The Alchemist is a small craft brewery located in Stowe, VT known for their infamous IPA ‘Heady Topper’. As the beer was beginning to gain popularity, the brewpub was decimated by an historic hurricane on August 28, 2011. The Alchemist rebuilt in July, 2016 with a new and modern brewery, ready to resume crafting.
The Alchemist name is synonymous with it’s Heady Topper beer, but not so much its others. Heady Topper is extremely difficult to obtain, it’s sold in small batches at very select stores in Vermont. In order to create the same feeling of exclusivity and craft for the whole brewery, the new Alchemist identity is a contemporary interpretation of alchemy and black magic.
