Live in NYC so its extremely hard to get heady topper. Local shop got 1 case this week. was lucky enough to be there when it got dropped off.

where in NYC?


I live in Burlington, VT. I remember the days when people (myself included) would line up for an hour or more to get it. Now, it's available at every supermarket, gas station, corner store, etc. here. I still grab some every once in a while, but there are so many other amazing IPAs here in VT.

Yea everywhere has tons of local brews now. My mom's from Waitsfield, VT. Lawson's paired up with Two Roads in CT and expanded production went from a small brewery like Alchemist to now available across the country.  Alchemist definetly created a buzz with limited supply. Still pretty scarce outside of VT tho. I have noticed since COVID started that places in NYC are getting cases. The spot i bought it was the 3rd place i found with it but the other stores sold out in hours of posting on Instagram. There are better IPAs out now but always have to grab a 4 pack whenever I can.

CT/ Burlington has some good stuff to drink. We recently stopped by at von Trapp in Stowe and Vermont Artisan Coffee and I loved Citizen Cider in Burlington when we visited a few month ago.

Would be nice to meet for a cold one when this pandemics crab blows over.

We ate out for the first time since early March since we dad an out-of-town visitor and figured eating outside at a restaurant was safer than at home.

I had an Expedition Stout, which was a great Russian Imperial Stout. I will definitely look to picking up a four-pack.

Not surprising it was good because it is brewed by Bells.

Off to a fly fishing trip, so: Coors light, tin cup & fireball “whiskey”

Second Fiddle by Fiddlehead. Last year I bought sommelier beer glasses from the Alchemist and its been a great investment. Drinking good beer from the can doesn't do its justice. It really brings out the aromas and overall gives a totally different (better) experience to drinking beer. Highly recommend purchasing a good set of sommelier beer glasses if you don't already have them.
