This place is very much hyped according to my local family. I dont really see why. Their best IPA is good, but IPA is all they do. Place is very new and looks really good, but for my liking lacks a bit of atmosphere. Sure...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.

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!
