Running an award-winning bar and restaurant has never been easy. It required innovation and perseverance to get through COVID-19. And the Three Penny Taproom just completed a major expansion and renovation, reopening just a week+ before the worst natural disaster in nearly 100 years struck Montpelier.

The community has shown up for this local gem and many other wonderful businesses over the last couple of days, and we'll continue to show up for them in the days and weeks to come. But unemployment will only get the staff so far. At an average of ~$400 payout per week, most people - from servers to cooks to bartenders - cannot live on that, not even in central Vermont.
Please contribute any amount to the Tip Jar in honor of the team at Three Penny Taproom, or in honor of your favorite bar or restaurant. This team is working, along with generous community members, to get this business back up and running as fast as possible. In the meantime, give what you can and we'll distribute it equally to the entire team.
Cheers, salud, prost!
