Free tastings of 3 beers, fast service, world class beers, great vibe space and graphics, outdoor area with frisbee golf, huge parking lot. Only downside is you can’t buy a pint or take your tasting outside. Otherwise one of the best set up brewery/welcome centers I’ve been too!

This place was awesome! We went at about 1 PM on a Wednesday in May, and we basically had the place to ourselves (like maybe 5 other patrons). So we hung out with the staff, had each of the three sample drafts multiple times, they were great! Literally no line to check out, super friendly staff, answering questions, dishing out the free beer etc. Such a good time, especially considering it really just the store/brewery with a couple samples on draft, like not really a tasting room etc.

Anyone who rates this beer less than a perfect 5 rating is a ding dong

In terms of quality this place makes incredible beer! The vibe and service is also very exceptional! I just wish they had more than 6 beers in rotation at a time. As an out of stater I try to load up on as much of their beer as I can when I make the trip up. To sum it up, incredible beer, great service, they just might want to expand their offering at the brewery.

The building is awesome looking, almost worth driving to see it. I've waited in line from 0 seconds to 40 minutes. The selection and allotments are great. There is no food and absolutely nothing to do there. It is so much easier to get their beer here than it use to be, waiting up to 40 minutes for the amount of cases you can get is totally worth it. If you consider quality, variety, and price, then this is probably the best brewery in the NE and maybe the country.

Short lines. Very open space with plenty of natural light. Good view of the brewery section. Excellent service all around. Sample pours, but only on a few of the beers.

The first brewery we visited in Vermont. We were first in line when it opened at 11 so it wasn't overcrowded. Vibe when it filled up was very good. The building itself is impressive with high ceilings, typical Alchemist artwork even on the ceiling and a very good peak at the brewery operation. Service was great and we were impressed with the availability of free samples of their 3 top beers. Purchased Heady Topper, Focal Banger, Crusher and Holy Cow. An excellent experience.

Would be great to add a beer hall/ seating area, and the existing tasting and vending area gets crowded quickly, but an awesome place with friendly and down-to-earth staff.
