Off to Burlington: American Flatbread

Gotta catch up on a couple trips from this past Summer! For 4th of July weekend I headed to Burlington, Vermont. It was my first time in Vermont and I loved every minute of it. The quick flight was about an hour and I made my way to my hotel from the small airport.

Hello, Vermont!

I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn downtown. Prices were reasonable for the holiday weekend and I could walk to everything. They also provided transportation to and from the airport.

It was raining when I departed Newark, but the rain started to die down once I arrived in Vermont.

For lunch, I made my way to American Flatbread, the Burlington Hearth location. It was only a few minutes walk from the hotel.

The restaurant is known for their wood-fired pizzas topped with organic and seasonal ingredients.

This location also houses a brewpub featuring Zero Gravity craft beer.

I started off with the Conehead, a refreshing and lighter IPA brewed with all Citra hops.

All the flatbreads sounded good, so I went with half and half so I could try a couple.


The Medicine Wheel is made with organic tomato sauce baked with mozzarella, Italian Grana Padano cheese, and fresh herbs. Simple and tasty. The other half was New Vermont Sausage with housemade sausage made with local fresh pork, sundried tomatoes, caramelized onions, mushrooms, cheese, and fresh herbs. Good stuff.

They actually forgot the mushrooms and gave me another whole pie to-go. I thought that was awesome!

The pizza was great and I wanted to try another beer before leaving. I went with the Keeper, a French farmhouse style amber lager that has been aged for 5 months.

I enjoyed my first meal in Burlington. The sun was coming out and I decided to walk around Church Street Marketplace for a bit. The outdoor pedestrian street consists of four blocks lined with stores, restaurants, local specialty shops, and bars.

It was such a nice area, such a cute town. I was looking forward to spending the next few days here!
