Perched above the Connecticut River, you will find Whetstone Station, a fairly new tap house and nano brewery. I rode out there for lunch with a friend on a cold day this past November and the place was jamming (so get there early). They offer a sweet flight shaped like Vermont that features the one house-brewed beer on tap at that time plus your choice of any four guest beers they are pouring. Great beer + great view + great food!
Update (6/7/14): Rode out to Brattleboro for lunch and a flight, and this time Whetstone had 3 of their own beers in the sampler! They also had the outdoor seating rocking and all of the windows behind the bar open so it was glorious sitting there.
Here are the original post pics:
I definitely need to take some photos of the inside and outside next time!
