Heady Topper

We love hops – that’s why our flagship Double IPA, Heady Topper, is packed full of them. Heady Topper was designed to showcase the complex flavors and aromas these flowers produce. The Alchemist has been brewing Heady Topper since 2003. This Double IPA is not intended to be the strongest or most bitter DIPA. It is brewed to give you wave after wave of hop flavor without any astringent bitterness. We brew Heady Topper with a proprietary blend of six hops – each imparting its own unique flavor and aroma. Take a big sip of Heady and see what hop flavors you can pick out. Orange? Tropical Fruit? Pink Grapefruit? Pine? Spice? There is just enough malt to give this beer some backbone, but not enough to take the hops away from the center stage.

The intensely smooth and rich roasted flavor is complemented by the unmistakable pretence of hops. The bitterness is held in check, preserving the flavors of dark chocolate. This ale is aggressively dry hopped with Citra to cut through it all. Hail Santa.

Dubbel Twubbel

Another old pub recipe, we're happy to bring you Dubbel Twubbel. Originally named so grown men at the bar had to ask for "Dubbel Twubbel", it is brewed with our Belgian Bastogne yeast and seven different barleys. The hops are Brewer's Gold and Maverick sourced from Michigan's Hop Head Farms. We also used dark candy syrup to give that classic Belgian Dubbel finish. The ester filled yeast character play quite well with the earthy hop character and bold malt base. Enjoy while you can!

Showcasing our Belgian Bastogne yeast, we are happy to bring another great Winter offering to you all! Sitting atop a fairly complex malt bill, we used dried figs, dates, and raisins in fermentation, which were prepared at Butterfly Bakery in Montpelier, VT. The fruits and malt work seamlessly, giving earthy and spiciness to the beer. A great sipping beer by the fire for those cold winter nights!
