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.
