Had higher expectations of the beer. The painted tanks were cool. Tasting was free just a small donation was asked for.

What a cool venue. The facility is very unique and offers free samples. I’m not a big fan of their beer but it has a huge following so I know I’m in the minority. They pay a lot of attention to beer education and local...More

1st off, I was so impressed by the building itself. Gorgeous architecture. Very inviting. You cannot buy pints inside but they do give out ample samples. Remember to bring a cooler with you as the beer must remain cold. Unfortunately we didn't know and had...More

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.
