Brewing in Burlington Part 2
Prohibition hit Vermont in the 1850s, much earlier than Federal Prohibition. Then, Vermont went wet again in 1903 and then dry again in 1920. From 1933, when Prohibition ended, until 1988, Burlington was without a brewery. Vermont Pub and Brewery opened in Burlington in 1988 and became a training and proving ground for brewers and other interested parties.
