Hooray for the Alchemist expansion!

We are so excited the Alchemist is opening their new brewery with a public tasting room and retail store in July!

The Bevie Crew have been so grateful for them trusting us to be one of the majority sellers of Heady Topper during this time of expansion.  Now that their brand spanking new brewery is opening in July, it is time for us to go back to pre-bonus drops! As of June 27th we will be going back to the quantities we were provided before they closed the brewery to the public.

Because of the shift of more beer at the brewery, we can no longer guarantee that if you are here on time, that you will get Heady Topper.  That being said, we are blessed to still receive an amazing amount of Heady Topper from the Alchemist and we are wizards in stretching it out.

Cheers to a wonderful, local company who has done an incredible amount for communities across VT and the VT beer scene!

Wednesday | 8:00 PM
One (1) 4pk per person while it lasts, limited supply, it is possible that not everyone will get Heady Topper.

Thursday – 10:00 AM
First 2 (sometimes more!) people get a case then supply is broken down to 3, 2, 1, then 0 packs per person depending on the line.
