About Us:

Burlington Beer Company is an independent craft brewery that has been open since May 2014. We strive to find a balance between going too far and staying rooted in tradition. We brew a wide range of hazy, hop-forward Pale Ale, IPA's, Double IPA's, and Triple IPA's. We also brew a plethora of fruit beers, some tart ones, some hoppy ones, and some easy-drinking ones. In addition, we also love brewing dark beers - Brown Ale's, Porter's, Oatmeal Stout, Double Stout's, and Imperial Stouts. Each of our beers has a mind-melting name and inspired artwork to match. We brew with local and international malts, hops, yeast, fruit, vegetables, spices, and herbs, while also exploring new ways to put our stamp on classic beer styles. Our beers are available in 16 states throughout New England & Mid-Atlantic.

While brewed, packaged, and distributed out of Williston, our Flynn Avenue location houses a sour barrel program packaged in Burlington. We strive to incorporate local food, exciting new beers, and all things beautiful Burlington has to offer to both tourists and locals alike.

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, genetic information, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions, age, disability status, uniform service member status; or any other class protected under federal, state, or local law.
