After having a few beers at The Shed, we walked across the street to the State Liquor Store. This place is located in the middle of a mini strip mall.

Upon entering, go to the left for beers. I found this selection to be pretty good. There is a nice cross representation of Belgium, English and American craft beers.

Selection highlights include Unibroue, Dogfish Head, Chimay, Foret, Ommegang, Weihenstephaner, Trappistes Rochefort 6, 8 & 10, Westmalle and Celebrator.

There are also some nice wooden shelves in the back left corner showcasing Stone, Rogue, Allagash and Southern Tier. This store also has local Vermont favorites like Long Trail, Rock Art, Wolavers and Trout River.

The dude checking us out was friendly enough, but our interactions were minimal. Certainly a good place to stock up on some craft beers when in Stowe.

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.
