Vermont is home to some of the best IPA’s in America, and The Alchemist is one of the breweries leading the charge with Heady Topper. In this episode we visit The Alchemist’s brand new brewing facility in Stowe, Vermont.
Known for Heady Topper and Focal Banger, two of the highest rated IPA’s in the world, we find out the how owners John Kimmich and Jen Kimmich got their start. They’ve had quite a journey to get where they are today, and in this extended episode we explore their brewing history and how they managed to beat a battle with mother nature and turn The Alchemist into a brewery that has set trends throughout the industry. From humble beginnings to world class winnings, this is The Alchemist Brewery.
