  • Beers below average quality for me. Not sure what to say. People super friendly. Nice out door space. The inside was closed.  more »
  • We had a good visit, with nice weather - we were able to sit outside on the lawn with our kids. The tasting room is closed, so you get your drinks from an outdoor bar. I imagine that when their...  more »
  • Great time in the Alchemist Beer Garden! It was a rainy day in Stowe, but that didn’t sTop them-or us! The building is closed for renovation, but they had a great bar set up outside serving the beer....  more »
  • Found the secret gem! Alchemist has a large parking lot and open space outside of the brewery. Inside you are able to partake in samples, book a tour, get March, and most importantly grab some beer to go. You have to follow the guidelines for the number of packs per brew that can be purchased from the helpful employees. You know that you're in the right place place when you smell the hops as you go inside!
  • What a beautiful clean place! We were here for its Oktoberfest. Good beer and nice atmosphere. Even my kids had a blast! We will come back again!
  • The beer lives up to its reputation, and it's nice now that full pours can be bought unlike in the past according to other reviews. If that was the case they should definitely stick with selling them while visiting because otherwise there wouldn't be enough to do. A sample is too little. Aside from that, there's only one tour late in the day and it's a sign up prior type of thing.
  • Great beer, wonderful owners and workers, and a top notch facility. Easy to stop by and purchase the beer and or merchandise you want and get out. Or if you want, can stay and sample beer. Beautiful artwork abounds and outdoor space pleasant as well with some disc golf. Should definitely stock up here for your return trip home!
  • The line is super long , however they are super efficient and the wait is not long. The beer is phenomenal, and keep a look out for the new beers. Heady Topper is a main stay, but Focal Banger is sooooo good
