We’ve got a new place to go! An incredible Vermont brewery & restaurant opens in Brattleboro! As innkeepers at the Chesterfield Inn, a stunning New Hampshire Bed and Breakfast who have lived here for 25 years, we are always very excited to when a new restaurant opens nearby.
Whetstone Station, owned by our friends Tim and Amy Brady and David Hiler, opened in early July. They serve 14 local and regional craft beers, have an affordable yet inspiring menu, and have incredible views. So far, only the upper deck is open for fair weather, but with the hot dry summer that we’ve had, that has worked perfectly.
Whetstone Station is a restaurant and brewery, and sits right on the banks of the Connecticut River in downtown Brattleboro. The deck has a big bar, and lots of tables with umbrellas. We were there on a warm summer night, and enjoyed the gorgeous view of the river, as we sipped our drinks. Many rave about the huge local and craft beer selection, the many interesting wines by the glass, and the full bar with frozen margaritas. There is something for everyone!
As of August 6th they will be open 7 days a week from 11:30am till at least 10pm (later on weekends) with a full menu.
We enjoyed our dinner, sampling the Surf and Turf Satays, Crispy Brie, Whetstone Wedge Salad, the Mahi Mahi Tacos, and the Beer Braised Short Ribs. The food was fresh, flavorful, and made with local ingredients. Service was attentive and pleasant. It was a terrific night out and we can’t wait to go back!
