Right next to Simple Roots brewery, this nice little bottle/can shop offers up a good selection of Vermont beers and New England as well. Pretty clean and quick service. They do mix-a-six in the back in the cooler area. They took away their growlers recently. It's a decent place and Simple Roots actually walks their bottles and cans here.

802 BWS is a fairly new place just a few minutes to the NW up North Avenue from the city center. It's a large place with wine, liquor, beer, snacks, and that all important lottery ticket!

It seems they're still sorting out the beer, for the better, and while I was there they had 1 cooler door full of of gluten-free beers, 2 that offered single bottles with 6 shelves devoted to large bottles, 10 doors for craft 6-packs, 2 for cider, and 1 that was part cider and part limited releases (although there wasn't much). There's also a full row of war bottles to choose from and you can mix-a-six.

Probably the best thing, however, is their growler filling station. I'm not sure how many taps they have, I thought there were 12, but their blackboard only has 7 slots and there were only 4 available during my visit. One drawback is that you have to use their growlers (state law), but they only charge a $3 deposit.

I'd recommend it as a stop just to see what they've got as I did find some different things, but at the same time I should point out that I picked up a 4-pack of Lost Nation Gose at the Hannahford market right behind it for $3 less than they were charging.

A good spot a little far from town with a nice little selection of limited beer.

Some really excellent deals found here, and a pretty decent selection. The store doesn't look quite full yet so I'm excited to see if more is added.
