The two in Brattleboro are Dewey's Ale house and Latches'. Latches
beer is fairly ordinary. Dewey's had shut down operations to renevate
their brewery to make it larger -- after only 6 months in business. Guess
those Vt's like to drink :^)
Anyway, that makes 6 brewpubs that I *know* are in Vt, which works out
to 1 per 91,600 residents. Which beats :

Well, if you consider just the Brattelboro area, which can't have more than
20,000 people, with 2 brewpubs, you get 1 per 10,000 residents!
Not that it's a contest or anything :^)
