“Jasper Murdock’s Alehouse is a restaurant and pub located in the Norwich Inn on Main Street next to Dan and Whit’s. It features one restaurant menu, whether you are dining in the Pub, Outdoor Patio, Dining Room or Terrace. The menu offers Pub favorites along with more substantial entrees. The restaurant and brewery offer seating on a “first come, first served” basis in the Pub/Patio. The Vermont craft beer is pumped underground and across a 100 foot distance from the Brewery cellar to the Pub at the Inn, where they rotate 8 different beers, plus one cask ale. They also offer Guest Taps, which will usually feature beers from other popular Vermont breweries. ”
