Stopped in here over the weekend while in town for the HF Festival.

Atmosphere is pretty laid back. Quality was quite good. I checked out quite a few bottles and for the most part they were all either fresh or intentionally aged. Service was awesome. Bob was super helpful and he is a great guy too boot. I would describe the beer selection as adequate. It isn't the biggest in the area but it does have some nice bottles you don't see every day, plus they get heady topper all the time. Liquor Quality / Selection was also awesome, they even had some local offerings which is always a plus. Prices were on par with all of the other places in the area.

Overall if you are staying in Stowe, or passing through for that matter, this is definitely a place to check out.

This place is a great little gem of a store if you're in Stowe any time of year. It's small and has more wine and liquor than beer, but the beer selection is decent and the best in town. There is always a random selection of Belgians and domestics in the couple of small fridges, but most of the stock is on shelves at room temp. My most recent visit (August 2012) had a nice selection of Trappist beers (including Rochefort 10), Stone beers (including IRS and 10th Anniv Ruination), Founders (including Frangelic Mountain Brown), Rock Art, some Maine Beer Co., Anchorage, Jolly Pumpkin, Pannepot, and Peche Mortel. Manager is very helpful if you have questions. Overall selection is better at Winooski Beverage Warehouse and Hunger Mountain Coop, but this is a nice shop just down the road from the ski slopes.

Hit this place up numerous times over a week long trip the first week of December.

As others have mentioned, this is primarily a liquor store, but to the left is no shortage of craft beer. They had a bottle of Pliny just hanging out there which my partner and I recognized. The guy working sparked conversation "You know that beer?" And thus began a rather indepth discusion of beer that was revisited each and every time I hit the store during the week.
The selection here is very good for such a small place, and by far the best selection from any place else that I had frequented. Lots of local (and New England) love - Rock Art, Otter Creek, Hill Farmstead, Magic Hat, Switchback, and that day canned at the brewery fresh Heady Topper. I'm all about locals so that was what I queued in on - but there was a decent selection of other offerings and I believe some Pannepot was headed in to the store later in the week.
As I mentioned earlier, I sparked quite the convo with their beer guy - Bob while there, and he made sure to treat us right every time we came in to the store as well as give us great suggestions for places to grab a bite and a good beer.
This is definitely a place to pop your head in to if you're in Stowe as you'll get the best selection and great service in the area.
