I come to Montpelier several times a year, but I just got around to coming to the Co-op this month. It's a little hard to find, as the road it sits on feels like an unmarked exit from something pinched between the river and railroad tracks. Once you find the one-way parking lot, though, you are happy. The Co-op is a great modern store with lots of fresh, local, organic foods and the quintessential Vermont vibe. Makes me wish I lived up here. The beer area is small but very distinguished. Thursdays they do growler fills from a specific brewery so check their website for updates. My friend got a 64 oz. growler fill of Founders Imperial Stout for $9 - I nearly fainted! The day I went they were featuring Trapp Brewery, which makes a great Trostenbier (dunkel with a touch of smoke). I also benefitted from good timing and scored some Founders Curmudgeon's Better Half. The Co-op carries Lawson's Finest, but there's a two-bottle limit. Heady Topper on sale here too. Hill Farmstead bottles sometimes make an appearance, but it pays to ask someone if they "have anything special out back," as they sometimes do. A must visit if you're in town, then get yourself over to Three Penny Taproom for the best beer experience in Vermont!
