2013-04-26. Pretty large beer selection, how impressive it is will partly depend on what you are looking for and where you are from. Lots of European stuff that was good, but didnít really interest us on this trip. Not a ton of rarities when we were there, but I expect that rotates depending on when you are there. Sold out of Lawsonís (apparently they hadnít delivered due to shortages). We grabbed two four packs of Heady Topper and a few other select bottles. Would probably have bought more but we had loaded up at Hill Farmstead, and I wasnít sure what else we would find later on our trip. Market itself is pretty nice. Worth poking your head in to check it out if nothing else.

Great selection here. Tons of New England stuff. Highlights include Lawsonís and Heady Topper. But thereís plenty of other stuff to interested seasoned RBers. Prices are decent or maybe a touch high, but itís somewhat upscale grocery store anyway. It would definitely be worth your while to pop into this place if youíre in the area.

Stopped in here to start my second day in Vermont. I was really surprised by the size of this place, it really feels big once you get inside. Tons of people all over the place doing their daily shopping and eating in the cafe area. Everything in the store feels like it is top quality and the staff was very helpful and offered some suggestions on which beers to get and when the new ones would be arriving. I wish I hadnít eaten breakfast yet, I would have just eaten here since the food looked really good.
I actually missed the beer area the first time I made my rounds, once I found it I was pleasantly surprised it wasnít picked clean yet. They had 4-5 different Hill Farmsteads, a few different Lawsonís, some four packs of Heady Topper and even some Belgian Lambicís too boot. I picked up a few bottles and was very happy with the prices. Overall a really nice place to stop and get some bottles while you are in the area, I will definitely return in the future.

I canít believe I hadnít logged a review of this spot, it has one of the best and most thoughtfully selected set of beer choices in the entire state. You can score Heady Topper and Hill Farmstead, or you can have a very decent range of Belgian Lambics and Saisons. The prices are fair and thereís a ton of fantastic food around. Easily the best place to hit in Montpelier after the Three Penny Taproom. Very friendly beer-stocking staff.

A nice Co-Op in the capital of Vermont, with a surprising selection of beers from the US (including Lawsons...NB: no more than 2 bottles, max!...store policy), and imports (mikkeler, Dugges, etc...). Prices were below that of Winooski Beverages. Plenty of parking. Compares well with other stores in Vermont.

Iím really impressed with this place. It was recommended to me by fellow BA friends as a place to go on my way back home from a brewery in Stowe.
The beer selection was GREAT for such a small store. There were some gems here that I canít get in New Hampshire. I ended up buying 8 bottles in total and then asked the beer guy for some recommendations and he directed me to a few beers that were very well reviewed on BA so he clearly knew his stuff.
Good service, great selection. This is now a required stop when Iím heading to Burlington for sure.

09/2008 Update - They have embraced the change in beer laws here in Vermont and now carry a small variety of higher alcohol selections from all over.
Original rating - The beer selection here is fairly small, but also fairly diverse... no macros and a good mix of micros from all over... both domestic and imported. There are better places to get beer in Vermont, but they are close by and will work in a pinch. Lots of great natural/organic food here as well.

This place is a natural foods place and beer is not the primary part of its inventory. Thereís a small beer section which includes mostly Vermont micros/craft, a few imports and some of the organic stuff. They do not sell any national macros (B-M-C). Throw in the occasional rare find. It is not a place to go out of your way to visit but if you are in Vermontís capital city....
I will agree with the original poster that for harder to find stuff, this is where to go in Montpelier. But the Shawís grocery store and the M&M Beverge Center about a half mile down the road into the downtown area have larger selections.

Hunger Mountainís beer selection has steadily improved over the last couple of years and I feel now warrants a listing. It isnít any larger or better than any place in Burlington, necessarily, but itís well displayed, they keep most of the ciders available in the state, and they seem to get newly available stuff before a lot of other area stores. Easily the best selection in the capital region; they just recently added McNeills and soon should have Jolly Pumpkin. Also a near-tie for best cheese selection in the state (with Burlingtonís Fresh Market).
