Last week, The Alchemist dropped a bit of a bombshell by announcing the closure of their retail location. A large portion of the decision was due to traffic and public access issues.
Good news, the brewery has found a new retail space in Waterbury Center. This new spot is adequate for traffic flow, and growth. This new spot should be open by Christmas, 2013.
In the meantime, extra Heady Topper (the extremely popular IPA, and the core of the business) will be sent to current accounts while the retail shop is closed.
Also, those looking for the planned seasonals by The Alchemist – check your local bars and restaurants.
Updates to the new retail build coming soon.
