Flannels, maple syrup, Subarus, and Heady Topper
There’s a few reasons to make an 8 hour round trip to Waterbury, VT in one day, but only one matters. Forget cheese, forget ice cream, and forget maple syrup. The only real reason is to search for the holy grail of hops(just ask my fiancé Danielle). Heady Topper is a hop heads dream. Consistently rated one of the top beers on all the major beer blogs, Heady Topper is near perfection. This is The Alchemist’s benchmark brew and boy does Jon Kimmich really nail it. Citrusy, floral and piney this imperial(double) ipa shines from start to finish. If you’re able to get your hands on this beer, drink it fresh and drink it often, you won’t be disappointed.
