On the corner of Pearl and Winooski in downtown Burlington was the site of the first brewery in Burlington circa 1800. It supplied calories and nutrition to the local UVM students and was considered a necessary food product. When Vermont went dry, Burlington was without a brewery for almost 100 years.
