I noticed the last review of Green Mountain Boys had been about 5 years ago, so here is an update. I last visited the place a couple of weeks ago and I swing by about once a month. This is the best beer store I have found in central VT. They have an excellent selection of bombers, especially from VT brewers and Stone and the prices are excellent. They had about every Rock Art bomber I had ever seen and several selections from McNeill's. As a bonus the place is also a bottle redemption center, which can be hard to find in the area. The only drawback I could find is that the staff isn't friendly enough to even find out if they know what they are talking about.

On the whole, I was completely let down by this place. I note the last review was from a while ago, so it appears things have changed. Either that or maybe I am spoiled by my local package stores down here in the Boston area.
At any rate, I had gone in expecting stuff from McNeill's, Rock Art, Long Trail, Otter Creek/Wolaver's, Magic Hat, maybe The Alchemist, and the only thing they really had of any remote interest were growlers of Rock Art. A few bombers from Magic Hat, but that was it for biggies. Everything else from the micros were the mainstream sixers in the fridge - Long Trail Ale, Hocus Pocus, Copper Ale, etc., all of which I can get down here. I had expected an array of bombers from all of the VT micros, but nothing doing. Completely unimpressed. I did notice some Unibroue products, but that was about it in terms of anything interesting.
The woman at the counter must have had a rough night the night before because she was almost uncommunicative as I bought two growlers of Rock Art and a bag of ice. On the way out I noticed a homebrew supply area.
The only reason why I would even mention this place to a fellow BA is for the Rock Art growlers.

Just down the road from Killington ski area, this store is the only place in the area to carry selections over and above macros and very common Vermont craft brews. Selection is very good. They carry nearly all the Vermont micros, including Rock Art and The Shed, and most from Mass, including Berskshire, plus lots of other micros. Also many great imports. The owner/manager was very helpful in making recommendations based on tastes, and was happy to not only sell singles, but put together mixed 6-packs and mixed cases. He also does a Vermont sampler case. Stop in when you're in ski town.

Selection here is not so great, but it is the best place I've seen in the Rutland/Killington/Woodstock area of VT. They had the locals, Magic Hat, Long Trail, Otter Creek, Kross, and Trout River. They had a few specialties like Chimay, Fullers, and cheap Lindemann's. They do get the special Magic Hat beers that have been coming out lately, but the guy I spoke to says these disappear fast. A small oasis in the macorswill world of Killington.
