This place was straight up awesome. The selection was huge and fantastic, with tons of beers from around the world, in varying styles, in large quantities.

The staff was very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly; good dudes to chat with about craft beer.

They provide a good deal of brewing equipment, too, meaning this can really be your one stop for everything beer.

This has to be considered a must-stop bottle shop in the area.

Visited the evening of April 8.

V: Seemed good, if laid-back. It's a nice beer store with a lot of selection in a smallish space.

Q: Clean, lots of room, great and well-ordered cold and room temperature offerings.

Service: Good, gave me a good idea I would not have come up with. A little too laid-back, though.

Sel: Plenty of it in a small space.

Good place to stop in Waterbury.

walking into this wonderful old brick storefront the first thing I noticed was the beer was treated like fine wines - finally! The selection is really great, they could use some more stouts but I managed to find a beer that I have been looking for all over the state. The service was friendly and chatty, but not overbearing. Overall a great place to add to my month beer rounds...

You can find Lawson's and Alchemist beer here. But the big draw for me was the great organization of their beers. Almost everything was lumped by brewery and they had brewers most of us can't find in the local craft store. They also have glassware and clothing from a variety of Vermont brewers. The guys are friendly, even to tourists like myself.

What a fantastic beer store.

In the nice small area of Waterbury, near Prohibition Pig and other great haunts as well.

Wonderfully clean and well stocked store. Bottles are in book like shelves, neatly arranged too, in sections from locals to foreign. There are some incredibly good beers around in this store as well.

Fantastic foreign section, great selection also from Quebec and there were even bottle of de Struise Damnation here as well. Staff is very friendly and cordial, and it also looks like they have a growler station as well.

Definite must stop store for beer in Vermont.
