Vt. woman charged with selling beer online

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) -- Vermont liquor investigators say a 28-year-old Burlington woman is facing charges she illegally sold five cases of a popular, hard-to-get beer online.

Investigators from the Vermont Department of Liquor Control say they spotted an online ad for Heady Topper.

Undercover investigators subsequently met with Stephanie Hoffman who provided 120, 16-ounce cans of the alcoholic beverage for $825.

Hoffman was subsequently cited into Franklin County criminal court to answer a charge of selling an alcoholic beverage without authorization.

Heady Topper is considered by some to be the best beer in the world. It's produced at a Waterbury brewery that recently had to close its retail operation because customers overwhelmed the location.

A message left at a number listed in Stephanie Hoffman's name was not immediately returned.
