Traveled here in August of 2008. Lots of good beer.... have adapted to to the new Vermont law (July 2008) allowing sales of beer over 8%. Quite a few excellent beers from all over the US and Canada. Staff (owner?) knowledgeable about beer and the change in Vermont law... offered to come to my house to drink the excellent beer that I was buying. Far away, but worth checking if I am in the area for beers that I do not have on my Ratebeer list...

Stopped here a few years ago and was disappointed with just about everything we brought home. Just stopped in again today while traveling through and itís pretty much the same. Incense, porno mags, lottery, smoke shop and beer store. They DO have an impressive array of beers to choose from, but I donít think they sell quickly so tend to sit a long time. I almost jumped on some bottles of Clown Shoes beers until I saw the bottle date of a year ago. Most beers are not refrigerated so youíre on your own if you get something fresh or years old.

Stopped on my way to Northern Vermont. They stock a decent selection of Belgian beers and have some Canadian beers that are harder to find in the U.S. More of a smoke and porn shop than a beer store. Somewhat lacking in Vermont beers. Not worth going out of your way for,

beer and wine are the main items but they have an extensive supply of soda, glassware, t-shirts, magazines, snacks, and smokes

Lots of good Vermont and New England beers that I couldnít find in NY State. Itís a short trip over the border (especially if you live in Albany/Capital District) to reload once or twice a year. Good selection of crafts, and most of them are very reasonably priced. There is a LOT of pornography right near where the beers are, so just keep that mind if you are bringing kids in with you.

My link to VT beer. Make a trip to bennington almost every year, and this is my beer spot. Good selection of VT beers, as well as other US, Belgian, German favís. Never saw anything amazing here, but itís still a good bev stop.

A little hole in the wall store that I wouldnít expect to find over 200 singles for sale. What impressed me the most where the prices. Oval labels of La Roja for $6!!! Plenty of McNeills for $3.29/22oz. Worth stopping in if you are near the area.

Good selection on McNeillís ,as mentioned elsewhere; had the imperial stout for $3.29 22 ounce; also, had Rock Art Barleywine at $2.99/ 22 ounce. 12 pack prices for other VT beers slightly cheaper at the Manchester Beverage Center up the road...

I stopped by here at like 10am and was happy to see a ton of McNeillís available, I definitely stocked up. This place is pretty nice little shop. You can get tobacco, comic book/magazine, and brew all at the same time.

The Smokerís Den sells beer, wine, tobacco, magazines, and snacks. While not solely a beer store they do have a decent selection for small town Vermont. In particular Iíve been able to find tons of McNeillís every time Iíve been there. They managed to get most of McNeillís seasonals in stock all the time. Rock Art, Trout River, Magic Hat and other VT and regional breweries are well represented as well. Surprisingly, there isnít a bad selection of UK and Belgian beers there as well. Worth stopping by if youíre in the area....but nothing worth traveling for.
