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.

Funky, mod brewery with very good beers. Tastings were reasonable and people were extremely nice, Enjoyed the stop.

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.

As the mule I can say this is a good brewery stop. Yes, the beer is awesome but I like that they have this figured out. We knew in advance how much beer was going to be available to us and the parking and line...More

Free beer tasting, very clean, some free stuff and a great selection of beer to purchase. We visited in September. There were no lines and all of the different brews were available for purchase
