The Alchemist will release cans of Focal Banger and Petit Mutant today, Saturday, February 15th, at a lumber yard in Waterbury, Vermont. The two new cans from the much-heralded brewery will be released from 11am until they run out, which will likely be about 11:30 am. Seriously, if you’re just now reading this, you probably missed out on these cans. But fret not—the Alchemist is planning to have more of these one-day pop-up sales of their newly-canned beers in the future, according to the brewery’s blog. So just stay tuned and keep your car gassed for a beer trip.
Focal Banger is an American IPA and Petit Mutant is an American Brett ale. The Alchemist is famous for brewing Heady Topper, which many beer geeks swear is the greatest beer in the world. Sadly, there will be no Heady Topper at this pop-up sale. Cash only, one case per trip to the front of the line, and there’s only one port-a-potty at the site. So plan accordingly. That is all.
