Was wondering if any of you locals up there could help me out? My in law is making a beer run for me (she lives up there) I was wondering what the going rate for heady topper is? 4 pack price or 6 pack price which ever it's sold and what is the price on a case? I don't want to have her looking for it if its pricy as hell

Only sold in 16oz can 4 packs. I am planning a trip out there with the family and want to pickup a case. I called a couple of stores and it seems to go for about $14 per 4pk.
Very limited distribution. Check the alchemist brewery website for a distribution map. Also goes very fast, the stores I called said they are usually sold out within a couple of days of delivery, every week!

It's about $75/case. Have the in-law call them first. I live 3 hours from the brewery and I know a lot of friends who have driven there only to find out they can't buy ANY. Not at stores. Not at the brewery. None available. I know a guy who drove 3 hours and struck out at Alchemist and also at Hill Farmstead. Spent another few hours driving to local stores that claimed they carried it, and struck out there, too. Drove home empty handed and defeated.

I have a friend who drives by Alchemist on his way home from work. I usually ask him to stop in during the week mid day and so far he's been able to score me 2 cases without anybody even flinching. So please pass that info on to your in-law.

Spend the $75 for the case. When people find out you have fresh Heady a lot of them will offer you $20 for a single can. Have that happen to me all the time. Local liquor store guys, etc.

They hold back on purpose, I tell you!

They only have one.

They have a gluten free beer contract brewed right now(celia)


The brew pub was destroyed by the floods while they were opening the cannery for HT. Theoretically they will make some of their other beers, but why would they want to produce anything else when they can produce one beer that cannot be kept in stock. Once they expand 3 or 4 more times, maybe they make some of their other beers. They just doubled HT production, BTW.

If you follow them on facebook, they'll tell you when the beer is available. I think they can on Mondays and Thursday/Fridays. If you arrive on those days, you're good to go.

i live in burlington (30 mins from the cannery in waterbury) and we get weekly shipment of heady topper to the liquor store around the corner from my place. the going rate here is $14 including tax for a 4 pack of cans. they go really really really fast (within an hour usually) so be sure to call ahead and know exactly when they are due to arrive.

Damnit. I am an IPA fanatic and still haven't had Heady Topper. Asked for it at my local spot and they said Connecticut can't get the beer.
