It's been a year since I've been here, but I wrote this review shortly after coming here.
Wood-fire pizza, aka flatbread... wow! Some of the best I've had. Not only that, but Zero-gravity brewing which is attached to the restaurant had an excellent selection of beers. They had a biere de garde, a style I'd never tried before that, and it was undoubtedly one of the best beers I've ever had (I've probably tried close to 500 different beers). The atmosphere was almost a little bit medieval, what with all the bricks and wood oven, tall ceilings and big open room, and it was nice to see all the food being made fresh out in the open. We were seated at the table closest the oven, and it was hot, but we could stand it. The servers were helpful and we didn't have to wait long, even though the place was full. Burlington is a fascinating city to me, and this place cemented it as a real gem. One of the best meals/beers I've had all year.

I had a perfect lunch here with my friends. This was part of our VT brewery tour and is one of our favorite memories. We waited about 10 min to get a table outside. Perfect 75 degrees with a table in the shade. We ordered two flatbreads to share. One being the special for the day. We LOVED them and ate every last bit. The beer was also delicious. I guess my one complaint would be that they do not offer a sampler. I had the Burl N'Wol since I usually love all sour beers, unfortunately this one just wasn't my cup of tea. Something just wasn't matching with my tastebuds. I stole some of my friends Citizen cider which was awesome. My other friend ordered the Afternooner and could not smiling about the perfection of the moment. We had a great time and the servers were very friendly and hepful.

When I made it to Burlington it was really rainy and I was getting tired fast so I decided to head down to American Flatbread, have a few beers, and get some flatbread to go. I had a devil of a time trying to find this place in the rain but I finally found it and scored a seat at the bar. Very nice space with tons of people milling around waiting for their tables to be ready. I got served quickly and my servers were nice and kept my glass full. Quality was very high all around. My beers were good and my flatbread was great and made with high quality ingredients.
The selection was pretty good. Tons of different beers plus their IPA on cask with some extra hops added. Most tasted pretty good, I liked the stout best. I got a half and half flatbread to go, half New Vermont Sausage and half Dancing Heart. I loved the Sausage half, I could not stop eating it, the other half was good but I wish I would have went with one of the other toppings, like the pepperoni and peppers, as they smelled amazing. Overall a really nice place to stop and have some beers and a pie. I will definitely return next time I am in Burlington.

A really interesting place. Stopped by for some late night food after the VBF. One of the best pizzas I have ever had. As is typical for Burlington attention was paid to the ingredients to ensure the best quality.
The beer list was very extensive, almost too extensive. There was very little in terms of interesting beer styles form my point of view, which was odd given the vast number of offerings. I had a saison that was definitely above average.
Service was friendly and prompt on a fairly busy Friday night. Would return for the pizza alone.

The last stop in a mini beer tour of Burlington.... Zero Gravity/American Flatbread is the quintessential Vermont joint. Lots of wood and brick, a nice cozy interior (I bet it is great in the winter while the snow falls outside), an exposed brick oven and lists of local purveyors and farms around the wall. They take the local thing serious in this state!
We sat at the bar, which was surprisingly busy at this time at night (almost 11:30pm, kinda late for Vermont). 13 house beers plus a cask listed on the chalkboard, with a bit of everything and lots of creativity.
I loved the Gruit and Ale Communication DIPA but did not enjoy the Belgian-style dubbel. The Peated IPA would have been nice but it had just kicked. Also a saison, pilsner, Helles bock, Gruit on cask... they are not your average brewpub!
They don't offer beer flights or sizable samples but they do give small free samples. Prices are reasonable at $5.00 per glass and $3.00 per half-glass, and service is friendly and efficient.
We chatted with a local couple and also with the bartender, who happened to work at Prohibition Pig in Waterbury too. I can't wait to visit again and try the famous flatbreads! Oh- don't miss the beautiful artistic tap handles...

this is one of my favorite places to eat and drink anywhere. cool inside and bar area with huge wood fired over right in the middle and an farmhouse sort of decor around the bar. outside seating between two brick buildings with lots of plants, beautiful in the summer. the beers are all great, different every time i go in, creative and well crafted. they do some cool stuff with the casks too. food is unreal. some of the best pizza ever, i love the new vermont maple fennel sausage pizza. its to die for. all the food is outstanding. service is okay, its always really busy so they do the best they can, but you might be waiting a bit for your items, especially at peak times. its priced fairly for what it is, but its out of my everyday budget. i try and go a few times each summer, this place really is incredible if you are a foodie/beer person. i love the emphasis on local and sustainable ingredients. a must visit.

We wandered in here for lunch this past Saturday and I'm glad we did! Two big open rooms with a bar to the far left of the building and a stone hearth to the right back. We were promptly seated and well attended to during our stay. Well the menu is flat breads and salads so it is kind of limited as far as choices, but damn do they make a fine pizza with an emphasis on local and organic which is never a bad thing. I had 4 beers while I as there, half pints, and was utterly blown away by 2 of them while the other two were good as well. I found the prices a bit on the high side, but organic rarely equals value, so I guess you get what you pay for. I would run back here in a heartbeat in fact I tried to bribe my wife into coming back for supper the same day.

I really enjoyed my visit to American Flatbread. Excellent atmosphere at the time...not too crowded, but then, we went early (right after opening time) and I know due to the popularity of this place that it does get VERY crowded which is something to keep in mind. Service was great...helpful and prompt. Selection is good, but not GREAT. Drafts were enjoyable and the food was out of this world delicious. Full points on food. Prices were reasonable all around. I am really looking forward to going back in April, and if you are a craft beer lover, this place is not to be missed.

Really enjoyed stopping in here on a quiet fall sunday afternoon for a few rounds. An excellent beer and food menu which I was only able to merely graze on my short visit. I was here during the lull between lunch and dinner so the kitchen was closed and I ate at the Vermont Pub and Brewery instead. I've heard great things about the flatbread pizzas though!
As I said it was very quiet with maybe 10 other folks in the place having a round. The bartender was an extremely soft-spoken young man who made no chit chat and just went about his business but certainly not in an unfriendly way. He seemed unusually shy for a bartender though!
It's a lovely room to be in and a nice bar to sit at. I had the milk stout on cask which was excellent and a seasonal made with butternut squash (!) called appropriately enough "Sasquash." Both beers were very nicely done. I think they were 4 bucks each too, IIRC. Nice price.
I will definitely return when I'm in the area again. A classy place with beer of obvious quality. A number of bottles from other brewers were on offer and carefully chosen.

Housed in two different store fronts just off of the main Church Street Market, the interior is fairly unassuming with the brick walls, wood bar and tables with minimal decor on the walls. The brick oven and prep kitchen are exposed in the main dinning room, while the front (right hand side) room houses a decently sized bar with some long tables in the rear and small tables in the front with a decent sized standing table towards the bar, filled mostly with those waiting for tables. Crowd is lively during dinner in both the bar and restaurant.
The brews are ample and cover many styles for a brewpub, none were overly ambitious with many being lower in gravity than the style dictates, but not quite "Zero". A few guest selections from local brewers keep the mix interesting.
The star is the food. Despite the small menu, they have some of the most delicious flatbreads around. Definitely go for the minimalist options, as they really allow the locally sourced and high end ingredients to shine. We sampled three varieties of flatbreads during our visit. Service was quite impersonal but adequate.
Overall, come for the food and you won't be disappointed. Throw in the beer and you have a fantastic destination.
