    Damn I was just up at Woodstock Hops and Barley, and its definitely not a destination location. They were all out of Heady Topper and dude said they were getting iced out in lieu of Burlington, VT cause all of their beer was headed further north. I should have called before I left southern NH to go up there, despite the ride being nice and chill.

    I then went to another craft beer store in S. Vermont, whose name I cannot remember off the top of my head, but it was cool that it was sort of in the middle of nowhere and had all kinds of stuff.

    They had the Stone Smoked Porter with Chipotle peppers, Stone's 10th Aniversary Ruination, Trout River, Heady Topper (got 3, 4 packs) and the Sierra Nevada/Russian River Brux. Looking forward to trying these in the near future!

    I've been to that Hops and barley twice now. Both times they had plenty of Heady and even found a Founders Imperial Stout there available about 5 months after its release. Obviously that one does sell out as quickly as other Founders releases but the fews stores in Mass I know that got it definitely didn't have it for 5 months. So it's kind of a weird little store but the fact that it flies a bit under the radar certainly helped me out.
