A hippie spirited store with a solid, but diversified selection of everything - food or liquid, but perhaps not exceptional in any department. Still, a growing number of sakes, lots of cheeses and the excellent location, makes this worth the 5 minute walk to get there from Burlington’s center. The beer selection holds above a hundred bottles and that makes it quite good for Vermont, but obviously, if you have the time, a trip to Winooski would offer a larger variety. On the other hand, I counted a few bottles here that were not at Winooski, so you may want to pop in anyway. I like the place anyway and their breads are very solid.

A good selection of Vermonts particularly McNeills. Not much in imports. There were some Rogues as well. As this is not the biggest supermarket, the beer selection is a significant portion of the store. Lots and lots of 12-paks boxes and some growlers. Staff were not beer knowledgeable they just work here. Good long hours and convenient downtown location, so a sure stop ifyou are passing through this beautiful small city. What I liked best in Vermont was here, the emphasis on the local craft everythin industry, and the minimum in macro selection.

Excellent grocery store with all kinds of fine foods and alcohols. Quite similar to Brattleboro’s Food Co-Op, or Montpelier’s Hunger Mountain Co-Op, but maybe a bit nicer visually. Must be very interesting to do your weekly shopping here.

Not sure what the hype is about this place; their selection was modest and overall seemed more or less on par with the Vermont State Liquor stores. I did see a few bottles of Alesmith, which is an interesting find this far East, but not so exciting for this Californian.

A really nice grocery store in the style of Whole Foods, focusing a lot on local produce and goods - even if it didn’t sell beer it would be worth a stop, as their selection of food and other products is very impressive - the beer section contains about everything you can get in VT, but when I was there their stock of McNeills had dwindled to three (although one of those was Old Ringworm, score!) - the small shelf of sakes was nice, too - overall a great little local grocery - however, it seems to get very busy, and the parking lot is dangerously small (my girlfriend and I almost got ran over in front of the place).

2013-04-28. There was a pretty decent bottle selection but like Hunger Mountain, how impressive it is will partly depend on what you are looking for and what you can get back home. Some relatively obscure stuff from the West Coast as well as locals and more widely distributed stuff. No Lawson’s Finest, the staff member I asked seemed to have never heard of them. I was going to look up a few things and come back but never ended up doing that until it was too late. We loaded up on Maple Syrup and cookies here instead :)

Stopped here on our way out of town to grab some sandwiches, maple syrup, and of course some beers. Great food store with decent beer selection. Six packs and single bottles of a lot of good locals and New England/Canadian brews. Reminds me a lot of Wellspring (now Whole Foods) in Chapel Hill/Raleigh, and Sunny Farms in Sequim, WA. Great place.

Établissement visité le 11 août après le diner. Comme on ne peut presque rien traverser, comme nourriture, à la frontière nous sommes venu faire nos achats ici pour apporter en camping. Ambiance: Un supermarché comme j’aime, plein de produits à découvrir et le tout très bien présenté. Service: Je ne crois pas que tout le personnel sont des experts en bière mais si vous avez des questions hésitez pas à demander à Muzzlehatch qui y travaille. Selection: Surtout des produits du Vermont. Tout les produits sont disponible froid. On y trouve aussi un bon choix de produit en format de 22 oz. Food: Paradis des aliments biologiques sous toutes ses formes. Bon choix de fromage local. (23e rating d’établissement)

Cool Co-Op spot (grocery). Picked up few snacks on the way. Beer selection was OK not great. As everywhere service was above average. This must be Vermont thing.

When I visited: Late May 2013.
What I bought: Otter Creek Hop Session Ale, Dogfish Head Sixty-One, Wolaver’s India Pale Ale, Maine Beer Company MO and Zoe, others.
What I liked: Lots of refrigerated local craft beer, reasonably fresh dates on most stuff, beer guy was happy to help although some of his recommendations fell flat, cool Whole Foods vibe to the place, a decent if unspectacular option for lunch and a bottle shop.
What I disliked: Beer selection was okay but not particularly impressive, cashier was unwilling to grab me an empty case when I told her it would help us avoid problems at the border, not many bomber or dinner bottle options here, no growler fills as far as I know.
Would I go back? Probably not.
