The Alchemist Brewery in Vermont is considered by many as one of the best breweries in the United States and its Heady Topper as one of the top beers in the world. In fact, it’s currently ranked number one by Beer Advocate.
And for one of the first times ever, Heady Topper will be available in Philadelphia beyond the cans your friends brought back from their ski trip.
According to the Alchemist’s Facebook page, John Kimmich and Joel Hartman of Alchemist are coming to Philadelphia today with a truck full of Heady Topper. They’ve announced that the beer will be available at five bars around happy hour this evening.
Last night at Brü Craft and Wurst on Chestnut Street, Delaware Valley Legacy Fund hosted its wildly successful monthly OurNightOut networking mixer, and boy was it packed. Sources tell me more than 250 folks came out in the cold to mingle, drink some suds and try some of the Bavarian-inspired grub Brü is known for.
