Alchemist Heady Topper Will Ship, Despite Irene Damage

The Alchemist Brewpub in Waterbury, Vermont was devastated by flooding due to Irene Sunday night.

The brewery announced today that plans to ship Heady Topper will go on, despite what seems to be massive brewery damage.  The cannery exists outside the flood area, away from the brewpub.

Disaster strikes Waterbury. The Alchemist Pub and Brewery was ruined in a once in a generation flood on Sunday night August 28, 2011. While the cannery is fine and on target to open this coming Friday, the Pub will be closed for the foreseeable future. With our endless thanks and gratitude to our loyal and returning friends, customers and fans, we will be back. Stay tuned…

Heady Topper is an Imperial IPA
