In the town of Brattleboro, Vermont, you'll find all sorts of quaint shops. It's quintessential New England. Once you've worked up an appetite from shopping, save room for craft beer and comfort food at its best at the new Whetstone Station Restaurant & Brewery.

You don't get more Vermont than this place. Whetstone is right on the waterfront with beautiful outdoor views no matter where you sit. There's also a roaring fireplace in the middle of the restaurant, which is perfect during the chilly winter months.

The food at Whetstone just couldn't be any better. I had a grilled cheese & bacon with fries for lunch. This was no ordinary grilled cheese. It was stuffed full of bacon, Vermont cheddar cheese and cream cheese. Cream cheese! So good. Somehow, I still had room for dessert, so I ordered the "46 Carat," that delicious slice of carrot cake with cream cheese frosting pictured below.
There's something for everyone on their menu. Hearty burgers, mac & cheese, scallops, salmon and plenty of vegetarian options. They also serve up a cheddar ale soup with Vermont Grafton cheddar cheese and Switchback Ale, which I'm dying to try next time.

Ahh, ale. That brings us to their drink menu. There are cocktails and wine, but it's their beer that's putting Whetstone Station on the map. They offer an extensive menu of local craft beers. From Narragansett to their exclusive Whetstone Cider Works, there are a variety of craft beers on tap and in bottles. They even have several types of gluten free beers. This spring, Whetstone is promising something extra special. They are launching their own in house nano-brewery.

If you're ever anywhere new Brattleboro, Vermont, do yourself a favor and stop in for lunch or dinner at Whetstone Station. It's an Eat Up New England Favorite and will be one of your favorites, too!
