Just a mile or two from the UVM campus, A natural foods market in Burlington, VT...this is gonna be interesting...what it is is a whole foods wanna be...not as big, not as extensive selections..but wholesome,pleasant to be in, loaded with local, healthy, artisanal products, like seemingly everywhere else in Vermont that is interested in good food, local ingredients, healthy food and lifestyles... I like Vermont...oh the beer? not bad, nothing amazing here, moderate selection...expect the usual locals including a bunch of Rock Art bombers for under $4 a bottle, nice. Dont go specially for the beer, Winosookie's great bottle shop is the place for that, but do go if in the area for some local cheese, veggies, fruit etc and some local, fresh Vermont brewery offerings.

Healthy Living Market & Café is kind of like a Whole Foods. They've got a great selection of items, including beer and wine. It's not the best selection in Vermont, that's over at Beverage Warehouse in Winooski, but it's not the worse either. While I was there on my last trip I just happened upon a U-frame cart of the Alchemist's Heady Topper. I also picked up a seasonal release from Queen City, a 4-pk of Lost Nation's Mosaic IPA, and a bottle of Rodenbach Vintage for my wife. They don't play around with prices as some of the liquor stores do because they're a market; and you can grab all kinds of other gourmet food items while you're there.

This is a grocery store, not a beer store. Not a large beer selection, but they do have a nice variety of local stuff, including Heady Topper. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Probably the best beer spot in town. The beer and wine guys know their stuff.

Not a beer store, does not have a big beer selection, but they do get regular deliveries of Heady. I picked up my first ever case of Heady from this place so it has a special place in my liver.

I was torn as to whether this store is deserving of a 3.75 or a 4. On the one hand it is not a beer store and only has a little section of the coolers dedicated to it. However, on the other hand they have a great selection of local and national beers to appeal to just about anyone (despite size). And it is NOT a beer store. So there you go.
I've only been there a couple times, but the first time I got some HT and the second time I was able to get a couple other locals I had never tried.
Both times they were in the process of rotating out bottles so it obviously sells pretty quick and stays fresh.
Not the end-all-be-all, but excellent for what it is.

This is my neighborhood store, and closest spot for a six pack. They have a fair amount of selection and you can usually find something pretty good, including weekly supplies of Heady Topper, even available in full cases. A fair amount of bombers are available as well, and have a dedicated place for gluten free beer offerings.
