“The Bobcat is the go-to spot in Lincoln and Bristol for great pub fare and house made beers. One of the original microbreweries in Vermont, it is an institution of the VT beer scene. Great for family dinners too! ”

“Check out Lowell Thompson playing there every Tuesday evening. Great music to accompany their Taco Tuesday menu. Lowell is a legend in the local music scene and to catch him on such a small stage is quite a stroke of luck.”
