A nice shop in an out of the way location, but much closer to my work than the store in Winooski (also a nice shop). The staff greets you immediately upon entrance but doesn't hover. You will get all the attention you want but no more (I like to browse around in case something suddenly looks good). Well stocked with fresh malts and vacuum sealed hops. Yeast selection is medium to small but extremely fresh. They just don't sell old yeast. If you want something that's out of stock, they will have it in 2-3 days. An unexpected small treasure in a delightful funky little town. Positive Pie pizza is 3 doors away, with Hill Farmstead beers on tap. Returning to the main highway when you leave requires stopping on a very steep little hill with bad visibility; can be challenging, especially when roads are icy. Try to regard it as entertainment.

I was on my way back from a beer run when I saw the carboys in the window and had to turn around to go look.
The space inside was pretty small but it was packed with stuff. He had all the beginner equipment including the Ale Pale starter kit. There was also a nice selection of extra tools like brushes, corks, spoons, pots, ect.
I spoke with him a little bit about recipes. His book was organized by darkness of the beer with a nice picture in the upper corner. Really nice to be able to flip back to the dark stuff.
I was particularly interested in an oatmeal stout recipe which he priced out at ~$34. I felt like that was pretty reasonable in comparison to VHBS in Winooski.
I think this place has great potential, I just wish it wasn't so far away.
