As of a couple months ago, every Thursday we get a delivery from The Alchemist of their Heady Topper and Focal Banger beers, two starlets of the booming craft brewing industry. So now, instead of the old answer to the questions that arose when customers wondered where to buy Heady Topper (“Can I get Heady Topper at the Brattleboro Co-op? Where can I get it?”) which Tony used to have to say about 500 times a day (youcan’tgetitinthispartofVermontyouhavetogotoMontpelier) we can all now say “YES. It’s delivered every Thursday. Limit 3- four-packs per person for each beer, Focal Banger and Heady Topper. Come early, it goes fast.” The first time we got a delivery of the stuff, one of our local newspapers was here with a camera, and a photo of a mega beer geek with a four-pack in his hands landed on the cover. It was newsworthy.
Each month, Co-op employees nominate colleagues they want to honor, and a committee comes together to vote on a winner. This month Tim, a cook in our Commissary Kitchen, was selected. As his colleague stated: “He has such a great demeanor, always goes above and beyond of what is asked of him and always has even keel about him. He’s great!”
Each month, Co-op employees nominate colleagues they want to honor, and a committee comes together to vote on a winner. In April, Sean James in the Deli Kitchen was selected. As his colleague stated “Sean always goes above and beyond during his shifts by making sure his station and others are set in good shape. He never leaves without making sure everyone on the team is all set.” Thanks Sean for your dedication to the Co-op!
