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.
As of now we can confirm that Heady Topper will be pouring at Monk's Cafe around 6 pm. Each can will be $6. The beer will also be available tonight at 6 pm at Strangeloves for $7.
Look for the beer to also be pouring at these beer bars »
