to have an interesting lunch along this route.
American fare, Italian or bar food would be fine. Outdoor seating preferred but not critical. Thanks

  1. Drive 89 to Waterbury and enjoy pub grub and Heady Topper beer at the Alchemist, said by many to be the best beer in America. Then it's an easy and pretty ride up Rt 100 to Stowe.

      Actually, Veggo, The Alchemist is no longer there. It's now Prohibition Pig. However, The Alchemist is still brewing, and Heady Topper is still available at Prohibition Pig, and it's still a really good restaurant. :)

      There's also the Blue Stone Pizza Place on Stowe St. in Waterbury.

        I would second the Prohibition Pig for solid pub-grub and a great selection of beers. They serve beer from Hill Farmstead as well as Lawson's; both are fantastic local brews. The Alchemist Cannery is worthwhile stop to taste and purchase cans of Heady Topper. I suggest going early in the week to the cannery if you want a chance to purchase any cans.

          Prohibition Pig is great but only open for lunch Fri-Sun.

          If you want something closer to Burlington Airport Chef's Corner in Williston is good.

            Wonderful baked goods at Chef's Corner.

      Get in tomorrow and cant wait for cooler weather .... and mountains.
