We stopped at Stowe on a road trip to Rhode Island. Do the Alchemist tour, our tour guide Kenny was 👍 Very informative tour and inspiring to see the owners’ commitment to the environment and the Stowe community. Of course the beer was outstanding and freshly brewed!!

My husband and I stopped at the Alchemist for the infamous Heady Topper. I am not a beer drinker, but since he knew it got such great reviews, he wanted to try the IPA. The brewery was fairly empty, due to the time of year we visited, but there were a few cars picking up orders. He bought several six packs of Heady Topper and Focal Banger, since we cannot get it in Pennsylvania. He definitely approved of the rating. He said it was some of the best IPA he's ever tried. We gave some to our friends who also agreed it was some of the best. Even if you're not a beer drinker, it's a cool building to visit.

We drove all the way out to Stowe to visit this brewery! It was a cold and rainy day and were surprised that there was no indoor seating available. We ordered our beer out at the small tent in the lawn and took a seat. Really wish the inside would have opened.

But…at the end of the day, what is better than a Heady Topper at the source!

I was told that I must go here and try a Heady Topper IPA. I don't care for IPAs, but I was assured it wasn't too hoppy (spoiler alert: it's very hoppy). We arrived at 5 pm on a Friday, could only buy a 4 pack (and turned out I hated it, it's not a bad beer, just not for me, but now I was stuck with 3 more). There was a live band and games on the lawn, and just as we sit down at about 5:30 pm, the live band shuts down, the chairs are being stacked and people are starting to leave. A brewery that closes at 6 pm on a Friday? Odd experience overall.

We had a good visit, with nice weather - we were able to sit outside on the lawn with our kids. The tasting room is closed, so you get your drinks from an outdoor bar. I imagine that when their tasting room is open, you may be able to get a small taste/sample of a beer or two (like most places) to see what you like. But outside, all they have is cans so you’re just guessing. I got one snd it was fine but too hoppy/strong for me, so I gave it to my husband. Also, there’s no food available there. But overall it was fine to spend an hour there on a nice day.

We didn’t get to experience everything at Alchemist due to COVID. Bars and microbreweries are still closed. However they have drive through microbrew pick up. We purchased 4 different micro brews. They are sold in 4 packs so we had a total of 16 cans. Sorry I can’t remember all the names. It was very good. We drank it all in three days. We will be back when they are fully open again.

Beer (Heddy Top) is excellent! However, no tours, can't go inside. Last week was a heat-wave. They did have a tent in their beer garden with tables and seating. It was soooo hot, though. We took some to-go in their very organized outside pick-up.

Went recently on a brew tour while visiting Stowe. We found it to be informative and entertaining. Kenny was an awesome guide, adding to the fun experience. We were able to sample some freshly brewed Heady Topper, yummy. Nice outdoor beer garden to relax and sip in afterwards. Do Go and enjoy yourself, best $20 I’ve spent in awhile.

Visiting from out of state. Heard this was one of the best breweries to go to and that Heady Topper was one of the best beers. Hadn't read the reviews before going there and didn't realize you couldn't get served inside.
So, it was just like having a can of beer on any lawn. I probably could've picked it up at the grocery store cheaper.

I was in town on business and booked an after work hours tour in advance. Great place and the tour was excellent. The guide was patient and very knowledgeable.

I liked the beers we sampled. The grounds are beautiful. I stopped earlier in the week and grabbed lunch at the beer garden as well as gifts for family.

It’s a must while in the area.
