Simple Roots is a new brewery located in a residential neighborhood in Burlington Vermont. Because they are in a residential neighborhood the brewery is not open to visits from the public and you cannot purchase beer there. They sell at a couple of local bottle shops and farmer’s markets. You can check out their FB page below for more info on when and where they will be.
Their goal is to brew beer to style more so than trying to keep up with the ultra hoppy beer that many Vermont brewers are making. The first beer I tried from them is American Dream their cream style ale. This beer pours a pale orange with a nice white head. Aroma is pretty minimal but about what I expected from a cream ale.
Taste was light crisp and very similar to a lager. Light body, almost no hop bitterness but very refreshing. Really enjoyable beer and a style that few are making. If you find yourself in Burlington this summer track down a bottle of American Dream.
Pros: Drinkable and true to style
Alcohol Content: 4.2% ABV
