Sadly you'll have to travel to Vermont to indulge in this 8% hoppy american classic. The good news is that the Alchemist brewery is expanding their capacity and will soon be serving areas a little further out. It's a quality brew.
I would recommend you make a trip to Stowe VT and stop at a pizza place called Piecasso's. They have Heady on the menu, so you can try it with their spicy pizza, whatever it's called. Great food, staff, place, and beer all in one package. Then when you leave, the liquor store across the street sells cans of Heady.
In fact, VT has some really good beer all over the place. Lawson's Finest Liquids is also a gem. They've got this IPA that's just incredible. You should go there this summer. Trust me.
