Heady Topper Article
My last post was on hazy IPAs. I saw this article from Longreads the day after I wrote the post. It is an excellent article on Heady Topper, the beer from Vermont's Alchemist Brewery credited with starting the cloudy beer trend. The article details how Alchemist had its brewery wiped out by Tropical Storm Irene in 2011 and how the brewery's recovery from disaster and focus on brewing helped Heady Topper rise to cult status. Ultimately, it is an uplifting story about a beer that sounds fantastic and the people who make it.
