Featuring locally-sourced and organic foods, Brennan's Pub & Bistro is the Davis Center's sit-down or take-out retail dining location, known for it pub food flair and recognized for its sustainable food options and student-driven events. Its mission is to support local and regional farmers by purchasing local, organic and all-natural produce whenever possible. When out of season, we are committed to purchasing food from the next available growing region. As such, Vermont products are featured in nearly everything — from salads to burgers, sandwiches, and beyond. You can even get a traditional Vermont Breakfast (try the pancakes!).
For those of age, Brennan's offers a local microbrew on tap as well as wine. Popular evening programs like UPB's pub quiz, comedy night and the occasional live music keep things busy late night.
Serving: Burgers (veggie, beef), salads, sandwiches, quesadillas, chicken fingers, shakes, fries, and specials based on local produce.
The Book Nook
The Book Nook was inspired by UVM students and is the vision of JP Marton, a beloved Davis Center custodian. It was JP who observed students' love for reading books and worked to provide a space for the open exchange of books and ideas. Currently, the Book Nook resides in Brennan's Pub on the 1st floor of the Davis Center.
Since its conception in 2010, the Book Nook has tripled in size and donations are always welcome! You can donate books to the Book Nook by leaving them in the donation box (adjacent to the shelves in Brennan's). Books that hold special meaning are especially welcome.
