Zero Gravity Craft Brewery at American Flatbread Burlington Hearth, Burlington Vermont

IMG_0799  IMG_0800We visited Zero Gravity Craft Brewery at American Flatbread Burlington Hearth, located in Burlington Vermont before we headed home from our visit to John & Lindsay’s.
American Flatbread is a delicious pizza restaurant, which houses Zero Gravity Brewery.IMG_0808IMG_0806 IMG_0807 menuIMG_0814pizza oven

There was not a sampler tray, so we ordered 10 oz beers. We picked the more interesting sounding, less traditional flavors or styles of beer. The waitress was good and told us the hops from the stout would kill the flavor of the gruit, so we had the gruit first.

No back end taste, all up front. It was smooth and flavorful with low carbonation, drinkable. Megan is a fan of gruits in general because you get good flavor but not that heavy hop flavor.

Sounded like an interesting beer, and it was. It was light and smooth, not too hoppy for a stout. It smelled like a stout and was a dark color like a stout, but fairly smooth. Sour aftertaste. Megan thought it tasted like sour chocolate.

 

Conehead IPA 5.7%

Megan thought it was a typical IPA, she is not really a big fan of IPA’s. Mark liked it, extra hoppy. You definitely get the wheat flavor which gives the IPA a different twist.

The service was good overall.  Not the experience we usually have eating out in Vermont. The waitress we had was good. They have a lot of wait staff for the amount of tables, although it was not a real big place.

Some history:

American Flatbread Burlington Hearth opened in 2004, and they started brewing their own beer that same year. They built their own dome oven to wood fire the pizza. They started out with a 10 barrel system. Beer and bread making go together, and have, for more than 5000 years. They have an ‘unwavering commitment’ to staying true to the classic styles of a beer, which includes using the best ingredients possible. This doesn’t mean they can’t experiment, though. In 2012 they started selling beer offsite. Now they are looking to build a new brewery offsite to keep up with demand. Want to visit? Open every day 11:30 to close.
