Totally depends on what you're looking for. I'm a member of the ultimate frisbee team, which is known for wild parties, but I'm sure they're not the Bacchanalian ragers you'd probably find at some state schools. If you're looking for that, you probably won't find it at Midd. But we certainly like to have a good time on the weekends, and you'll find parties Thursday, Friday, and Saturday (and sometimes Wednesday if you're on the frisbee team). We don't have frats, so most of the parties are through the sports teams. Personally, the intensity and frequency of Midd parties are pretty much perfect for me.

The professors are exceptional, the course variety is superb, and registration is simple. The workload is no greater than I'd expect it to be at an elite college, but I certainly did more work in high school. Teachers are accomodating in that regard. Truly though, I'm not an effusive person, but the academics at Middlebury--at least what I've experienced in the humanities--are just a delight and tremendously enriching, particularly if you are partial to a more intimate learning experience.

People party on Fridays and Saturdays, with the occasional weekday party. I would say a slight majority of people on campus drink, though their individual frequencies vary--some may have a beer or two with some friends in a dorm, and some may frequent large parties 3 days a week. I've never felt any great deal of pressure to drink, and there are not an insignificant number of students who'd rather get ahead on homework or stay in reading on a Saturday night (including myself on occasion). Teetotaler or tippler, you will likely find your scene at Middlebury.
