Stopped in here to start my second day in Vermont. I was really surprised by the size of this place, it really feels big once you get inside. Tons of people all over the place doing their daily shopping and eating in the cafe area. Everything in the store feels like it is top quality and the staff was very helpful and offered some suggestions on which beers to get and when the new ones would be arriving. I wish I hadn't eaten breakfast yet, I would have just eaten here since the food looked really good.

I actually missed the beer area the first time I made my rounds, once I found it I was pleasantly surprised it wasn't picked clean yet. They had 4-5 different Hill Farmsteads, a few different Lawson's, some four packs of Heady Topper and even some Belgian Lambic's too boot. I picked up a few bottles and was very happy with the prices. Overall a really nice place to stop and get some bottles while you are in the area, I will definitely return in the future. (970 characters)

These are the places Iove to shop for beer. Good sized, not too large and not too big.

Really well diversified selection and stock of items. Locals, other nearby great brews from Mass and elsewhere. Excellent stocked shelves and really good prices. A 25 dollar bottle of Eclipse?! Why yes thank you very much.

Staff are also real knowledgeable, one guy brewed for about 12 years and could answer any questions I had about availability or stock of any product I was looking for. Good amounts of cold storage here too.

Definitely a must stop when beer shopping in Vermont. (580 characters)

The beer guy at Hunger Mountain Coop is one of the worst human beings I have ever encountered.

This spot gets great beer with their weekly Alchemist and Lawson's selections, occasional Backacre, and other limited release bottles.

If you can stomach the lousy service, you will walk out with some quality beers. (314 characters)

In my mind, the best place in the state to pick up Heady, with a strong local selection available. Some nice out-of-state stuff available as well. (146 characters)

The place to get Vermont beer. Only real complaint is that they never seem to have Heady Topper available when I visit Vermont. For that, I go elsewhere where they limit sales to one four pack per person. (206 characters)

"I went on the Vermont pilgrimage" were my words but the beer department gentlemen called it the "Rubber Band Effect" -we stayed the night in Montpelier Wednesday night to hit the Hunger Mountain Co-op Thursday morning Heady delivery-then headed up to Hill Farmstead but back to Hunger Mountain for the Lawson's Sip of Sunshine 1pm release. It was an epic trip to say the least. I spent another C-note just walking around the Hunger Mountain grocery store. They have some incredible cheese and an array of organic products-Thumbs up to them! (542 characters)
