Finally found the holy grail of craft beer. When I arrived just before 11 am (the advertised opening time) people were already coming out with beer. Free tasters is a nice touch. Plenty of swag available include free bumper stickers (note this Bissell Brothers!). Very...More

Tasted 3 great beers and then purchased. Not much else to do there LOL but people sure do BUY! Went here twice to capitalize on the Renowned Heady Topper!

Great beer! Alchemist has improved retail sales at the brewery. We waited in line for 30 minutes and had free tastes and opportunity to buy one of best beers in the country.

We stopped by on a busy Saturday afternoon and we're greeted by a long line out the door, but it moved very quickly. Had a tasting, bought some shirts and bought some of the, "BEST BEER ON THE PLANET!". Love this place.

Stopped on Friday on our way in and was busy but not crowded. Samples are free. Went back Saturday morning at 11:30 and it was packed - even with the weather at 0 degrees.

Thoroughly enjoyed the brewery tour while on a bachelorette beer tour. Heddy Topper was a must on our list and it did not disappoint.

These folks really know their beer! Heady Topper is amazing as is Focal Banger. Limited supplies make a visit to the brewery a must when in the area. Friendly service made it even more pleasant. Check it out!

There's no tour but you can view the brewery and there's a tasting area. You drive through scenic Stowe. I've been to funner breweries but my husband was glad we visited.
