Heads up for beer.
This hoppy, floral Double IPA from Stowe, Vt.-based Alchemist Brewery, is one of the most-sought after craft brews in the country. That’s for good reason: Heady Topper tastes of summer, the Platonic ideal of a Double IPA. The only reliable way to buy it is at the brewery itself, and buyers are limited to four four-packs. There is a secondary market where it regularly retails for much, much more—if you can find it. If you are going to be in Stowe, check the Alchemist website to make sure they have it in stock.
$12.50 per four-pack, alchemistbeer.com
