Otherwise known as 'Shitty Markup', this place has an ever increasing beer selection and a great hot/cold food bar. Unfortunately, you can't drink on premises but grabbing food and cans to go picnicking on the waterfront is always a great idea. The downsides are that navigating the weird aisle layout is awful, the parking lot is a nightmare, and the other customers are generally rude (either huffing at you being in their way or driving their carts right at you). The cashiers aren't friendly, helpful or efficient either. Expect your hot food to get cold while waiting for the gossip sessions in line to end. At least they sell quality goods, but it's generally a last resort stop for me personally.

There are definitely better options for beer selection in Burlington, but they do have a nice variety of VT beers. The rest of the store is what makes the place stand apart.

This place gets Heady Topper and Sip of Sunshine regularly. Difficult to find a parking spot and the aisles are narrow and hard to navigate.

The grocery store itself is really cool, but the beer department leaves a lot to be desired. The selection was fairly limited and the selection of interesting or harder to find beers was almost non-existent. You can literally see every beer they have in 2 minutes with only a single wall of bombers and a few shelves of 4/6/12 packs. Was very disappointed overall in the beer department here.
