Tis the season for online shopping, just don't buy any Heady Topper beer online from Vermont. One Burlington woman is now facing charges for illegally selling five cases of beer online. 

Investigators from the Vermont Department of Liquor Control spotted an online ad for Heady Topper. Many beer drinkers know that Heady Topper is considered to be one of the best beers in the world.

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."

Let this be a lesson to you while shopping online, be careful of a "too good to be true deal". It's probably not something you want to deal with.
