Great beer! Alchemist has improved retail sales at the brewery. We waited in line for 30 minutes and had free tastes and opportunity to buy one of best beers in the country.

We stopped by on a busy Saturday afternoon and we're greeted by a long line out the door, but it moved very quickly. Had a tasting, bought some shirts and bought some of the, "BEST BEER ON THE PLANET!". Love this place.

Stopped on Friday on our way in and was busy but not crowded. Samples are free. Went back Saturday morning at 11:30 and it was packed - even with the weather at 0 degrees.
