The Alchemist is a 7 barrel brew pub specializing in hand-crafted beer and casual pub fare. All of our ales have and will again flow directly from our basement brewery, which was designed and installed by our brewer and co-proprietor John Kimmich. We use only the finest imported malts and domestic hops available to bring you the tastiest and finest selection of beers in Vermont!
In addition to our house-made ales, we have an eclectic menu featuring fresh-from-the-farm Vermont products and seasonal produce. Our talented chefs serve delightful appetizers, grilled panini sandwiches, flatbread pizzas, vegetarian fare, hearty entrees and imaginative daily specials. Come in and enjoy a taste of Vermont in our cozy pub surrounded by the work of local artists!
And so it was, that just after Thanksgiving 2003 Proprietors Jennifer and John Kimmich turned their vision into reality and finalized renovations on Waterbury’s original Post Office.
Why don’t we sell growlers though? Quite simply, quality.
According to Brewer John Kimmich: “It is impossible to present a bottled version of the beer and have it taste identical to the draft version. I have a hard enough time letting someone else pour my beer, let alone watch it walk out the door to an uncertain future.
On the bright side, if you are drinking my beer, you’ll find yourself surrounded by some of the finest people on earth: our customers. The Alchemist Pub and Brewery, “Where the only beer to go is in your belly.”
