Local to VT here - Stowe's passthrough to the notch is closed all winter, but if you're going to Smuggler's Notch, or willing to drive, the staff loves (and can be found in masses) at Stella Notte and The Brewski. Hell, I love them too. Great music, worth the reverse drive - from Burlington to Jeffersonville - just for the company. Stowe area, Rusty Nail is good (or was, long ago.) In Waterbury (which is right nearby) the Alchemist is a local favorite as well, with amazing beers on tap. Arvad's used to be the bomb, but I was not impressed lately with their miserable version of a Hot Toddy last time I was there.
