Great to see better news for The Alchemist (Waterbury, VT) after losing their brewpub in the wake of Hurricane Irene. Heady Topper, a hoppy imperial IPA that hit cans shortly after the destruction will be available in Massachusetts the second week of February (about right now.) The brewery was finalizing the work on a cannery a few miles away from the brewpub last year. It was undamaged allowing the beer to ship out as planned. Since then, it has rocketed to the top of the beer geek want lists. It’s damn good too. Congrats to The Alchemist and the thirsty people of Massachusetts. This IPA is bitter, like the Patriots are feeling right now. [Boston.com]
SweetWater Pit & The Pendulum marks the second release in the brewery's corked & caged series. Brewed an American wild ale, brewed with fresh peaches from Titan Farms in South Carolina.
Wild Heaven Dionysus marks the brewery's first sour offering. A blend of six different sours, designed specifically for this cuvee.
