5. American Flatbread Burlington Hearth
Location: Burlington, Vt.

It made the Top 10 last year only because The Alchemist had just shut down its brewpub. This year, RateBeer readers gave the pub the nod on its own merits. American Flatbread is a longtime Burlington favorite, largely because its 22 taps include two casks and more than a dozen homebrews. Combine those with a two-page menu of namesake flatbread pizzas loaded with locally produced and organically grown toppings and you're getting a microcosm of Burlington's laid-back, hyperlocal culture with each visit.
