We came in here after we hit the VPB. They had a large selection of beer glasses to our left. Walked through the wine section (which was good by the way) to get to the beer section. They had tons of VT beers in stock. The beer room has a warehouse feel to it. I was very impressed with the selection, and would rate it as the best I've seen in VT! They had a large amount of Belgium beers in stock, as well as other imports. I honestly thought that I was in Mass. I was shocked to find Theobrama from DFH here, so I made the impulse buy for a couple of those, also grabbed a six of Trout River oatmeal chocolate stout.
The only interaction I had with the staff was the cashier, he seemed nice, so no complaints there.

I'd say if you are in or around this area, it is deffinitely worth a stop. I know I'll be back.

I love this place!

I took my family on a last-minute getaway to Burlington this year, and the day we were leaving, I thought I would hit a local store to find some local beer. I wasn't hunting Heady, but accidentally walked in (to the end of the line) at a distribution day with a bonus of Sip of Sunshine. Made it through the line twice, ended up talking with the staff for at least a half hour, and came out with some beers they didn't have out on the shelves. Such nice people, everywhere. Not the crabby people hating on beer travelers, but friendly people interested in other people's interest in good beer. I will make sure to visit this store any time I am in the area.

The worst service imaginable. I wish I did not have to buy beer here.

It's the only place to get limited Lawson's bottles, otherwise I would avoid this place at all costs.

Got my case of Heady so I'm happy. I'd say my complaint here would be that the place is filled with 3 month old (and older) IPAs, and prices are tough to find on some beers. A nice big selection of local stuff, just make sure you read the dates if they have them.

Amazing store! Stood in line for Heady Topper and Sip of Sunshine. The distribution was organized and flawless. The staff were courteous and helpful, and the line moved amazingly quick. The selection of beer is outstanding. So many rare beers to be found on their shelves!

It's essentially the one-stop shop in Vermont. If the state gets it, they will have it while supplies last. The secret out that this is the go to, so anything limited/obscure that comes in will go faster than the other shops in the state, and of course for Heady/SOS shipments, expect to be there at the time the shipment drops or you won't get any. I've seen Heady sell out in under 5 minutes.

On that note, the service also makes everything here ideal. Not only knowledgeable, very good at pointing people to the right vermont beer direction as well so if you're not there trying to find heady and lawsons, you will still find somebody who can tell you what good VT brews you might have skipped out on otherwise. They also count the heady line to ensure if you do line up you will get at least some. Some days they are handing out cases like nothing, and others you'll stil at least get a pack or two.

Since it's also the most distant from me in the direction I come from, I don't always get up here for cases, but no complaints when I have, and I always get a case. The line itself is also not too bad as every time I end up meeting with and talking to fellow beer geeks about VT beer or other highly reviewed/sought after beers from our parts of the country so it's always a pleasant visit compared to other experiences. Prices are about what you will see across the state as well.

Overall I can't think of anything more you would need out of your typical bottle store.
