Visited this place 2 times in the last month and definitely like it a lot. The beer price is way better than Beverage Warehouse, they don’t have as much beer choice though but at least they have no limit on pretty much everything. Got some Jackie’s BA the other day with no limit, same for some Cloud Drop whereas Bevie had a 4-pack limit. I also got some KBS here way after it was sold out everywhere else so definitely a place worth going if you’re in the area.
Also, both times I went I was asked if I needed help so can’t complain about the service. Was also able to get some beer reserved.
Updating this to reflect my thoughts after living in Vermont for a good two years. Nice selection of glassware fitting towards certain styles. Selection as far as beers were really good as well ranging from European, all-over the U.S., and then some small New England brewing companies. Service is usually pretty quick. I go back when I’m in the downtown area, but I do have to dust off some bottles a fair amount of the times. They get Heady on Tuesdays.
A good beer store just outside Burlington’s city center. It suffers from its proximity to Winooski’s Beverage Center which has about twice the selection, but Pearl remains well stocked indeed and at times has had the one or two rarities Winooski had none of left (or had never had, I don’t know). Worth a check if Vermont is not too far for you or if you can spare half an hour during your sojourn in the area.
A decent mid-sized store with a fairly good selection of local beer, as well as beers from around the country. The service was perfectly fine and the prices were typical. Pretty good for a downtown store.
La sélection n’est pas aussi impressionnante qu’au Beverage Warehouse de Winooski, mais dans mon livre à moi, cette place demeure un incontournable, surtout si vous êtes fans de bières plus wild et funky. Les prix sont similaires au Warehouse également. Le service est quasi inexistant, c’est quand même, à la base, un dépanneur. À voir si vous êtes dans le centre-ville de Burlington.
Genre d’épicerie/dépanneur à la sélection un peu touffue, mais relativement impressionnante ; certaines bouteilles ne sont plus tout à fait fraîches, attention. Il est aussi possible de faire le plein des pires swills américains si le coeur (ou vos maigres finances) vous en dit. Le personnel varie du gars de plancher indifférent aux commis souriants. Bien situé tout près de la piétonnière Church Street.
I basically stopped in here looking for Heady since they get shipments on Tuedsays. Struck out there, but I was very impressed with the beer selection They clearly cater to the craft beer crowd with a ton of stuff from places like Jacks Abbey, Cisco, Lost Nation, etc. etc. This would be a place I would shop at frequently if I lived in Burlington.
Well located just outside of Burlington town center. Cashier if friendly but I have no idea how knowledgeable she was for the beer and I don’t think she was there to help about beer. Selection is really good (often better than Winooski). The harder to find bottles stay longer and the selection as improved a lot since the first time I went 1½ year ago. Prices are good and good for the area. If you don’t need service, this is one of the best place to go in the area.
Visité le 08/11/13. Commerce un peu avachi ressemblant à un grand dépanneur mélangé à un magasin général. Fréquenté par des étudiants venus chercher de l’alcool pas cher... Les bières sont toutefois bien regroupées et dans une sélection impressionnante. Grande section réfrigérée. Personne de conseille les clients, que des caissiers. Prix atrayants.
