Whole Foods/Trader Joes - esque grocery store, with a great selection of local singles, including cider. Average prices for the area, it seemed. Located right in the "downtown" area, and very accessible if youíre doing the town bar crawl. Worth a stop in if youíre in the area and looking to take a few local bottles home.

The comparison to a local Whole Foods is spot on. Its certainly one of the nicest food co-ops Iíve ever visited and thankfully thereís plenty of parking next door. They have about 150 kinds of mainly local and some national craft. They also have some nice prizes lurking. On the day I visited I found a Founderís doom that I wasnt expecting. But apparently a lot has changed since 2006. They have very little BMC and a strong focus on local product. Itís not a destination place but itís a pretty solid local.

Of the handful of shops that I checked out in the Brattleboro, this was probably the best. It was nice to be able to grab singles of anything. They had very fair prices and a good assortment of regional, local, and national microbreweries, with a good suite of specialty beers. Donít expect anything rare, but if youíre camping or hiking and want something decent, this is the place to stop. Plus the food here is fantastic.

I was really happy to see this place with 10 or so bottles of the Dogfish Pearl Jam brew chilling on the shelf. I hit the jackpot for the local beers here, so I couldnít be happier. Big store for food. Great selection of local beers.

A nice little food store stowed away in Brattleboro. The staff is extremely nice and helpful and the place has tons of local products. Their beer selection mainly focuses around VT products, especially Brattleboroís own McNeillís. Other VT beers like Otter Creek, Magic Hat and Rock Art are always available along with other US microbrews like rare Dogfish and Rogues. Reasonable prices.

This place has renovated since my last visit, for the better. Similar to Whole Foods, with good cheese, wine and beer selection. A lot of the McNeills, and other Vermont offerings, with good classics, such as Stone, Kasteel, Harpoon, etc...good prices.

As others have mentioned, basically a food co-op in an artsy, hippie town. Very impressed with the beer selection. Local brews of course. McNeillís, Trout River, but also a good selection of other craft brews. Prices, I thought were quite reasonable. One of the things I liked about Brattleboro, is everything is within walking distance. I hit McNeillís, Flat Street and this place, all within an hour or so.

Pretty solid selection for what is basically a health-conscious, alternative supermarket in a small town. Iíd say there are about 150 different beers, with some good representatives from abroad. But mainly the standouts are Vermont beers, like McNeillís and Trout River.

A small selection of beer, though all of the recent 4 offerings of
McNeill, Be sure to buy additional choices at the pub itself (and take the car). Good selection of food accompaniments for beer. Almost everything in the cooler. Almost all, local selection. Closed at 9 pm.

Stopped here before heading out of town and grabbed a few bottles to bring back with me. Good selection of McNeillís - same price per bottle as the brewpub itself. Got a 750mL of Rodenbach Grand Cru for $8.50, which I thought a good deal. Had some Berkshire and just a few other New England beers. Not a huge selection, though.
