This co-op style supermarket is fairly close to most of the attractions of Burlington. It has a feel of a more scaled-down and low key version of Whole Foods. Food seems to be of higher quality than your typical large grocer. But, the beer seems to be just above average in terms of selection. You can find a good variety of the major national brands and the larger VT brands. And a small # of US craft brewers are here. I was hoping for a bottle or two from the smaller brewers out of the state, maybe in the future, this will become a reality.

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.
