My latest featured article for RateBeer’s The Hop Press… posted on Saturday, May 22th.
My wife and I have been in Myrtle Beach for the last week. The place we have rented is very nice, right on the beach and the weather has mostly been perfect for relaxing in the sunshine. Its a much needed rest for the both of us after a very hectic fall, winter and spring. Being the beer lover that I am, one of my favorite things to do while traveling on vacation is to sample some of the regional beer offerings.
I stopped by here a few weeks ago to check it out… in downtown Richmond, Vermont. My son had passed along a tip that they had a decent beer selection… very true! The owners were extremely nice and knowledgeable about the beer that they carried… pointed out the new arrivals and expressed an interest in my beer “collection” on RateBeer. Not a big store mind you, but they do carry a wide variety of beers; some of which I had not seen in Vermont yet. I bought a few to add to the collection and I’ll definitely be back…. 🙂
The Beverage Warehouse in Winooski is, without question, Vermont’s best place to “browse for beer”… I swear that I cannot leave that place without dropping $100 (or more!) for beer. They have more than 450 beers (“The most in Vermont”) and with the change in the state beer laws last summer, they are really starting to stock some truely fine beers. They also offer a “Free Pint Glass Friday” event most weeks… on 2/20 they will be hosting Vermont’s own Magic Hat Brewery and on 2/27 they will be hosting two great breweries… Brooklyn and Stone. Stone Brewery is one of my very favorite brew makers.
